Author's note: I really have no idea where I'm going with this story, the questions that arise will be answered later, I promise.
The night air was crisp enough to cut someone's head off, yet there they stood on the beach. Kirby looked into his eyes, dying to know his name, just his name. She looked into his eyes. There were so many questions she wanted to ask him, but when she opened her mouth nothing ever came out.
She let her eyes wander between the moon and the light waves of the ocean. She couldn't do anything. She couldn't leave. She couldn't speak. She was powerless against him. Everything about him made her curious. She just had to find out more.
He stood there his light blonde hair blowing slightly in the wind. It wasn't tall enough for the wind to take full control over it. His blue eyes almost cold enough to freeze a person to death were alert. He was always alert. Looking for the danger waiting in the shadows.
"Shh…" He whispered leaning in closer to her body. He looked around not wanting anyone to see what would happen next. "Close your eyes…"
She didn't know what it was about him that made her want to listen. She knew she shouldn't, but it was like he had her hypnotized and she couldn't break the spell. Kirby let her eyelids rest easy. She was so scared about what he was going to do. She didn't want to kiss him, yes she did. But she wasn't sure if she could trust him. How do you trust someone when you don't even know their name?
Darkness surrounded the innocent woman. That was it. There was nothing else to say as the cold air surrounded the lifeless body at the foot of the waves. It was barely breathing. It was alive and dead at the same time. The body was no longer the same body that carried Kirby's soul. It was something completely different.
"Kirby!" Someone started screaming. The voice came from out of nowhere. "Kirbs! I mean it! Wake the fuck up!"
Kirby rubbed her eyes trying to block the fluorescent lights of the library. She cursed silently. She had fallen asleep trying to write her thesis paper again. She was never going to get the paper done on time. She looked at the furious redhead in front of her and smiled.
"Don't smile at me!" Alex growled putting her hands on her hips. She wasn't actually mad at her roomie. She knew she had been problems sleeping lately. She just hated when people set her up. They were supposed to go clubbing with their friend Brooke tonight.
"I'm so sorry I fell asleep. Let's go back I'll change and then we can leave. I promise I won't take long," Kirby pleaded throwing all her books into her backpack. She threw her backpack on and started to head toward their dorm.
"Hey Kirbs!" Alex called after her friend staring at a note on the table. It didn't have a name on it. She just grabbed, she knew Kirby would be furious if she forgot something she needed. She was such a perfectionist. She caught up to Kirby and handed her the note.
"I had it again. I don't understand…" Kirby had never been this scared in her life. She was used to seeing premonition… But a dream of her own death was just plain creepy. Who the hell was the guy? That beautiful voice whispering calmly to her.
"What this no-name look like? Is he a hottie?" Alex said as they took the short walk from the library to their dorm. The sun had just set so the cold air was beginning to settle in. Both girls hated walking in the dark, but it wasn't like they had a choice.
"He's beautiful. Like the type of beauty that isn't real. I swear he ahs the softest voice I have ever heard. I can't get it out of my head." Kirby said as she stopped walking. Her eyes looked up at the moon and then closed willingly. It was almost as if he had told her at that very moment to close her eyes. It was like he was always with her, but never really there. Kirby shook her; she was too old to have imaginary friends, besides Tiana her guardian.
"Whatever," Alex shrugged. She never knew what to say when the dreams came up. If Kirby had asked her to kick his ass, then she'd be willing to do it. But Kirby was always the one with the answers. It was weird for her to be asking the questions.
"I'm scared…" Kirby whispered looking at her friend. She had this bad feeling in her gut. The only other time she had a bad feeling was when her mother had died. She didn't want her dreams to come true, she didn't want to die.
"I wish I knew what to tell you…" Alex said. She hated to see Kirby in pain. Kirby was a bright cheerful girl, at least the Kirby she knew. She just looked at her friend. The two girls shared a moment of silence, knowing what the other was thinking. They had to figure out what the hell was going on.
Alex ran up to the door, to see that it was already opened. It was busted open. Which would be impossible, she just left and Brooke should be inside. She panicked hoping that Brooke was okay. She wasn't here to protect her. She wouldn't be able to live with herself if Brooke was hurt.
Alex ran upstairs leaving Kirby standing outside alone in the dark. She didn't know what had come over her, but Kirby had the sudden urge to read the note that was in her hand. She just stared at it for a moment to nervous to read it. She knew the handwriting didn't belong to anyone she knew. It was old calligraphic style, there was no way it belonged to anyone she knew.
Please don't be frightened. I have no intentions of hurting you, but there is someone out there who does. I can't write down everything I need to tell you in a letter. All I can do is beg you to meet me at 1:30 in the morning at the water fountain in front of the main building on your campus. I'll be waiting…. Please, I need you to be there.
She looked at the ending. I need you…. It was all she remembered. He was saying it in her head. She shouldn't go, who knows if he really will be there. It could all be a set up. But she did want all of her questions answered. She shrugged it off and looked at her door. The hinges were broken… Maybe it would be a good idea to meet him.
She slowly walked up the stairs picking up the various items all over the floor. What the fuck had happened to their dorm? She knew something was wrong when Alex didn't say anything. She stopped after only taking four steps into her dorm. She couldn't go any further. There was someone waiting. She needed help…. I need you.
She looked at her watch it was already 1. Maybe he was waiting for her. Maybe he could help her. She didn't have any other option. She had to take her chances and put all her trust in this stranger.
