Chapter Three

'What do you mean stranger than before?'

'I don't know.  I just had a really funny feeling when I woke up this morning, like something wasn't quite right, and when I tried to remember my dream it just slipped away.  I know it meant something, I just don't know what.'

'Well now you've gone completely crackers!'  Morgan laughed.  'It's just a dream Alex.  How can a dream mean anything?'

'I don't know.  I'm not sure I understand it but I know there is something trying to get through to me, I can feel it.'

'Has no one ever told you it's a bad idea to eat cheese before you go to bed?'

'I'm being serious!'

'I know you are,' Morgan laughed, 'I just like seeing you get frustrated.'

'Who's getting frustrated?'  Sean asked, sitting on the arm of the chair behind me and kissing the top of my head.

'No one,' I said quickly.  'Morgan was just winding me up again.'

'If you're not careful she'll get you back one day Morgan.'

'Not a chance!'  She laughed, winking at me.  'Alex is too good for that, she wouldn't dare.'

'I wouldn't be so sure,' Sean teased, winking back at her.  'Alex can be full of surprises.'  He groaned as the bell rang again, giving us the five minute warning we always got before the end of break.  'Just as I arrive we have to leave again.  I'll walk you to your next lesson,' he said, offering his hand and pulling me off the comfy sofa.

'We could always just not go,' Morgan suggested.

'No way Morgan!  We'd get into so much trouble,' I exclaimed.

'I was only joking,' Morgan said, laughing at the shock on my face.  'You're such a good girl Alex, I have no idea what to do with you.'
