Peach yawned as she opened her eyes. She wondered why she was in her bed. Then she wondered why she would wake up anywhere else. It wasn't like Bowser had kidnapped her recently or anything.

Actually, things had been strangely quiet for a while. Peach hoped that didn't mean they were due for another attempt soon.

She went to breakfast, wondering why her head felt funny and why she kept expecting koopalings to appear out of nowhere.

Anna met her there, a puzzled look on her face. "Morning." Peach greeted the magikoopa.

She thought of Kamek for some reason.

"Morning." Anna replied uncertainly.

"Is something wrong?" Peach asked. Anna shook her head.

"No." She said slowly. "At least, I'm pretty sure nothing's wrong." She frowned. "But something seems off."

"I know what you mean." Peach replied with a laugh. "Maybe you're just having an off day. Everybody has those now and again."

"Maybe." Anna agreed. "I had this really weird dream last night." She commented. Peach's heart skipped a beat.

"What was it about?" She asked, trying to understand why a dream would affect her so. She felt as if she were waiting for something, something that had never happened.

Anna shrugged. "I don't remember, but it was really weird."

"Oh." Peach said, pushing away the feeling that she was missing something important.

Everything was fine.
