Alright, no lie, I loved this dream. I wish you all could see into my mind because the colors and scenes I saw were just incredible. This was my dream two nights ago, just didn’t have time to write it up yesterday!
I’m standing on blackness. Above my head is beige. Surrounding me are clouds of black, blue, green, yellow, red, flowing, they are moving so gracefully. I look forward and see a man about 8 feet tall, muscular, cover in robes and armor, a beard down to his chest, and white eyes. There is no one else up here, but me and him. I walk forward and stand about three feet from him.
Deann, I know you, but you do not know me. Women do not get to choose, I choose from what I know about you. But please, talk with me for a little bit.
I look at him with a questionable look on my face, choose what? How do you know me already? I just got here.
I know everyone that steps foot in my choosing hall. The moment your feet hit my floor I see your life. I see you. Women do not get to choose, I choose.
I’m still unsure what you mean, what are you choosing?
He puts his hand up to his heart and a white orb emerges from his robes. The white is swimming around like little fish in the orb. This is you, from what I see, from what I know. And you are blue. The orb changes to blue in the instant he says the word.
I don’t understand where you’re going with this.. He smiles says, don’t worry, and shoves the blue orb into my chest.
I didn’t feel anything, but I’m left standing there with my arm trying to block him from my chest after the orb transfer was already complete. What.. what did you just do?
There are three clans in the world below. Each and every person that gets placed in the world needs to be in a clan before entering… He continues talking about the clan descriptions.
The blue clan is known for being like water. Elegant, but unpredictable. They can jump up onto building tops if they’re standing next to the wall, just like if water were to hit it, the water would go up. No one can every predict which way the blue clan will flow, but they mainly like to stay in one place. They are very wise and do not like to fight.
The red clan is known for bring like fire. Quick spreading, and uncontrollable. They are fast runners, especially if the wind is blowing. They don’t like to stay in one place for long, they are constant migrants across the world and you do not want to stand in their way. They are a fighting clan and known to destroy cities.
The yellow clan is known for being the eldest clan. It was the first clan to settle in the world. For centuries they provided the world with it’s needed nutrients, but they grew tired of the same old days so they created the red and blue clans. The yellow clan is rarely seen, they live below ground in secret areas, and are NOT to be disturbed. If they feel it to be necessary, they will come up from the ground and deal with the issues at hand. They are the true force to be reckoned with.
You can be chosen to be a part of any of the three clans. It all depends on you.
Men of the World
You are ready to go to the world. He says and points to my right. I look in the direction he’s pointing and say, wait, what about the men? You say women do not get to choose, but what about the men?
He says, I knew I made the right choice picking blue clan for you. You’re so inquisitive. Step over to the clouds over here by me, it’ll blend you in and no one will notice you’re there. There’s a man coming now. I can sense it, you’ll get to see for yourself.
I go over to this giant man and I’ve blended in with the clouds. A man enters the end of the hall. He slowly walks up to the giant man.
The Chosen Guardian, I believe I have made my decision.
Herrick, you’ve stepped before me once, and now you are here again. I see your life. I see you. And now you believe to have chosen. I have made my choice long ago and you know the full consequence if you choose differently?
All Herrick says is, yes Guardian. The Chosen Guardian, which I did not realize he had a name, puts his hand up to his heart and another white orb appears from his robe. With two hands under the orb, he holds it out to Herrick. With this orb you may have life or you may have death, but it’s all up to you. What clan have you chosen?
Herrick’s hands are shaking as he raises them and places them on the orb, Chosen Guardian, I believe I am to be… red clan. The clouds begin to thunder, the ground shaking beneath our feet, the orb turns a deep dark red, and The Chosen Guardian shoves the red orb into the mans chest.
You’ve made the correct choice Herrick. I’ve seen red in you the first time I saw you and I still see red in you now. You may enter the world, he points to Herrick’s right. Herrick turns to face the same direction and begins walking until he disappears.
Now that you have seen what happens, Deann, do you have any last questions?
The only question that won’t leave my head, what happens if they choose the wrong clan? He looks at me with stern eyes, the moment the colored orb enters his body, it’ll reject the bond and will explode in his chest. He will not survive, he will not walk this world. The bond is correct if he is still standing the moment I insert it into his chest. Now, there is someone coming, it is time for you to go into the world. Leave.
Yes, Guardian, thank you. I turn to my right and walk until I see a white flash and now I’m here.
I’m falling from the sky, below me I can see the blue clan to the East and the red clan to the West. Very close. I didn’t think they’d be that close to each other. I land on the ground and turn to head East. I walk past a few buildings and in the reflection I see just how much I’ve changed. My clothing is now blue, my hair is blue, my skin is a pale blueish-white. I’m standing their, just looking at myself, I’ve never seen myself like this before and I’m a little taken aback. Hey! What’re you doing here? I look to my left and see a woman head to toe dressed in red. She starts walking towards me, I swear she was just 20 feet away and it took two seconds for her to walk up to me. I’m guessing you didn’t hear me? What’re you doing here? Blue clan is the way, pointing to the East, you’re in red territory. You might want to get moving. I just look at her, flabbergasted, and continue walking East. I hear her scoff behind me and walk away. I didn’t know that would of been so offending, I was leaving?
I finally catch up to someone from the blue clan. His name is Jonathan, he’s been in the world for 7 years, so to them he’s still new. He let’s me know that the red and blue clans have been in a war for years now. The both have very strong powers, blue knowing everything and everything red can throw at them, and red being strong and quick could defeat them in a second. However, their strengths and combated by weaknesses that they can’t get around. Blue can sense what red is going to do before it happens, so they can defend or leave that area before they can get a chance to hit them. Red is quick though, so if they notice blue clan isn’t where they were last, they spread out and usually can catch up quick. But it just goes back and forth, everyone moves around in circles avoiding and chasing each other. Both clans are getting tired of this merry-go-round and want to settle things. And this year is supposed to be the year of peace.
Weeks have gone by, I’ve learned quite a bit by talking with other members of my clan. They have this ‘ultimate plan’ that once and for all will defeat the red clan. It reminds me of what The Chosen Guardian stated. If they feel it necessary, the yellow elders will atop the ground, show their faces, and rid the world of its issues. I just don’t know if that means wipe the world of the clans and their people completely. Or what?
I walk to a building that is located at the line of the red and blue clans territories, jump up, and land on top of the building. Squatting on the top I can see the red clan creating weapons, equipment that can make them jump high since they know we can already do that, and a new machine. The machine makes them glide in the air. Each person can have their own gliding machine if they build enough. We do not have any way of doing that in the blue clan. I begin to get worried that someone from the red team on a gliding machine may see me. I stand up, walk to the edge of the building, look down at the ground, but once more look up towards the red clans territory. And there is a man standing in front of me…
He’s on one of the gliding machines and he’s just looking at me. I can tell his questioning what I’m doing without asking. I’m just leaving now, I didn’t mean to bother you, I just needed a place to think for a moment. Without the other thousands of wise brains back in my clan. He tries to hide back a smirk by looking at the ground, straightens out his face once again and looks at me, no need for an explanation, this is unclaimed territory. I just wanted to look at you. I’ve never seen a blue clan member in person. I blush because DUH, I’m supposed to be the wise all knowing person, but here I am like HEY BOY, I DUNNO, I NOT BOTHER YOU. Ugh. I jump down from the building and land gracefully on the ground. I hear a whistle from above me, it’s the red clan man. Can I see you jump up? I’ve never seen it before. I look up at him and say, maybe tomorrow. He tries to hide his smirk again and glides away.
I go back to the blue territory, but before I reach it that women dressed in red I saw on my first day comes out of the woods and yells, HEY! STOP! I stop dead in my tracks and turn to face her. I don’t know what you’re planning spy, but I saw you watching my clan. It’s unclaimed territory, forbidden by the yellow clan, but just know that I see you. I’ll be watching for you.
I don’t say anything and continue walking into blue territory. Inside blue territory, I look back and see the lady in red shake her head and walk back into the woods.
Months go by, the red man and I continue to meet at the building almost everyday. He looks at the blue clan, while I watch the red. We didn’t talk much when we first met, but now we talk quite a bit. What do we do everyday, our skills, who our leaders are. Finally we talk about the war, why we think it’s happening, and what we can do about it.
One night in blue clan, an elder blue clan member makes the announcement, tomorrow is the day we have all been anticipating. Through our wisdom we will succeed. He walks away and the blue clan begins separating without a word. I instantly run to my spot in the unclaimed territory.
The red man is already there, yours too? He says immediately after I jump up onto the building. Reds clan has made the announcement. Blue clan has made the announcement and now it’s time for
At the break of dawn the clans are up and prepping. Everyone gather their gear and begins moving towards the unclaimed territory. Blue clan begins throwing bombs with little magical creatures at the red clan, red clan throws powerful grenades back. The red clan is moving swiftly around attack members of the blue clan, blue clan anticipates all moves before red makes them.
Everyone is attacking each other, I just walk to my building. Stand at the East wall of the building, I jump up, and sit down. The commotion is flying, jumping, and running around me. But I’m just sitting still watching the red side, waiting.
Just like I anticipated, the red man is here. He’s gliding in front of me on his machine. And I’m just sitting there looking down at my hands. Picturing The Chosen Guardian handing a man their orb. The red man steps off his machine, walks over to me squats down, and puts his hands hovering above mine, as if he were choosing his orb. A huge wind sweeps from West to East and everyone around us freezes. An orb pops up in between our hands. Red coloring is inside the orb on the top, blue is swimming around in the bottom. I haven’t even glanced at the red man, but I know he’s looking at me. I look up at him, his red eyes meet my blue, and the orb flashes a bright white then turns to yellow. We both move our hands apart from the orb, but the orb stays floating. In a circle around us yellow men and women appear.
A red man and a blue woman. Moments of peace counting back within months, we’ve seen the moments, the days, the months, we know your lives, we know you. These are the first moments of peace we have seen in years. We were expecting you. Meshing of the clans have never been done before, but we can sense something new. Outside this world, aliens call it love. Here in this world we have no word for this feeling. Clans do not experience this.. love, it’s destructive and causes more pain than love itself. If we allow you two to mesh, you will be expected to stop this war and bring peace. If you succeed you will survive and you can both live here in this unclaimed territory to rule the clans, but if you fail you shall know your consequences.
I look at them all, they are talking in unison, a beautiful harmony of words. Wait, please don’t say the consequence. I know of what it will be. I don’t want the thought of death as a possibility lingering inside my mind as we try to mesh. Thank you for this opportunity Elders. We will succeed, as long as the red man accepts the proposal.
The red man looks at me, smirks and says, let’s mesh, become one, and fulfill the destiny, which ever it may be, of the Elders.
The orb shatters and instantly the Elders are gone and the clans are back to fighting. He grabs my hands, lifts me off the roof and we both step onto the gliding machine. It turns purple, we both look at each other and smile.
That’s when I woke up. Sweet dreams from WrittenREM.
