True Dreamer

True Dreamer

Elise is an ordinary preteen girl. At least, she thinks she is. But when she starts to see the future, she starts to wonder how true that is. If I get enough comments, I'll continue writing.

Dream

Dream

The old, rundown tow truck is parked by the large building. Someone is standing by the truck, but his face is blurry.
I have this feeling in the back of my head like I should run, but I don't.
Instead, I stop for a moment and wipe my eyes, take a deep breath, and walk by and into the flower shop. A strange feeling that I can't quite put my finger on races through my head.
As I select a rose for my aunt, I space out. The feeling is almost like panic, but mixed with confusion and disbelief.
Everything fades.

I wake up the next morning with a smile on my face. My dream consisted of my Aunt and I hanging out, with her still alive and well.
It takes me a moment to realize that it was just a dream. My smile fades.
I shake it off and tumble out of bed. I put on a sparkly pink top, lavender capris, and my favorite flip-flops on to honor the first day of spring.
It's Saturday, so I walk around the house, wondering if anyone's still home.
They're not.
I sigh and plod into the kitchen to grab a quick breakfast.
I snatch some Honey Combs from the pantry and stir it into a bowl of milk, then dig in.
Ten minutes later, I'm out the door, texting Viv as I plopped down onto a porch chair.

Me: Can I come over?
Viv: Sry. Busy right now. Later?
Me: sure.

I sigh. I might as well not text any of my other friends. Kiki's at soccer, Lola's at gymnastics, and Ann is probably studying like crazy for the test. In a month.
I start walking around the neighborhood, thinking about Aunt Gigi.
I wished I could go see her...
As fresh tears started to form, I tried to shake the thought out of my head. But it wouldn't budge.
I might as well go see her. The flowers at her grave are probably dead anyway.
I head towards Flora, the nearest flower shop. I try to calm myself, but the tears flow anyway, blurring my vision.
I glance at a dismal tow truck. Its dirty windows and rundown appearance mirrors my feelings right now.
Standing by the truck is a man, blurred by the onslaught of fresh tears.
I take a step back as the image hits.
There's that same, strange itching in the back of my head. The same angle. The exact same picture.
I feel like I recognize this scene, and it sends a shudder of panic through me, clearing away my tears.
I'm crazy.
I wipe my eyes before walking into the flower shop. The panic races through again, followed by a reprimand to myself. I'm just upset.
As I select a white rose, Gigi's favorite, I totally space.
Have I really seen that before? When? How? Why?
Why am I even giving this a second thought? It's me overreacting to something with a perfectly reasonable explanation.
Or me going insane.

Actually, I am going to work on this as soon as I revise "Faction -- A Divergent Story." Just a chapter and some editing. Then I'm going to work on some other stories.
