Chapter Seven

 Marie calmed down when I put my hand on her shoulder. I looked up and down her dress, and remembered her eyes. Frowning, I leaned in closer.

 "What is that stuff?" I asked, glaring at the gloopy mess. She frowned for a moment, then chuckled quietly. Rolling her eyes, she batted her eyelashes.

 "It's called Mascara. All the girls wear it in this time." Time? Time?!

 "Whu-what? Time? What time is it?" I asked, getting anxious.

 "Ah. Well, you were out for quite a while." She explained, as if she was on trial for murder.

 "How long?" I prodded her,

 "Just under a thousand years."

 Silence.

 "...What?!" I screamed. I wasn't angry. Just surprised; caught off guard. She flinched slightly.

 "It's okay. I'm just kinda...Surpri-A thousand years?" I interrupted myself. I shook my head and smiled, "Sorry. It's a lot to take in."

 "Tell me about it; it took me a millennia to wake up. I was the first woman alive." She stated proudly. I just stared at her with a blank expression. If my mouth would've moved in the way that I asked it to, it would've said 'What?!'. But my body wasn't connected with my mind at that moment. She stared at me, that same, proud expression on her face.  

The End
