Chapter 5: The vision.
*I kind messed up last chapter, hopefully thid goes better.
I turned around and walked away from my brother’s room. I headed to the kitchen to help my mom with gathering food. Surprisingly, there was a chest of food that survived.
“You won’t believe what’s in here! Pots, foil and even stew!” my mother said. “You can help me with getting these last few stack of food.” I did ad she asked. It took a while, but I eventually finished.
“Mom, that’s all of the food,” I said.
My mom looked at me and around the house, probably to make sure we aren’t missing anything. She then said, “Alright, let’s go.”
We left the site of the burning and I followed my mom to the plaza center. There is where most shops are and that’s where the trade portal is located. I only went there once, since the walk is very far.
While I was walking I felt strange. My mom didn’t notice. I started to limp. Urghh… I thought. Am I sick? My mom finally seemed to notice, and said, “Are you alright dear?” I couldn’t talk, then I blacked out.
I don’t know how to describe it, but it wasn’t really like a black out. It was strange. I felt lightweight in this dream like place. Where am I? What is this place? I thought. Then, I saw someone in the distance. He was a blockhead with nice leather clothing. What a minute…no, this can’t be… I knew who it was. It was my brother.
He’s alive? I thought, shocked. I came closer to him, and he turned around. I was crying, and ran towards him. “E-Emily? It’s Y-you?” he asked, surprised.
“You’re alive?” I exclaimed, excited to see him.
“Errgh…This is just happening in your head.” he said. My smile faded from my face.
“Wait, what do you mean?” I asked.
“Well, you see, when I was working as an admin, they gave me a note and told me that something is happening to the world. Corruption they say,” he said. He paused, and continued. “I don’t know much about what happened then.”
“Brother, I have a question.”
“What’s this?” I held out my time crystal and showed him.
Her brother was shocked, and quickly said, “W-where did you find that?”
“On the ground somewhere.” I said.
“O-oh!” he said. “That’s how you are getting this vision!”
“What!?” I asked.
My brother looked at me, and said, “Yes, I remember…Those who can see the time crystals are special they say. Only you and we, the admins, can see them. I never believed it anyways, until now!”
Before I coukd talk, I felt strange again.
“Our time is running out! I suppose this is goodbye,” My brother said.
“What about this note?” I showed him the note I found in this chest a few hours ago.
He came closer, and examined it. “That note…Emily, it’s happening.”
“What’s happening?” I said, but it was too late. I woke up, and my mom was hugging me.
