Chapter 1: The Repeated Nightmare
"Say you'll share with me,
One love, one lifetime.
Lead me, save me
From my solitude.
Say you want me with
You here, beside you.
Anywhere you go,
Let me go, too.
Christine, that's all
I ask of you." and then she woke up. That was how the dreams went. It was just her Angel and Christine in love, forever. She had other heart wrenching dreams like this. This wasn't the only time Christine had these dreams about her heart-warming Phantom. All sorts of songs written by her Angel filled her head in her slumber. But she wasn't about to give her heart up to him just because she sympathized him. Her love belonged to Raoul, didn't it?
She woke up, crying his name and sweating like a maniac. Raoul quickly ran to her side as soon as he heard the screeches coming from her room. He tried to relieve her of the horrible dream but nothing helped. Raoul quickly reminded her of their Wedding day that was approaching quickly.
"In the morning, I want you to go pick out your dress for Sunday. As soon as you wake up, get dressed and head to the town to pick out the most exquisite dress anyone has feasted their eyes upon," he demanded. This frightened Christine for earlier in the relationship, he had abused her and she didn't want that to happen again. She laid her head down to attempt to enjoy a soothing slumber but once more she dreamed it again.
Once awake, she hurried to get dressed to tell Raoul that she was leaving for the square. This startled him for it was on six in the morning. She had backed up the excuse that she wanted a fresh start and to get a good dress but that wasn't the reason at all. Christine was going to the remains of the once beautiful Opera Populaire to face the man she had loved and yet feared at the same time.
