Emergence from Darkness.
My head hurt. My heart pounded. I could hear a voice in the background, but I ignored it. I enjoyed the darkness of my eyelids. The voice became more insistent. Whoever it was, they knew I was awake. It sounded like a male voice I then felt a sharp pain in my side. That shocked my eyes open, and what I saw scared me. I saw a dragon. I blinked, and saw more.

Skidded for a fair distance good thing nobody was home I rushed into the kitchen, gathering up the cereal, bowl, milk, and spoon. I ate hurriedly, looking at the clock as I did so. 6:39 already?! I almost choked trying to finish the cereal. Eventually, I was ready. I stood before the door; hand on the knob, when a voice, so powerful, spoke to me.

The Power Within: Intro: Me.Nothing is ever as it seems. I know that I am not the only one who desires a new life, a second chance. Something has been calling me Something powerful. I can feel a presence nearby, even as I type these words I feel drawn to it Tomorrow, I will seek out the cause of this feeling. 13 years 13 years, and nothing has happened.

Good night. This may be my last on Earth.
