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.


26. Time For Me To Help


It was the third day of our trip to Melanie and Holter, Romnly is getting bigger by the minute, now she is up to my waist. We stopped at night fall, cooked our meal, and rested around the fire Romnly made for us. All through the trip, Lanna and Hutch flew through my head in a never ending swirl. My mood was getting worse the more I thought of both my friends on that ship somewhere out at sea. 

"Tomi?" Patten asked, snapping me out of my daze. Romnly was curled around him protectively, her blue eyes piercing mine.

"Sorry, what did you say?" I asked, trying to look back on what just had passed. 

"What's up?" he asked, as though he had lived in the real world for the longest time. I smiled. 

"What do you mean?" I asked, knowing exactly what he meant. 

"Are you okay? You seem distant ever sense we left the palace." I nodded my head, not wanting to come to grips with what was going on with my feelings. "You are not okay, talk to me." Patten said softly, and his voice made me want to give into him and tell him everything that went on on that ship. "Tomi?" He asked again. Maybe it was a smart idea to tell him. 

""I want to say I'm okay, but right now, I'm not sure if I really am." I said embracing my knees.

"I'm here, you can tell me anything." He said while Romnly just starred at me, her eyes coxing me onward.

"Fine. I'll tell you everything, not because you asked, but because I need to get it off my chest or I will burst with the feelings kept inside me." I paused, and he nodded. "I woke up on that ship with five men surrounding me. One of them hit me. A man who I thought was the captain stopped them. His name was Hutch," I paused again, trying to hold back the tears threatening to fall from my eyes as I said his name. "Hutch untied me, Gracie and Finel, and threatened if I tried to leave the ship there would be consequences. I listened to him of course, scared by what he had done, and by his eyes... His eyes were two different colors. I explored the ship and even came to make a friend, Lanna." I said remembering how she gave me Hutch's clothes... the same clothes I wore now. I hadn't changed since the last day on the ship. 

"Are you alright?" Patten asked, and I realized tears had started to fall from my face. I wiped them quickly away. 

"Yeah, just the memories are still fresh within my mind." Patten gave me a supporting smile and I continued. "I somehow managed to gain the trust of every single person on that ship. Hutch and I were growing closer, the same went for Lanna and I. She had this cute little crush on Hutch, and I kinda set them together. They dated for awhile until we were captured by a witch." I paused again, remembering Hutch's face afterward. 

"Go on." Romnly persisted, her eyes kind. I nodded, smiling as well. 

"She forced me and Hutch to kiss. After I set up Lanna and him, it just didn't feel right. But we kissed, and it was probably the best kiss of my life." I said smiling to myself, bringing my fingers to my lips, remembering the sensation of the kiss, the intensity of it. "The witch freed us. Lanna forgave me easily enough, and Hutch went back to his normal stern self when he was around me. I expected as much, so I wasn't disappointed." I said, a yawn escaping my lips. "Then Emma found us with Maulduen. Boy! does she look different!" I said smiling, remembering Captain's face when he found out I was Emma's best friend. "Hutch took Gracie, Finel and I ashore and we kissed agian!" I said, my face going red. Patten smiled.

"That's great Tomi! I mean, not great that you had to leave him... but great that you two found each other here." He said, and Romnly rolled her eyes.

"Thanks for hearing me out." I said, pulling the coat tighter around me, trying to grasp the sent of the sea from it, and to put it to memory.

"You should go to sleep, you look tired." Patten said throwing a blanket over to me. I smiled, and quickly fell asleep without arguement.

After three days of riding on horse back we made it to Brooke's cabin. Holter greeted us at the door and offered to tie up the horses. We sat at a table as Brooke walked in.

"Hello, you must be Tomi, I am Brooke." She offered her hand and I shook it. Melanie made her way slowly to the table. "Melanie, this is Patten, remember, Emma's husband?" She only nodded in his direction.

"Hey, Tomi." She said smiling. She sat at the table. As Holter walked in I saw her straighten her outfit and fix her hair. "Where is Emma?" She asked

"She wanted to stay at the castle and finish a few things." I said, Patten just looked out the window longingly. A beautiful, blue eye appeared through the window. "Ahh" I shrieked jumping out of my chair. The eye backed up startled, "What was that." Melanie glanced toward the window. 

"Oh, that's just Jura. Want to come meet her?" She led us outside. Not one but two huge dragons sat outside. One white, the other red. "This is Jura and that's Julionna." She pointed to the white one and then to the red. Romnly hopped out the door. 

"Hi, I'm Romnly. This is Patten and Tomi. Hey do you like to swim? I noticed a lake is nearby. Can we go swimming?" 

"Sure." Jura said leading her toward the lake. The three dragons left. Brooke built a fire and we all sat around it telling stories. I told a short story of the sea not getting into to much detail. Melanie told about her 'first' time flying. And Patten told about his boring experience of waiting at the castle for his Queen to rescue him. Jura, Julionna, and Romnly returned an hour later with two elk. We fell asleep under the stars.
