These nightmares won’t stop! Burning, screaming, yelling, cursing. Every night I wake in a cold sweat and why? Because some damn Elf had to go and piss off everyone and destroy half the world. And we won’t do anything about it! What can I do? No one knows what it was like on the other side of that wall. Everyone here…They were safe. But, no, us on the other side, we’ll have to live with this for the rest of our lives.
Tyron showed me something today. Says he found a group of people like us – people that want to change the world and make it a better place to live. He says they know about pain, they’ve lived on the other side. He calls them family; says they care. He told me my dad, he doesn’t care. If he did, he’d do something about it, about the pain. He’d calm my nightmares. Tyron says he doesn’t get nightmares anymore. Says they know how to make them go away. That’s when he told me they could do the same for me.
That’s when he showed me – his new tattoo. It was pretty cool. Nothing too fancy, but, I don’t know, it just seemed right. Like I needed one. It was on the underside of his arm, from near the elbow up to the wrist. A simple candle drawn in black ink. But, the cool part was the candle wasn’t lit – if was snuffed out. There was wisps of smoke and everything. Tyron said they were going to make their own light out of the darkness, but they first had to rid the world of this light – this impure, hated light that caused people so much pain.
Screw Dad! What does he know? He said he heard rumors about the type of people Tyron has been hanging out with and says I can’t keep him as a friend. Says that isn’t why he brought us here. I told him Tyron is my friend, and he can’t change that. He said I needed new friends. Argh! I hate him. Why does he keep me shackled? Why can’t he let me be who I want? He just doesn’t understand. He says he does, but he doesn’t. He won’t. Ever.
I just have to prove myself. I just have to prove myself. I just have to prove myself.
I can do this.
Where am I? I’m not in Fareen, but…this place is strange. What are all those sounds? Are other people here? Where’s Lan? She said she’d be there for me. And Tyron, where is he? How did I even get here?
