She looked around her, at the barren lands of Kanas. The strong wind was blowing her hair out of her tear streamed face. She really didn't think she would return here this time. She really thought that she would stay In Oz forever. She wanted to. The strong mix of emotions she had felt over the last few weeks had been too much to handle. The fear, the love, the heartbreak, it had all been too much. Where did it start? Looking back, she realized that it had all started with the dream….
In the dream, Dorothy saw the Land of Oz, Munchkin land to be exact. It was being attacked by a strange beast with flaming eyes, and giant gruesome claws. It flew over the town breathing fire, while the little Munchkins ran all over the place. She saw her friends, the tin man and Lion. She saw some others who weren't munchkins or people she had seen before. There was a man with a giant hat laughing like this beast was the best thing in the world, and a flying cat that was, smiling? Everyone was trying to put out the flames and stab the monster. Then Dorothy saw him, the Scarecrow. He stood tall and looked confident. He walked up to the beast and with his sword in hand he attacked it. The creature didn't like that and knocked the sword out of his hand. Then he blew a fiery breath at the Scarecrow.
"No!" Dorothy screamed jumping out of bed. "I have to get to Oz!" she said to herself, "but how?" she looked frantically around. She panicked and before she knew it she was running out side with Auntie Em screaming after her.
She just kept running on the barren plane when she bumped into someone and fell to the ground. She looked up. "Zack?" she said.
"Hey Dorothy," said the farm boy helping her up, "where are you running off to?"
Dorothy hesitated before telling him. After all he had been the only one she had told of her adventures in the magical land. He was the only one she trusted, they became friends when he started bringing her family eggs every week.
"I have to get to Oz," she said, "they need me."
"what happened?" he asked seriously. Dorothy liked how he believed her, no one else would.
" I… I had a dream, there's no time to explain." Honestly she didn't know why she was in such a rush, just the image of Scarecrow being blasted with flames kept running through her head.
"Well how do you think you're going to get there. You outgrew the shoes years ago."
"I don't know… I just… have to go," she took off running again. Zack called after her but she didn't turn around, she just kept running.
She ran and ran, but then she was falling.
She hadn't seen the hole until she had fallen in.
So she fell and fell, and eventually, she even fell asleep.
Hey thanks for reading. I'm writing this story with my sister(it was her idea) I hoped you all liked the beginning. Some parts of the story might have confused you or sounded familiar, but that's because I kinda have an obsession with Alice in Wonderland. But don't worry this is an oz story. Again thanks for reading and please review!
