For Your Consideration
.There's the strangest excitement today,
Pawns: Michael and Emmer
.if you're Awake then you're welcome to hear.
.I got a gift and it blew me away,
Setting: Michael's classroom
.it's like the rush has gone straight to my brain.
Scene: Emmer gives Michael her most recent journals
.Make the world we know disappear.
Emmer trotted through the vacant hallways, all the students having gone home for the day. She herself had gone home, but only to grab the books that now weighed her arms down. Journals. Books full of her experiences and the things she'd seen in the Reverie. These were the last of them; for now anyway. She hoped they would last Mr. Ellis longer than the others had. He'd pretty much gone through the other fifty or so books in about a month. She doubted the measly ten books in her arms would offer more than a weeks worth of reading, if that.
She finally reached his room, the door shut. Emmer gave a light groan and kicked the bottom of the door with the toe of her boot, hoping he was in the room to get the door for her. She wondered if he was Dreaming himself yet. He'd mentioned nights being more restless last week, when she'd stayed a bit after class to talk with him about the journals he'd recently gone through. Maybe he'd wake up soon.
Her thoughts were interrupted as his student teacher- what was her name? She didn't teach Emmer's class yet- opened the door and let her in with a light smile, exiting herself.
"Hey Mr. Ellis!" Emmer grinned, padding over to his desk. "These
're the last ten. I started a new one las' night since Kou's chimera picked mine up and theyre travelin' together. It shouldn't take long to fill another." She set the journals on the desk in front of him, leaning on the hard wood to the right just a little. "Still havin' trouble sleepin?"
