In the early morning, Alexander woke as the rising star Vega hit his face. He covered himself with a blanket and he laid in bed motionless, struck by it. Getting out of his bed slowly, he popped his head out of the window. Looking up at the hills, he wondered about Jardi Meadow and whatever that would mean to him. He had no idea. What a heavy burden he had to think about. He retreated back into to his bed. ‘How can I get there if my mother won’t allow me?’
A knock was heard from his door. “Alex, are you awake?”
Alexander did not answer. He closed his eyes as if he was asleep.
His mother partly opened his bedroom door. “Are you alright?”
He opened his eyes, feigning that he was waking from his sleep. “I’m still tired Mother. I couldn’t sleep last night.”
