Diana's Tale Chp 3Ok, that was closer, lets try again, Im sure youll get it this time.
You said that last time, and the time before that, and the time before that! I said, exasperated. I sat down with a thud and looked up at Claire, Lets just face it, were not getting anywhere.
For the past hour, Claire and I had been trying to override my sudden fear of the water. Claire had taken my news very well, and had immediately begun thinking up ways to figure out what was wrong with me.
Well, whats keeping you from going in? Claire asked.
I dont know. Fear, I think. I mean, I'm fine going up, and up to a certain point I can rationalize the fear away, but once I decide to actually go in, panic overtakes me and I freeze.
I sighed and looked out over the water. We were sitting on the rock I had jumped off earlier. It was stra
Diana's Tale Chp 2I dont understand why you insist on going down to the river every day, my mother said. Its not as if its hot out.
I know, Mum, but Claire and I just really like to swim, I explained, So can we?
I suppose, but if it starts to thunder
I know, get out and get home. We understand Mum.
Claire and I took off for the river. It had been several weeks since the bear incident, and since then Id noticed a few little things had changed.

Even though my eyes were closed
I could see it-
The skin of my arms prickled,
sweat dripped from my brow.
It was two in the afternoon but…
the sun was setting
through the window facing east.
I should have seen the hutch,
shelves lined with bone china
decorated with delicate leaves and vines.
I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
A sugar rush disguised

and they were swarming me.
There was a small vial
of insulin in my pocket
