My best friend and I are not mundanes. She was born with it. I wasn't, technically. So, if you've read my first post "Dreaming Prior to Meeting", the person I met was my best friend. My Best Friend is a Taker. I'm a Giver. Many would say it is dangerous to just pass on energy to one another to sustain each one. But, you see, I am bound to her in some way. No, I am not her familiar. She did has some before but she let them go.
Anyways, on the night I took the oath to protect her, to protect her lover and her first born (in the future). She passed something to me, I guess a part of her so in any case I needed to find her, "non-mundanely" I can. The problem is, I could not take her scent or find her using her scent. She can find me using my Persona and my scent. And with that, she took some energy from me to dispel the Shadows following her.
There's this one time, she called me. I'm not sure why but she sounded weak. And she told me to got to my room, locked it and lay down. She told me to find her. I panicked because I don't know how. I panicked more when she said it's life and death. She instructed me to relax and closed my eyes, to follow my instinct. So I did. I did like I was meditating. And, I'm not sure but I think I saw her, lying down, in a grey room. She looked pale and scared. Then at the side of her, there was a shadow. It's feature was of a man, static, instead of a black silhouette. I told her there was someone beside her. She got quiet and said, it's not supposed to be there.
I don't know how to dispel the shadow but I did. By shear force, I think. And he was gone. Then I could feel my body was warming up, and like something is draining energy from me. Back then, I realized, I did right and that I did found her.
Since then, there are times I could feel her emotions. Especially when she's sad or lonely and vice versa. We had this link before we went to a rough patch. I thought it was severed due to our fights. But I think what happened to us just strengthens it. I love my best friend more than anything in the world. She saved me at some point. So, no matter what, from whatever or whoever, I will protect her. I just wish I had enough abilities to do it. Afterall, I was not born with it, rather, technically, passed on to / learned from.
There was also this one time, we were in a fast food chain together with her boyfriend. They were having a silent misunderstanding. And when they made up, suddenly, my best friend covered her hand on her face. Then she started counting. I knew from that point that she was counting shadows appearing. She counted 8 and asked where? Her boyfriend seems elusive but he believes, sort of. When he went out, my best friend told me where. I could not see the shadows, nor hear or sense them. I just know that there are because I did see them when I located her.
But I think I did, about few nights ago. At the corner of my eyes, something dark-grey passed by. I asked my seatmate if she noticed someone passed by but she said she didn't. I checked the hallway but there's no one there.
My best friend also went to our house and told me there's a "Guard" in our place but it wasn't guarding me but my Dad. I don't know why but my dad's a mundane. I know that these "Guards" guard us non-mundanes. So... I don't know.
Please feel free to comment. I need your insights on this. Thanks
