Bea had enjoyed spending her spring semester studying at a university in England. She got to spend time with her half-brothers and their families. It was crazy but ultimately amazing how their family had come together out of such an unpleasant situation. Her semester was over though and now she was in Norway.
Spending time with Jakob's family had been the most interesting part of being here for the summer. He was not close to them and it showed. She related to it so much. At the same time, she was having a blast spending time at the cabin with his friends. She was getting to see so many different parts of him.
She, well they, kept insisting they were just friends but she had never felt this way about just a friend. And she was going home next week and Jakob was not. He had gotten a job with the Wizardthing and would be staying in Norway. Norway was a lot farther from Kansas than Canada. Bea was getting anxious about it. She liked having him on the same continent.
The sound of Jakob's breathing filled the room as she drifted off to sleep in the large, fluffy bed. Jakob, despite her protestations that it was unnecessary, was sleeping on the floor with a sleeping bag in the room they were sharing. Her sleep was restless and not long after she had fallen into a deep sleep she woke up, a blood-curdling, crying scream escaping from her.
"No no please no," she cried, her dream infecting her reality as she shook with fear.
