White walls and glistening mirrors. Elegant tapestry and delicate charms. This is Elyon's room.
Everything shone in her chamber. During the day, and open glass leading to the balcony welcomed in the sun and the fresh scent of the forest. When it was night and the velvet was pulled over the darkness outside, luminous orbs of delicate light swept over the marble floor, bed, and all the space in between.
Elyon awoke due to the soft beams of sunlight that managed to enter her room. She got up and rubbed the sleep out of her eyes. She looked around the room and sighed.
This was becoming a habit...
Even though awake, she was still locked in this nightmare. Nothing made sense... But on the other hand, everything did... She held her head for a moment. How long had she been sleeping? The most recent of her memories were all about waking up. Over and over again... And she still felt a little drowsee...
"Cedric..." she whispered. "Phobos..." She quickly shook her head. No Cedric. No Phobos. Today, she would wake up and tell Cornelia all about this crazy dream at school.
She walked away from the bed, rubbing her eyes again as to get rid of the drowsiness. Looking at herself, she noticed how she was dressed in a pale blue nightgown. A maid must've changed her clothes... She looked around the room some more, trying to find her clothes, until she found them. The black sweater, black boots and purple skirt... The clothes she chose for her date with Matt...
As she laced her boots a few moments later, Elyon got quite determined. Today, she would get out of this bad dream. Back to being Elyon, without weird flower-creating powers and whatnot...
Elyon walked towards the large ornamented doors. Later, all of this will be nothing more than just a forgotten memory. She would laugh at it, and Cornelia would-- As she touched the door lightly, she noticed she shivered. Cornelia would throw her out the window... She took a few steps back, holding her head as she felt her heart beat in her throat. Where did that come from!? Cornelia was-- is her friend. Her best friend!
She tried to grab hold of something... Anything! A feeling of dizziness came all over her within the blink of an eye... No! It's a deream! It's just a bad dream! It can't be real. It can't possibly be real... Even though it looks so real... As if she could almost touch it... She got up, trying to find her balance again, and did it. She threw open the door and ran into the catle's hallways. No clue where to go. Elyon randomly turned to the right-hand corridor and ran through it. As long as she could get away from here...
Elyon smiled at him. Meridian still didn't quite feel like it, but at the very least she could try to make herself at home here. "So am I..." she said "So much has happened today... I'm exhausted..." she placed her hand on her belly and added: "...and hungry. Do you think it's near dinnertime yet?"

"Mmm..." Cedric pondered for a moment. "I'm pretty sure it is," he nodded, "but I think it's still a few hours before the royal feast that your brother usually has at that time around. In the meantime, you can come with me and we'll get a snack, ok?"

Cedric returned the favor, squeezing Elyon's hand slightly. "There should be something to eat in the dessert chamber, that is, if you like sweets. There are other things, but sweets are what it mostly consists of."

[Enter: Elyon and Cedric from The Dining Chamber]
"Looks like we're again," Cedric joked. Cedric'd been holding her hand the whole way there. He'd been afraid that girl would fall asleep in the halls. The halls were no resting place for a princess of her status. "Now, Elyon, take a rest. It's been a rough week for you. Have sweet dreams."
"Thanks, Cedric." Elyon replied. "You too." She sat down on the bed and slowly removed her black boots from her feet. She didn't know, nor cared for that matter, where she should put them, so she just dropped them next to the bed and let them rest there. She was about to take her black sweater off when she paused. Is Cedric still there, watching?
Elyon briefly smiled and whispered: "Good night to you too..." She waited until the door had closed again before she continued to undress, dropping her clothes on top of her boots. She lifted the blanket and carefully crawled underneath it as she realised she hadn't unbraided her hair yet. Making a quick point of doing so, she proceeded to rest her head on the soft pillow and closed her eyes. Then, Elyon just waited for sleep to catch her...
Light shone into the dormitory. The light of a brand new day, and it forced Elyon out of her sleep. With a slight yawn, she sat upstraight in her bed and streched her arms. She opened her eyes only to see that Meridian was still surrounding her. At first, Elyon wasn't too overly exited about it. It meant that everything that happened yesterday really took place. It meant that there was no way back from this point on. "Cornelia..."
But her spirits were quickly lifted as she realised that there was a whole new world for her to explore. And more importantly: Cedric would be there too. "Cedric...!" she whispered to herself. She hadn't seen him yet today! Not too difficult, since she was awake for barely a minute, but still!
She hopped out of her bed and quickly put her skirt, sweater and boots on. She was about to braid her hair as she suddenly realised she hadn't washed it since her failed date with Matt. "I guess I'll have to ask Cedric that too..." Leaving her hair unbraided, she opened the dormitory doors and went to see the hall where Phobos' ball was going to take place. Surely Cedric would be around there too?

[Enter: Cedric from the Bath Tower]
As he entered the elegant room he stared around all it's magnificent features. After a couple of long minutes he pulled himself away from his gaze and searched for a closet.
Finally he found golden bordered, double-door closet. There was a mass of beautiful, petite dress hung onto pure golden hangers. He wasn't really sure which one Elyon favored, but seeing as she wore purple a couple of times, he picked a simple dress with fairly short sleeves that'd only go down to where her forearms started. It was only long enough to go just pass her knees and was very fluttery.
He sighed and planned out how he'd enter the Bath Tower again. He knew he had to be careful not to peek at Elyon. So he decided he'd knock on the outer wall near the door and tell her her clothes were coming.
Tridart/Sandpit: And so another year has come to an end. I hope everyone out there had a happy holidays and a happy new year. Godspeed to everyone out there. Bring on the Switch!
