Dream - Ellie and Jay: Killing Hearts by J-Solreks Dream - Ellie and Jay: Killing Hearts by J-Solreks
This is a sketch based off a dream I had many years ago, I strongly recommend listening to "Anakins Theme" while reading this as it perfectly fits the feeling.

(0:00) He awakens the young man wrapped in darkness to the dew from a leaf landing on his face as the morning light piercing through the thick lush forest, he arises to see a young lady smiling at him as she picks flowers across the stream nearby and beacons him to follow her.

(0:15) As they walk together on this little dirt road leaving the forest he looks up at the immense high of the trees protecting this sanctuary, as they past the last of the trees the intensity of the bright sun and blue sky makes the young man shun his eyes for but a moment as he continues to follow the young lady to a little town hidden by the quiet green hills.

(0:45) The young man looks on at astonishment at this town of little cottages surrounding a stone-paved market place occupied by a dozen of the townsfolk, the young lady brings her findings to a nearby wooden kart and displays them to the neighbors and converses with them and the young man watches beside her silently. The peaceful air breeze carries the sound of children's laughter along with the scent of fresh baked bread from the baker nearby in the marketplace bringing a once present smile to the young man's face.

(1:18) As the sun raises directly above them the young lady turns and smiles to the young man and grabs his hand urging him to follow her yet again, this time behind the beautiful hills of the town. They sit together on the tallest hill as she points to the vast green valley with hills that have no end as she begins to share with him her dream and seeing what lies beyond there...together. The young man ponders on her dream and smiles at her with the agreement longing the same, but he knows there's one thing he must do before that as he rises and heads back to the forest in which they met, assuring her he will return as she lets go of his hand.

(1:36) The sun was setting on the last of the peaceful hills as the young man approached the forest on the road he had taken to leave and Dusk and come as he continued into the vast dark forest until he reached an open field illuminated by the moonlight. As the young man stood at the center of this field he began to rebuke the darkness inside of him, on his knees he began to shed the darkness he had known in earnest to be the partner for her.

"...are you sure?"

(1:47) His pain was real as he ripped the chains of darkness off, proving to be stronger than they as he collapsed to the ground exhausted.

(2:02) When the young man finally awoke it was after sunrise and he began to make his way from this field back into the forest and onto the road which would lead him to the young lady waiting for him to return, he moved quicker than ever gland full of hope and determination as he found the road and swiftly made it out of the forest towards the peaceful hills hiding the secluded town.

(2:14) As he made the pass around the last hill to the village his pace slowed, the marketplace was empty as he drew closer to the village. Now standing in the center of the marketplace he walked towards the bakers kart and peeked into the was nothing more than dust and webs, he then turned towards the young lady's kart and slowly and painfully walked towards it...only to discover what remained of wilted dead flowers. One last glance at the town he saw nothing more than broken windows and dust blanketing all....not a single voice in the wind, not a single person in sight...there never was....she never was.

2:21 His old friend despair stood on the left of him and gazed into his sinking heart licking his chops, darkness then arrived at his right with a grin as he placed his hand on the young man's shoulder and leaned into his ear.

"...Never again"

(2:34)The young man begins to make his way back towards the solitaire forest, this time with his head down and his tears hidden to the rising sun.
