Your P.O.V
I was sitting on the couch at like.... 10:55pm. I wasn't watching anything I was just lost in thought, wondering what to do or if I should do anything at all.
I kept thinking for about ten more minutes when someone came in and interrupted my thoughts, it was someone I hadn't seen before. Was she new? Or was she here the whole time and I just hadn't noticed her?
She walked into the room, I looked up and jumped back a little. Her gaze snapped to mine... she had big green eyes except... it seemed that one eye was replaced with a clock.
"W-who are y-you?" I stuttered.
"I'm Clockwork." she told me.
"Are you new here?" I asked. she started laughing. I gave her a confused look, she finally sobered up and faced me again still slightly giggling,
"I've been here way longer than you! I'm not new here!" She laughed again and quickly stopped after a bit.
"Why haven't I seen you around here talking with the others?" I asked.
"I've been staying back in my room for a while after something.... tragic happened." she explained to me her smile fading.
"Oh," I said relaxing a bit. she looked back up.
"So who are you?" She asked obviously trying to escape some sad thoughts.
"I'm (Y/N)." I told her.
"How long have you been here?" She asked.
"I've been here for quite a while." I told her.
"Oh right. I've heard everyone fussing over some stuff that sounds serious and it happens a lot." she told me.
That's what happened for about two more hours of staying up, I talked to Clockwork. She was pretty fun talking to, not as much fun as Jane or Jack but still fun.
"We should probably get some sleep eventually." I told Clockwork.
"Good night." she said getting up and walking towards her room. I did the same, said good night and walked away. I walked into my room and closed the door, Jack must be in his room tonight. I thought standing there looking at the empty bed, I could hear it calling my name and I flopped down and closed my eyes.
I woke up in a place I didn't recognize, I looked around I was tied down to a table. My eyes widened. a girl stepped out from behind and a door and smiled, "Who are you!?!" I yelled from the table.
"It's sad you don't recognize me." she said putting a frown on her face, it was quickly replaced with an evil grin.
"Well I'm sorry, but I don't know who you are, I don't know wether to trust you or kill you. it's probably going to be kill you considering I'm tied down to a table!" I yelled again. she just kept smiling and took her time to answer,
She grabbed a knife from another little table and I smacked my head down on the table, it hurt but not enough to make me yell.
"Now," she said walking towards me, I started screaming.
"Why would you want to kill your-" she was about to finish when I woke up startled in my own bed.
It was just a dream! Just a dream! Just a dream.... she was about to tell me something, something that sounded important.
I stood up from my bed and walked to the door and closed it behind me as I walked over to Jack's door. I knocked on the door. I could hear Jack walking over towards me, he opened the door.
"Why are you up so late?" He asked me yawning.
"I had a dream, and I don't really want to sleep in my own bed now..." I told him looking back at my door. he smiled and moved over offering me to come in. I took the offer and walked into his room. Everything was nice and clean, he took my hand after closing the door and walked me over to the bed where I laid down and slowly fell asleep, it was hard to fall asleep considering I facing Jack and all I wanted to do was get a hug and maybe a kiss.
As if reading my mind, he opened up his arms and I curled into them and hugged him. He looked down at me and kissed me.
I didn't remember anything after that. I just woke up in Jacks room, he wasn't there. I got up from the bed and walked to the door, and over to my room. I opened the door and walked in, threw some clothes on and then walked out.
I walked down the stairs and sat on the couch where Jack was sitting and curled up in his arms. Ben was playing games in front of us but I didn't really feel like watching today... I was lost in thought again, could my dream have tried to tell me something? They usually do, I had the power to see the future and that dream seemed like something I'm being told about. I stopped in my thoughts, oh no! I looked down at the carpet, this can't be happening! Not so soon!
