**throws this story into the fire**
Meilin was giving a speech to all of Greenhaven about the second Great War and was answering the questions people had. Most questions were about how she was treated when with the Conquerors, how her realationship with Rollan developed, what her reaction was when she summoned Jhi, the typical stuff. Then, a young Greencloak asked Meilin, "Why did you betray the Greencloaks?!" The he asked in a mocking tone. Whispers started within the crowd. "Yeah! That person is right! Why did you go to the Conquerors side?!" Another person shouted. All Greencloaks were now asking why she went with the enemy. Suddenly, all of them came together and turned into Gerathon. "Hahaha!" The serpant laughed. "You really think you can escape me?!" She asked, a slither in her voice. Gerathon went to one side and standing in her place was Meilin's father. "Why didn't you just stay with the Greencloaks?! Because of you, the enemy was able to follow you! Through the Bamboo Maze! To Dinesh's Temple! Everywhere! You are the reason I'm dead! Not the Devourer! You have brought me dishonor! You are not my daughter!" He yelled at her. Meilin burst into tears. Gerathon and her father started to taunt Meilin. She screamed to attempt to block them out, but they seemed to get louder each time she tried. She looked over and General Teng stopped taunting only to have himself crushed by the crocodile's jaws. "No!! No!!"
Suddenly, Meilin woke up crying and screaming. She stopped screaming and started breathing heavily, looking around to find herself in the guest bedroom at Rollan's house. Rollan burst into the room. Hearing the screams, he automatically knew they belonged to Meilin, and he was going to find out what was wrong. "Are you okay?!" He whispered-yelled, not wanting to wake anybody else up. Meilin whipped her head around to see Rollan standing in the doorway. "Yeah...it...it was just a dream. Sorry for waking you up." She said, still breathing heavily. "It's fine. I get them to." He replied as he turned to go out the door. "Rollan?" Meilin said before he got out. "Yes?" "Will you stay with me?" She asked desperately. "Yeah." He answered, walking to the bed and getting in. Meilin got close until their bodies touched and layed her head down on his chest. "Always." He whispered. "Tell me your dream." He said. "Not a dream, a nightmare." She replied. Then she told him about the nightmare. "I get them almost every night, but it's different nightmare waiting for me every time." She said. "Me too. Except mine are usually filled with the same horror each night." He told her. "What is the horror?" "I'm afraid of losing you." He told her.
