I wake up to light beaming in my eyes.
I immediately scrunch my eyes tight to block it out. But it doesn't work.
I roll over to try and go back to sleep when I am shocked to see a sleeping man next to me.
Who is this?
As I thought that all the memories of last night come flooding back into my head.
But this still doesn't explain why Arden is next to me.
I sit up and move over to the other side of the cave waiting for him to wake up.
I use the stick from last night to just doodle on the ground.
"Ella come see my drawing!"
I walk over and notice two parents and two kids.
"It's our family" he says with a goofy smile, pointing to each one individually and telling me who is who.
"Let's go hang it on the fridge buddy"
I grab his hand with the picture and guide him to the fridge using a dinosaur magnet to hang it up.
My memory is short lived when i hear Arden move. I look over at him to see him staring at me, with confused eyes.
"Hello" i say, interrupting the silence.
"Do you... understand me?"
I smile a little. I feel the slightest bit less lonely, knowing someone here can understand me. Even if its just a little bit.
"Where am i?"
"Near my people"
"Your people? There's more of you?" I ask shocked.
"Of course" with that he sits up rubbing his back.
I just stare in awe. There has been a hidden planet that we never even knew about, with organisms like us.
