"I had a dream"
"You're right, that is pretty weird."
"Very funny, Kai"
"Thank you, I try"
"The dream, what was it about?"
"Oh yeah, sorry, i got distracted
yeah, so, it was all dark. like, pitch black everywhere, except for this boy."
"He knew me, but I didn't know him. told me he loved me, and that I needed to find him. he looked hurt, like, real hurt. he gave me something, I think?
i don't know. it felt so real and yet so distant. it was so... painful."
was the boy Cal?"
Acorn rolled her eyes, as the situation dictated.
"Oh, shut up, I never liked Cal"
"I don't know, you two seemed pretty chummy last we bumped into him"
Acorn dutifully gave Kai a soft shove as Kai giggled her head off. The moment was gone, and the day was still young.
