THE DREAM WALKER
by Michelle Murray
Miranda is plagued by vivid dreams of a another world. A world of castles, forests, Ice Caves, and dragons. She goes to a bookstore to see why she is having these visions, and learns she is a Dream Walker. Miranda heeds the call of need, and travels to Mystica. For years, the wizards have been trapped in stone. Now, one curious boy has released Midnight. Midnight gathers an army, and prepares for war. Miranda needs to find the white wizard Lightning and free from his stone prison. Can Miranda free Lighting and save Mystica?
Mortimer was a very curious boy. His mother worked in the kitchen of the castle. He didn’t know who his father was. Stranger than this, no one else seemed to know either. Gossip spread quickly among the servants. Maya, Mortimer’s mother, was one of the most liked servants. Everyone talked to her, and she always had something to say, except about Mortimer’s father. On this subject, she was very silent. When anyone brought the subject up, she would either change the subject or stay silent altogether.
While Maya was busy in the kitchen, Mortimer spent his days sneaking around the castle. He always found interesting things in the hallways, closets, and sometimes even the rooms. Among the things he found were colored feathers, gold coins, clothes, and odd assortment of chess pieces, various buttons and ribbons, and some string. There was also an assortment of odd items that Mortimer didn’t know what they were or even used for. He didn’t care. He liked the hunt. The castle was always full of people coming and going. He found he could find things in rooms that were being emptied and readied for guests and meeting with the King. Finding different objects to find was his goal. He did not like to keep finding the same old boring stuff. Hiding in the hallways in the shadows, or closets behind the clothes is where he found most of his keep. He kept all his treasures in a box hidden under his bed covered with straw and dirt.
Soon, however, Mortimer tired of seeking his treasure in the castle. He could find nothing that he didn’t already have in his hidden box. His curiosity overtook him and he started looking for treasure outside.
He hunted and searched everywhere little boys could go without getting caught. Of course, he couldn’t go too far. It was said it wasn’t safe outside of the castle perimeters. Evil creatures, wild animals, and bandits and thieves stalked the boundary of the castle grounds waiting for easy prey.
