Waking Dreams

Friends in need

The pale moonlight was eclipsed by a thick black venomous cloud which engulfed the land in shadow. Standing in the darkness of her room, Will sighed and rested her forehead against the cool glass pane. Her head ached and her shoulders felt tense and knotted but she made no move to ease her discomfort. She just pushed it to the back of her mind and her gaze moved to the line of light glowing from under the base of the bathroom door. Every so often, a shadow would block the light as Cornelia moved restlessly about.

Sipping her sweet tea -which Hay Lin had said was good for shocks-, she watched the rivulets of water trail down the window pane like tears. The heavens had opened a few minutes after the cloud had rolled over the moon and now the pitter patter of rain drops pierced the eerie silence.

In the fortress-like house, Will had never felt anything but safe. Even when she was left alone, she would curl up on the sofa, with Toad on her lap and with the fire roaring cheerfully in the hearth while she watched various movies. But now now she was studying the shadows as though she suspected something to jump out at her from them. This was worse than how shed felt after watching Halloween for the first time. Her heart gave a hard thud against her rib cage as though to remind her to breathe and shakily she blew out the air that had clogged in her throat before sipping the tea, letting its warmth seep through her.

A figure in the darkness drew her attention, her eyes narrowing as she made out the silhouette of Caleb striding over the shorn grass towards the house from the woods. He must have been checking the grounds, she mused. She had Hay Lin do the same thing but the air guardian had seen nothing nor had she heard anything. So, it ruled out the idea that the Sidhe had to be close to inflict his psychic attack on Cornelia.

When she closed her eyes, she could still see how perilously Cornelia had wobbled along the tree branch, completely unaware as to what she was doing. But what bothered Will was where she had been going. Where was the Sidhe leading her? If he wasnt around, was there a portal then? Possibly, she surmised. It would make sense. If you wanted to travel somewhere without having to waste time then a portal would be the wisest thing to use. However, she hadnt noticed a portal nor had the heart reacted.

Not to mention the fact that she wasnt even sure where Tir-na-ng was. Was it even in this country? No, she rejected that idea as preposterous. A slight nagging feeling told her that Tir-na-ng was Irish but that didnt really mean much since Will was terrible at history. Though hadnt Elyon said something about the sidhe being commonly found in Ireland? Was that where Tir-na-ng was? She groaned. She didnt know. But Elyon would figure that out.

Raising her mug again, she watched as Caleb came close enough for the light outside to illuminate his grim expression. He looks so tired, she thought sympathetically, as though the weight of the world is on his shoulders once more. Poor guy hadnt had an easy life and when he did have his chance, she had stolen it from him. Guilt churned in her stomach but she quelled it.

Im sorry Caleb, but Cornelia needs you.

As if hed heard her silent apology, -of course that was impossible- he looked directly up, finding her in the second story window and his green eyes zeroed in on her with laser precision. Her heart thumped hard and her stomach swooped leaving her feeling vaguely dizzy but she ignored the jolt, accepted it. His expression shifted subtly in greeting and in return, she offered him a wane smile and wiggled her fingers in a vague wave. He looked away before continuing towards the house and disappearing from her view.

The door opened behind her softly and startled, she glanced over her shoulder to see Cornelia standing framed by the bright fluorescent bathroom light, dressed in a fluffy white terry cloth robe Will had unearthed from the closet. She looked paler than Will had ever seen her, almost fragile like a porcelain doll. It was unnerving to say the least.

Hey. she greeted softly as Cornelia tugged the cord to switch off the light before she shuffled into the room.

Hey.

Howre you feeling?

Tired.

Yeah. Will replied inadequately. She just didnt know what to say. She was at a complete loss on how she should be acting or what she should say. Taking a deep breath, she closed the curtains as though she could keep out the dark and the things it contained. You can sleep in here tonight.

I- Cornelia broke off and bit her lip as she tried to compose herself. I dont think I can sleep Will, but thanks for the-

You need to sleep Cornelia. Her voice was sharp but it needed to be to pierce the walls that Cornelia had erected. She needed to break through to where Cornelia had hidden herself so she could force her friend to fight. She needed Cornelia to fight because if she didnt well it wasnt worth thinking about. The weaker you are physically, the easier it is for him to manipulate you. Thats what hes been trying to achieve with the dreams.

Yeah well, he did, didnt he? Cornelia snapped back bitterly. Do you have any idea what it was like to wake up to find myself dangling from a tree?

No I dont, Corny, but I know what it was like to run into the bedroom and see you walking over a branch that was barely strong enough to hold the weight of a squirrel, never mind you.

Cornelia slumped as though the fight had just drained out of her. She sat down on the bed and plucked at the duvet cover. I could have died tonight.

Will sighed and sat down beside her, slipping an arm around her shoulders and curling a foot underneath her body and she turned to give the blonde her complete attention. I dont think hed have let you.

Cornelia snorted. Yeah right, she thought, he let me walk along a branch for gods sake. Do I look like a tight rope walker? Puh-lease. Her nose wrinkled in distaste. No matter how good she looked in fuchsia spandex, she was anything but a circus freak.

Look, get into the bed and Ill watch over you. If you show any sign of beginning to dream, Ill wake you up straight away. Will ordered as she got to her feet and began to tug down the cover, revealing the crisp sheets of the newly made bed.

I dont need a babysitter. Cornelia grumbled but as she looked at the bed, she felt a yearning sensation almost similar to how she felt when she spotted a particularly cute handbag in her favorite fashion boutique in the Heatherfield mall. She could feel the weight of sleep pressing against her, tugging gently at her heavy eye lids and whispering seductively to entice into the slumberous realms that beckoned her.

Admitting to herself that she really needed to get a couple of hours sleep just once, she removed the robe, draping it over the nearby chair and climbing into the bed, enjoying the scent of lavender from the washing detergent. As she stifled a yawn, she spotted Will shaking something onto the floor. Uh, Will, what are you doing?

Wills head jerked up and her cheeks blushed in embarrassment of being caught. Well I once saw this film and they put a circle of salt around the girl to protect her from the magical beings. I thought it might help. I know its used to purify people, so maybe it can protect you from him. Of course, Will thought, that there was no point in letting Cornelia know that the magical beings in the film were witches.

Cornelias brow crinkled in bewilderment at the red heads antics but she said nothing, instead, she simply wiggled her body down the bed until her head rested on the fresh white linen pillow. As she did this, Will was already pulling up a chair from the vanity chest and placing it by the bed so she could sit down. Out of her hoody, she pulled out a tattered edition of some manga she had become addicted to after staying over in Hay Lins house one night. Opening it at a dog-eared page, she propped her feet up against the mattress and slipped an earphone from her pocket to her ear. A buzz of noise came from the small black blob but it was indiscernible to Cornelia. Though she guessed it was some sort of rock music that Matt had introduced her to.

Turning her back to her friend, simply because she disliked the feeling of being watched as she slept, she closed her eyes and tried to calm her mind, to block out the thousand of questions pricking at her brain.

After a few minutes, she rolled onto her back and stared up at the ceiling. Why is Caleb here? she finally asked. Her mind kept twisting back to that question. It was hard to ignore. After all, shed woken from a disturbingly adult dream about dancing with him and wanting him to find herself tucked in the comforting embrace of her first love. It was almost as though shed been transported to the past. And for a moment, a slight moment that she barely acknowledged, shed been happy. Relieved even, because the dreams werent real and the only thing she had to worry about was whether Caleb liked her back. And then reality had rushed in like a flood of icy cold water to wash away her relieved feelings and to strike her with a sense of foreboding because Caleb wasnt supposed to be there, she hadnt seen him in three years and she was hanging high above the ground.

But Caleb had been there. Solid and steady as ever, holding her tightly in his grip so as not to let her fall even as she struggled from fear and panic, a part of her relished this protection. Relished the fact that someone cared about her enough to hold her tightly and whisper words of reassurance compared to the dreams where she could only remember being taunted for her needs and wants.

The dreams, she decided were becoming worse. The Sidhe was becoming cruel and mocking and no matter how much she wanted to leave, her body just wouldnt listen and instead she ended up begging for a just a hint of affection because in the end her body betrayed her. It craved him and nothing of her strong will would stop that. So being held by Caleb, remembering how he had cared, it was like being consoled by the heavens for having to endure her nightmare fate.

However despite her inner joy, she still wasnt sure why he was there. There was no reason for him to be there.

Will looked up from her book, before carefully closing it and composing a viable answer. I asked him to come when I was visiting Elyon. I thought maybe he could help.

Cornelia frowned into the darkness. Help? How?

I thought Will trailed off looking awkward. I dont know Its just a thought.

When Will once again faltered, Cornelia rolled her eyes impatiently. Look, Will, Ive had a really bad day and a horrible night, try getting to the point before I die of old age.

If you died of old age, I wouldnt have to get to the point. Will muttered softly before leaning back on the chair and tilting her head so she could look up at the ceiling. Arent you even glad to see him?

Nice change of topic, she thought sourly as she shifted onto her side to regard Will. Was she glad to see Caleb? Yes, she supposed in a way she was. After all, hed been her first love and she had thought about him in the passing years since they had separated, no other guy had ever measured up but was it really that simple? Seeing him had caused her heart to lodge in her throat and her stomach to fall to her feet.

Yes shed missed him; there was no denying that point. He had been sweet and caring, but She hadnt seen him in so many years. It wasnt even his fault; she had been the one to impose the restriction. She couldnt even really explain why she had done it. Shed just felt that it was for the best.

Her eyes lifted to Wills solemn gaze and she closed her eyes and groaned. Yes, I Will its complicated.

Will frowned. What was so complicated? Why was Cornelia making things complicated? Trying to get a straight answer out of both of them was like walking a mine field; youd only get so far before you were blown to smithereens. And Will liked the feeling of being whole, little Will pieces hopping about like sushi wasnt her idea of a life ambition.

Well, well simplify it. You and Caleb havent seen each other in roughly three and a half years, maybe more. Why?

That was simplifying it? Someone should get a dictionary and show Will the meaning of simple, it certainly wasnt asking that question. Growling softly and muttering many expletives under her breath, Cornelia sat up in the bed and looked down at her hands, blowing out a slow steady breath. How to answer the question? Why couldnt it be simpler? Like a multiple choice questionnaire where you chose, A, B, C or D -none of the above- to answer the questions. But noooo, Will couldnt do something like that.

Because I havent been to Meridian since the fall of Phobos, so I couldnt see him.

Will blinked once, then twice then thrice. She hadnt been to Meridian? Ever? Why not?

Well, first off there was the little fact that the veil had to re-strengthen itself after the millennium. At Wills baffled look, Cornelia filled her in. Not because she felt she had to, but because it gave her a sense of satisfaction to know something Will didnt. Call her petty, if you will. Look, the veil is like a scab. If you keep picking at it, it wont seal over and therefore fissures will open up all over again and little Johnny down the road will walk into one and find himself in the middle of a Larvek net. Comprende?

Once again, without sarcasm. So youre saying that while the veil was re-knitting itself, you couldnt get through. Right, I knew that. Thats why you have that enchanted mirror to talk to Elyon, but the veil has been fine for ages now. Why not go through then.

Oh and how do you propose I would have done that? Tear it with my bare hands?

Will tucked her tongue in her cheek and suppressed the need to give Cornelias lovely blonde hair a good yank! You could have asked Elyon to open one.

Oh please, she has enough on her plate.

All she would have to do is touch her finger to the touchpad atlas and voila, instant portal, just add water.

Cornelias lips twitched. Hanging out with Irma had lent Will her own brand of quirky witticism. But despite the joke, she knew that Will was being deadly serious. She wanted an answer. Rubbing her face with her hand, she sighed heavily and muffled another yawn. She could plead exhaustion, it wouldnt be too much of a fabrication but she knew it would be better to get this out of her system now than let Will go marching up to Caleb.

I never asked I guess I was scared to. After the months passed while I awaited the veil to seal over, I wondered what he was doing. If he was moving on from me, if he even liked me anymore. And the longer it got, the more insecure I became. I began to throw myself into my after school groups-

Started filling up your free time with useless stuff you werent interested in. Will finished softly as she began to understand her friend. Cornelia, he wouldnt move on that quickly.

Now Cornelia smiled almost whimsically. Theres so much you dont understand Will. And its not for me to say. I just figured it would be better for me to move on with my life. I dont want to move to Meridian and we couldnt have a relationship by jumping back and forth through portals. Thats no way for someone to live. I have to be with someone devoted to me. Hes devoted to Meridian and I know he could care for me but thats not enough for me. I wont be second to anyone or anything.

Humbled Will sat silently as she sorted through what the earth guardian had said. All of that made so much sense; it was almost scary to hear Cornelia talk like this. It seemed too grownup for the girl who was usually seen as a fashion obsessed bimbo. But this was just another of those times that she proved that still waters run deep.

Im sorry, C. I really thought him being here would help.

Cornelia ran her fingers through her hair thoughtfully. He did, Will, if he hadnt been there I probably would have fallen from that tree. She closed her eyes, unable to stop a huge yawn from stretching her lips awkwardly.

Go to sleep Cornelia. Well work all of this out tomorrow.

Sleepily, she acknowledged the offer and slid lower in her bed, pulling her cover up to her face and grabbing a fistful to hold onto. Fretting her lip, she looked into the thick shadows. Will you stay?

I wont leave you Cornelia.

In the darkness, Will reached out for her friends hand and holding it firmly in her grasp she let Cornelia slip away under the light veil of sleep, hoping her friend felt safer with the knowledge that she was there to keep the nightmares away.

Despite living in the castle in Meridian part time, he had never really gotten use to having food on the table for every meal. Nor was he used to having clean garments and hot running water and electricity. They were all things he had learnt not to take for granted and yet still he kept expecting to wake up and find himself in his old cell back in the Infinite city.

His life had certainly changed since he came into contact with the guardians and for the better but he would never forget the dark days he had seen as a youth.

A whisper of noise up ahead caught his attention and warily he crept towards it. As far as he knew the girls were all tucked up for the night, which was for the best, he decided. They needed to get some sleep. Cornelias sleep walking had frightened them all and they needed to get some recuperation from that. Irma was the only one he expected to be awake since he had sent her to take over watching the Earth Guardian. Will had already spent two hours watching over Cornelia and the girls had decided to take shifts so they could all snatch some shut eye.

Blunk was happily cooking in the kitchen under the watchful eye of the bewildered man servant of Wills. She said that he wouldnt say anything about them or the passling and Caleb believed her, besides if he tried to say anything, everyone would believe the words to be the ramblings of a demented old codger.

There was a soft light outlining the doorframe. He nudged it open with his foot and skimmed his gaze over the inside of the room. A sofa was pushed up against the wall while the TB played silently in the corner. The white light was coming from the strange white and black zigzags scrolling rhythmically up and down the screen. On the sofa there was a lump covered in a multicolored woolen blanket.

He frowned. Just how many people lived in this place? A lot he supposed. Hed heard the girls call the building a fortress, though why the people of earth needed a fortress he didnt know.

Pushing the door open just a little farther, he entered the room, his frown deepening before relaxing as he spotted the bright red cap of hair that showed just above the blanket.

Will he sighed softly. She should have been in bed. She couldnt function by just snatching bits of sleep here and there. She wasnt him. He could sleep for a few hours a night but only because his body was trained to do that, she got cranky if she stayed up late. Fair enough she was usually studying Mass or something like that, it sounded like some sort of torture technique so that could have been why she would be in a temperamental mood in the mornings.

The black and white dog was lying at her feet. As he approached, it raised its head to gaze questioningly at him. He reached out a hand to let the animal tentatively sniff at his skin and when the dog deemed him to be no threat, it placed its head back down on its outstretched paws and closed its eyes.

Caleb sighed, well some guardian the dog made. He put that thought out of his mind and knelt beside the young woman wrapped in her shawl. Reaching out to shake her, he was disturbed when a small brown bottle fell out of her hands.

Will? he questioned softly as he lifted the bottle and sniffed it experimentally. Drugs, he realized. There was a definite medicinal smell and he vaguely remembered seeing such things in the girls homes when he visited from time to time and when they were bandaging their cuts from various battles.

Will started, breathing fast and sharp as her eyes stared at the dark before her. Seeing nothing wrong, she blew out a breath and fell back onto the cushions. Only a dream, she thought relieved. It had only been a dream. And yet, the dream was only what could have been. She squeezed her eyes shut then opened them again as the image of a mangled Cornelia played against the black canvas.

A sound beside her caught her attention and she gasped as she saw Caleb crouching beside her, holding something in his hand that obviously was disturbing him.

Caleb?

What is this? And how many have you taken? he demanded, his eyes narrowing hotly on hers.

Her bewilderment turned to bemusement as she noted that he was holding her medicine bottle in his large callused hands. Oh she trailed off sheepishly, tucking her hair behind her ear. He thought she had taken an overdose? Was that why he looked so urgent and upset? Theyre pain killers.

Youre wounded? Why didnt you say so? he began to reach for her as he scanned her body for any sign of blood.

No! she yelped batting his hands away from her top which he was trying to raise in order to see the wound better. Im not wounded I have a repetitive strain injury. The ibuprofen is to settle down the inflammation.

Repetitive strain injury? he echoed slowly, turning to sit on the edge of the bed as she scooted up so her back was too the arm. What is that?

Its when you do something too many times and because you do, your muscles or tendons get sore. Its not a big deal; I have it in my back, due to having wings. The muscles in my back arent used to being used like that. So they become painful from time to time.

So your back is sore?

Just a little. Its nothing to worry about Caleb. Really? she stressed as she sensed the disbelief in his posture and his gaze as he watched her shrewdly. Its just my bodys way of reminding me that Im mortal. Im not invincible. she finished quietly, turning her gaze away from him. Just like Cornelia and you and the girls.

He frowned. He wasnt equipped to deal with the girls when they began to talk like this. He didnt do girl talk. Number one reason why: He wasnt a girl. So why are you down here?

I couldnt sleep. My beds too soft for my back and every time I close my eyes, I keep seeing what could have happened if I hadnt gotten there in time.

Dont. You got there, Will. You have to remember that. His voice was low and slightly tinged with desperation as the thoughts rapped at the tightly formed barrier erected around his mind. It was the only way he had protected himself from the many images of injured friends and comrades from the rebellion against Phobos. If he hadnt had it, his sleep would have been plagued with dreams of people who had died and become injured in the battle for Meridian. It was a reason he had developed his bodys high resistance to sleep. You could say it was self defense.

But what if I hadnt? she demanded gesturing wildly as her voice rose a few octaves. What if I hadnt gotten there when I did? Hay Lin couldnt have held on much longer and Irma was ready to follow Cornelia. I could have lost two of my best friends Caleb and I just cant ignore that anymore. We always ran head first into danger and we never considered the consequences. What if we had died at any of those times? Who would have told my mother?

Will he trailed off and gazed at the dots of black and white dancing energetically on the silent screen. What you did for Meridian shouldnt be belittled like that. I admired your courage, it didnt matter how big or strong the evil, you faced it head on. You didnt run; you didnt hide behind the other girls despite the fact that you didnt have powers.

Exactly, I had no powers and yet I went flying around like I was Super girl! I put myself at risk all the time without a second thought.

You had to. You were chosen to be the leader, Will. And no leader sits by on the sidelines. You helped the girls, you may not have had any powers but neither do I. Are you saying I shouldnt have done that without wings and special powers? Did I risk my life for nothing?

No! You were fighting to free your country. He raised a brow. She slumped as the fight drained out of her. I wasnt fighting to free my country Caleb. If I hadnt been kidnapped then I wouldnt ever have gone to Meridian.

Do you regret meeting me? You wouldnt have been brought into the fight for Meridian if you hadnt.

Yes, I would. You forget Elyon was Cornelias friend. Like she was going to stand by and let Elyon be stolen away from her. You have no idea no wait; you probably do have a good idea on just how possessive she can be on things she thinks of as hers.

Raking a hand through her hair, she sat up. How could she tell him how she felt about knowing him without it all coming out the wrong way? She didnt want him to see her as weak. She didnt need for him to know just how insecure she could be. It was bad enough that the girls knew but Caleb had always seen her at her strongest moments. Powers or no powers, she was good under pressure. Yet growing up had alerted her to the fact that life wasnt a fairy tale and it was all too easy to lose your life.

It was something she hadnt had time to dwell on in the midst of the battle for Meridian. For the most part, they had been heralded as the strongest people there. After all, they could fly, had powers and most of all, they had a working brain each; always a plus. After the first initial battles, in which they continuously came out on top, they began to feel invincible. Then when the battles became tougher, well more was at stake, they fought harder and they had allies. Besides, during that stage, she was much more worried about whether or not shed see Matt that day. It was curse of youth. They didnt really dwell on what could be.

Suddenly she shook her head with a wane smile. Im sorry, Im being irrational.

Youre just tired. Go to sleep Will, things will look better in the morning.

Yeah, my mother used to say things like that when I was younger. Will reminisced with a smile before frowning and wrinkling her nose. I never believed her then either.

He managed a smile at that before urging her to her feet. Get some sleep, Will. Well sort things out in the morning.

Will nodded and sighed, her fingers naturally reaching for the heart, its steady pulse soothing her. Rubbing her eyes, she clicked her tongue to catch Toads attention before she shuffled out of the room. Pausing at the door, she looked back at him. Thanks for listening Caleb.

Like you said, were friends Will.

At that she smiled and disappeared out of the room. He watched her go and sighed heavily, before flopping back onto the sofa with the intention of just resting his eyes for a little while but the scent of something flowery on the cushion under his head lulled him into a dreamless sleep.
