Does anyone else dream in the third person?
It was evening, and I was strolling around one of the many small residential streets that are in my hometown with Ev and Nichols. We were discussing how in the future that Nichols and I were destined to war against one another
. It seemed silly at the time to all of us, but it also had that fatalistic ring- that it was inescapable fate
Ev noted that he wanted to conduct another experiment, and instructed Nichols to grab me. I ran, giggling, not sure what he meant until they caught up with me in my neighbor's backyard
. When we reunited, Ev announced he was going to investigate the future, and instructed both Nichols and myself to stand back-to-back
and link elbows. We did so, and Nichols leaned forward, hoisting me into the air- apparently an established method of time travel
, as my body suddenly erupted with blue squiggly light and I vanished.
When I came to, I found myself in Nichols's bedroom- I knew it was so because he's the only one I know with the Time of Thin Blood
book, displayed prominently in one of his dorm shelves- and then turned around to see his bed. Unsurprisingly, he was just rousing from consciousness, looking a bit older; surprisingly, he also had a girl
sleeping beneath the sheets, too. When he came to, he instantly jumped on me
verbally, demanding to know what the hell I was doing in there; I defended myself as best I could, trying not to make reference to the fact that I was time travelling. My time, so to speak, was apparently up, as I then suddenly found myself hurtling back through time and space
The other two guys were there, looking at me expectantly
. I said nothing, and linked elbows with Nichols once more to send him into the future.
