The story so far:
Morgan was walking home, he was fairly confident about a lot of things, one being that the dreaming was getting a lot more interesting these days, and that he couldn't wait till he became exhausted from the days events and fall asleep. Another was that it was not always a fun thing to walk home by himself. He sometimes wished he had someone to talk to. As he walked down the usual road, he felt as though something were touching him on the head, turning him away from his destination.
“Knock it off Deom. I'm not interested, we're going to get her brother back, the woman you can keep. I have no interest in her anymore. Trust me on this one.” Morgan said as he shook his head hard to the left and continued on his way home.
‘How did you know I was watching you human? And why do you not have any interest in her? Is she not beautiful? Attractive even?’ The Deom made itself visible to morgan and walked beside him, curious as to his reaction.
“It's not that, she's all those things. I just don't want to deal with the looks she gives me… That's all.” The man said with slight sadness in his heart.
‘But people will start to talk, human. They will blame you for her disappearance, accuse you of kidnapping, blame you, even hate you! You know what we want, and you know how to give it to us. She holds no real interest for us. So why not come and get her?' The Deom pressed, its words laced with intentions Morgan knew all too well.
Morgan was used to this kind of entertainment, he always daydreamed whenever he got bored or put in situations where things were out of his control. He knew a lot about the Deom more then he let on, and he had to keep the secret from Sarah for as long as possible.
“Like I said, I'm not interested in her. I'll come and get her and Sarah's brother, but as for the woman in question, I'm only getting her to keep things calm. I'm assuming that you're the sister to Nordafet then?” Morgan exclaimed in questioning tones.
‘How did you know?’ The creature asked, as there were no real defining male or female traits in Deom.
“Easy, only a female would use past heartbreaks to get results.” Morgan sneered.
‘Don't leave us guys out as well Morgan. Long time no see, looking healthy as always… I can change that!’ a second voice said as needles peirced his arm and shot through the other side, sending a racking pain through Morgan's arm. nordafets sister laughing beside the human as he grimaced in pain.
“Sorry, not today Nord. Just tell me what I need to do to get everything straightened out.” when there was no further answer, Morgan decided that there was more to this treasure then the two Deom were letting onto. ”I'll get to the bottom of this. I swear it.”
Sarah had just gotten through finishing her paper and had briefly entered the car, still wondering what tonight's dreams would bring. “More answers to question I didn't ask. hrm... I wonder what Morgans doing about now. Probably still walking home at this time.” All of a sudden she heard a voice enter the conversation with herself. “I thought I told you to stay away from him Sarah!” She jumped in her seat and looked into the rear view mirror to see Aneeh in the backseat with a juice box. “Hi…um Aneeh?” “Yes?” The small woman in the back seat asked, her dark eyes matching saras. “how..come your in my car?” aneeh smiled a smile which shown off her teeth. “I squeezedd in through the tailpipe, worked my way into the airconditioner and popped out the vents.” “ah… that explains why the covers on the floor. so… why aree you telling me to stay away from morgan? hes not dangerous you know? and we have tis conversation about every couple of days.” aneeh drank some more from the jiuce box. “well you know what happened between him and kim right?” “well theres not going to be a repeat of that. ever, look we tlaked about it and we agreed that were just friends and thats it. weve both been through our own things and hes over her, and even though he likes me, hes not going to push it any further.”
aneeh closed her eyes half way and glared at sara, “shes been missing for the past couple of days, the office has beeen getting calls about her where abouts, and we have suspusion that hes responsible.” sara reached back, layed a hand on aneeh and smacked her. “look, i dont want to hewar you blaming him for anything ever again. unless he comes out and says it, then just knock it off. hes been through hell and back.”
aneeh replied with slight of hand. “oh really then? then what happened to your brother? how do you know hes not behind that as well? the signs are all there sara. the way he looks at you-” “thats because hes my friend aneeh. my FRIEND.” “-or what about the songs he writes?” sara thought about kicking her out the window shield. “he asked permission to use me as his inspiration aneeh and told me that some of them would get a little deep.” “well what about the blogs he writes?” sara rolled her eyes and thought for a moment whether or not she would fit back into the now broken air conditioning vent. “what about them? they are entertaining to read. some of them are actualy deep and thoughtfull, although they can get a little depressing from time to time.” aneeh saw for a moment that she was thinking of something else and had enough of her blame game for one day. “did you get those reports done? the ones for the grey day trip?” aneeh hissed slightly and nodded slowly. “yeah i got them in yesterday. everything should be taken care of, so there not really any worry. but think about what i said here sara. theres something not quite right about that man.” with that, she open the passenger door and left. that night on the way home, sara was thinking of reasons to tell thre parents why mike hadnt been home in over two weeks. when she looked at the time, she noticed it was around 10:30 pm, “damn… tonight was fettichini alfredo and i was supposed to help make the sauce. oh well, i might as well flip some on some tunes.” as she reached for the knob she felt a slight vibration coming from the radio as it clicked on and static blared out of the speakers. “we are the ……. we…. be watching you and …. gan. we…. get…. the treasure that you and…. have….. we have your brother…. his love…. we will be waiting.” saras eyes teared up a bit as the static cleared up and a charming yet smokey voice spoke the words. “there is much that we must discuss, you and i. just us girls… i will be waiting for you in the land of dreams.” “oh shut up. im not interested, i just want my brother back, and maybe morgan love as well…. although hes already told you hes not interested right?” the voice cooed softly as it thought of another answer. “yes… he did manage that. but i talked him into rescuing her. as for your brother, hes safe here with us.”
“yes… he did manage that. but i talked him into rescuing her. as for your brother, hes safe here with us.” “really? what proof do i have that he will remain safe?” there was radio silence and all she could hear was more static unitl at last she heard mikes voice.
“sara? im here.. and im safe, that got kim all strung up in a web and shes breathing from what i can tell. but you better come here and get us out of here real quick. theyve got something bad planned, i can only here bits and peices of it but they want you and morgan to give them your treasurOOF!” more radio silence and then she heard a females voice in the distance. “WHERE AM I? WHO ARE YOU TWO? more importantly, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU? SOME, ANY ONE, PLEASE HELP ME!” she knew that voice voice as did morgan, and she could only listen in silence as the please continued and the laughter boomed louder until the other voices were drowned out, then nothing but static again. “we will be waiting for you. come prepared, or they will both lose licence of life. you have exactly one month to reach us in the realm of dreams, under the blood red moon, next to the tree that talks, in the kingdom of the deom. we look forward to your hastened arrival, ha, ha, ha….”
sara panicked at the thought of losing her brother, and did the only thing she could do in times of stress. she uttered a string of swear words for the next fifteen minutes which caused the paint on the cars surrounding her to crack and peel off. she took slight notice of this, “wow… i did not know i could do that. might come in handy for when i want to paint my room a different color. i have to find morgan, and get all the information i can about the deom. he should be still walking home at this point. she drove back up to the college and then down the road he usualy took when going home, after a couple of streets she began to lose hope of finding him, but then caught sight of a familiar gigbag attached to a tall man walking towards her direction. he looked up and waved non chalantly and continued on. she stopped the car suddenly and honked at him. “you need a ride? dont you have a test coming up or something close to it?” morgan nodded slowly and then got into the car, wondering if the stars had allighned or something more mysterios. “am… i in trouble?” “no…and yes. its the deom, nordafet and credion, they have mike and kim, and unless we give them our treasure, they die in a month.” morgan took this in for a while and then yawned. “so you want to know what i know about the deom right? man thats a long walk. i never really notice it till i get a ride. well shall we then? lets go to your place and ill explain everything. my place first, need to feed the horses.”
they drove over to morgans and he quickly climbed out the window, onto the cars roof, and jumped the fence. “keep the motor running, this shouldnt take long.” fifteen minutes later, he was back in the car and the horses were happy, albight a little annoyed that they didnt get carrots today. “how are the horses?” she asked casualy, “there fat and happy, lets get going, we have a lot to discuss andl ittle time to discuss it in.” as they drove to sara’s house, morgan talked about the deom, how they were formed, who created the two in particular, and how they helped him get over kim. “nightmares.” “what? they gave me nightmares, designed to turn me away from her. they worked didnt they?” “true. but why nightmares?” ” i told them to do it that way.” “so tell me agian who created those two deoms and what they look like? i must have skipped that part.” morgan stalled for a minute before answering, giving very little thought to the consiquenses. “i did, by accident, i know i told you they were a race, they arent. nordafet and credion are the only two deom in existence.
