Chapter Four: He looked me in the eyes as I listened to what he said. "So I think you are in grave danger with the other nightmare makers because they want to know what you do to get through the dream catchers," he finished. I nodded slowly, I felt his eyes on me as I began to walk back to my desk. "That's it!? You're not going to worry at all?" he asked me with a pitch of anxiety in his voice. I lifted my eyes slowly after I turned around. Once I met his eyes there was a bit of humor in my voice when I said, "Worry? Why would I need to worry over something so small?" I could tell that my well-being obviously worried him, but if I wasn't worried, there would be no reason for him to. Now if only I could convince him of that. I watched as he came completely inside and shut the door behind him. That made me worry and wonder a bit. He had never come in completely, let alone shut the door. "What's wrong?" I asked him quietly. He leaned against the wall as he responded, "You're worrying me Jaura." I shook my head and said, "It is nothing I can't take care of myself. Besides, I'm not worried." "That is why I'm worried!" he yelled then continued, "If you're not worried than that means you won't realize how the danger you really are in!"

He began to shrink into the shadows. It was even freaking me out a bit, there was something off about them. They seemed stronger than normal. Their eyes were not the normal yellow, but now, all of it a blackish color. "RUN!" I yelled to Alec. He didn't need a push or anything more. He took off without looking back. I began to chase after him, desperate to catch up. And so the chase gave-way. I could hear my heart pounding as I ran, I was sure I even heard Alec's heart too. I watched him carefully as he moved. Watching his every step, counting them even. Then, he disappeared! Where did he go? I began to panic. What to do? Where to go? Should I find him? I almost decided when something hit me on the head. I realized I had stood there too long. They had caught up to me. Soon, everything went black and I couldn't even hear their yells anymore....
