The Power of Dreams Part #2

It was dark inside Gabby and Sierra’s room at 2:30 at night; the windows had the blackout curtains drawn, and there were only a few fairy lights to illuminate the room, which meant we had to watch our step to not step on the little odds and ends on their floor and then join everyone in making a small circle. “Okay let’s do this” Sierra whispered “do you have a spell chosen Bella? It is your book” Sierra finished. “Yea, I thought this one, something about gaining something with a P would be fun, the words are so worn out I can barely read them, I can only read a few letters on some, I can read clear enough the instructions, but the bottom and top of the pages words are so dated, I can barely tell if there were any words there in the first place,” Bella warned. “Well, I doubt it was anything important.” Gabby reassured us all, “But what if it was, oh I don’t know, THE WARNING?!” I rebutted. “Oh please, Hailey, you just read too many books, besides who would leave a warning... totally lame,” Amelia responded. “Yea, and besides it’s all hocus pocus anyway,” Taylor and Camila said at the same time. “Okay fine, fine just don’t say I didn’t warn you,” I said, a little hurt that they didn’t take me seriously, but that’ll be their problem, not mine, even though I’m still going along with this idiocy, so I guess it’s mine as much as it is theirs… uh, I hate myself for going along with this nonsense. “Anyway,” Bella started “let’s read the instructions, first we need ‘a treasure of old’ I’m guessing that means a favorite childhood toy or something, then we’ll need ‘wealth of today’ okay a fairly new treasure, and almost done, ‘a ravens feather and a doves feather’ okay I think I have both in my bookmark collection somewhere, we can use that and then last but not least… ‘A dream’ okay this one I don’t get, are we supposed to sleep or write down a dream we’ve had and mix it up with the rest of the stuff?” Bella finished complexed at the final riddle if you could even call it that. “Give it to me already let me read the whole thing,” I said, Bella reluctantly handed me the book and I read aloud the whole list of things and an incantation at the end that read “Feather of a raven, a feather of a dove, a dream of hope or a dream of love, let it be known to the skies above, the power you get is the power you dreamt.” I chanted then read the rest of the instruction quietly, “okay, it looks like we’re supposed to put all the items in the center of the circle then say the chant 3 times over and... go to sleep, so I guess that explains the last instruction.” I finished. And soon we had everything needed for the spell sitting in the middle of our circle we all linked hands, closed our eyes and started chanting Feather of a raven, feather of a dove, a dream of hope or a dream of love, let it be known to the skies above, the power you get is the power you dreamt. Feather of a raven, the feather of a dove, a dream of hope or a dream of love, let it be known to the skies above, the power you get is the power you dreamt. Feather of a raven, the feather of a dove, a dream of hope or a dream of love, let it be known to the skies above, the power you get is the power you dreamt. At the beginning of the third chant, I started to feel a breeze but all the windows and the door were closed. Near the middle, I could see the light getting brighter thru my eyelids, and at the very end the ‘breeze’ became a strong gust of wind that opened the windows and door and the light became strong as all the lights spontaneously turned on, then off, then on, then off, then on again as the wind continued to mess up our hair, we started to hear bone-chilling howls that made us all huddle together, and as soon as it started, it stopped and we were left in the pitch black with not even the fairy lights to lighten the room, Gabby got up and tried to turn on the lights, the only one that wasn’t scared was Bella who said “Ah, but we are not finished friends what still remains, is to fall into sleep and dream of the night we just had, nigh’ nigh’ don’t let the witches bite” Bella said with an eerie tone about her, gosh that girl could scare the bejeebers out of you. So we did as we were told and got up to go to our rooms, Camila tried to turn on the hall light, with no luck, so we all walked to our rooms with a chill in our hearts in the dark of 3:00 at night, the witching hour…


That night, I had the most wonderful dream despite the scary circumstances. I dreamt that it was basketball tryouts and that none of the guys wanted me on their teams because I was slow (even though I’m like 6 feet tall, what the heck boys?) but then as quick as lightning, I went around the world, being fast enough to even walk on water, collecting a little something from everywhere I stopped, and when I was back in the gym, they didn’t even know what happened, all they knew is one second I only had a basketball under my arm with a too big basketball uniform then FLASH the next I was holding a half-eaten mochi between my teeth, wearing an authentic, navy blue and orange german dirndl instead of the uniform, and a few other random things in my hands. And soon everyone was fighting to have me on my team. Strange that when I was running in my dreams, I felt my legs pumping in real life, and got this, keeping up with the legs in my dream. I wonder what everyone else dreamt that night. Anyway, I liked that dream because I’ve always wanted to have a super speed superpower.
