Kellen Mormont
A dream is a wish
Sun Nov 13, 2016 12:23

”Do you remember what I told you?” Farrah spoke softly, gazing into Kellen’s eyes in a way he’d never seen anyone else look at him. Wait...was she speaking elvish?

“You said you’d bind yourself to me, forsaking the immortal life of your people.” He replied, his voice strangely confident as he reached out to touch the Evenstar necklace that hung around her neck.

“And to that I hold. I would rather share one lifetime with you, than face all the ages of this world alone. I choose a mortal life.” She replied, as he looked down to see that he was now holding the necklace that she was wearing only moments before.

“You cannot give me this.”

“It is mine to give to whom I will, like my heart.” Farrah said, closing Kellen’s hand around the necklace and leaning closer to him. His heart was racing with anticipation. He could almost feel her breath on his face, but it turned out only to be a breeze.

He was running now, and her hand was clasped tightly in his as they ran along the ocean shore. It looked familiar, but he couldn’t quite place it. Suddenly, a man appeared in front of them, seemingly out of nowhere. The man looked very much like Kellen...which was a bit weird. As they drew closer, he realized he was actually looking at himself.

“Alright, both of you, answer me this.” Farrah demanded, stepping between the two of them. “When I last stood on this beach, on the worst day of my life, what was the last thing you said to me? Go on, say it?”

“I said, Farrah Welsh.” Real Kellen said, almost as if he were remembering.

“Yeah, and how was that sentence going to end?” She asked, looking to him with sadness in her eyes.

“Does it need saying?” Real Kellen asked, suddenly feeling a lump rise in his throat.

“And you, Kellen? What was the end of that sentence.” She inquired of the other Kellen. He leaned in and whispered something, and before Real Kellen could say anything, Farrah leapt into his arms and was about to kiss him when he found himself falling.

Falling, falling, and then rolling? He was rolling down a hill, and the only thing he could think of to yell was “As you wish!” That seemed a little inappropriate given the circumstances. Once he reached the bottom of the hill, he rolled on to his side and saw Farrah lying beside him.

“I told you I would always come for you, why didn’t you wait for me?” Kellen asked, as he brushed some of Farrah’s super soft hair back from her face. His heart pounding against his ribcage as his fingers lightly caressed her skin.

“Well, you were dead.” She replied, looking back at him with that same look in her eye.

“Death cannot stop true love, all it can do is delay it for a while.” Adrenaline, anticipation, whatever it was, this position caused a weird stirring in his stomach.

“I will never doubt again.” Farrah said, her face only inches from his own.

“There will never be a need.” Kellen said softly, closing the distance between them, and as their lips met...fireworks.

The Aladren blinked as his eyes opened. Of course it had all been a dream. Farrah, to his knowledge, didn’t speak Elvish. Plus, his body felt...weird. His heart was still beating fast, and he couldn’t quite shake the idea of kissing his friend out of his head. Something definitely wasn’t right. He peered through the darkness of the shared room, and it appeared that Conrad was still asleep. At least he seemed to be anyway. Maybe if he just went and splashed some water on his face, he’d feel better.

Kellen sat up and swung his legs over the edge of the bed, and as he searched the floor for his slippers, it dawned upon him. The young wizard sighed and clapped his hand over his eyes. Shaking his head, he tried to think of anything other than Farrah and her lips. It wasn’t long before anxiety brain kicked in, and while it helped mellow his feelings, it began to raise other concerns. He was aware that he was approaching that age when things would start to change, but this? This wasn’t something that he wanted to become an ongoing problem. How was he supposed to be around Farrah and not think about kissing her? Was he supposed to just not be friends with her? That wasn’t going to happen. And what if it wasn’t just Farrah that elicited this reaction from him?

Feelings sucked, Kellen decided. That, and that all boy boarding school his dad wanted to send him to was presently sounding really great.
