I walked into the big gates of the school nothing change as always, same old fake grass with clusters of people everywhere, teachers near by and some people playing down ball.
I walked pass the main office and…oh joy Zenji, and his evil group of clones ‘as I call them’. Zenji is my cousin, his taller then me, has short black curly hair, pale skin and is also four months younger then me. ‘Please don’t see me, please don’t see me’
‘Crap’ “oh hey Zenji”
“What you doing”
“Ah… walking… what about you”
“Talking to me mates”
“Ok…umm… I got to go… bye”
“Bye Nyki” he said as I rushed off. ‘Thank god that’s over’
Still worked up, I rushed over to the doors of the locker room, which where locked of course. I finally relax a little and then something touched my shoulder, I jumped. All I could hear was a giggle, so I turned slowly to find my best friend Anna, standing giggling and laughing at my reaction.
“Hey that’s not funny Anna” I said to her in a sum what serous voice.
“Nar… it was just plain hilarious” she replied still giggling to her self.
Then I poked my tongue out and made a childish noise and turned to face the locker room again.
Anna is taller then me by heaps, she has brown hair, which she normally wears up in a ponytail, she also has brown eyes, her skin is pale and she is always happy to see me.
Anna tugged at my school bag, “oh come on Nyki, you act like a child some times.”
“And you don’t” I said as I turn to face her.
“ Ok well I do to, but…”
“But what” I said angrily
“Oh ok Nyki… I give I’m sorry” she said pleading to me.
“That’s more like it,” I said grinning at her.
She hug me as the teacher walked passed. When she stopped a small black piece of paper fell down on to the cold hard concrete.
“What’s this?” she said curiously, as she bent down to pick it up.
“I don’t know” I replied, as I stared to shake all over ‘it can’t be it, I ripped it up I was sure of it, I ripped it up, didn’t I?’
Anna held it in her palm of her hand and flipped it once or twice before opening it. Then she read out that cold hard sentence that I was dreading it had in side it. ‘I’m you and your me we are one’
“Is this written in pen or blood?” she said flipping it over again.
“Gimmie that” I shrieked as I snatched it off her hand and ripped it into a million pieces.
“What’s that about?” she asked me in a sort of pissed off tone.
“Oh nothing… its umm…. Someone’s sick joke that’s all” I said still shaking
“Oh Nyki are you ok? Your shaking…” she said in a concerned voice
“Oh… umm… yer I’m fine” I replied trying to reassure her.
“Oh if you say so…” she replied not convinced.
Five minuets of silence later, the teacher came passed again and opened the locker room door for us. ‘Thank god’ (I’m thinking that a lot today) I jogged over to my locker, with Anna close behind me. I bent down to my pad lock and unlocked it. My books came tumbling down on top of me and scatted around the room, ‘Owww’.
“Need some help” came a voice behind me.
“Umm… yer would be nice” I gowned.
A hand came down and grab mine, and pulled me up from under my books.
“Thanks” I muttered as I looked up to see whom it was that help me. I was staring strait at nun other then Maddie, a very sweet red head girl, who was glad to help whenever she could. I guess she just liked to help people.
Maddie smiled “no problem, Nykira, anytime” then she skipped over to her locker.
I bent down and stared to pick up my books and place them in my locker. When out of one of my books fell out a small black piece of paper. This time I screamed at the top of my lungs, dropping the books I had in my hand on to the floor. As I did all the people who where still in the locker room turned and stared at me like I was crazy. ‘No, no, no, not this, no!!’
After about two seconds Anna came rushing out of the classroom and stood beside my shaking body. She quickly realized what the problem was, she looked strait at the black note, picked it up and ripped it to a million pieces. Then walked over again and put an arm around me.
“Nothing to see here… go back to your lockers” she yelled at everyone
“Thanks” I muttered softly
“Oh Nyki, someone sick joke I see, relax Nyki its gone, come to class” she told me picking up my books for class and shoving me off to my seat.
* * *
Anna didn’t leave my side all through to recess. To make sure I was all right and that no more black notes showed up.
“Oh Anna there all gonna think I’m crazy if they don’t already” I sobbed
“No there not” Anna told me
“Yer they will, I screamed at the sight of a black piece of paper.” A tear ran down my face.
“Nyki, oh Nyki, relax no ones gonna think your crazy”
“Yes they will”
“No they wont”
“They will, they all ready think I’m a freak and none of the guys will ever like me” I stared to cry
“Oh Nyki, not this again”
I kept on crying as Anna put her arm around me again.
“Nyki, your pretty and nice, and a fantastic friend, the right guy just hasn’t come now relax, you have heaps of time, and you’re only in year ten.”
“Said the girl who has had at least ten boyfriends” I said rudely.
Anna growled at me “snap out of this, these notes have made you go haywire, please Nykira you’re making me panic.” She said as worried as she sounded.
“Ok ill stop” I told her wiping away the last of my tears.
“Now have I got, my old hyperactive friend back?” she boasted.
“I guess so” then the bell rang.
* * *
I was in art, with out Anna, because she had food when I had art. But she was reluctant to leave me when I was in this state and plus the black notes she was worried. The last thing she said before I went to art was ‘if you need me just come to the food room and I will gladly leave class’, oh Anna what would I do with out you.
I enter art and sat down next to Maddie, in my usual seat. Maddie looked over at me and smiled as Mr. Shinoest walked in and started his talked of the day… ‘Blah, blah, blah, blah’… after that I turned to Maddie,
“What are we doing?”
“Oh Nykira, weren’t you listening”
“Umm…no I missed what he said”
She shock her head at me “we have to get a visual art diaries and draw pictures of the seasons”
“Thanks Maddie” I said as I skipped over to the yellow cupboard with our visual diaries in it.
I looked up into the cupboard for my diary, which took about three seconds to find, but the problem was that some idiot moved it to the top shelf. ‘Err… everyone knows I’m too short to reach that stupid shelf!!!!’ I stood there not moving for a few minuets, trying to figure out how on earth I’ll reach that stupid shelf. Someone tapped me on the shoulder again. Then again with me and jumping. I turn to face the poor person I was going to have a go at for making me jump.
“Hey Nykira, ya need some help getting your book” Greg said looking down at me with his brown eyes. Greg was a giant, no joke he was literally a giant, I think he may have been at least six foot already maybe even taller then that.
“Yes that’ll be great Greg” ‘yer problem solved’
Greg grab my book as easy as buttering toast, then handed it down to little me. “Thanks” I said to Greg as I skipped off back to my seat. ‘Lucky I didn’t have a go at him for making me jump, other wise I wouldn’t have my book’
Finally I open the diary to draw these pictures of the seasons. As I peered at the blank sheet of paper I was lost on what to draw, so I look over at Maddie’s work to see what she had done so far. Maddie had drawn a whole heap of flowers. ‘I guess that’s spring’ she had also drawn a snowman and a sun. ‘That’s interesting’ I tapped Maddie on the shoulder and she was the one that jumped. ‘Not me I didn’t jump, yer do the party dance, and I didn’t jump’
“Err, sorry for scaring you Maddie” ‘well I said sorry, cause I’ve been jumping all day, ok not all day, but you know what I mean’
“Oh that’s ok Nykira, what did ya want me for?”
“Well I was lost on what to draw can you please help me?”
“Yer sure Nykira” she told me ‘always happy to help’
A knock came at the art room door and guess what I jumped ‘err’.
“Come in” Mr. Shinoest yelled across the room.
The door swung open and a small girl walked in, her hair was black and dead straight, and she smiled while she spoke.
“Sorry to interrupted Mr. Shinoest, but may I please borrow Nykira for a minuet.”
“Yer sure” he replied happily
I grunted as I stood up and walked past her in to the hall, outside the classroom. Then the small girl closed the door.
“Umm… this is for you Nykira, the umm… office gave it to me to give to you” she told me as she handed me the note, then stared to walk away.
“What’s this for?” I yelled back at her, as I waved the black envelop back and forth.
“I don’t know?” she yelled back then disappeared around the corner. ‘Err’
“What in earth would I need this for?” I muttered as I flipped the envelope over to the front. It read ‘To Nykira’ who would want to write a letter to me, I never got a letter before. I turned it over again and opened it.
Inside was a black note, ‘my day just went from worst to worst possible out come on earth’ I didn’t scream, I wouldn’t scream, if this note keeps coming back, and if I rip it just comes back, well then I’ll have to except it. So I shoved the black note that read that cold sentence in my pocket and walked back to the art room.
* * *
Anna and I walked out the front gate together. Before we went our separate ways she gave me a massive hug, as she pulled back she said.
“Nyki are you sure everything went fine in art”
“Yer it was great,” I said trying not to sound so sarcastic.
“Ok then Nyki ill see you tomorrow then”
“Yes Anna see you tomorrow” then I walked over to my mum’s car.
Well I guess this answers the question from this morning, the day was definitely worse then this morning, much, much worse.
For the next few nights I kept having that horrible dream over and over again. I was beginning to think that was all I was going to dream about, I thought I was going to go on having this horrible nightmare for the rest of my life until…I work it out… something that I had watch in a class film that I wasn’t paying attention to ‘cause it was soooooo…boring’ the show was about a girl who’s parents had this crazed dream for her and she wanted to change it and one of the other characters said to her that a dream is yours know one else’s you can change it if you wish, you can twist it, you can play with it because it is your dream.
Now I new what to do, I was going to stop this dream tonight and I was going to twist it so it can stop forever ‘hopefully’.
* * *
It was lunch and Anna and I were walking around the school like we do most lunch times. Anna was happy and not in a worrying mood witch was good.
“What do we have next?”
“You always ask that…”
“Oh I know I’m just like a gold fish”
“Yer you and your ten second memory”
“I know, I know, I know, now what do we have?”
“You have multimedia and I have radio”
We walked passed the office again because we always end up walking in circles and triangles and squares. As we rounded the corner I ended smacking into Zenji. ‘Owww’ he was with his evil clones like usual they following his every move. It’s quite funny actually. There like mindless clones that only know and say what Zenji says, and guess what my mindless brother is one of them. Tyken started to laugh as he saw what happened to me. I gave him a look and he slowly stopped. Although there are some times when Tyken steps out of the clone pack and bees himself and this was one of theses times.
“What the hell are you laughing at Tyken?” Zenji growled
“Arrr…just you hitting into my sis it was really funny couldn’t help myself.”
“Well do you think me getting hurt is funny”
“Umm…. err…. no”
“Zenji leave the poor kid alone” I growled at him ‘and this is why I don’t like him some times.’
“Don’t you get into this go hang with your friends” Zenji growled right back.
“Oh ok… you just go run along and play with your pack of evil clones and just try and make my little bro one of them” and at that point Anna and I started to laugh, and you could here just a small giggle from Tyken.
“Come on lets go…now!!!!” Zenji yelled and he stormed of the other way. As usual the clones march off in lines after their master it was so funny.
“See told you evil clones” I put my hands up and followed were they went like I was being mind controlled. Anna stated to laugh so hard that she fell down and started to roll around on the floor and soon after I joined her.
* * *
School was pretty normal after that, same old boring class’s and teachers but by the end of the day the teachers had to announce something to the whole of year ten. Anna and I were walking side by side to the hall, she had her worrying look on her face and she wasn’t talking to me, that’s defiantly not normal for her, not normal at all.
“Anna…Anna answer me…Anna” I waved my arms to block her way “ you who Anna…”
“What…” ‘Opps’ she sounded pissed off.
“Are you ok?”
“You don’t look fine”
“I’m fine… I’m just worried about why were going to the hall”
“I’m worried to… but there’s no need to stress”
And that was the last thing she said as we entered the hall. Our hall is kind of big in size, which usually had wooden flooring, but since we have assembly they put the carpet down for us to sit on. Its kind of unfair how the teachers get to sit on chairs and were stuck sitting on cold hard flooring. Which made your legs go numb after about ten minuets. Anna still looking worried as she walked over and sat, off to the side of the hall, I walked over and took a seat next to her. Everyone started to chat except Anna and I, Anna kept still and quiet, it was kind of disturbing. The principle stood up and signaled for quiet the whole hall fell silent, which was more disturbing then Anna being silent.
“Good afternoon year ten” the principle boomed ‘man he has a loud voice’ “we have some good news and some bad news…ill start with the bad news first … we are sorry to say that Mr. Shinoest was in a car accident and is in hospital, where also unsure when he’ll be back”
The hall stood still and silent for a few minuets till the news sunk in, a girl up the back gave a small sob that we all herd. The teacher nearest to her helps her up and takes her out of the hall. Then the principle spoke again.” On the brighter side we have a new teacher to take his place till he gets back…her name is Mrs. Night… her and her son will start at this school tomorrow and that will be all.” The principle took a seat and the students stared to whisper to each other about the up coming advent, which was the new boy.
Once we were aloud outside Anna and I walked slowly to our lockers, she still wasn’t talking.
“Anna your kind of umm… how do I put this…your scaring me please talk…”
“Sorry Nyki… I just… I’m in shock… I guess…”
“Don’t panic please… Nyki its just poor Mr. Shinoest and its weird they never let a new kid in and you know it… our schools already to crowded…”
“I know… yer it is weird”
We didn’t talk for the rest of the way to our lockers or even as we walked to the gate, when we were at the front gate she just hug me and left. It upset me to see Anna this way, she’s been there for me when I need her and she always supported me, now I’m unsure how to support her or even help her. This is bogus between notes and dreams, and friends, new people what next.
I’m lying down in between a warm blanket and a cold mattress ‘I know it makes no sense but its true the mattress was cold and the blanket was warm’
“How am I gonna do this” I whispered to my self as I look up at my ceiling to see the twinkling glow in the dark star stickers that my brother, my cousin and I stuck up there. My room was dark except for the ceiling. Which gave my room a faint glow. I turned on to my sided and then tossed over to the other side.
“How the hell am I gonna fix this dream if I cant sleep” I scolded myself.
I moved over to my lamp and flicked it on then slipped back down under the covers hoping that will give me some sort of comfort so I could sleep. My eyes felt heavy and my body felt like I was moving a ton of lead, but still I could sleep ‘what the hell’ I turned over and flicked the lamp off again, then I threw a few pillow around the room, I couldn’t see where they landed but I could hear them. I snuggled down and closed my eyes tight. ‘Sleep please sleep…sleep…”
I opened my eyes thinking that I was back in my bed, but I wasn’t ‘yer got to sleep’ I was in my horrible dream ‘yay…not’. I bit my lip as I looked down so I wouldn’t scream because I knew I was in a puddle of blood. I slowly help my self up and walk carefully over to the girl who was staring of into the distance. She look like she did before but this time her hair was up in a high ponytail. I raised my hand to tap her on the shoulder but she spun around before I did. She looked at me and stood staring for a while. ‘ I’m quiet curious what she is think, cause I just can’t tell.’
“Do you agree?” she asked in her angelic voice
“Agree to what?”
“Do you agree that I’m you and your me?” ‘Stupid cold sentence’
“If that will stop this madness… with all these weird notes and dreams then I’ll agree to anything”
“Are you sure about that?” she said very slyly
I stood very still mauling this over will I agree or wont I, or is this just crazy, hang on a second remember really boring movie.
“Ok I agree and I’m absolutely sure about it” I gave a look to show I was curtain. She giggled and swung her arms around me giving me a big hug.
“I’m so glad were one again” she kept giggling as she pulled back.
“I am to… I guess…” that’s all I could make my mouth say it wouldn’t say nothing else.
“Now let me get rid of… umm… what was it again…”
“You mean this” I pulled out the black note that was in my pocket and held it out so she could take it.
“ Oh goodie… were already thinking as one again” she smiled grab the note as she did it disincarnated.
“Err… umm ok then I’ll go…” I trailed off as I tried to go away but she grabbed my arm and pulled me back to face her.
“Because I have to explain a few things or else you’ll…” she trailed off into her own thoughts.
“Ok what is it that’s so important that you have to tell me?” I growled at her ‘how come this dream won’t end’
“ Well when you wake your gonna feel different…”
“Hold your horse…”
“As I was saying your going to feel different… every movement… you will be able to see and hear, all your senses will enhance by ten fold it will be strange at first but you will get use to it…”
“Opps I almost forgot … also you will have a lust… a lust for blood…”
“As I said a lust for blood…”
“ No way no, no… I’m not a vampire… no I’m not… ill properly attack my family and…and I might … no I’m not no, no, no …”
“How can I” I was being very hysterical
“I’m sorry but its part of the deal that you have had from birth plus I know you’ll have the strength not to kill them… oh yer.. and also he will help”
“He will help whose he and how the hell can he help…and what’s this about a deal…”
“ Time will tell you my dear… and remember that he will help” she took a step closer to me, I tried to take a step back but she grabbed my hand so that I couldn’t, then kissed my fore head.
“Here this will help you remember…don’t be scared my dear we will talk soon” then she handed me another black note and I knew what it said as soon as she handed it to me… he will help. She slowly turned around swing her ponytail to the back of her head. As she walks off to the distance she puts her hand up as a signal of goodbye then she disappeared. The dream finial ended and I woke….
