I woke up with a throbbing headache. As I looked around the room my vision slowed down. Everything was suddenly in slow motion. Oh goodness it's making me sick. It makes me want to throw up! I closed my eyes and reopened them again. Just as I did that, Olivia came in the room and turned the lights back on.copyright protection13PENANAFNTxNh0IoD

" It's time to wake up, girlies!" Olivia yelled enthusiastically.copyright protection13PENANAWij6GABsjN

I was just sitting on my bed with my mind blank. Can you blame me? It's morning! Soon my mind started functioning again and then I heard Pastor Hull's singing.copyright protection13PENANAkkZ1WgEPey

He's probably outside using the megaphone.copyright protection13PENANAQUlKs81sRq

" Rise and shine!" He sang. " Rise and shine! And give God the glory, glory!"copyright protection13PENANA5NJoUpZvSi

Pastor continued singing and finished it with, " Time to get up!"copyright protection13PENANAjcCjezzTpO

I got out of bed after listening to Pastor Hull's beautiful singing. I changed into my normal clothes and waited to see if any of my roommates were left in the dorms. I sat on one of the beds and just waited there.copyright protection13PENANArfJM0bV2DN

Not a second later, I stared into nothing and got deep in my thoughts. I closed my eyes and quickly opened them again because I didn't want another vision. After a few minutes I looked at my watch, it was almost time to go. I left the dorm and headed to the main building.copyright protection13PENANAsJBc8vB71t

I stepped inside the building and saw that a team was already preparing the tables. It's great that there were couches inside. I sat on one of the couches and waited for the team to finish.copyright protection13PENANAqlG2EVCeO1

As I took in a deep breath, another vision appeared before my eyes. Before I even realized it, I wasn't in the main building any more.copyright protection13PENANA3fhM2hXYkB

It appeared that I was at the forest edge, there also was open field nearby.copyright protection13PENANALMlmYtSABT

In the distance, I saw a large group of people walking to the middle of the field. It looks like there are twenty-two people there if I'm counting correctly. My curiosity is more significant than my fear, and I decided to creep closer to see what they were up to doing.copyright protection13PENANA31eK4TFG8t

Half of the group were girls and the other half were all guys. They looked like witches and wizards from what I could see. They were all wearing brown robes, but only one of them had a black one. That must be the head witch, the one with the black robe. All of them had a book in one hand.copyright protection13PENANAIbJ0YLiWKC

How magical. Hold on, are these witches going to perform black magic?copyright protection13PENANAxvpTSonKYY

"I know where they are. We need to get to them," The witch with the black robe said.copyright protection13PENANAE10SM4MrLU

"When shall we go?" A wizard asked.copyright protection13PENANAUt5Eu3pMZa

"After this meeting, Alfanzo," she responded.copyright protection13PENANApxFOqycNia

The group of wizards and witches continued and I kept a watchful eye on them. Well actually, I kept my eyes on the head witch. There's something about her specifically that I don't feel good about.copyright protection13PENANAMWcMPYQBpC

And as fast as lightning, she turned her head and looked straight at me! My heart dropped, and I started to feel unwell. For some reason her face deformed and got replaced by a familiar face!copyright protection13PENANAvk5BYAFomF

" Are you okay, Nariko?" she asked me in concern.copyright protection13PENANAyLceADNMr5

In a blink of an eye, I got out of my vision. When I opened my eyes again, I saw the other campers were surrounding me. The girl who I saw before was looking at me. She then turned around and called out for Pastor.copyright protection13PENANAWd290S8Quy

" She looks fine now, Pastor!" The girl said.copyright protection13PENANAs0SyBR8hgv

Pastor came over to me and put a hand on my forehead. " You're not warm, that's good. Although she's been spacing out a lot since yesterday and each time after that she'll get pale."copyright protection13PENANAWOh93RNQDe

" Oh no.." she responded. Well, I can understand. How are you going to respond to that?copyright protection13PENANAWArZKrSSim

I told everyone that I'm fine and got up to find a spot at the table. The girl followed me and sat opposite of me. She gave me a friendly smile and I smiled back at her. The rest of the campers filled up the seats next to us.copyright protection13PENANAqLmikYatgq

Pastor announced the plan for today and blessed the food. The team that set up the table were allowed to go first.copyright protection13PENANAYcfgmj799L

The girl in front of me then said, " Hi, I'm Luna by the way."copyright protection13PENANAn6lP55hYXA

I nodded. Wasn't she the girl who tried to hug me the other day? I think it was her. Or it may have been another girl yesterday.copyright protection13PENANAknlHGGGR9W

" I'm Nariko, it's nice to meet you Luna."copyright protection13PENANAh79wnvQvFZ

" It's nice to meet you too!"copyright protection13PENANAg26CScH9aF

Soon after Luna said that, Pastor came to our table and told us to get our breakfast. Everyone at my table got up and joined in line for the food. The food looks delicious as always but I got what I needed and went back to my seat.copyright protection13PENANAKu35cKLSBV

A few minutes later, Luna came back with her food and also sat down. For the whole time that we had breakfast we talked to each other.We clicked immediately and had quite a lot of common interest!copyright protection13PENANAPS3YprufW9

I knew for sure that I'll be with her for the rest of my time here at camp.copyright protection13PENANAfcclO5xweI

After everyone had finished their breakfast, I went out through the back door. As I got out, the door behind me slammed shut!copyright protection13PENANAcZdf4p0QiB

"What in the world?!" I gasped in surprise. That's weird. Luna, who was trailing behind tried to open the door, but she couldn't open it. It wouldn't budge!copyright protection13PENANAM7uP6UgBac

"I can't open it!" I heard her yell from the other side. Suddenly, a strong wind pushed me against the other door!copyright protection13PENANALppYLe3jLi

I winced in pain.copyright protection13PENANA1XhfdmEddX

"Oh my gosh! Nariko!" Luna gasped loudly! the door opened! She came out and knelt next to me. She looked at me with worried eyes.copyright protection13PENANAOZ4jObd4Nn

"I saw you getting pushed against the door! By nothing!" she said as she helped me stand up.copyright protection13PENANAhzNHxzVATG

"Are you alright?" she added to it as I stood up correctly.copyright protection13PENANATVEaaRxO4K

I pushed her hands away and said, " I'm fine."copyright protection13PENANALTJQcy2qDP

I may have said that too harshly, and Luna looked up at me with wide surprised eyes.copyright protection13PENANANVoBCWayx4

I sighed, " I'm sorry. I'll explain later, Luna."copyright protection13PENANAfqZTB9L8YQ

Luna smiled and nodded. She hooked her arm with mine and smiled at me. " That door slammed into my face and it hurts."copyright protection13PENANASJJCAWbCmO

My eyes widened at her, how did she not scream out of pain? " What."copyright protection13PENANAsaJRLmOWUl

"Nothing!" She sang as if she hadn't said a thing. " Let's go to the dorms already!"copyright protection13PENANA09LZ3m9Ou7

Luna then pulled me along with her towards the dorms. This girl is weird. Like me.copyright protection13PENANAFnQpZrlb4I

We went to the dorms to get our Bibles, notebooks and pens. I looked over at Luna who's staring off into space and poked her. She then looked up at me surprised.copyright protection13PENANAZxSJoE6dA0

"Yesterday when I was spacing out, it wasn't because I was deep in thoughts or anything. In fact, it was like I was dreaming! I was having a vision, girl!" I told her! I was probably looking like a madwoman: big eyes that stared into her soul and holding her shoulders.copyright protection13PENANAyBajBeGK2a

Luna just stared at me. After a few moments she said, " Oh so that's what happened to you."copyright protection13PENANARIyI7y9sJd

I let her go after that and picked up my stuff that I accidentally dropped. "Don't worry your secret is safe with me. She said as I looked up again.copyright protection13PENANAbJL4saIznj

I smiled, "Thanks for understanding."copyright protection13PENANAzVVKewYVg1

Luna and I went back to the main building and sat down at the same place we ate this morning, but this time Luna sat next to me. Pastor Hull, who was here already, went to the front and said what we were going to do for the first session of the Bible Study.copyright protection13PENANA68JEQQc0jW

"In the first session, I will be preaching to ya'll," he said. "Then we will take a short break and then we'll start the Q&A session and tomorrow we'll be watching a movie about the fall of man."copyright protection13PENANAeuFZy89hHw

I nodded while pastor continued. He told us that we were going to sing before he preaches. So we sang a couple of songs together.copyright protection13PENANAAhrv1G2ZBj

"Lord I lift your name on high!copyright protection13PENANA0IrKmhAziU

Lord I love to sing your praises.copyright protection13PENANAvwoavXiFe0

I'm so glad you're in my life!"copyright protection13PENANAbPhDlijniV

We all sang together. But I noticed that Luna was stumbling on the words.copyright protection13PENANAGjD830qEzI

"I don't know this song," she whispered to me. I shook my head, " It's okay."copyright protection13PENANAy4fXfKUyp9

"I'm so glad you came to save me!copyright protection13PENANAyBYQek9yIr

"Very well done guys! Now let's start today's lesson."copyright protection13PENANAuFecnOT85u

Pastor Hull then taught us two songs with hand motions. The songs were 'I want to be your friend' and 'Bind us together, Lord'. Pastor then prayed and started his sermon.copyright protection13PENANAur70uNvtPb

As I was listening to his preaching, my attention seemed to shift towards something else. I went into another vision! Everything was fading away from me and then suddenly I was in an unfamiliar place!copyright protection13PENANAWVrmv5S6UB

I saw two figures not too far from me. From what I could make out to be, one of them was the head witch from the other day. But she was talking to a black figure, why can't I see him properly?copyright protection13PENANAFphTCEIvNN

" I saw her. That girl."copyright protection13PENANAZhf7hJUNdK

The witch almost came over as flabbergasted. It almost seems like she couldn't believe herself that she saw me!copyright protection13PENANAZ9Frvbwnhr

She looked up at the figure and whispered, " I did."copyright protection13PENANAZWQhQsWzYJ

" I don't care. You have to prove that you saw her, Tezia!" The figure raised his voice at the woman. " If you really did see her then I can't believe that you let her go!"copyright protection13PENANAmY1B5jl07z

" But it was a vision that she was seeing!"copyright protection13PENANAK6IqxeB3CS

" Well then you need to find a way to get her here! I NEED HER!"copyright protection13PENANAuCPlTFOPeM

" Y-yes sir, I-I'll find a way to get her here."copyright protection13PENANAzBLAdQUzR1

Poor Tezia stuttered in front of him and stumbled away from. The figure seemed to sigh as he watched her go. I figured that the figure was a man because he crept closer to me until he was in front of me. He lifted up his hand and caressed my cheek. This is so uncomfortable.copyright protection13PENANA8B7R2F5DJI

He let his hand stay on my left cheek and whispered into my ear. "I knew that you were here. I had hoped that she would get you." All of a sudden he grabbed me by my shoulders and shook me violently!copyright protection13PENANAveklzd0o3f

The world around me changed.copyright protection13PENANAbDRWd4N8EE

" Nariko-"copyright protection13PENANA9NghEiXKVG

" Nariko!"copyright protection13PENANAsrUMMu0NS4

Luna was lightly shaking me, I looked at her in confusion. " You were spacing out out again, did you have a vision?"copyright protection13PENANA24HT0VYN3D

I nodded. " Well at least he didn't see you spacing out again."copyright protection13PENANArdqHv50sPV

" Yeah, true," I laughed. Pastor then told us to stand up and sing a song for invitation. We stood up and sang the song. After we sang, pastor told us to sign up for the tournaments. He said that the papers were on a table at the back.copyright protection13PENANA9in449z5Wr

I went to the table in the back, a girl with brown hair was signing up for volleyball. After she gave the pen to me, I put my name next to hers. I also signed up for another tournament.copyright protection13PENANAaZvRTwMSjQ

More people started coming in and they also went up to the sign up sheets on the table. A girl that I saw from last night came up to me.copyright protection13PENANAvL4Wtz1t2R

" May I join your team with Elizabeth?" She asked. " I'm Emma, by the way."copyright protection13PENANAoc9LgdVPjS

Elizabeth is another roommate and we started talking during the first session. I nodded at Emma, " Sure, you can join my team. I'm Nariko."copyright protection13PENANAhtRNlKj8DD

Emma and I started talking some more. She's a really nice girl. After a few minutes, our break ended and we were back in our seats. Some people started asking questions about the sermon. I just sat there not knowing what to they were talking about, but I was listening to what they have to say.copyright protection13PENANAY8o34SC6lF

Soon after the Q&A, we went out and waited for lunch to be prepared. The tournaments were held after lunch and I can't wait to do it. I went to the ping pong table which was on the porch. I saw Luna playing with a guy, and she was losing big time.copyright protection13PENANAXJR6v8krXE

" Hey! Hey! You! Stop doing that!"copyright protection13PENANAjf7a3tVnBy

" But you are not good at this, Lila."copyright protection13PENANA0AHpDMhgSD

"Dude, my name is Luna."copyright protection13PENANAVQnNWSVhkT

"Okay, Lily."copyright protection13PENANAVD93NcwJz8

"Stop saying my name wrong!"copyright protection13PENANAhAIZ0lLiBD

I pulled Luna off to the side before she could crawl the guy's eyes off. Luna looked at me with wide eyes and shock, she even had her hands over her heart!copyright protection13PENANAVxtikqbgHv

"Oh my gosh, Nariko! You scared me!" She squeaked and laughed afterwards. I laughed as well, "Who's the guy you're playing against?"copyright protection13PENANA9D8jGWvdG5

"Oh him?" She pointed at him. Right as she pointed at him, he looked up and said: "What?"copyright protection13PENANAlXF3WFpIY1

Luna looked back at him and then to me again. There was a pregnant pause before we busted out laughing.copyright protection13PENANAlTzPbUgnaY

"That's Mark, he's the guy I came along with," She said after our laughter died down. copyright protection13PENANASkB1DiY8vE

I nodded, "Thanks for telling me. Later Mark."copyright protection13PENANAeRCTVzzlhx

The poor guy was still confused and just replied, " Huh? Yeah- bye?"copyright protection13PENANAmDqWtCQJZ0

Soon the hours passed by and it was already evening. The tournaments had finished already, but I didn't win anything. I almost won a tournament, but too bad. I was hoping that I would at least win one game!copyright protection13PENANAISljTYCR78

I was already in my pajamas and on my bed. We had already done our devotions and showers. I was actually writing characters sketches for a new story that I thought of.copyright protection13PENANAwlZ8fVHOgY

After a while, Olivia had turned the lights off. It was dark, but I was still there with my eyes wide open. My thoughts drifted off and I remembered all the little things that happened today.copyright protection13PENANAmDCNA5qqPp

It sure was one of the best, for now.copyright protection13PENANArxiMRcLt4S

Who knows what happens next?copyright protection13PENANACAeCItxqiO
