At this point I was completely speechless, and blushing like a madman I’m sure. But was still curious as to what was on the other side of the pathway.

“Okay.” I said as I stood up.

I took his arm and we started to walk. And walk. And walk. It seemed like we had been walking for ages, before I finally looked back. The entrance was at most 3 feet behind me. I decided that I was crazy and just kept walking, but looking behind me. I was getting  nowhere. Finally I was getting too impatient to walk nowhere  so I pulled Oliver back.

“Poppet? What are you doing?”

“We aren’t getting anywhere, let’s just go back to London and hit a party or something.”

We started to walk towards the entrance, and of course we were 3 feet from the opening so it took no time to get there. But when I pushed aside the branches, I stood, frozen and astonished. I looked at Oliver, and he appeared to feel the same.

“This is…” Oliver was completely stunned.

In front of us was a huge meadow with perfect, long bright green grass. Bushy trees surrounded the area and a train track stretched across the horizon. it was quiet and peaceful. Everything was perfect here. It smelled of sweet spring blooms and seemed to have no temperature. Robins and sparrows sang  out from the trees and organized flocks danced across the sky. I was still inside the tunnel, and all I could think of at this point was running through the overly tall grass and fall into the soft blanket of the whole thing and just stare into the sky. So I did. I Raced out of the ivy and spread my arms out and just ran. I let the grass slide on my hands and my hair flow behind me. Pure bliss. This is what I’ve been looking for that I had never found. After a little while I got tired so I stopped and sat down to catch my breath. I saw Oliver walking towards me. He sat by me and smiled.

“That was some show Poppet.” He said laughing

“This was just so amazing… how could I not? I’ve never seen a place like this in my life and…”

“We all find our place, don’t we? It takes a lifetime for some people. My place is London, at a party with the hardcore bangs hah. I’m an on the go person, looking for action all the time. I never can stop. Some people they… they think I’m crazy for it, maybe I am I don’t know. But you… you’ve always gone along with it. I know you would rather be in a place like this… just running through a field or dreaming in a flower patch. Why? Why did you go along with it all this time?”

“I just… I wanted to see you happy. I had never done that, and while I would like to spend my life out in the open, your hardcore bang parties... they aren’t so bad, and you love it.” I found myself blushing at this thought. Did I really just say that? I never realized that him being happy… That was what I wanted. I had always just thought of him as a best friend who I go along with.

“Hah. You didn’t have to do that Poppet. I have my whole…life…if I may say to go to parties.”

He looked up and smiled at the sky. The wind blew through his hair and he looked almost peaceful. His face was calm and relaxed and he let out a sigh. I leaned against him slightly and we just sat there, peacefully in the meadow. I don’t know how long it was, but I saw the sun going down.

“ Hey what about those train tracks over there?” I asked

“What about them?”

“can we go check em out?”

“you silly girl. Hahah, let’s go.” He stood up and held out his hand for me.

When we got to the tracks, which were closer than they appeared to be, I was amazed for the fourth time today at what I saw. I’ve never actually seen train tracks that weren’t broken up and rusted before. I jumped up on the rail and started walking down it like a little kid would on a balance beam. Oliver was walking on the ground next to me, catching my arm every time I slipped up. We walked for so long, just talking and being peaceful, I didn’t notice that the sun had gone completely down. Now is the time to Panic. When the sun goes down during the Second Day Club, it means the sun is coming up where you are. The sun had been down for some time, meaning I was still sleeping.

“Oliver what time is it?” I asked

“10:4…5… Poppet wouldn’t that make it almost 3 where you live?”
