The Dream?: Part Two
Kia shot straight up in her bed, suddenly regretting it by the sun raises light blinding her. After she blinded away the light and spots, she saw her normal comforting room. Her room was pretty strange, it had dark blue walls and a few posters of movies and bands that share the wall with hanging necklaces and printed pictures taped up in random places. Kia frowned lightly as she remembered her dream. Thousands of questions burst into her head, but all she said was Why? What?. Just then she noticed the necklace on the table nearest to her bed. It was of the Egyptian sign of life, the ankh. It was a beautiful, yet simple necklace, the only odd thing was that the chain looked too thin to hold the unusually thick charm. She also noticed the raised hieroglyphics on the charm. Not knowing the ancient language she didnt think to much about it.
Muttering to herself, she crawled out of bed and stumbled down the hall, into the tiny bathroom. There she splashed water on her face and brushed her teeth, while busying her mind with what to wear, what she had to bring to school, if her cd player had batteries, and if she had any more homework or projects not done. After she had gotten dressed in a simple silk shirt with flowing sleeves and clean jeans she brushed her hair, put on the unusual necklace with her normal ankh earrings. With one last glance at the clock, she grabbed her key, lunch money, and cd player, which already had a cd in it.
Kia ran out the door and stood at the bus stop, finally letting herself think about her dream. She wondered why he had appeared in her dreams. He often haunted her daydreams but none of them have ever been that real. She sighed as she remembered his touch. Shaking her head, she snapped out of her longings and got onto the bus, which had just arrived. After sitting in her normal seat, Kia turned on her cd player and blocked out everyone on her bus, but it didnt block her thoughts.
Kia racked her brain trying to think of why the dream felt so real, but the little voice in the back of her head said, Dont tell me you already forgot about Luke. You were going out for 4 days! You guys didnt even TALK! I mean come on, you are CLEARLY starving for a guys touch so why are you killing your brain over this? So what it the dream felt real? It was just that, a dream. Try getting your head outta your books and daydreams and actually interact with guys! THATS what your dream was trying to tell you. Its that simple. Kia replied Well.. I guess your right.. Just then the bus stopped at the school and interrupted her conversation with herself. Avoiding the certain guy she hated, she walked off the bus and to her homeroom. Kia smiled as she walked in, seeing one of her friends. She just sat down and watched the announcements, wondering what kind of new intro they were doing today, and trying not to stare at the back of the guy in front of her s head. You cannot like him, she told herself. He only likes preppy girls and just brushed the urge from her mind. Just then her homeroom teacher called her up. Since you have good grades and one of your teachers recommended you. The office has asked you to show a new student around, of coarse youd have a pass for being late. What do you say? her teacher said. Wow.. I mean Sure Id love too. Kia replied, wondering if the new kid would be a guy or girl. After homeroom, she just cleared her mind until second period.
In second period, Kia spilled all the details of her dream to her best friend, Lorana. .. and when I woke up I found this, she pointed to her ankh necklace. I just find it strange that it matches my earrings and key chain and right after that Egyptian theme-ed dream.
Hmmm Lorana said. I think its strange. You should wait until tonight to see if you dream anything else. Maybe your brain is giving you a warning or hint about something important.
Yeah. I think I will wait.. thanks Kia flashed her a bright smile. Jesus loves you she said as she laughed. Lorana just groaned and said Shove it up your a**, Kia. Both of the girls laughed as the bell rang and they rushed to their seats.
The rest of the day flew by fast, Kia barely noticed it go by except when she saw the cutest guy, he was wearing a Gratefully Dead Tee shirt, black pants, and his black hair was slicked back in the best way. Kia held his gaze when they locked eyes in the hall, she even had a slightly mischievous smirk on her face. Kia smiles inside at herself for not duck her head and blushing. Your getting better the voice in her head said.
Soon it was the end of the day and she was on the bus home, worrying about her homework. A few times a couple 8th and 7th graders that she knew talked to her. She basically just thought about how she was gonna waste the next day. Sighing, she got off the bus and walked into her house, throwing her book bag onto the couch and laid down, accidentally falling asleep
