blip to next dream. it's graduation. it's raining and windy outside, i can hear it, i can feel the rain blowing in through the porch, but whenever i look out, it's normal sunshiny weather. i'm surrounded by family, but other than my real dad, it's tons of aunts and uncles that i didn't even know - nor could i stand to be around - in my dream, but my dad told me to just play along. the most annoying aunt and uncle gave me two presents, i opened them, and they were the most gaudy, gawd awful lace and taffeta shirts this side of... well, this side of anywhere. i grimaced a thank you, after which someone became upset, because one of those presents had been for my twin sister, and how DARE i open it up? i sat there aghast, saying they TOLD me to, that's why, and where IS my twin sister, anyway?!?!?
blip to another dream. i'm walking around in a drizzly haze. i feel my bare feet stepping in the dark green grass, feel the blades of grass between my toes, and feel the cool dampness. i was searching for Locke. i had lost my powers, but knew i could find them again easily. i walk around an edge of a house and see an abandoned playground, and next to it, a graveyard.
