A Strange Dream

I open my eyes and find myself on a beach. I look at the clear blue sky, not a cloud in sight. I then look to the water. It's a beautiful shade of blue and is very clean. I close my eyes and listen to the waves crashing along the shore. I slowly walk to the water, eyes still shut. The sand is warm on my bare feet, but not warm enough to burn. I come to a stop once my feet are fully submerged in the water. It's cool to the touch and feels good on my skin. A slight breeze comes from the direction of the water. Slowly, I open my eyes and look to the water. My eyes widen at what I see ahead of me.

A little farther from the shore, a man stands on the water. Not in the water, but on top of it. For awhile we only stare at each other. He's quite pale and has dark blue hair that reaches halfway to his shoulders. Some of it slightly covers his left eye, which is the same shade of blue as his hair. He's wearing a white t-shirt underneath a light blue jacket. He's also wearing baggy jeans and has on white tennis shoes.

He is observing me curiously with his deep blue eyes. Once he's done observing me, he begins to walk forward. I watch cautiously, ready to run at any moment. As he gets closer, he stops about three feet away from me. He looks around the beach and then speaks.

"How do you like the beach?" he asks, still looking around. I'm confused by the question and wonder who he is. He turns and looks at me expectedly. After a few moments I am able to sputter out an answer.

"Oh…it's…um…very peaceful. And the water is beautiful. Is it the ocean?" I ask after answering his question. He smiles with delight, clearly pleased with my answer.

"Yes, it is the ocean," he says, still smiling. I give a small smile back as he moves closer to me. I look down at his feet, which are still standing atop the water.

"Excuse me for asking, but how are you doing that?" I ask pointing at his feet. His smile is replaced by a look of confusion at the question. He looks at his feet and then looks at mine, which are still submerged in the water. He looks back at me and smiles in understanding.

"Well you see, I am the Demon King of Water. I can control water, which is why I am able to walk on water as you see now," he says cheerily. My eyes widen at his answer.

"A-A demon king?" I ask in shock.

"Yes. I am Egyn, Demon King of Water. It is a pleasure to finally meet you in person Cecilia Evans," he says with a slight bow. I look at him in surprise, not sure what to say. He looks at me, waiting for me to say something. Finally I'm able to choke out a reply.

"H-How do you know my name?" I ask nervously.

"I've been waiting to meet you for a very long time, Cecilia," he answers, unfazed by the question. "I've been watching you for quite some time, waiting for the right moment to reveal myself to you." Before he can go on, a dull beeping resonates through the beach as it begins to fade away. He looks around at the fading beach and then back at me, slight irritation showing on his face.

"We will have to continue this another time I suppose," he sighs. "Goodbye my dear Cecilia," he says before fading away along with the rest of the beach. I stand in the dark as the beeping becomes louder and louder. Finally, it becomes too much for me to handle.

Slowly, my eyes open and I hit my alarm clock with a groan. I slowly slide up into a sitting position on my bed. I look around my room, the dream slowly fading from my memory.

"Damn, that was a weird dream," I say and get up to get ready for school.
