I was catching my breath when I woke up.

”What the hell is that guillotine in my dream?! ”

”You okay, Tine? ” It was Tessa, she handed me her cup of coffee.

”Y-yeah, I was just dreaming. ” I check the others but they are no longer here. ”Where are they? ”

”Ellis go out early to talk to some people outside. ” she answered.

”Some people?! we are in the middle of the forest, who are they? ” I was alarmed when I heard her answer.

”Chill babe, ” It was Adraine who enters the theater room. ”They are the one that keeping this place safe. ”

That made me calm. Again, I blew a deep breath and remember my dream. ”I was dreaming. ”

”About what? ” Tessa asking me while helping me with the comforter that we made us our bed.

”About…. ” when I try to open my mouth to talk about my dream. ”Weird. I can clearly remember what it was all about. ”

”Just get up now and prepare for our breakfast. ” Tessa in her teasing voice. ”Maybe it was just one of a weird dreams. ”

”Yeah, maybe. ” I just answered and continue what I am doing. I know what it was, now that I am thinking, I can remember it well. The unknown feild of weird plants. The fat tree, and that freaking guillotine.

But, trying to talk it out to them, it always hang from the tip of my mouth.

What was that guillotine for? We are now living in a modern world, where guillotine is almost not being used, why am I dreaming about it?

I check my self in the mirror. Breakfast was done, and everyone is almost ready to start our hiking, but here I am wondering to myself.

Of all the things I can dream of, why guillotine?

”We have 2 guys with us and 1 girl, to join us with our hiking. ” It was Ellis.

”Didn Adriane own this house? Why are you the one talking to them? ” Tessa ask

”Well, it was not bad to talk with others sometimes. ” Ellis answered and shrug her shoulders.

Making sure am comfortable with my pants, I bend down and made few squats.

”Perfect. ” I mumble. I wore a white sleeveless shirt and my denim jacket prepared beside my bag.

”Is everyone ready? ” It was Adriane.

She check up on us and headed back to where she came from, so we all followed her.

”Girls, they are our guide. ” She motion her hand. ”This us Phin. ” The yellow shirt guy. ”This is Alas. ” navy blue shirt guy. ”and this is Diane. ”

”We are your tour for today. ” It was Diane.

”Tessa. ” She said and offer her hand for a shake. So I did the same.

”Prestine. ”

”Finally in flesh, Prestine Hermosa. ” It was Phin. ”Im fan. ” he said.

”Same here. I remember buying the last copy of your book, Voyage it was one hell of an experience. ” Said Alas who is shyly offering his hand.

I gave them my sweetest smile. ”Thank you guys! ”

This is the best feeling when meeting with fans. When they all remember the name of my book, asking for an autograph or a picture.

An overwhelming feeling, as always.

Being supported, they are the sole reason why I reached this goal.

As soon as everyone ready, we headed to the forest for our hiking. As far as I remember with the plan, we just needed to stroll and headback to rest, since we plan to visit the nearest beach Tessa mentioned.

It was like walking in the park, thats how slow we all walk.

I, on the other hand trying to enjoy this scenery. Though all I could see are trees. Those huge trees that way more taller than the house we slept.

If I look more into each tree, they are nothing but plain tree.


What am I expecting from these trees, by the way.

”From this point on, we will be reaching the top. ” It was Phin who talked that make me look at them.

I didn even notice that am few steps far away from them, so I tried to walk faster to hold Ellis hand.

”How can you walk so slow? ” she commented.

Adriane scoff at what she said. ”Isn it to enjoy the trees. ”

Tessa even laughed that made me roll my eye.

”Yeah, I am enjoying the trees very well. ” I answered with sarcasm.

”If you say so. ” Ellis.

”You must be careful on the way ladies. ” Finally, ive got to hear Dianes voice.

Looking at her sweaty forehead, I smiled. ” I walk way slower compare to them. ”

”Its fine. We have all the time. ” She assured me.

Phin started walking so Adriane followed him and we continue this hiking.

Alas slowed down his pace and walking behind me.

”You must be careful. ” He reminded me. I smiled to him and followed Ellis, who is still holding my hand.

Few more steps, I have to make my pace faster since I can be any slower while Ellis holding my hand.

I stop walking when I heard a waterfall sound.

”Is there a fall nearby? ” I ask with excitement.

”Yeah, we will be reaching the river then we will head to the top. We will be able to see a waterfalls there. ” It was Alas.

So, as he said, I got excited to see the falls. I mean, enjoying the cold water in my feet won be bad, right?

I have always this excitement for waterfalls. It makes me feel like a child excited to bath in the rain.

Thats how I always feel.

”And we are here! ”

I was in awe for this wonderful nature my eyes have witnessed.

Clear water, the sound of that waterfalls, the green leaves of the forest. It was a magnificent view.

”Can we jump from here? ” I suddenly blurted out a question.

”We can, though the water level down there might be six feet tall. ” Alas.

Smiling and enhaling this fresh air, cities barely have this unpolluted airs.

”Sure? ” I wanted to make sure.

”Can you swim, though? ” this time it was Phin who asked me.

The four of us went into silent because of that question.

Knowing that only Ellis can swim,

”W-well, we can enjoy the view. ” Adriane.

Tessa looks like shes trying to hold her laughter, when our eyes met, I made sure that she can see my eyes rolling!

We checked for a place our mini picnick for resting. Under the shade of this huge tree near the river.

”So are you enjoying this? ” It was Tessa who asked me.

I gave her a nod and smile. ”Nature really is amazing. ”

”Truth.! ” Ellis. ”We can find something like this in the city. ”

”Yeah, even behind your mansion. ” Adriane, who is now busy sharing the sandwiches they made before we left the house.

”Well, behind my mansion is different from this. ”

”Yup! Though, maybe having a big mansion, far from the city, is quite amazing too. ” Adriane, who sit beside me.

”Theres nothing wrong with my mansion girls. ” I told them.

After a few more minutes of talking and eating, they all wandered and left me with my pen and notepad.

Starting to write down whatever ideas my mind have.

I was being drowned with my ideas. My hand starting to move faster to match with all of my ideas to jot down, when I felt that the entire place around me became so silent.

My eyes started to move around, the trees are all dancing with the air, it goes all in the same direction, I look down at the water flow.

I didn bother with the silence so I continued writing, when suddenly I heard a sound from my back. My heart started to rumble when I didn hear any voice from my colleague.

Another sound of a foot step that made me turn to look behind.

My heart didn calm down, due to this silence, that I just realize, why the hell I can hear anything?!

Despite the sound of the pen I am using.

Cold wind blows stronger. And what I saw made me gasp!


”W-w-w-w-wh-at….! ” I can find any words from my mouth, gaping wide as I stare at that guillotine!

I am all aware that this is not a dream! A freaking guillotine, standing firm in very front of me!

”T-Tessa….! ” I tried to shout, but it came out as a whisper.

Another blow of that f*cking wind cold. I heard a weird sound, I try checking only to find out the blade falling down!


I wanted to runaway. To run fast, but my feet feels like being glued.

”ELLIS! ” again, another whisper came out from my mouth.

I look away for a second, when I look again to that guillotine, It stands the way it didn fall its blade!

Another sound of a weird one, then the blade is about to fall again.

My heart can take this. I can barely breathe because of how scared I am, my sight became blurry.

Trying to calm down, when I heard the loud sound of that blade falling down, I wanted to pinch myself, but when I heard the sound of the blade, I lose all my concsiousness…
