[Dream | Week 16, Day 7] Future


It starts with a distant whisper, ambiguous words but cutting tenors swaying blades of grass under a moonlit and diamond sky. Sharp, razor like, these tenors that resonates like a distant grumble from what sounds like a majestic large beast, the notes of those distant words stronger than a desert storm's wind. It makes knees buck together and toes point inward in an attempt to hold the stances together.

Arms up, an attempt at a fleshy shield against the wind that blows and blows.

But there is nothing but an empty field of grass stained in inky blue and silver. Cold, almost medical.

Lonely.

Abandoned.

It makes green irises haze and turn left and right, searchingsearchingsearching. Petrified. Alone. Trapped in this vista of green and perfection, the things that one sees in a botanical garden, or a Hollywood film and animation. Unreal, too beautiful, perhaps something that only exists within the mystical world of the Clow Cards. It feels a little like heaven, the overreaching beauty that spreads endlessly.

(Is mother here?)

Another voice joins the air, this time, the wind blowing against the sharp and almost esoteric words that she cannot understand. But they're angry sounds and they make her raise and clamp hands against her ears, knees folding and head burying against them.

(Ghosts! Monsters! Get away please get away!)

Angry sounds, yes, but something gentler underneath all the white hot and searing power. Warmer. More powerful (or is it just angry at being mocked?), like the sun rising and spilling gold over blue. Brightening. Divine.

(Is this heaven?)

She knows it's dark, she knows that the jungle and towering greens around her are like giants and monsters. But the warmth of what she hopes is the sun seems to continue to spread, fighting back the coldness of the blue and the curls of shadows that comes with roars of beasts and cutting notes.

(Is this hell?)

A blink, a heartbeat, and damp green eyes peel open.

Before her, the first strike starts with a flash of blinding white.

(Angels?)

And ends with a streak of fiery red against gritty blue.

(Monsters?)

In its wake, there is a force that shakes the ground and splits it open, a force so strong that it wrecks the very core of the earth. A battle that splits the sky wide open, gold and white against silver and blue. Moon and sun. Veins forming and crawling like spiked vines closer and closer towards the soles of her feet, consuming. Destruction spreading like an ocean's flow and the pull of a strong current.

This battle between opposing dominions.

This war.

(But… why?)

And she stands right in the middle of it.

Helpless.

(What do i do? What do I do?)

Mnn...

[There is a girl, asleep and stirring, still in her school uniform, hat skewed on her head. Sakura pushes her face off what seems to be like a flowerbed of dandelions and a patch of grass, looks confused--

Soft ‘areh?’, blinking green eyes and puzzled and staring right ahead at the screen of the Hitomi. Disoriented movement, young hands moving to straighten. Hitomi gets knocked off the side and the feed goes off.]

[A... female voice. Sakura perks a little bit because it sounds so polite and so nice. So of course, ah, ah, she should reply! A bit of a stumble on her words and then, ]

Good morning!

[And then... awkward pause...]

Uhmm...

[Oh man, she's being laughed at. Sakura feels her ears burn a little and she nods, a little too rapidly. And then shakes her head and then... oh hell, hanging her head now.]

Y-Yes... though I didn't mean to! I was in class and... uhmm... somehow I am here.

Run down…?

[Just because the lady says she's not laughing at her, doesn't make the embarrassment ebb away. Inwardly, Sakura wants to melt and hide her face a little bit. She must have done something really embarrassing.

But.

But!

Maybe she can get some answers.]

Uhmm… if it's not so much trouble…?

[Give her a second. Sakura is staring at the screen like someone just slapped her really hard. Because hey, she can take care of herself. But that had been because it had been easier. She had people around her who can help her. It is also an environment she is used to.

To be told this?

Hoe.

HOEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!]

I…

[No, no, it'll be okay. She'll be fine! She's not really alone. She's got her cards. She'll find a way back. In fact! This might be a Clow Card's doing right here! But sometimes it takes time to catch cards and Keroberos had always been present.

Big eyes. Listening to Rin with big eyes. But okay. Okay. The silence is basically a what-do-I-do kind of silence.

But okay. Okay.

Everything will be all right. Absolutely all right. It's okay! She can work. She'll figure out the card on her own and it's fine! Just fine!]

T-Then...

[Sakura stutters briefly, and then clears her throat.]

Natsuno-ryokan. Okay. I can do that! Thank you, Rin-san.

[Except... ahhhh, this isn't going to be easy!]

A-Ahh! Rin-san! I don't want to trouble you! I can -

[The Hitomi scratches with static for a bit and she clears her throat.]

-- I can find the ryokan! Rin-san has already helped so much!

[Besides, if it really is a card, she would rather no one gets close lest they see her doing something strange. And then how on earth would she explain that?

But wait a minute.]

B-But, if… Rin-san, do you live here? Kannagara…?

[Sakura could use the company. She really can and while she feels a little embarrassed for wanting to have some sort of adult around her, she hums a bit.

Stores that information. Wishes more than ever Keroberos is present.]

Then… if… Rin-san insists uhmm

[Ah, this is so embarrassing!]

I don't really know where I am. But there is a... uhmm...

[A rustle, and a few footsteps.]

... a really big tree. A forest of some sort? I can walk towards the road if that'll make it easier.

Okay!

[Sakura's okay trails off with a soft hmnn! before she pretty much just... well, sits under the said tree and waits. She tries to focus on the strange feeling that fills the place instead.

Not really working there, but it kills time though.]

[Sakura perks up and stands up immediately, doing the polite bow.]

Rin-san! Hello!

[Give her a minute, Rin, she'll be looking at you all curious.]

Eto thank you for coming to get me, Rin-san!

[That is really nice of her! Sakura thinks she should try to return the nice favor back. But how?]

No! No!

[Flailing hands, shaking head. Every bit of an exaggerated gesture to assure Rin that no, no, she didn't mind the wait at all.]

Rin-san, you were really quick! I'm glad to meet you in person! Should we go…?

[Quite the contrary. Sakura actually takes the hand rather gratefully, accepts the offered help and feels her cheeks color. Not only is Rin-san kind and considerate, but she is also graceful. Sakura doesn't have that much of an older female role model in her life yet. So to get this kind of attention…

Well. It's nice.]

Unn!

[Cheerful! And hoping to keep up too. Hand in Rin's, and she waits patiently to be led to wherever it is Rin says the shelter is at.]

I'm all right.

[Sakura smiles up at her, craning her chin upwards. And falls silent for a while…]

I am just wondering how it's possible that… you mentioned gods? Are they really here? In a shape or form?

[Sakura thinks of her dream.]

Do they always do that? Bring people here I mean?
