Dreamwalkers

Chapter 221

“Now, let’s see what these new powers can do!” Andie took a deep breath and let her thoughts flow through her. The brilliant orange, ectoplasmic ears and tail of a Siberian Husky sprouted from her, as the words that would unlock her new ability took shape in her mind. “Fly unfettered, my Confidence!”It felt as …[continue reading]

Chapter 220

“Y’see, this whole thing’s got me thinking about something I should’ve figured out a while ago.” Andie took a deep breath, speaking slowly and clearly – a stark difference from her usual mannerisms. “Heroes – the ones in stories, I mean – aren’t some naturally occurring phenomena. They don’t just… pop up out of the …[continue reading]

Chapter 219

“Wakey wakey, Cedric.”Cedric’s mind slowly drifted into lucidity – called forth into a rough approximation of consciousness by the sound of Dyllan’s voice. Last thing he remembered was finishing a speech of sorts, now he was face down in a pile of rubble. Was being spontaneously ejected from someone’s Nightmare – or in this case, …[continue reading]

“Heroes aren’t supposed to be -” Cedric groaned. “This approach was clearly a mistake.” He paused. “No, not a mistake. I got you to open up, but I need to try a new approach now.”Andie’s ego cleared her throat. “I can hear you, you know.”“I know. I was talking to you.” Cedric leaned forward, pushing …[continue reading]

“Was that really your trump card?” Andie’s ego frowned. “Asking me what it means to be better than someone?”“It was certainly check, but we’ve not yet reached mate.” Cedric’s grin vanished in a split second, snapping back to his resting, flat expression. “It’s still your move, Andie. Answer the question.”“Chess metaphors. Really? Way to be …[continue reading]

“Look.” Cedric massaged his temples, not waiting for Andie to refute his previous statement before pushing further. “Do you even know what arrogance is?”Andie’s shadow grinned. “It’s awesome, is what it is.” She pointed at her ego with her thumb. “Don’t know why she’s always throwing a hissy fit over it.”“Thank you for your contribution.” …[continue reading]

Chapter 215

“Oh, you’re definitely stuck with this now.” Cedric sat himself down in the shadowy swamp. “You made your monster, now you have to live with it.”“Glad to hear you’re confident enough to joke about it now.” Andie’s ego smiled at Cedric, shot a brief glare at her shadow, then turned back toward Cedric with an …[continue reading]

Chapter 214

A rare bout of impulsiveness overtook Cedric. A dumb thought followed by an even dumber action.He de-summoned his drone and re-summoned it below him, bouncing off of it to put himself into the path of the Dream’s next attack. He closed his eyes once more, this time focusing on his desire to enter Andie’s Dream. …[continue reading]

Chapter 213

Cedric held on tight to his drone. This was probably the fastest he’d ever flown on this thing, and the position required to stay mostly upright on his drone at high speeds was as awkward as it was undignified. Fortunately, Cedric was currently invisible, and even if he wasn’t, the only witnesses would be Andie’s …[continue reading]

Chapter 212

Cedric glanced over at the holographic, icy purple radar that was tracking the location of Andie’s Nightmare. According to Andie, she’d broken into Dyllan’s Nightmare by ripping a hole into it, and Dyllan had gotten into Cedric’s by getting eaten. Both of them had come up with these plans by just “listening to their gut.” …[continue reading]
