A – 61

A storm is coming. My uncle’s friend, Dr. Cooper, has built this incredible weather research station. A lot of the technology is based on stuff from the Other world. I didn’t know anyone even knew about all of the Other world stuff.

When we got there Uncle T landed the plane on a pad that rose out of the water. They have a secret hanger under the lagoon. There was someone from the past there. His name is Gerem. What a shock! I didn’t know that anyone from the past lived anywhere but in the cone. They have recreated the old world environment in a large arboretum.

Seth still isn’t talking to me.

We are going to the control center in a little while. I can hardly wait for his reaction.

I talked with Uncle T today about showing Seth something from our world that he wouldn’t have in his. Maybe if Seth realizes that we have wonders he hasn’t experienced, it will help him to cheer up a little.

Uncle T said that he had a friend that runs a weather research station in the Atlantic. They record hurricanes and help figure out why they happen. He called him and now it looks like we are going to go to an island and see a real hurricane.

It has been strange around Seth. Okay, strange with Seth in my head. He has sunk into a funk, even worse than before. I don’s know what to do. The thoughts coming from him are gray.

I went down to visit Oran today. He was an artist in his world. I guess he worked in one of the cities that was taken over by the Nephilim. He barely escaped with his life. I guess he was one of the leaders in the resistance against them.

While I was there he drew a picture of me. It is good, but strange to see myself with such white hair. I thought I would keep it here in my journal. When mom and dad come back they may want to see it.

Okay, life just got really strange. I was going with my uncle to town to get some supplies. We entered the crystal cavern and I got sick. No, I mean I really got sick. I felt like someone was trying to pull my brain out of my head. Then I felt like I was going to get sick.

Uncle T turned around and went back. We found out the same thing happened to Seth. Lume did an experiment and found out that something has happened to us. We, Seth and I, are now connected mentally. MENTALLY!! We are stuck having to stay by each other. We can’t be separate.

What’s worse is that our thoughts are really becoming mixed up. It is like I can’t shut him out. Both my thoughts and his are there. The same in his mind. And, it is getting worse. I have reacted to something only to figure out that it is not my thought, but Seth’s.

I can never go home. Seth and I are stuck together forever.

Things are getting weird. I am seeing more of Seth’s thoughts, and I know he is seeing more of mine. I mean it is really getting weird. I am even seeing some of his daydreams, I mean even some I know he wouldn’t want me to see.

Let me see if I can explain.  Earlier this summer I was given a drink by Mara that made a part of my mind open to hear thoughts, if they were directed at me. With practice I was able to send my thoughts to Seth. At first I couldn’t control it, but with practice it became easy.

Then, after the trip to Seth’s world, I was more “tuned” to Seth than any of the others. I was able to send and receive easier. But now! Now it is like the control is slipping. Too many of his thoughts are coming in. I know from looks he has given me as well as thoughts that too many of mine are being picked up by him.

We had an argument yesterday. Okay, I know that friends argue. This time though we were shocked to realize that the argument was all by thought. I mean, it was like we both suddenly realized it was all thought. It shocked both of us. I think Seth was more shook up. He told me that he had never done that before.

Something is going on. I am going to have to ask Mara about it.

I am finally almost back to normal. Mara had made my skin and hair more transparent, like theirs is, for my trip back to the past. It has taken over a month to wear off. It has been a slow process.
Seth and I have been going down to the cove to swim almost every day. We have gone out into the main lake a couple of times. The large creature that lives in the lake has come after us twice. We have to wait a day or so before we go back out there.
I went up to the edge of the cone today and just sat and looked out over the mountains. It is an amazing view. So much has happened this summer. Most of what I though true about the world has changed.

I am feeling better today. It was the worse case of flu I have ever had. I had some weird dreams. I wonder how Seth handled it. He has been staying at his grandmother’s while I was sick.
I tried to convince Polly that I was better, but she won’t let me get up today. She says that I need rest. Yuk, I am tired of being in this bed.

I am even sicker today. I have slept most of the day. Seth has been in the room a lot — I think. I threw up twice today.

I have been having such weird dreams. In one I was running through a dark tunnel and there was water at the end that I had to jump into. The tunnel continued on the other side of it. There was a monster too. He was big and breathed fire.

Polly brought me up some chicken soup. Why does everyone think chicken soup is good when you are sick. It was funny though, I thought Seth was going to get sick when I started eating it.

I have to go back to sleep. I wish my mom was here.

Today I am home sick. I have cause something and have been in bed most of the day. I have a fever and I threw up once. Polly has been up a couple of times to check on me. Philo is away right now. Seth seems to be keeping his distance. Polly says it is because he has never been around anyone sick before and it kind of scares him.
Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow.

A – 8 the dream

I had a dream that I was playing on the beach under a magenta sky. (Isn’t weird, until this summer I didn’t know what magenta was, now I know it is a rich deep purple.) Anyway. I was building sand castles. There were other kids building them too. My sand castle looked like any I would see any kid building at the beach, maybe a little better, but the other kids were building these wonderful structures out of sand. Tall towers, curved arches. Then one of the kids saw my castle and started laughing. The others came around and pointed, laughing at it and then at me.

One of the tall boys came over and kicked my sand castle over and told me that I was too stupid to build sand castles on their beach. That I was too stupid to even be on their beach. That stupid people like me needed to be fed to the monster. The other kids agreed and they all grabbed me and picked me up. They started chanting “monster, monster, monster.

Then I realized it was me they were calling the monster. I was the one who killed my sister, I was the monster. A new voice joined them and I twisted my head around and there was my sister, there was Mary and she was chanting monster, monster, monster.

Everything stopped. All the noise, all the movement, everything. The sky turned a calming blue. Then I was standing. Seth was there standing next to me, telling me it is just a dream. The kids were gone. Mary was gone. Seth standing there was like a rock, like my whole life was anchored with him.

“Let’s swim,” he said. And . . . and . . .  I can’t remember what happened after that.
