Hello everyone! Hope your having a lovely weekend. 🙂 Here I am to share MORE AAWC with you guys! 🙂
The rain poured down over the street. I quickly darted through sea of umbrellas, suitcases, and people until the sea broke in front of an alley entrance. I stopped to catch my breath.
In the alley stood a tall boy holding an umbrella. His face was shrouded behind the umbrella. I hurried on to the train station. Today was my last day in NYC and now it was time to head back to Connecticut.
The train station loomed ahead hundreds of people streamed out of it while others came in. It was humongous.
“Littleton, Connecticut leaving in 5 minutes at platform 10.” said a loud booming voice overhead.
That’s me I thought rushing toward my platform.
*sorry about the pink edges… 😛
I entered outside to my platform finally the rain had stopped and all was quite. I hopped onto the train and away we flew back home.
I awoke with a start we we’re passing a tranquil pond, the sunset glowed bright not the normal black and white, must’ve been asleep for a while I thought.
“You have been asleep for a while.” said a voice in my head. I turned around who was that. Then I saw him the man from the alley he was about 17 yrs old. He smiled at me when I turned around.
“Hello!” said the voice again it felt soft and quite in my mind.
“Is it you?” I asked in my mind.
“Yep! My name is Kaleb. You’ve been chosen to be able to See.”
“Is that why I saw the sunset.. colors?” I asked.
“Yes, but don’t tell anyone all color has been drained from the world by a certain organization. I can see it and now so can you.” he said.
“Wow this is really weird do you always talk to people like this.”
“Sorry. You’re the first person I’ve spoken to in ten years, like this.” he said.
“This is amazing..!” I said.
“LITTLETON STATION!” said the conductor.
“This is my stop.” I said.
“I get off here to.” he said.
I quickly got off the train and there on the platform was Kaleb.
“Alrighty.. you ready to see this.” he said.
“Oh you actually talk.” I said, his voice sounded almost the same as before soft and comforting.
“C’mon follow me.” he said pulling me down the street.
“Look at this, what color is this.” he asked.
It was a flower… my brain was working.. a word 1 word tugged at my brain.
“Purple!” I blurted out.
“That’s right!” he said.
“And the middle is yell… ow.” I said sounding out the foreign word.
“Correct!” said Kaleb excitedly.
“What color is this?” he asked holding up another flower.
“Yellow.” I said, I was good at this.
“You’re really good at this.” said Kaleb.
“Thanks. What am I supposed to do with this “color” knowledge?” I asked.
“We use it to find other people who we can share it with to. They’re are tons of other people in the world who are just now discovering this power. We have a list and keep a careful eye on each person until the manifest the power. We want to show the world the real colors and make sure everyone knows the truth about what happened.” he said.
“What happened?” I asked.
“Nothing you need to concern yourself with. End of subject.” he said.
“Okay…” I replied.
“Now let me show you more stuff… in the meadow”
“Brown.” I said. This was my 19th color. I’d learned so many pink, purple, yellow, blue, brown, black, red, white, grey, black, orange, green, and so many others. The sun was now just a glimmer on the horizon and the street lamps had turned on.
“I need to get you home.” said Kaleb as the sun sunk lower into the horizon.
“I don’t want to leave this.” I said motioning to everything around us we had wandered far from the edge of town and we’re out in the open forest.”
“C’mon.” said Kaleb ushering me back.
My house loomed ahead it was small but home.
“Look!” said Kaleb motioning to the ground.
“Pink flowers.” I said.
“The first color you could identify.” replied Kaleb.
“Good-bye Kaleb.” I said sadly.
“Good-bye Raine.. I’ll be sure to see you again.
