Natalie was sitting in class, resting her head on her desk. She just couldn't stay awake any longer. Not because she hadn't slept enough, but because it was just boring. She was in her 12th year of school. The last one. But since she moved back from Singapore, she had been bored with class. At first it wasn't so bad but now, she could barely stand it. She closed her eyes and started napping. Suddenly she heard some laughter and her friend, Marie, who was sitting next to her, shook her. "Wach auf!" (Wake up!) She slowly sat up and stared at the black board, then her teacher. "Sorry...Könnten Sie die Frage wiederholen? Ich hab nicht zu gehört." (Sorry...Could you please repeat the question? I didn't listen.) The teacher glared at her while the rest of the class was laughing their asses off. "Wenn Sie nicht am Unterricht teilhaben wollen sondern schlafen, dann gehen Sie bitte!" (If you don't want to participate in class and rather sleep, then please leave!) Natalie smirked. "Würd ich ja gerne! Aber meine Eltern zwingen mich hier zusein." (I'd love to! But my parents force me to come here.) The teacher frowned before letting out a sigh. She returned to her lecture about World War II. There was still some laughter here and there but it calmed down quickly. Natalie spent the rest of the class staring out of the window, watching the birds fly and envying their freedom. Here and there she scribbled down some notes but she was manely focusing on the outside. When the bell rang she slowly packed her bag, got out her phone and headphones, put them in her ears and plugged them in. She then turned on her music and left the school building. When she walked down the stairs, people kept bumping into her. The girl with the black long her didn't care. It was a day as boring as ever. She couldn't wait to get home and just lock herself in her room, put on some anime and chill.

She left the building and took a deep breath of fresh air. The school was definatly all stuffy so getting some fresh air was nice. It was then when she noticed something shimmer from across the street. Natalie quickly crossed it and looked around. There was an old lady sitting on a carpet, trying to sell jewlery to the by passing students, who ignored her completely. It was as if she wasn't even there. The ripped clothes that looked like rags sure didn't help. Watching her for a bit made Natalie feel bad for the old woman so she approached her. "Liebes Kind, möchtest du etwas kaufen?" (Dear child, do you wish to buy something?) Natalie just nodded, admireing the beautifully crafted pieces. A necklace, with a blue stone caught her attention. "Darf ich?" (May I?) Natalie asked and pointed to the necklace. The old lady only nodded and the young girl picked it up. It was so beautiful and it had something magical about it. "Probiere sie doch einmal an Kindchen. Sie steht dir bestimmt gut." (You can try it on, child. She'll propably suit you ery well.) The old woman said. Natalie smiled and quickly put it around her neck. She looked at the necklace for just a moment. As she wanted to pay, the woman had vanished and so did all her things. Natalie looked around confused. All the other students just looked at her and laughed in their little groups. After a while she just shrugged and started walking home.

Beep beep beep...Her hand smacked the alarm next to her and put it on snooze. Natalie rolled on her other side and continued to sleep. The alarm went of againa few minutes later and the girl with the dark hair slowly crawled out of her bed, after turning it off. Natalie was just putting on a pullover when she noticed something strange. For starters her room was way to clean and she couldn't help but feel like someone was there in the room with her. She scanned the room but there was nothing. shaking her head, she resumed getting dressed. When she finished she walked downstairs to get some breakfast before school. Her parents were gone and her brother was propably still asleep. Letting out a sigh, she filled a bowl with cereal and milk. After breakfast, Natalie finished getting ready for school and closed the door. In that moment, when the door closed behind her the feeling of someone around her was back. Slowly turing around, she grabbed her bag tighter, ready to hit who ever is there. When she turned around there was...Nothing. Again. Her entire body was shaking. Never had anything like that occured to her before and she didn't like it. The sound of a bus arriving reminded her that she was late and she started running. When she arrived at school, she forced her way up to her classroom. As she reached it, she quickly sat down on her seat and started staring out of the window. She was so focused, she didn't notice class had started. All she could think about was that old lady an the weird feeling she had all morning. Suddenly, something flew past her eyes. Natalie followed it with her eyes and couldn't believe what she saw. It was nothing more than an orb of light. It flew around her, as if it was dancing. The students around her started laughing. she hadn't realized, she was standing and turning around in a circle. The teacher tried to say something to her but Natalie couldn't hear anything. All of her attention was on the odd little light. After a few minutes had past, she slowly reached out to it and touched it.

"W-Was zum-?" (W-Waht the-?) Natalie was surrounded by a bright light. He necklace had started to glow when she tuched the light and now she was just floating around in a bright nothingness. Her eyes started to get heavy and a strong pain was going through her body. Suddenly everything was dark. Nothing was there. No sound. No smell. No feeling. Her entire body was pulsating. It stopped. A light breeze pulled her back into reality and Natalie opened her eyes. As she looked around, her eyes widened. "Where on earth am I?" Around her were beautiful flowers glowing in the middle of the night. The young girl slowly sat up, when she noticed something was wrong. Her hair wasn't balck, it was purple and so much longer. She wasn't weraing her normal clothes but some weird dress. She looked at her hands and noticed that they were different too. "Am I dreaming? No...It's way to real..." She got on her feet, and scanned the area around her. It was then, when she noticed three other people lying on the ground.
