Dylan watched the semi cloudy sky from his room’s window. It looked like the storm was finally clearing away from Dinotopian skies. Ironically enough, the people around him had finally gotten the message and cleared off from him too. It was strange for him to feel so antisocial. He couldn’t think of a single occasion in the past where he had longed to be alone with his thoughts rather than share his troubles with a friend. Perhaps it was the fact that nothing quite like this had actually happened to him before either that had set the curious shift in his mood. Tamith had come to talk to him but he had asked her to leave him alone. She had looked confused but agreed to his wish. So much was going through his mind at the moment that what he truly needed was time to think.
It shouldn’t have come to as a surprise to him what had happened, such occurrences were common in his family but it had. It had always been a toy to him more than anything else, nothing serious had come from it. Yes, it had come in extremely handy on several occasions and he had managed to save the life of someone dear to him because of it, but it had always come to him in a pacific way, not like it had happened earlier that night.
His head felt like it might split in two. He still didn’t know what to make of the visions he had seen, but he was sure they were true. Logically he was worried for the new arrivals, but what could he do? Yes, a group of them was here, yet the others weren’t. Had what he seen been regarding those here, or there? Or both? For some odd reason he felt the later was true. If he had just taken the time to train his mind to understand this better he might have...
Soft knocking on the door interrupted his thoughts and he felt something burn inside of him. He just wanted peace to think, was that too much to ask for? Grimacing he made up his mind on what to do. If he couldn’t find peace here, then he’d go somewhere he could. He opened the door and walked past Gareth who looked at him startled when he just walked past him and down the stairs. He felt a swift pang of guilt, after all, these people were just worried for him. However this wasn’t something he’d just talk about and there were many things he had to sort out with himself. He made his way around the shadows of the inn making sure he wasn’t seen until he reached the backdoor and exited. He made his way into the barn sat down next to his partner. Karua noticed his presence and also his strange mood and nudge him comfortingly. Dylan rested his head on his partner’s side and smiled thinly. Karua offered his support understanding his need to be alone. He closed his eyes thankfully and lost himself in the labyrinth of his mind. When he had put himself together, then he’d go and apologize for his strange behavior. For now, however, he’d focus on himself before he aided others.
