Yellow light was shining. It seemed to radiate from her body... Moths were attracted to her... Blankness followed. With a cough Neren woke up. She had dreamed again. The dreams were less in both frequency and content these days. Sitting up, she found herself in her back yard. Quickly she stood up and went inside. After putting on clothes she ate breakfast. While she was getting ready for school her family started coming down.

At least I didn't sleep walk far this time. That would of been bad, considering it is a school day. The end of school was around the corner and Neren couldn't wait for it to be over. It was the Monday of the week of finals. Today and the Tuesday were mostly for review and studying for the large tests.

After packing Neren walked to the bus stop. Her house was a couple miles away from the school, definitely not close enough to walk. When on the bus she took her book out of her back pack and began to read. The outside world seemed to fade around her as she was immersed in the world of the novel. The dry winds of the desert planet Arrakis blew across the land... A web of betrayal, decit, and loyalty subtly wove the story together, entrancing her.

The hiss of the bus door sounded and students started standing up. They had arrived at the school. Shoving her book in her bag, Neren stood up and walked out of the bus with the rest of the students.

It wasn't that bad. Her first three classes went well. Relief flooded through her when lunch came. Although she wasn't too worried about the finals herself, the other people's tension was contagious. Plus, they were finals. They had a legendary reputation for being tough. Lunch was a time to eat and read. Neren sat at a table to herself, ate, and opened her book. The struggles of the Fremen and the remaining Atreides family swept her up again. She was almost done with the book, and wanted to finish it soon. Although it was good it wasn't her favorite book. As someone who once was her friend put it, "I tried reading Dune, but it was a bit dry for me."


"Shale! Get up! You don't want to be late for school!" With a groan Shale rolled over in his bed, eyeing the clock. Yawning, he got up. After showering he put on his worn clothes. Breakfast was toast with butter and jelly. He liked the bread with nuts in it, it didn't seem as good without the heartier texture. Hastily shoving yesterday's homework into a folder here, packing a lunch there, he prepared for school.

Finals were almost here, and once they were finished, school would be over. He was excited! Walking with a bounce in his step, he arrived at the bus stop. As he rode he watched out the window. When they passed a lake he almost laughed at the beauty of the sunrise. The light reflected red-orange off the water, glittering. The lake is my favorite part of the ride, he decided.

At school there was the usual early morning banter going on as Shale got ready for the first class. People were so alive at this time despite the fact that 45 minutes earlier they had been in bed. Well, maybe not 45 minutes, Shale was just guessing.

Classes seemed to go by slower than molasses, but it was worth it. He realized studying was important for success in the finals, so he was going to take advantage of all the time he had. In Shale's opinion how well one did on the finals was partly luck. One never knew how a teacher would word a question. There could be a way to ask a question that would click in your mind and unlock the door to the answer. There could be another question that asked essentialy the same thing, but didn't have that vital word or part needed to make you remember the answer or understand the question.

When it came time for lunch Shale walked around, looking for his friend, Mitchel. Keeping an eye out for his friend's skinny body, Shale saw him and sat down. "How have you been doing? Thing you're ready for the finals?" he asked.
