Mana sat in her TA class,watching the second hand on the clock as it ticks
in a continuous circle. Less then a minute left until summber break started. she paid
no attention to the class today. the only thing on her mind was the strange boy in
her dreams. during the coarse of the day, she tryd several times to remeber his
appearence and sketch it,but failed each time. A number of questions also flew
through her head.what is he going to say tonight?what do his words mean? does he
really exist? they never ended. the school bell rings. the echo's of students
whooping and cheering go through the school. Mana finds herself at her
locker,cleaning it out. Shiki stands cleaning her locker out as well,as they were
next to each other.
" how about a sleepover at the orphanage? i'll make sure they treat you nice."
"that sounds like fun!"
"good,we'll tell Sera when we see her."
They started to board the bus when Sera caught up with them,and they all climbed to
"Summer is here! Finally!" Shiki exclaims as she lays back in her seat.
"Sera,Shiki is coming with us to the orphanage for a sleepover."
"Oh boy! This is going to be fun!"
The girls arrived at the orphanage,they went right to fun,doing everything they
could. by the time they fell asleep it was almost midnight. They didn't even bother
to put PJ's on as they all slept peacefully.
Mana is spinning again,entering the world of dreams. she finds herself in the cell
again.the cell is empty,but soon,the door flings open, and the yound teen is thrown
in,brutally beaten with fresh cuts and bruises. He struggled to get up.
Instinctivly,Mana helped him up. At first he was suprised someone was in the cell
helping him,but his face calmed as he saw who is was.
"Oh,Mana Futabatei,you're back."
"please,just call me Mana." The boy smiles for the first time,but it fades slowly.
"Why won't you try to rescue me? I'm desperate!"
"I'm dreaming right now! i don't even know if you're real!"
"trust me, I do exist."
"if you're real will you at least tell me where we-uh, i mean- you are?"
The prisoner paused before he continued.
"I am on the border of the United States and Canada, on the mountain range known as
the rocky mountains."
Mana's face went into pure shock.
"WHAT?? the rockies??" Mana felt faint. The rocky mountains? That mountain range is
so far from new york...
" I can see you're suprise. Indeed, i am far from you.But that is no reason not to
"what do I get if I succeed?"
"Trust me, it will be beyond your wildest dreams." His face slipped into a small
smile,but it quickly faded.
"Mana,you're fading!" Mana looked down at herself. indeed she was translucent.
"Darn! I must be waking up! quick,what's your name?" Mana cries in a desperate voice.
He hesitated for a split second.
"Eichiro! My name is Eichiro!" Mana heard the name just in time. before long, she had
faded from sight.
Mana woke up to the clap of thunder and lightning. It was raining outside. Sera and
Shiki were still sleeping. It was on a night like this that she came to the
This isn't fair! Mana had enough of these dreams. She was going to the
mountains to find Eichiro! She must have been crazy, but she packed her knapsack with
everything she would need and what she could bring. The last thing she packed was her
flute. She was careful not to wake her two friends up as she slipped her shoes on and
ran out of the orphanage slamming the door. She ran out in the drentched streets
heading for the edge of the city.
'''Mana!!''' She reconized the voices only too well. before long,Sera and Shiki were
at her either side.
"Don't try to stop me! I have to find that boy!" Mana's speed increses. Sera called
to her over the rain.
"We're not trying to stop you! We're going with you!!"
"What?? i thought you didn't believe me!"
"The boy-He came to us in our dreams last night! we believe you now Mana! We're with
you whatever you choose!"
"Thanks you two! you are the best BFFs a girl could ever have!"
what will become of these three? will they make it to the rocky mountains? will they
