13_goddess in dreamland

"Hello Andriea," a sweet gentle voice said. I whirled around to see myself in a meadow full with sweet smelling flowers and freshness of grass.

A beautiful woman with black hair adorned with a crown of flowers sat at the middle of it smiling at me, beckoning me to come closer to her. I slowly walked my way toward her. I don't know her but I feel drawn to her.

"Who are you?"

"My child, you grew up so beautiful," she stood up placing a crown of wild flowers on my head.

I looked at her curiously. I don't feel threatened at her, more like reverence. She's so beautiful and elegant in her white flowy dress.

"Where am I? Who are you?" I repeated my question.

"This my dear child, is my meadow. You are dreaming right now. This is the only way I can communicate with you." She led me to sit beside her at the blanket she had been sitting on.

"Ohh, you're a goddess. But which goddess are you?" I inquired at her.

"I'm Nike, my precious child. Don't you remember me from all of your childhood dreams. I always played with you when you were a baby." She laughed at me. Twirling my hair in her hands.

"No, I don't." I shook my head. Disappointment flooding my chest.

"Why are you visiting me now?" I busied myself in making a flower pendant. Trying to pick my brain and see if I can remember the dreams she is talking about. She touched my temple and whispered something under her breath.

"Someone blocked your memories of me. They thought I was dangerous to you. Why would they think that?" She frowned producing a deep line in her forehead. I shrugged my shoulders.

"I don't know. Can you undo the spell?" I offered her the flower pendant that I was doing.

"I can but I won't." I stared at her. I am getting confused by the minute. If she was my goddess, then she would be powerful enough to lift the spell.

"Why won’t you?” I asked her.

"You have to find out for yourself my dear child. I cannot meddle on such things but I can do something about who will help you." She smiled at me. The love in her eyes was evident. My stomach churned, is this it? Am I finally knowing who my bonded is?

"And who is that? Is it my bonded?" I asked sheepishly. Excitement running through my body.

"Yes but I cannot tell you who he is exactly. The other gods forbid it but I can help you figure it out." She winked at me conspiratorially.

"Well, that's no fair. Why would they let you tell others but not me?" I whined. Surely, the goddess wouldn’t mind my childish attitude, after all, she’s not telling me everything.

"Because they know of the future and what will happen if I do tell you."

I am getting confused at this conversation as we go on. I am starting to get the feeling that she can't meddle in my life for some reason.

"He will be there in the time that you need him the most. Fighting along side you. Offering his life to make sure you live. He will devote his life protecting you and loving you more than he loves himself. You will lose him for a bit but your love for him will bring him home back to you. Beware of the enemy, they will do everything in their power to separate you and kill you both. You need to find him as fast as you can, starting tomorrow or you might lose him before he can even realize that you are his bonded."

"Well, that was cryptic and intense. Why would someone want to kill us?" Anger laced my tone.

I feel the need to protect him even though I don't know him yet. What kind of stupid nonsense is this?

"Because you are my blood. You are my most powerful descendant to ever grace Horae. If the two of you bonds, your powers will.....," she vanished.

I whirled around looking for her but she just vanished out of thin air. Then like a ghost she appeared in front of me again.

"I don't have much time, I'm losing my connection to you. The gods have found out what I'm doing. You have to unlock your memories Andrieya. The power that you need is inside you. Find him. Look for a lightning above his chest. The wheel is set in motion, you have to hurry Andrieya. Be safe," she started to fade away.

"Will I ever get to see you again?" I moved closer to her, trying to grab a hold of her fading hand.

"I'll try to find a way. Remember that I am always with you." She smiled at me and completely faded away.

“Wait! Please don’t go yet. I have to ask you so many things,” I shouted at her fading figure.

I woke up with a jolt. Looking around in panic, reminding myself that I am in Fyndria. Then there was a searing pain in my chest. I yanked my nightgown exposing myself in a cool night air. A print of moon was seared unto my flesh right above my left breast near my heart. I doubled over my bed. I felt like my heart was being squeezed in my chest. I cannot breath and I started seeing white dots on my vision. I blacked out after that.
