"I have this bad habit." I tell him.
"Oh, really? And what is this bad habit of yours?"
"I daydream. A lot. It makes everything difficult. I can never focus. It's like my head is permanently in the clouds."
He smiles, putting his guitar down. "There's nothing wrong with that."
I settle my back to his chest, his chin on my shoulder and our fingers laced. "I dream that I'm in Egypt walking by the Nile...or catching fireflies on a hot, summer night. I dream of swimming with a dolphin and singing underneath a meteor shower."
He kisses the crook of my neck. "Sounds like fun."
I chuckle. "It is! But that's not the point."
"I daydream, too. Horrible habit. All about you. Seeing your smile after a long day, listening to you sing along as I play the guitar or piano. S'all you."

Trying to get through to you is like trying to walk through a brick wall. You stand there with your cold shoulder and sneer at me, the venom spewing from your lips unlike anything I'd ever seen from you. I've been trying to understand what I said or did that pissed you off, but my mind comes up blank each time. We use to be so close, I just can't grasp how far apart we've fallen. I know time changes all, but I never expected it to change the relationship between you and I. Maybe I was too hopeful? Maybe I had too much faith in the fact that [I thought] you loved me as much as I love[d] you?
I communicate better with ghosts through white noise than I do with you nowadays. I've been watching our favorite movie on repeat and I fall asleep swaying to our song.

CHANGE OF HEART
It was a warm Tuesday morning at Kadic, children running back and forth from class as to prepare for finals the next day. The clouds loomed overhead, shedding an ominous feeling onto the campus.
Class had gone by slowly for Jeremy. Ever since he woke up, he was anxiously awaiting a chance to sneak away from reality and hide in the darkened laboratory where he would work to figure out the origins of the mysterious protocol and what secrets it holds.
After Geometry, Jeremy had gone into his dorm room to drop off his books before leaving for the factory. On his way out of the room, he came across Aelita. What was she doing in the Boys Dormitories?
Aelita? he called to her.
Hey, Jeremy, she smiled.
They walked closer and stood facing one another for a few minutes until Aelita broke the silence.
Dominic told me about what you said to him last night, Aelita mumbled.

Jeremy had lied in his bed with energetic eyes, thinking of all the possible ways the protocol could have failed once more. Not only that, but he was thinking about the mysterious lifeform protocol he came across on the supercomputer. He couldnt help but continuously ask himself where the protocol had come from.
In all his time working on the supercomputer, he never once saw that protocol. Maybe he had just overlooked it? No. Impossible. Jeremy wasnt the kind of person to miss a single detailespecially when it came to the supercomputer, Lyoko, or even XANA. However, there was also the possibility that maybe XANA had implanted the protocol into the supercomputer to confuse them. During the activated tower, XANA had seemed to accomplish many things.

Aelita, sitting next to the elevator doors, could have headed for the activated tower sooner. Jeremy, refusing to move from his current position in the lifted chair, stared blankly at the computer screen with his spectacles gradually inching down the bridge of his clammy noise.

Not knowing what events they had triggered, Yumi, Ulrich and Odd awaited a call of either good or bad news.
As they hoped, Yumis mobile began to ring. She searched her pockets, Odd spotting the phone lying on the decaying ground in front of the control panel. She ran to it and read the caller ID aloud. It was Aelita, and her heart began to race as she anxiously answered the call.

As the noon sun shined down on the green campus of Kadic Academy, the students poured into the open as the bell rang. It was a warm Friday afternoon and everyone couldnt wait for the weekend to come around. Walking towards their dorm rooms, students laughed and told jokes as they headed for their destinations.
In a small blue car nearing the campus entrance sat a young man by the name of Dominic. With his sister next to him in the drivers seat, he watched out the window in anguish as everyone he passed wore a smile proudly on their face. Dominic couldnt remember the last time he had a smile on his face. Not since he was very young, he imagined.
Dominic Trotter had a brutal childhood. Growing up, he couldnt remember a day that he wasnt beaten. His parents were abusive; his mom refused of how Dominic lived his life and the choices he made and his father was a drunk. If he made a mistake, he would take a clout to the shoulde

In the Girls Dormitory, Aelita was resting underneath silk blankets, looking through squinted eyes at the sunlight that brushed past her curtains and shown on her bedroom door. She sat up and yawned, stretching as she swung her legs over the side of her bed. Resting her feet on the plush carpet, she looked out the window at the naturally blue sky. She never once, while being trapped on Lyoko, imagined that she would see the skies of Earth again.

Stepping into the bedroom before him, Dominic examined the semi-bare walls with both shock and relief. He figured hed see more than he was seeing now, but at the same time was glad that there wasnt a man-eating tiger behind the door awaiting any intruders. The only thing hanging was a modified portrait of Albert Einstein which Dominic found somewhat humorous. There had been some changes in the room recently, he could tell. The carpet had trails going in different directions. He figured that since Jeremy was the only one that used to live in this room, there had been some rearrangements as to make room for a second bed. Against the back wall sat a dormant computer, the screen blank and no sound coming from the tower resting next to it on the desk. He figured that what Delmas said about Jeremy being a smart kid was probably true, but then there was that thing that Jim said

She had been like this ever since Yumi stormed off after Jeremy earlier today, except now the teardrops on her silk blankets were almost completely dry. What had she done that angered Jeremy so? Maybe he thought that she was purposely trying to make him jealous? Or maybe it was something she had no control over? Either way, the memorable events replayed in her mind like a skipping record player, and like it or not she could not remove the needle.
Through all her depression, Aelita heard a knock on the door. She refused to lift her head, rather, she didnt move at all. She simply called out, Who is it? with an upsetting tone and waited for a reply. Right now she didnt really care who was behind the door, for no one could remove the pain of being snapped at by someone she thought she cared deeply for.
