Last night, I had this really creepy dream.
It started out as me being an earthbender. And then, inexplicably, I lost my bending. It wasn’t taken or anything; it just kind of disappeared. No one—including me—ever questioned it. I was just suddenly a non-bender, but I was still friends with all these benders.
Then I was being stalked by Amon. Like, if I left my house and went anywhere, I would see him ducking out of sight. If I stayed in the house, I’d have to listen to him creepily being like, “I see you” all the time.
“I see you reaching for the phone, Suzanne.”
“Going upstairs? I can still watch you there.”
“Is that Brittany you’re talking to? Tell her I said hi, would you?”
And then shit started exploding around me. Like, I would be standing in the hallway, and the door beside me would suddenly be blown off its hinges. The book I was holding blew up.
Somehow, I knew that Amon was blowing things up around me in an attempt to corral me into his trap. He was going to capture me, give me bending, and then take it away publicly to show people what happened to non-benders who supported benders.
I woke up at that point. I don’t even know what was going on.
