Meet a boy.
Is it real or just a dream?
Katie's everyday life suddenly turns exciting when she travels back in time and meets the boy of her dreams. Thinking of nothing else, willing to leave the real world behind, she's determined to find out if it's all a dream...or not. Returning again and again, Katie almost has her answers until one day her precious book goes missing.
“Drew!” Katie felt butterflies in her stomach.
He held out his hand. “Come on. I won’t let you fall.”
She slowly stepped onto the rock, and inched towards him. Her heart pounded but she felt safe. He put both arms around her, holding her tight as they both faced the canyon.
“There is nothing like it, is there?” He whispered softly in her ear.
Katie could have stayed like that for the rest of the day, but knew she had to get back to work. The magic had to end. “I have to go.”
“Yes, I know.”
They stepped back a few feet until they were on what Katie thought was more solid ground. She knew the rock was just an extension of the land but it felt as if she was miles from El Tovar. She turned to run back to the hotel then stopped.
“Drew, I …” She looked into his eyes, his sparkling emerald eyes. Her heart flipped. “I hope to see you later.”
“You will. You definitely will. Tomorrow is Saturday.”
Katie ran up to the brush next to the hotel, grabbed the pails and headed to the back of El Tovar. Saturday couldn’t come soon enough. For now, she needed to finish her shift and then head to the boardinghouse and go to sleep. She knew the only way to get back here was through her dreams. How confident am I? Will I be able to return? I’ll just have to believe, like in all good fairytales.
