Chapter 10 Talent
When I woke up, I had a headache. It was so painful that I didn’t know if I can go to school and I didn’t. I told Megan and Rose to tell Professor Dovey that I can’t go to school today and to just give the assignments to them. I also didn’t get to go to breakfast and lunch. So the fairies just brought the basket of food to my room. For 3 days my head hurts so much that I just stayed on my bed not moving. On the fourth day, I felt a bit better but I still didn’t go to school cause I thought I heard someone but everyone is in class. So I thought I was going crazy. On the fifth day, I was certain that I was crazy. I keep on hearing a lot of voices in my head. Some of them sound like Gaby’s, Rose’s even Professor Dovey’s. In lunch, I couldn’t stand it. So I freshened up myself and tried to find Professor Dovey or any other teacher. When I tried to stand, I fell. I forgot that I didn’t use my legs for 4 days. I decided to call Joy but my head still hurts so much and I keep hearing voices that I can’t focus on whistling for her. “I must walk or crawl if I have to.” So I opened the door and tried to walk. I just held on the rail of the stairs and I just sticked to the wall for support. While walking, I kept on screaming in my head, “Help, help.”
Then a girl with dark brown eyes and straight, beautiful, black hair came to me. “Hi, I’m Teresa. You were shouting for help right?”
“Um, not really. I mean I was but only in my mind.” Then I fell cause my head hurts so much now.
“Wait you’re Heart. I saw you in Yuba’s class that day when you lit up your finger. I heard that you were sick. Where are you going?”
“To Professor Dovey. Maybe she knows why I hear everyone in my head and why it hurts so bad.” She helped me and we walked going to Professor Dovey. We walked and walked then some rays of sunlight hit my eyes, I looked up and I saw that we were going outside. “Why are we going outside?”
“This is the fastest way to her office.” Then she almost dropped me but she held on, “Oh. You’re getting a bit heavy. Maybe you should go by the wall for support like what you were doing earlier.”
“Good idea. Sorry also.”
“You could be with your friends but you decided to help me. Ouch!”
“It’s fine. But you should not talk right now just try to walk.” I walked and walked until I think I dropped. I haven’t slept for 3 days because of my head. I was glad that I would be able to sleep right now. Then I remembered Teresa and that she’s having a hard time right now. I should wake up but I can’t wake up anymore.
When I woke up, I saw that I was in my room with Professor Dovey, Megan, Rose, Laurence, Eric and Teresa. “She’s awake,” I didn’t know who said that but I think it could have been Megan. I tried to sit down but my head still hurts so I just decided to lie down. “How are you?” asked Professor Dovey.
“My head still hurts.”
“My dear, your talent came.”
“What? What’s my talent?”
“I don’t know yet but it includes something about your mind. Didn’t you say that you could hear thoughts?”
“I said that I heard voices.”
“The voices that you hear are people’s thoughts. Your talent came to you like a big wave. It was supposed to come little by little. So you need to rest some more and go to school when you don’t feel anything in your head.”
“Totally anything. I mean if I don’t feel anything.”
“Yes. You should feel at least nothing in your head.”
“How long should I be resting?”
“Maybe just another week.”
“How will I get to control my talent?”
“You need to sleep again dear. You worry about that when you feel better. You need to sleep for an entire week.”
“An entire week! How will I get to sleep that long?”
“I will put a spell that will make you sleep. You need to rest. Sweet dreams.” Before I could speak, she said a spell that I couldn’t understand, then I was out like a light.
I dreamt about that Christmas vacation in Eric’s kingdom. I was 6 and he was 7. We were going skating with our friends but the both of us didn’t know how to skate. I tried to skate with my friends teaching me while his friends also taught him. We weren’t that close before but that was the day that started this friendship. I was very nervous around boys so I’m always with my friends that are girls while he is with the boys. When our friends decided to rest, I decided to practice since I can already keep my balance, I want to be able to glide. It was just me and Eric, we just smiled whenever we pass each other. Then I fell and I can’t get up, he helped me, that was the first time I held his hand. He seemed to have gotten the hang of it. “How did you get to learn that fast?”
“I don’t know. I just did,” then he glided away.
“Wait,” I told him. “Can you teach me?”
“Uh. Sure,” then he helped me skate. Sometimes we fell and we laughed so hard. Then while he was skating, he fell into the cold water. He was asking for help, I went to him and tried to help him. While I was trying to help him, I was slipping into the water. I finally got to pull him out of the water but a got a deep wound while doing it. He was frozen, so I took off his sweater and put mine in. I was freezing but I was determined to save him. I was looking for our friends but it seemed like that they were already inside the castle. I only saw his sister and 2 guards looking for us. When she saw me, she immediately took off her sweater and put it on Eric. “What happened?”
“He fell while he was skating.” Then we went inside the castle, everybody’s attention was in Eric’s that nobody noticed me as I walked going to my room. I looked at the wound at my right shoulder and I saw that it was so deep and that it was bleeding. I opened the window and took some ice to put on my shoulder and I also put on a blanket on me so that nobody will see the wound. It felt good but I kept on getting ice because it kept melting since I’m also trying to warm myself by the fire. Since my uncle was a doctor, I know what to do in these situations. I cleaned my wound and took a coal from the fire and blowed on it until it was the type of temperature that I can handle. I put it on my shoulder so that my wound wouldn’t get infected. It didn’t feel good but I just breathed knowing that this is for my own good. Then I saw the door open, I threw the coal cause if it was my mom or my dad they’ll be overreacting. But I saw that it was Eric, he was holding cups of hot chocolate. I’m already sweating but I kindly accepted it. He went to me and said, “Thank you for saving me.”
“Your welcome,” I said smiling. Since it was just him, I decided to go back to my healing process. I took another coal, since the other one must already be cold, and blowed on it. Then I put it on my shoulder without him noticing it.
“Can I stay and we can just talk?”
“Ok,” I said while breathing.
“Let’s start fresh. I’m Eric,” he said while holding out his hand for mine. My left hand was occupied and my right arm could hurt. I took out my left hand and shook his hand. When I shook his hand he saw that it was filled with blood. Then he held my shoulders, “What happened?”
“OW!” Then I took off the blanket for him to see the wound. “I had it while I was trying to take you out of the water.” He was shocked.
“Don’t worry I have everything under control.” I showed him the coal and I realized that it was already cold. I took another one from the fire, blowed on it and put it on my shoulder.
“Do you have a high tolerance of pain?,” he asked while looking at my shoulder.
“Yes. Well physically not emotionally.” Then my dream went like that, me and Eric talking, having fun, laughing. All the good times I’ve had with him. It’s like the bad times never happened.
That’s chapter 10, I hope that you enjoyed it. The next chapter would be in Eric’s point of view (POV) cause while Heart is having a hard time with her head, Eric is having a hard time with Alyssa. Thanks to @megannnyap, @peppy, @bookworm15 and @athene for letting me use their characters.
