Julian (New)

Post by Jennycat_92 on Tue Oct 20, 2015 10:29 pm

Julian woke from a deep sleep one night with a chill in her bones. She had felt suffocated. Closing her eyes, she could still see the dark depths of the water that had moments ago surrounded her. She had been walking along a dirt path beside a pool of water when she had stopped to look in it. Her balance failed her and she toppled over into the icy water. Darkness surrounded her and then beaming bright lights came on around her. She was circling, looking at her surroundings when something grabbed her foot! Looking down, she could see a vine of some kind spiraling up her legs. Panic set in. Trying desperately to reach the surface, the air in her lungs was all but gone. Now she sat up in her bed breathing heavily and grasping her throat. She pulled the covers back to look at her right leg. Nothing, nothing but her pale, copper legs staring at her in the moonlight. With her shoulders hunched and her breathing slowing she climbed out of bed.
Walking to the window she could see the moon in all its glory, fully and vibrantly staring back at her. Stars were cascading across the sky, there hadn’t been a night yet that had been dark. Looking at the night sky helped put Julian in a calmer state of mind. Just like the dream she had had before with Eric, this one had felt surreal as well. What did it mean?
Knowing she wouldn’t be going back to sleep anytime soon, Julian grabbed a sweater and made her way to the front door. Once outside she went behind the house and grabbed a long rope she had bought in the city earlier that week. She needed to take a walk and clear her head and walking on the shore was how she had planned to do that. Julian gently eased herself onto the ground. She made her way through the brush and stepped onto the sandy shore. The sand between her toes felt soothing. Making her way toward the water she picked up the small seashells she saw along the way.
As she walked along the edge of the water her thoughts began to drift. Thoughts of the dreams she had been having lately churned in her head. She was afraid they might actually mean something. She could remember her mother telling her to always listen to her dreams. They were trying to get a message to her. Before coming to Erislan, Julian had only dreamt of her woods. To her they had been magical. They took her away from reality, and allowed her imagination to run free. She would pretend to be a princess, a warrior, a bird, and sometimes even the wind. Her dreams were the same, taking her to faraway lands. But now she felt like she was living in one of her dreams.
She began to think about her training. Eric was a great teacher. Her body was becoming stronger, more defined. She felt power… Before with her mother, Julian had always felt weak. Needless to say she did not feel like much in her little world she had. But something had awakened in her when she had come to Erislan with her father. She felt a determination, a desperation, a hunger to become something, something greater. She felt new senses, when she closed her eyes in the silence, she felt…everything. A new presence was within her as well. She never felt alone. She could not explain what was going on with her. Her body and soul felt different. It was like she was finally coming to life. Now when she thought of her future she knew without a doubt that something good, something bigger than herself was coming her way.

Hey Jen, just wanted to tell you, your story is awesome and creative and if you stop writing it, no matter how long it takes you to write it, you will regret it because it is a good story floating around in your head
