I just stand there as everyone looks at me. I don't know how to feel. My twin is in that place hiding from a monster with no face and rows of sharp teeth. And I can see into the place, like I have true sight.

Mike stands up and walks over to me.

"What is eleven meaning?" He asks me. I look behind me to the couch and sit down.

"Okay" I breathe out in a shaky way. Everyone sits at the d&d table and looks at me.

"Last night, I had a 'dream' I was in this cold, dark place, and I saw a monster there" i stop as I close my eyes and imagine it again, as I tear rolls down my cheek "it was going to kill me, but my mum woke me up, I thought it was just a really realistic dream, but with what eleven just did, I'm not to sure anymore" I say as rub my arm.

"No" eleven says, everyone looks at her

"It wasn't a dream" she says slowly, and I sigh.

"Okay" Lucas says as he gets up "I'm going now" he says as he walks towards the stairs

"Are you serious Lucas, Gabbie just opened up and you're leaving?" Mike yells at him

"My Mum would want me home by now, look, I don't want to get into all this mess with powers" Lucas says as he looks at eleven "I'm sorry to you mike and I'm sorry to you're girlfriend" he says as he walks off.

"I'll go talk to him, see you guys tomorrow" Dustin says as he walks up the stairs after Lucas.

Eleven gets up and goes to her den that Mike made her.

I just sit on the couch, knowing that I'll have to go to bed, and go to sleep, but I don't want to, I'm scared I might go there again.

Mike gets up and sits next to me on the couch.

"Are you Alright?"

"Not really, my brother is missing and it turns out I can see into other dimensions" I say with a chuckle trying to lighten the mood, he chuckles too.

"We should probably head to bed now, we've got school tomorrow" He says as he stands up and holds out his hand, I grab his hand as he helps me off the couch. We both say goodnight to eleven and walk upstairs to his room.

We walk in and all the toys that fell off the shelf from when Eleven slammed the door with her mind was still on the ground.

I went up to my top bunk and covered my face as Mike changed, and he did the same as I changed.

We both lay in our bed. I'm not sure if Mike is awake but I don't want to sleep.

"You awake Gabs?" I hear from below


"Can't sleep?"

"No thanks to you wheeler" I say with a smile and I hear a chuckle below.

"But seriously, you can't sleep because of last night?"


"Do you want to sleep with me?" He says and I let it linger for a few seconds. Never in all my years alive has Mike Wheeler, my crush since before I knew what a crush was, asked me to sleep with him. Not like that but still.

"If you don't mind"

"No, it's cool"

I quickly take off my blanket and climb down the ladder and see mike had made room in his bed for me. I slide in beside him and I drape the blanket over me. We a good 5 centimeters away from touching each other as we lay in silence in this single bed.

A few minutes pass and we haven't moved a bit, I don't know what to do, should I turn over with my back to him or should I face him? Should I just leave altogether?



"I want to tell you something" he says as he turns his body to face me, I do the same and our faces are centimeters apart, I can feel the warmth coming off him. I can't see much of his face as we are in darkness. But I can see his eyes and lips.

"What is it?" I whisper

"I want you to know" he stops for second, thinking of what to say "that I will always be there for you, no matter what, Okay?" I mean, that's not what I thought he was going to say but this is one of the nicest things he's ever said to me, and he's said a lot.

"Thank you Mike" I say as I give him a hug, he hugs back. We never let go of the hug as I slowly drift to sleep in his arms.

That night I didn't see anything but Mike Wheeler.

I hear a yell from downstairs "kids, get up, time to get ready for school, Dustin and Lucas will be here soon" Mrs Wheeler yells.

I slowly open my eyes and see my face right next to Mike. I look down and see we are both still holding each other. I start poking him so he wakes up. He opens his eyes and smiles

"Hey" He says

"Let go Wheeler you're mum might come upstairs and see us" I say as I push him off me and get out of his bed.

"But we did nothing"

"She doesn't know that" he just shrugs as we both get ready for school. I'm deciding to go to school even though mum said I didn't have to, I just want to take my mind off things.

Once Mike and I are both ready we head downstairs and see that Dustin and Lucas are already waiting for us.

"About dam time" Lucas says, I roll my eyes.

"Let's go down to the basement, I need to give El her breakfast and we need to talk" Mike says as we all nod, Dustin and Lucas make there way down to the basement as Mike and I go into the kitchen. I grab my breakfast, which is eggos and Mike grabs his breakfast and el's.

We make our way downstairs and see El sitting on the couch playing with Mike's walkie talkie. Mike hands her the Eggo and she starts eating it as we all gather around the D&D table.

New chapter, I kinda like this one, there needed to be a Mike and Gabbie chapter and I handed one to you. You're welcome.
