I remembered a few things that I left out the first time. Uh… I hope I fixed all the mistakes I made the first time.
A class field trip to some unknown destination halted when the bus broke down in a swamp that seemed as if it appeared out of nowhere. Tekie is sitting in a set in the middle of the bus with headphones in her ears, ignoring the world. The kids around her are being disruptive. Something blue catches her eyes and she jumps. She looks quite startled as she stares out the window.
Tekie: Do you see that!? (She points towards the blue humanoid shape that is floating over the swamp water. Her eyes are wide, and she is gaping at what she is seeing.)
Kid #1: I don't see nothing, freak!
Kid #2: Yeah, ya psycho!
Kid #3: What do you see?
This confirmed that no one else could see the blue figure that has captured her attention.
Tekie: I really don't know.
Tekie pushes people out of her way to disembark the bus. She almost trips down the stairs as she races to the blue being floating over the water.
Tekie: What are-
The blue being dives into the water before she can say another word.
Tekie: (She runs to the edge of the water and drops to her knees) Come back… Please! (Eyes full of sadness with one hand stretched over the water)
Bubbles start to appear at the water's surface, and Tekie starts to become nervous. She quickly backs up a few feet. She watches as a small patch of water darkens as whatever is down under the water breaches the surface. A one foot mechanical spider with a baby blob shaped head appears. Scuttling towards her, she becomes strangely clam, but frightened at what it might do. It stopped two feet in front of her and she felt compelled to knell. The area where the mouth should be caved in.
Spider: Find my name
Tekie: What? (She was slightly confused. This was shown on her face.)
Spider: Find my name.
One of the metallic legs pointed past the bus filled with gawking and screaming kids.
Spider: Find my name.
Tekie: (Face full of confusion, but hopeful understanding) Okay, I will.
Tekie turns around, with one last look at the spider. She walks right past the bus, much to the dismay of the frightened kids telling her to come back.
Kid #3: Please get back on the bus!
Tekie: I can't, I have to go.
Kid #3: Please be careful!
Tekie walks past a large, green willow tree and everything starts to morph, looks more like a forest as she walks. After walking strait thought the dense trees, she ended up in a urban town yard. She walks up to a small porch with Greek polls. An old lady sitting on the porch smiled and waves when she caught sight of Tekie. Not wanting to be rude, Tekie waved back. She goes right onto the porch.
Old lady: Did he send you?
Tekie: Excuse me?
Old lady: Did my son send you?
Tekie flinched in surprise.
Tekie: (Thinking to herself) Was the blue figure her son? (Out loud) It… It was your son?
Old lady: He asked you to deliver his name, correct? (Tekie nods quickly) Do you want to know?
Tekie: (hastily scratching her head) (hesitantly) Yeah… I… (Clearly)Yes, I need to know.
Tekie was now standing in front of the lady, and somehow ended up on her knees.
Old lady: Please tell him his name is *~~*. He has waited long. Please don't forget it.
Tekie: *~~*? I won't forget. I don't think I could again. (Her head snapped up.) Why did I just say again?
Old lady: You will find out again in time. Please try to make it to him this time.
Tekie was walking down the stairs against her own will. She was starting to freak out. Her feet were moving, but she wanting to ask more questions!
Tekie: What do you mean this time!? (She was already half way across the yard, towards the forest.) Damn!
Tekie only had one foot off the property and she could already feel the weight. The more of her body past the threshold of the yard the heaver she felt. Finally gaining control of her own feet she pushed forward into the heavy feeling. She feels as if she is sinking.
Tekie: No! I have to make it to *~~*!
Everything seems to drop away.
Tekie wakes up screaming. She finds herself in her bed. The look of complete dread is placed regretfully on her face. It's two fifteen in the morning. She face slowly distorts, as if she is going to cry.
Tekie: (talking to the darkness that mocks her.) That's why I said again, that's why she said again. Why does this happen again and again! I keep forgetting! What is his name! How come I can never remember? Why can't I remember this name! I remember everything, but his name!
Tekie crawls to the center of her bed, sobbing quietly.
Tekie: I'm sorry I keep forgetting your name
