*~* Rikku's P.O.V. *~*

While I was asleep, I had this weird dream with a girl in it. I got the feeling I knew who this was, but I couldn't put my finger on it. She couldn't have been more than 12 years old and she had the most piercing blue eyes that I have ever seen. And then I saw myself standing across from her. "Who are you?" I asked her.

No response. The only thing I got from her was that she turned around and walked out of the room. Thinking that she wanted me to follow her, I did. We ended up standing in front in front of my house. All of a sudden, I heard a woman's voice that sounded familiar. Almost too familiar. As I turned around I heard her say, "Oh there you are, Alison! You had me so worried about you! Never leave like that again you hear me?!" The woman half ran, half walked to the girl. As she went to her, she went right through me without even noticing.

Alison responded to the woman, "Yes, momma." As her mom wrapped her arms around Alison, I saw Alison look over the woman's shoulder. That name. . . Where do I know that name from? Just as I was thinking, her mom let go of her daughter and looked behind her just as I took a step and a twig snapped beneath my feet. "Who's there?" she called out. She looked around everywhere behind her. Not seeing anything, she told her frightened Alison to get inside the house. She did as she was told and ran into the house.

"Whoever and where ever you are, I suggest you leave right away," she threatened the empty space in front of her. She looked right at me and I swear she saw me, but she was totally oblivious to the person in front of her. And that was when I remembered and why that girl had brought me there. But could it really be? As much as I didn't want to believe it, I was sure that it was true. Before I could even think anything else or say something I knew she wouldn't hear, it was all taken away.

The next thing I knew, I woke up in my own bed with a sleeping Shane next to me. I almost forgot that he was even here. I looked to the side on my nightstand and saw that it was only 8:30 pm. Before I even had the chance to get up, my stomach growled. I got nervous as I saw Shane stir, but thankfully he stayed asleep. I carefully got out of my bed, grabbed my phone from my desk, and walked downstairs.

I looked at my phone and saw that I had 3 new messages. 1 from Jackie and 2 from Zander. I decided to read Jackie's first. What happened to you? I hope that you are ok. Tell me when you wake up or whatever. Love you. I'll text her back later. Now I decided to look at the ones that Zander sent me. Rikku, please tell me that you are ok. They wouldn't let me take you home after what happened. I'm really worried about you. That's not too bad. Now I have to look at the other one. Please answer me Rikku. I need to know if you are ok or not. Text me back as soon as you get this.

After I read them, I slipped my phone into my back pocket. I swear, sometimes Zander can be so protective you would think that he was in love with me. I heard my stomach growl again so I went into the kitchen and soon realized that I didn't go buy any food yet so I went to go grab my car keys only to remember that it is still at school. Damn it, why don't I ever have my car anymore?

Right as I was thinking about that, I heard a knock on the door. I went to answer it and on the way I saw that girl's reflection in the patio door's glass. I was slightly freaked, but then I remembered who it was and calmed down a little bit. I went and answered the door and saw my two favorite people there. "Hey guys. What you doing here?" I asked Jackie and Zander.

"Oh nothing really. Just wondering why you haven't answered our messages," said Zander sort of irritated, but with a hint of joking. It's hard for him to contain that half smile that I love so much. Not that I would tell him that.

"I have been sleeping my ass off for like the past eternity thank you very much." I looked into their hands and saw that they were carrying food.

Both of them noticed and smiled at me as they walked in and put it on the table. As they started taking the containers out of the bag, I remembered that Shane was still upstairs. I hurried up the staircase and went into my room. I noticed that he wasn't even there. I walked out onto my balcony and saw that his car wasn't where it was either. Shrugging it off, I went back downstairs where the other two were, not taking a second glance at the cracked door at the end of the hallway.
