New Dawn

Emma and Melanie have returned from Narnia, but they aren't the same person they were. Things have changed them, and they won't be the same, and how will they face the real world knowing that they will never see Patten and Holter again.

This is the second book in the New Series the last book was New Kingdom, so if you haven't read that book, you should start there. This is a Narnian Fanfiction - thank you.


6. Like a Dream


I held Patten's hand all the way back home, never letting go for anything. And so once we got to the house, I held on even tighter. "This is our house." I said walking up to it. 

"These don't look like anything in Narnia. It's humongous!" Patten said in awe, everything during the whole care ride was the boys being in awe. 

"Yeah, it's going to take some time to get used to everything, but I am here, Melanie and I will help you two." I said, looking at Holter, who's eyes were bugging out of his head. I opened the door and stepped inside. "Grandma! Grandpa! Mom! We are home!" I yelled. Gracie ran around the corner and knocked Finel to the ground, her tail wagging. 

"Your mom isn't home sweetie-" Grandpa Casper said coming around the corner, looking surprised. "And who are these fine gentlemen?" He asked. 

"Well, um..." Melanie started. 

"They are from Narnia." Grandma said coming into the room. 

"Well, yes, they are." I said looking up at Patten. 

"I should have known." Grandpa Casper said. "The confused look of someone new to this world. I was the same, and it took your grandma and the other siblings to coach me into not being so weird." Grandpa said. Patten bowed, as did Holter. 

"I don't believe it. One of the queens of old. And King Caspian. What an honor." Patten said, I smiled. They stood back up.

"So, how has Narnia changed sense we left?" Grandma asked. "The girls wouldn't tell us anything."

"Nothing much, I mean Elves came into the picture, but that isn't much." Holter said rubbing his ear.

"Let me guess. You two are Elves?" Grandpa Casper asked.

"Yes sir. We are." Patten said. "Is that alright that we are dating your granddaughters?" My grandpa laughed and nodded.

"Why even ask such a stupid question!" Grandma exclaimed.

"Well, we weren't really accepted in Narnia, so why here? Your granddaughters were the ones who changed that." Patten said, I leaned up and kissed him on the cheek.

"Well, we'll show you two to the guest rooms." Grandpa Casper said walking further into the house. We walked after him, and found our way into the first guest room, which we left Holter and Melanie in to talk some more. Then we walked into another room across the house. "Now then, we will just leave you two to talk. Tomi, you should go home now, it's getting late." Tomi nodded, but stayed where she was. Grandpa left the room.

"You two don't do anything rash, I will be talking to you Emma, tomorrow." I laughed as Tomi left the room. Patten was sitting on the bed, looking up at me. I stood in front of him, and he grabbed my waist, pulling me closer to him.

"I missed you." He said, as I wrapped my arms around his neck.

"I missed you too." I said than kissed him. I sat beside him on the bed and snuggled close to him. He wrapped his arm around my shoulders and kissed the top of my head. We scooted back to where we were sitting agents the wall, I laid down, and put a pillow, then my head on his lap. 

"People here stare at me." Patten said blankly rubbing my back. 


"Yeah. I don't know what to do or say. I mean, I've only been here for like two hours." He said.

"It's because you look like a super model, no one here is used to seeing beauty like you and Holter. It's very inhuman, which makes sense, sense you two are Elves." I said picking up my head to look at him. He had a very cute, confused look on his face, and I kissed his nose. 

"Thank you." He said. 

"For what?"

"Well, for everything." I laid my head down again, a smile on my face.



Neither I nor Holter said a word only gazed into each others eyes. He pulled my close and kissed my forehead. I kept my head near his lips and closed my eyes. I listened to his slow breathing. "I missed you so much." he whispered. 

"I missed you too." I whispered back. We were laying on the bed, my head next to his, his arms wrapped around me. We didn't say another word, only laid like that. I almost fell to sleep, when my mom came into the room. 

"Oh! Sorry! Why does this continue to happen?" She asked to herself. "Your sister and her boyfriend were doing the same thing when I walked into his room." She spoke a little louder. "It's time for dinner." Then she left the room, making a b-line for the dinning room. I laughed sitting up, Holter did the same, and we slowly walked to the dinning room, holding hands. 

"Nice for you two to join us!" Patten said laughing. He was sitting next to Emma, who had a smile on her face, a real smile. 

"Well, we heard that food was going to be here." Holter said sitting down across from Emma, I took the seat across from Patten. We sat there for a while, not talking about anything in particular, then Grandma and Grandpa came into the room caring dishes of food, followed by Mom who carried the plates and silverware. 

"So how old are the both of you?" Mom asked, and Emma and I looked at each other, thinking of what to say. 

"I'm 20, and my brother here is 17." Patten said with a smile, surprising both Emma and I. 

"20. . . So your in college?" She asked skeptically. 

"I do believe so." He pulled out a note which had a bunch of stuff on it. "I go to Southeastern Oklahoma State University." I watched Emma's eyes bug out of her head, and felt mine do the same. 

"A good college, whats your degree?" Mom said, a smile on her face. 

"I'm planning on becoming a teacher." 

"What grade or grades?" 

"All grades, I plan on becoming a gym teacher, I like to stay active." Emma's eyes were still bugging out of her head, and Holter just laughed. 

"Aslan gave us sheets of paper that says what we would be good at in this world." Holter whispered in my ear, I nodded smiling. 



I looked over at Patten, and I could tell my eyes were bugging out of my head, he just laughed, and squeezed my hand. Dinner was short, we had lasagna with garlic bread - and it was delicious. Patten and Holter had never had anything like that before, and they ate like it was their last meal ever. We barely had enough for the seven of us. 

After dinner we went to bed, me and Melanie in our room, the boys in theirs. And I had the realization that Grandma and Grandpa had other rooms, and we were sharing one? What was their logic? Anyway, we went to sleep, me on the top bunk, and Melanie in her bed on the bottom. I had one of the best nights in my life, no nightmares, no dreams, only sleep. And it was amazing. I woke in the morning, stretching, happy, though the day before only seemed to be a dream, nothing more. It didn't seem real. 

But when I walked into the living room, he was sitting there, in all his beautiful glory. I walked over to him and sat next to him, laying my head on his shoulder. "Hey," He whispered kissing the top of my head. 

"Hi." I answered back. "How was your sleep?" I asked looking up at him. 

"It was good, that bed is really comfy." I laughed. "So, what are we going to do today?" 

"I don't know, I would normally start the day off by sparring Melanie in the backyard, but sense she is sleeping. . . " He laughed standing up. 

"You don't by chance have another sword besides your own?" 

"Come on." I grabbed his hand and lead him back to my room, got my swords and walked into the back yard; after changing into something more suitable for sparing, as did Patten. I wore his old clothes, the ones he gave me 100 years ago in Narnia. 

We now were in the back yard, a sword in my hand, a sword in his. His smile widened as I lunged forward, swinging my sword for his head. He blocked the blow quickly moving behind me slapping my butt with the sword flat. I spun around, and swoosh - he was gone. Up in a tree he chuckled, just like in Narnia. "Your better!" He said jumping down, doing two flips in the air before landing. I smirked and lunged at him, swinging my sword. He blocked every blow I could throw at him, and I blocked most of the attacks he countered with.

We fought longer than I had in a long time, and soon I was getting tired. But Patten? - he was just as strong, just as fast as when we started. Soon he knocked my sword out of my hand, swung around to where he was behind me, grabbed my waist, pulled me back against him, then took his sword and held it to my neck. "You've gotten better, but not quite as good as me." Then he kissed my cheek, spinning me out of his arms like a dance. From the porch grandpa clapped his hands smiling. 

"Well done! You are the first to beat Emma sense she came back from Narnia!" He exclaimed making Patten smile handing me the sword. 

"He's always been able to beat me, ever sense we met." I said. 

"Well, not quite."


"When I was blind."

"That doesn't count, you were blind. How was that even a fair fight?"

"It's more fair than us fighting now, I will every time just because I can see you." Patten said taking my hand. We sat down in the yard. For winter, there was no snow on the ground, and it was decent weather to just sit here without anything other than pants and a sweatshirt on. Of course I had on less, as did Patten. Grandpa went back inside, taking my swords in with him - he insisted. 

"You know what?" I asked leaning my head on his shoulder. 


"You two look too much like people in the olden days, I think Melanie should give you two a make over, starting with a hair cut, though I think I will miss this shaggy mess." I said smiling, ruffling his hair with my fingers. 

"Okay? When do we start?"

"When they wake up I guess." 

"How about after you two go take a shower." Holter said I looked back at him, he was holding Melanie's hand, and was making a motion of wafting the stink out of the air. I laughed. 

"Okay, Okay." Patten said standing up, followed by me.
