I could hear a faint buzz in my ear. I wanted it to stop. I tried to remember what I was dreaming about, as I wanted to go back there. I could vaguely remember it being a good dream, a good place, and I didn't want to leave. If only that buzzing hadn't appeared, and dragged me from there. I decided to give up, and focus on what the buzzing was.

"Sorry, I ran off" I heard someone say. It sounded like Willow. Was she talking to me?

"Yeah, Dawn healed his hands we're just waiting for him to wake up" Kira sighs. Why would Dawn do that? What was wrong with my hands. I suddenly got a vision of my punching the tree over and over. Oh.

"Do you mind if I go?" I hear Willow say, with which Kira replys with "Of course not."

I know I should have woken up, but I didn't want to. I was slightly embarrased by my outburst, I never normally act like that. I wanted to be tough, strong, not like how I was. I could feel the presence of everyone around me, and I dredded waking up to that. I could feel a small hand holding on to mine.

"Is he okay, do you think?" I heared Kira ask someone.

"I think so, I think he's just asleep." Said another voice. I tried to rack my brains to think who it was. Maria?

I open my eyes slowly, expecting the light to hurt them, but it's still pretty dark outside. I must have only been asleep a couple of hours.

"Your awake." Kira said to me, smiling. I tried to sit up, but my bones were sore and aching. I was used to that though, from the nights I had slept out rather than going back home. Kira and Maria were stood there, watching me, waiting for me to say something.

"What time is it?" I asked them. It was the only thing I could think of saying, and I didn't want to talk about what happened. Maria looked at her watch.

"Eleven." she said to me.

"How did you find me?" I asked them. I was sure I had hidden far enough into the forest.

"Long story. Maria used her special magic with the plants to find you." Kira said to me. "Shall we walk up to the castle?" I nodded.

The walk was silent. It seemed the other two didn't really know what to say to me. I walked a distance apart from them, but no one mentioned it. If I was being honest, I was ashamed of myself. Ashamed that I had let someone get to me like Dawn had, and make me go off like that. And in front of everyone as well.

"Henry?" Kira said softly. I turned round to her, and her face was lit up beautifully in the moon light. I wanted to reach over, and hold her, but I'd embarrassed my self enough all ready.

"I'm sorry about... your mum and everything." I just nodded my head, and turned back round. Why is it everyones always sorry? There not sorry. It's just something they feel they have to say.

I thought back to Dawn. She lost her mum too, and I yelled at her. I should have known better. At least I knew mine a while. I shook my head and streched. Maria yawned, which set me off. I decided that I would apoligize to Dawn in the morning. It would be hard but, I needed to.

The End
