Lila's footsteps grow quieter and quieter. I open my eyes.
I wish there were more people in Aethasia who cared as much as she did, I thought.
That of course brought back painful memories that I didn't want to deal with but they kept coming back anyways.
You're going to have to deal with your past one day, Windstorm I told myself.
Someday, but not today.
I sat in the dark room for another hour, waiting for Cody to wake up, before I started to doze.
I began to dream.
I opened my eyes. I was in the Snowmoors. I looked around, confused. The icy wind bites against my chapped skin.
Why am I here?
You are always here.
"What?" I ask, "Who said that?"
"Who are you?" I ask looking around.
Those you have failed, the combined voices told me.
There was fire, a house. It was burning to the ground.
"Noooo!!!" I shouted, "This isn't real!"
I took off and flew into the sky. Several seconds later, my wings shrank to the size of insect wings and I began to fall.
I landed on hard stone. I looked up and saw rows and rows of cells.
"Kitty," a weak voice sounded.
My father was in the cell nearby me.
"Kitty," I looked around.
"Why haven't you rescued us?"
"I''ve tried...I'm still trying to find you."
"Kitty," my dad said, coughing out a green mist, "We were counting on you...cough we trusted you."
"No!" I shouted, "I'm still trying!"
You didn't save us.
You didn't save us.
You didn't save us!
I put my hands over my ears and screamed.
I am Vytanni Throttlenight.
I opened my eyes. What?
If you can hear me, I am in need of help.
"I...where are you?"
I can't hold out for much longer.
Everything turned midnight black around me.
The voices blended together into one great, horrible sound.
WHY DIDN'T YOU SAVE US! YOU FAILED US! YOU FAILED US ALL!
"AAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHHH!!!" I screamed.
The voices were gone. I was breathing heavily.
Everything was immediately bright again. I was back in the clinic room, on the chair. The lights were on.
Cody was standing in the middle of the room looking at me, golden wings splayed out behind him.
I took a deep breath, "Yes, I'm here."
