15. Chapter 15 : My Nightmare's Dream

Helen's POV


It was dark. That all I saw. Darkness.

I could hear my breathing as I started moving my hands to look for a wall or anything.

A light suddenly switched on. 

I tenaciously walked to it until I stood under it.

When I looked up, I noticed that light was high up from the floor.

I curiously looked at it until the brightness of the light started to burn my eyes. 

I turned in a full circle, hoping that another light would appear, but it didn't

My instinct was to sit on the floor, so I did. 

With my legs criss-crossed under me, I stared into the depth of darkness that stared back at me.

After what seemed like hours, a light finally switched on. 

Just like the one I was sitting under, but a tall figure stood under it.

I was suddenly struck with deja-vu. My mind flashed back to when I had that dream of Brad.

I knew I shouldn't be scared, but I was suddenly scared shitless.

I quickly stood up and before the figure could say anything, I broke into a sprint.

In the other direction, I ran.

Into the darkness. Not looking back.

I knew that I could randomly slam into a wall, but that didn't stop me. 

After running for a couple of minutes, I started loosing my breath and getting tired.

I slowed to a steady jog.


I stopped dead in my tracks.

It was the same voice that I heard back in that cabin. 

It was Calum's voice.

I turned around.

Faced with darkness and nothing else.

"Calum?" I asked.

It has to be him.

There was no answer.

"Calum?" I asked again.

"Why did you run?" 

My breath hitched.

"I said, why did you run?"

"I-I didn't, I mean I did,  but I though it was.." I trailed off.

"You thought it  was who?" 

"Brad," I replied silently.

"Oh, him," He said angrily.

A light suddenly switched on and a tall muscular figure stood under it.

"Come closer," He said.

The voice beckoned me closer as if I were under a spell. My feet moved forward until I stood in front of the person.

I got a better look at the figure.

It was Calum.

My beautiful Greek God.

He smiled that gorgeous smile and pulled me into his chest.

I hugged him tightly and I felt his muscular arms wrap around my waist.

His body was warm and comforting.

"Hello, darling," He whispered.

"Hi honey," I said.

He chuckled.

I didn't want to let go. I wanted to hold him forever.

Just have him here.

He pulled away and cupped my cheeks.

Slowly, he pressed his lips against mine.

It felt real

His lips were still as soft and plump as I remember them.

"I missed that," He said against my lips.

I nodded, my eyes closed.

He tilted my chin up and my eyes fluttered open. 

I looked into his beautiful brown eyes.

A smile danced across the corners of his lips.

"What?" I asked.

"You're beautiful."

I blushed and looked down.

"Why do you do that?" He asked.

"Do what?"

"You look at the ground and blush," He chuckled.

"I don't want you to see me with red cheeks," I said.

"But it lets me know I still have an affect on you."

"Of course you have an affect one me Calum."

'Turning Pages' by Sleeping at Last started playing.

I looked at Calum, my eyebrow arched.

He smiled and stepped back.

Bowing slightly, he extended his hand.

I glared at him, but smiled and placed my hand on his. 

He grabbed it and lightly pulled me to his chest.

His hands went to the small of my back and I wrapped my arms around his neck.

We slowly started moving to the rhythm of the piano, violins, and other classical instruments.

I've realized that Calum and I haven't danced, like an actual  dance with slow and steady music. The last time Calum and I danced, we were at the New Year's party, and we ended up grinding up on each other.

I pushed those thoughts aside and rested my head on his chest as we flowed to the music.

'I've waited a hundred years but I'd wait a million more, for you.'

'Nothing prepared me for what the privilege of being yours would do.'

'If I had only felt the warmth with in your touch, if I had only seen how you smile when you blush. Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough. I would have known,  what I was living for, all along.'

'What I've been living for.'

I listened to the lyrics carefully.

Calum was whispering them in my ear.

It was truly a beautiful song.

Calum suddenly pulled away, but still held my hand. He spun me around before bringing me back to his chest.

He was smiling down at me and I smiled up a him.

'Your love is my turning page, only the sweetest words remain.'

'Every kiss is a cursive line, every touch is a redefining phrase.'

'I surrender who I've been for who you are, nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart.'

'If I had only felt how it feels to be yours, I would have known, what I've been living for all along.'

'What I've been living for.'

We moved swiftly to the soothing sound.

'We're tethered to the story we must tell. When I saw you, well I know we'd tell it well.'

'With the whisper, we will tame the vicious scenes, like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees.'

Calum grabbed my hand twisted me around.

My back was now pressed against his chest, his arms around my stomach as he still held my hands.

He rested his chin on my head as we moved slowly.

I felt his breath on my skin.

He pressed his lips on my shoulder.

A tingle when up my spine. But it was a good feeling.

Calum moved his lips from my shoulder, to my neck.

He pushed my hair away and I felt his lips on my neck.

"You're absolutely gorgeous," He whispered.

I bit my lip.

"I love you," He said.

"I love you too," I breathed.

"Remember that."

I nodded.

"I'll always be there for you, Helen."

I suddenly gasped and woke up.

I was breathing heavily and I looked around.

The moon shone from my see-through black curtains. It was bright and full.

Full moon.

I took a deep breath.

"It's just a dream," I whispered to myself.

A very real and life-like dream.

The feeling of Calum's warmth disappeared and so did he.

Oh, would I do anything to dream that dream again.

To just have him in front of me.

To have him say 'I miss you'. To just kiss him.

I remembered the last thing Calum said in my dream.

"I'll always be there for you, Helen."

I put my head in my hands and cried.

"Except you're not Calum," I whispered.
