Crystal walked around the park, until she saw the willow tree. "My way home" She whispered and gently touched the trunk. She gasped and quickly withdrew her hand. "Someone has seen it, but whom?" She thought to herself. She placed her hand on the trunk again, and closed her eyes. She saw flashes of a boy, touching the tree. As she saw each flash the picture got clearer and clearer. Until, it was perfect. The boy turned his head around, and she saw who it was. "Zack" Crystal said and walked off.
"I'm telling you, she isn't normal!" Zack exclaimed.
"Zack, you're being paranoid. Crystal is Spence's girlfriend, end of story. If she really was, some sort of freak Spence would know." Cam said annoyed.
"I'll show you the tree; it has some weird mark on it. The same one Crystal has on her watch. She's not normal!"
"Zack, stop it! She's totally fine, and there is nothing wrong with her. I'm tired of explaining to you over and over again" Cam said and walked off.
"Cam! Come back! At least see the tree!" Zack yelled. Cam rose up a hand and stopped.
"Save it, Zack. I don't want to hear it. Why can't you be happy for Spence? He's our friend" He replied and continued to walk.
"I'll make you guys believe me, if it's the last thing I do." Zack said to himself as he saw Cam walk away.
"Spence, I really like you" Crystal said.
"I really like you too" Spence replied brushing her hair from her face. Crystal smiled and continued
"I really like you, and that's why I have to tell you the truth. Spence, I'm…I'm…I'm not suppose to be here. In fact, I'm not from around here" Crystal stuttered.
"It's alright, you'll fit in fine and I like you anyways"
"No, that's not what I mean. Here, I'll show you" Crystal replied and touched his forehead.
Spence's body felt warm and he felt a slight breeze brush his arm. He saw fields and fields of flowers and he felt the sun on his skin. He felt at ease and when he looked to his right, he saw Crystal. She was wearing a long white dress and her hair was blowing in the breeze. She walked closer and closer to him, and when they were an inch apart from each other. Crystal closed the gap, and their lips touched. In an instant, Spence broke out from that dream-like state and saw Crystal in front of him and everything was back to normal. "What did you do to me?" Spence asked.
"I mind-warped you" She replied.
"What are you?" Spence asked his voice shaking.
"I'm Crystal. I'm not from around here"
"Where are you from?" He asked.
"I actually don't know, I sort of live in between dimensions" She replied.
"Wait, hold on. You live between dimensions?" Spence asked his curiosity beginning to take its toll.
"Yeah, ever since I could remember. I lived in a blank white space. I think when I was six; I learned how to travel from dimension to dimension."
"That still doesn't explain how you did that mind-warp thing on me" Spence said.
"When I travel from dimension to dimension I learn new skills, and I gain more knowledge about the universe. Oh, yeah I can control time too." She added.
"You can control time? So, you can turn back time and you can make it go faster?" he asked.
"Yeah, usually but something went terribly wrong last time. So, I turned it back and now I'm here" she replied her face darkening.
"What's wrong?" Spence asked with concern in his voice.
"This time, is my last chance to make it work." She replied. "If I can't save the world this time, it'll be the end of all humanity." She added looking down on the floor.
"Can't you just turn back time, and try again?" he asked.
"Not this time, my powers are weakening. I'm afraid, if I don't get it right. I won't be able to try again."
"How do we stop this from happening?"
" The ancient texts say that if we use the most innocent heart and the wisdom of the human race and combine them together, we can save the world." She replied.
"Sounds like something Zack usually is involved in, let me go get him" Spence said turning to go look for him. Crystal grabbed his hand and looked at him. Spencer's hand felt a familiar warm buzz from her hand, and it was like their first greeting all over again. Her eyes locked onto his, and although they weren't talking. He could hear her clearly: "No, you're mistaken. He's not the one, you are".
