    As usual, TOTALY AWESOME!! Sadly, I am no longer writing Castle Hill on the NOOK. I'm writing it by hand, and hope to finish it by hand (the only story I ever finished by hand was really bad so this will be a big feat for me) and mabye one day work it into a real story and have it published!! Or not.

    Chapter Ten
    A voice pulls me from the images.
    "Terrin?" The single word echoes, seeming far away. Hands grab my shoulders and shake me. "Terrin!"
    My eyes fly open and I sit up, inhaling sharply.
    Green eyes, only inches from mine.
    "Kato!" I gasp. I'm sitting on the windowsill, staring at him. "Kato?" What's going on?
    "I asked Alaster where she thought you'd go, and she told me to go here. I came in, and you were sweaty and... pale." He recalls.
    "I AM pale. It's just my skin." I respond.
    "Well, yeah, but still."
    I realize I'm clammy and trembling. "I must've been dreaming." I tell him my dream, and he frowns.
    "Must be stress taking its toll." But he doesn't seem to believe it.
    I don't either. His reassurances aren't hitting home. "Wait—why were you in the girls' dorms?" I ask.
    "I was looking for you." He explains, like that explains everything.
    I sigh and smile a little, shaking my head. 'Boys.'
    # # #
    "Are you hungry?" Kato asks as we walk.
    "No." I answer, even though my stomach's growling. "Do you?"
    "I already ate. Let's go train."
    I nod and follow him to the Training Center. When we get there, I stop short. The place makes the saying "larger than life" seem... small. The roofs disappear in shadow, and the floorspace is larger than four times my house—which, honestly, isn't very large, but this room is HUGE.
    Every weapon ever created is on tables and hanging on hooks on walls, along with some newer ones.
    Kato makes a beeline for the fire-starting station, which looks pretty simple compared to the gleaming weapons. I crouch next to hi. His tight expression leaves no room for question, but I push it.
    "What's your deal? Let's go use some weapons!" I say, moving to stand.
    His tan hand flies out and catches my wrist, pulling me down next to him. "Let's NOT do whatever we can to attract attention, huh?" He hisses.
    "C'mon, I'm a BORN popular girl. I gotta go strut my stuff!"
    "Pfft. Someone's got way too big of an ego. Pride isn't cool."
    "Neither are you. I'm loud AND proud!"
    "Sit down and shut up, okay? This isn't funny! You don't- you don't get it." He mumbles, staring at the skinny match in his hand.
    "Maybe I'd understand if you'd tell me. You can't expect me to understand something I know nothing about!" I stand and storm off, ignoring his call.
    Let him hole himself up in a corner all day! When the war comes, lighting a match won't save you.
