the gruop rode with an energy totally new to them. Mana felt it the mosy.
She felt a new need to save Eichiro. She was a bit embarresed to admit, but that
wanted to be with him as much as possible. The harder they peddled,the farther the
mountains seemed to go. Mana's patiance was close to gone. She had the confidence to
fight a whole army,and she would if she had to. The ride was long. Longer then any
other ride she had been on. longer then the leave from New York,or The plane ride. It
was the anticipation that made it seem so long. Mana was very anxious to meet Eichiro
in person. He had high expectations of Mana and her friends,But Mana still felt
Nervous about it. How were they going to get him out? Nonetheless,they continued on.
By the time they actually reached the mountains,the sun had set long ago. They parked
on the side of the road and camped out for the night. Mana lay on her back, looking
at the night sky. She had never seen so many stars in her life. In New York, it was
almost impossible to see even one star. and to see a whole sky full of them was
breathtaking. She tried to stay awake as long as she could, but she soon fell
asleep,the stars still burned in her sight.
Mana is once again in the cell in the mountains,And Eichiro is waiting for her. He
can't help but smile when he sees her. Mana manages a smile and walks toward him.
"hello again,Mana." Mana's face showed a bit of worry.
"Is something wrong?" The way he spoke made Mana's heart thud.
"Not really Eichiro. I am now in the rockies,and i never realised how big they were.
how am i going to find you? These towers of rock are too high to even try to
Eichiro trys to comfort the girl.
"I'll guide you in the morning."
"How can you do that? you're in here. you can't show me."
"You'll see." Mana was confused,But she believed and trusted him. This dream was the
most pleasant Mana had experienced. It was the only dream without haunting guards or
worries. It was just Her and Eichiro. They spent the dream talking to each other, not
caring what the other though. When morning came, Mana was dissapointed. How she
wished her time with him could have lasted longer! With a final goodbye, Mana faded
back into the world of reality.
Mana woke up to find that her companions were still sleeping. She quickly shoke them
awake and told them of her dream.
"...he said,that he'd show me the way to him,but i don't understand how..."
"Maybe he has a flare or something close to that..." Shiki said hopefully. Mana was
about to reply,but her vidion went blurry and she couldn't think straight. Was she
going to pass out? She was able to keep awake,but she couldn't focus on anything. Her
friends gave out cries of alarm,but she couldn't understand a word of it. She starts
to have troubles standing up straight. Mana's thoughts are filled with views of the
mountain ending at a castle jutting out of the mountainface. Mana's vision clears and
she regains her balance.
"What happened? It looked like you were going to pass out!" Sera said with relief and
"I know the way."
"I think...it was Eichiro." Mana smiled confidently at the mountains,in the direction
she was being showed. she felt like she had explored the mountains 100 times over,as
she now knew the way. How Eichiro did it, Mana didn't know,but she didn't care about
that now. She starts to walk into the forest on the mountains.
"Are you coming? Leave the bikes,we can come back for them if we hide them!" she
called back to her friends.
They had been treking for hours,and everyone seemed to think they were going in
circles. everyone exept Mana. She led the group as if she lived there. When the
castle was in sight,it was Noon. It didn't look as majestic on the outside as it did
on the inside. that was probably for camoflage. as they sat down for lunch,Mana
couldn't stop thinking about Eichiro. Was his personality and kindness for impressing
her? if it was, it was working. As she ate, she thought of different plans in hopes
of finding one that worked. There was no stopping them now!
