Chapter 1: Lost Tablet
"hmrffb scheano glrx cha fzwid, kjdq!"
Again! I thought to myself.
I always get this one weird dream, and I have been having it a lot recently. Everything is pitch black. I can wave my hands in front of me, but that won't help. I'm afraid, and I know something is about to happen. Everything was a mystery.
But what? I wonder for only the millionth time. Just a dream, I am constantly having to remind myself.
The worst part is that this dream has been very constant, I would much rather be having a better dream( Like marrying Peeta or Fang for example...long story -_-). All of the words are spoken like gibberish if they even are words, and I can't even tell if the voice was male or female, young or old. That is what annoys me. You can tell it is weary or desperate somehow, and this also frightens me.
I mean, my life is already hard enough having ADHD and anger management issues, but now I'm also going completely insane and getting sleep deprived. This boarding school is supposed to help kids with disabilities, like me, not make it worse!
I'm almost completely awake, and I just think when I receive this odd dream, it's like instructions, yay! I'm going more insane, I thought bitterly. I have learned to put the strange ramblings in the background, and focus on more important things like Fang and Peeta...and school...
Just as my thoughts became more and more random, the ramblings immediately stopped, and I was thrown off.
Well this is new, I bemused. Just before I willed myself to drift into another dream, there was a blinding flash of white light, and I suddenly struggled for consciousness in a cold sweat, my eyes full of terror.
"Hey," I mumbled to my roommate Gizelle. She's fourteen, like me, and has some muscle disorder in her legs.
"Good Morning," She quickly replied all too quickly with a bright and cheery tone. Ya right, something is up. " 'S not good for a fourteen year old to go getting sleep deprived right before final exams."
"No freaking duh! Like I didnt know that, geesh, I mean like, I can't control my own dreams." I said snidely with sarcasm dropping off my tongue.
She looked me over and was probably gonna make fun of my bed head again(Yes, a golden rats nest that all the wealthy families live in), or tell me that I have to try to control my dreams, or to go brush my teeth 'cus they reek. She said nothing however, so I put on my leopard fuzzy slippers.
"Remote?" She immediately threw it aiming for my head, but I caught it in the nick of time which is very unusual for me in the mornings, especially when I'm completely sleep deprived. I looked at all the buttons and pressed the one that said 'PREVIOUS', and then I threw the remote back to her.
"I got some new cereal. It's in the pantry if you want some. Help yourself." Gizelle said that a little too nervously. I felt bad for her.
Why? I'm not gonna go attacking her for a little argument, or for nearly hitting me in the face. I mean, she's my best friend. Get real. Sure, I get in a few fights here and there because of my anger issues, but that is for good reasons and to people I highly dislike. Like all those snobs.
"So..." I tried to get a conversation going while I made my bowl of cereal, Froot Loops to be exact. They are so colorful and delicious. "What's with the news? You usually watch Sponge Bob in the mornings...I rubbed off on you haven't I? OMG! I'm so proud of you!" I quickly said between bites.
"Mmm hmmm." She nodded, not taking her eyes off of the screen, she seemed to be getting paler by the second. "There was a dig near Mount Olympus, and they found some tablet thingy. 'A Lost Legend', they call it. Must be a hoax.
This instantly perked me up and I tried to pay more attention. I always had an interest in Greek Mythology, ever since fifth grade. To me it didn't look like a hoax to her though, she actually looked kinda freaked.
"Hey, um Gizelle, I think you need a glass of water or something. You look kinda clammy," I said concerned, now done with my cereal.
She then silently got up and went over to our small kitchen, and I turned up the TV volume listening to some freakishly forever smiling handsome reporter.
"That's right viewers at home!" Oh please, I thought snidely. Give me a break. "I am now at the excavation sight myself, where with me is the archeologist HIMSELF who found this priceless treasure. Tell me, can you decipher any of the inscriptions?"
"Not yet, unfortunately. It's not like anything I, or any or my comrades have ever seen before. These are some kind of hieroglyphics that we have not yet translated to any meaning, yet we can tell based on the type of material and calligraphy that this style does in fact belong to Greek history."
"Aw, well that's unfortunate that, Tom." the reporter said STILL smiling, even when he was 'disappointed'.
"It is Dan! But now one of my colleague thinks they have deciphered a little bit of the script."
"Well lets hear it!"
"Wow! Remember folks, you heard it here! And that's all the time we have for now, so stay tuned with us after our commercial break." He winked goodbye, i mean WINKED! Pathetic. Immediately afterward it went to some boring diaper commercial that nobody wanted to watch.
"Can you believe this guy?" I asked Gizelle as she came back in.
"Not really, Kinsey let's just change the channel."
"Naw it's okay, it is just getting interesting it is just that this guy-" I paused to listen to a video game commercial, got bored and went back to our conversation.
"No really! I'm tired of all this please, change it! You love Sponge Bob too, it is hilarious. PLEEEEASE!" she begged.
Now I chose the time to look at her, a total mistake by the way. She looked absolutely awful.
"Uh you put this on in the first place, so it stays on. Besides I don't think you should watch. You're all sick and yucky," I made a face. Yup, I'm that kind of friend-caring, "Just hang in there until the segment is over, then you can put on whatever you like." I promised her.
"Kay..." She said reluctantly, she was so unsure about her decision! Or technically mine, but she agreed to it so whatever.
The commercial flipped again to some advertisement for a medicine that helps with headaches, and I just then realized that I have had one since I woke up. Crap! She must be contagious!
"And we're back!" The announcer shouted. Gizelle gulped, but I ignored her and focused my attention on the screen, "Now we will show you a complete zoom in on the tablet, and if I do say so myself, it is MAGNIFICENT!"
It zoomed in, and one symbol really got to me. I couldn't help it, but I laughed and I pointed it out to Gizelle who looked panicky at the moment filling her mind with every symbol there.
"Good luck with that one!" I said tauntingly to the TV, " Ha! For Heaven's sake, IT IS A FREAKING SCRIBBLE! LOL! " I started laughing my head off, but then Gizelle finally saw what I was referring to.
Gizelle looked at the symbol and made a shrill noise, which I guess was a scream, and then she passed out.
Oh, Crap! was all I could think of, HUGE understatement.
I lifted up her feet, and splashed a little water on her face, but her eyes didn't even flutter.
I was having a total freak attack, and I mentally left myself a reminder to never get a job in this area. For an ADHD person it could end in disaster. Then I quickly thought of my phone.
"I'm calling the nurse Gizelle!" I shouted in her ear. No response. Out cold. I am really trying to keep what was left of my calm.
Right before I was about to dial in the number, and i looked at the TV again and saw the symbol all up close. Then i was fighting a huge wave of nauseousness, and my headache got real massive and I felt like I was going to split in half or something, everything wanted to be free. Stay awake, I reminded myself feeling absolutely horrible. Gizelle had to be contagious, and now I was gonna pass out.
I have to call, I reminded myself.
"Who? Oh ya the nurse," I said through my teeth, my head was seriously threatening to explode and my nauseousness was getting worse. And now I was talking to moi.
I looked yet again at the TV at the TV, and I just about had it.
WHAT THE CRAP IS GOING ON? DO WE HAVE A DISEASE? I shouted in my head.
No. Something better.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, our building exploded. Yup, you heard me correctly, exploded, as in boom!
