Someone was calling to her in her sleep. She was in a valley with a lake. Everything was covered by a silvery mist, the only thing that she could make out were a few silhouettes in the distance. She felt like they were vanishing. She felt an urge to follow them before they completely disappeared. A hand appeared right in front of her halting her. It was covered in metal but it wasn’t a gauntlet, it was some sort of scales that covered it. She felt a string being pulled inside her heart Â Who was it? The name was at the tip of her tongue yet she couldn’t recall whose the hand was. She lunged forward with the urge to embrace the handâs owner. She passed through it. Pain rose up in her chest like it was burning. They werenât really there. Waves of sadness washed over her like cold autumn rain.
“Its not yet time for you to follow my love.” The voice sounded strange, like it was echoing throughout a cave. It sounded familiar, it brought out feelings of love and longing. She found herself yearning for its sound. It was filled with warmth and love, but there was also a small hint of sadness. “You still have a job to do. Remember our promise.â
The only thing she knew was that she wanted to find the person speaking. She looked around. The other silhouettes had vanished. The lone figure stood there kneeling in front of her with a stretched out hand. She tried taking the hand but only passed through it again. Her eyes were wet. âI donât remember anything!â she sighed âI donât know who I am, I donât know who you or those other people were! I donât remember making a promise! I donât even know if I am alive!â she unintentionally kept raising her voice as her desperation reached its boiling point âI know one simple truthâ the words escaped her mouth before she had the time to think on what she wanted to say. âI want you!â She slowly rose up and headed towards the shadow. As she got closer she opened her arms âMy gut tells me you feel the same way and I believe that this is a dream, so before all of this vanishes, before I remember the promise, before you fade away, please let me embrace you!â the other person was trembling as they rose up. As they embraced each other the mist began to clear and was replaced with a stream of light. She didnât care that she couldnât see them. The only thing on her mind was that they were in each otherâs arms. She could smell them, the sweet scent of lilac was nostalgic. âYou know you were always the one who had to push me and now when it is my turn, I find myself reluctant to let go. Was it always like this for you?â the voice sounded bittersweet. She took in the sweet smell once again and whispered in their ear âI donât know what you are talking about but I feel like I understand your pain. Let us find each other again when we leave this place!â the sadness was gone. It was replaced with hope and faith. âOf course my love, its your turn to find me. Even if my body turns to ash, I will be waiting for you!â They gently grabbed her head and leaned forward. She closed her eyes
She could feel something on her lips. She tried kissing back but the dream was already over. As she woke up a whisper escaped her mouth âI swear to you that I will find youâ as she pushed her fingers where they had kissed her
