My head is so sore from stopping time but I know have it down to an art!!! Haha! Im gonna learn how to rewind time now!! yay! Calvin said this will be very useful if someone is going to die I can turn it back and save their lives. But the best part now is that I fall in front of a bunch of people (which happens alot) i can tweek time, and stop my self from falling. I'm not quite sure how time works, I need to ask...
OK this is Calvin (Cloe: I was to lazy to listen to Calivn talk then write it all down so ill have him type it then ill read over his shoulder.)
Time works in very weird ways. I've been studying time all my life and it isn't the easiest concept in the world...
You know how time stops, you can stop it for just one person or thing, just the air around one person, or everything.
You can relive a moment by stopping time for everything and concentrating on a time you want to go back to. It's hard to go far back in time. Farther than a week is hard because you need to try to remember everything about that moment. Anyways once you concentrate on that one moment time will move to it. The whole universe will change to the time you will. Most people wont notice at all. Some people who have time in their blood will think its da-

Scared Silly - I don't get how you can be scared silly, its an oxymoron that doesnt make sense.
Things are getting better. Controlling time has been getting easier and easier. Im having alot of fun too.
Last night, that was so creepy. I can't believe I got so scared from that. I can't imagine whats to come. How am I gonna react if just one guy scared the hell out of me?

rollercoasters are evil!
I talked to Calvin. He said, "The reason that you feel sick is becasue you just froze it when you werent thinking and it took alot of your energy.
"I thought you wanted me to not think about it and just come naturaly?" I said. I was kinda pissed.
"I want it to come second nature for you. So you don't have to think about it. But your still learning so it's going to be hard. It's like for the first time you just went on a rollercoaster, you'r body's not used to it so it's making you want to throw up. It's naturaly. When you learn when your little it wouldn't have been so bad cause your used to learning new things but now it's hard. But, don't worry it'll get better."
"I don't like rollarcoasters."
Calvin laughed, "You did a good job though. I would have gotten really hurt if you hadn't had stopped that energy ball."
"Who was that. Why did he want to hurt me?"
"That's the kind of thing i've been protecting you all your life. They've always sent amatures cause they thought I couldn't handle them. I could, of course. Today they sent someone that I normally would have had a problem with but they weren't expecting you to do that. That was a great hit! Let me just say that I am really proud of you."
We were standing up but I sat on the floor cause i was tired. He sat with me.
"There's this evil force, I guess you could call him 'The Bad Guy,' Mark Simms. I don't know much about him but I do know that he wants to the rule the world (The motive for every bad guy.) But this isn't any villian, he's something worse. He's just a regular guy, by that I mean no powers, he used to be a scientest. His main study was TIME. When he figured out that there were people could change time. He found out about your mother.
He conned some "power sorcerers" into helping him. What they do is they make power. Thats how we have electricity and stuff they felt sorry for the people with out powers because the only great invention they had was fire. So they created electrictiy for them since they couldn't make there own. Thomas Edison, he was the one with the idea, haha he didn't mind getting rich helping the poor mortals.
Anyway Mr. Simms said that he wanted help so that the world would run better with the power they could supply. They eagerly wanted to help. There not that smart about stuff like that. They sent some of there men with him so they could help him with his plan. He turned told them his plan to rule the world. They didn't want anything to do with that, but when he offered money they couldn't resist.
Ever since he's been trying to get a time sorcerer, first he was trying to get your mom, actually he just sent power sorcerers. Your mom and my dad were really srtong and they fought for along time. But he sent so many and they were so much stronger that our parents couldn't fight anymore. They died an honorable death.
Now he's after you. But I will fight with you even harder than my father fought, and I will not fail."
"Thank you!" I couldn't help it but I gave him a hug. He was surprised but he huged me back I hadn't hugged anyone since I was little, it was nice.
"You need to sleep now. We need to keep working and you're gonna need your strength. Good night."
"Good night. And thanks again. And I do feel safe with you and I'm starting to believe that we can beat this."

it came by night
About an hour ago something came into my room. I was so scared. It came in through my window. I screamed of course, and moments later Calvin came running in with his bow and arrow. It was like this large shadow thing. It turned into a guy. I was about to scream again when something came out of his hands. It was like a dark powedery ball. It wasn't solid but like some sort of magic.
I screamed out stop!!! And the evil ball thingy just frozed in mid-air. The reason it just didn't fall on the floor was that I frozed everything around it too.
The guy and Calvin stared in disbelieve for a couple of seconds. Calvin was faster to gather his wits because he quickly put his arrow in position and aimed it at the guy.
The guy just smilled and jumped out the window. Did I mention this is a 3 story house.
I've been in the bathroom ever since I feel like throwing up. I don't know why I just do. Calvin wants me to let him in but I wont.
I'll write more later. I better go talk with Calvin.

We've been practicing my powers all morning long since like 6 this morning we stop occasionaly for food and bathroom brakes. It's lots of fun. I'm still learning how to stop time for just one thing. It's hard. My aim is so off. But that makes sense I guess casue I can't throw a ball so how am I suppossed to throw time? Haha
I've been practicing on Calvin even though he's kind of big and he's alot to freeze it's easier than say an animal cause they move to much. On Calvin sometimes I just freeze certain parts on him like only his hand or leg. It's really rather funny! Except one time I think I froze his umm... yeah. I was trying to aim for his stomach so it would go all over his body but I think it went a little to low. You should have saw his face expression! It was so funny. J.r. saw and started busting up laughing but with just a twitch of his hand Calvin was ok. He got kind of mad though, thats why were taking a break.
Anyway I'm gonna describe everyone right now cause I'm right awake and I'm in the mode to write.
Calvin: Tall, Black Hair kinda long to his shoulders, Light Skin, Green Eyes, Skinny.
He's so sweet! He's really smart too. I know that if I'm in trouble he's always gonna be there for me. He's done a good job of taking care of me so far. I'm sure that in the neat future we are going to become really good friends.
Johnny: Tall (even taller than Calvin), Even lighter skin, RED HAIR (hehe cute!) Blue eyes.
He's so nice too! Except that he's so quite I haven't had any time to spend with him but he's so great you can't help but feel comfortable around him. I still want to know what his powers are, I know he has some!
J.r.: Dark Brown Hair, Light Brown Eyes Almost Hazel, Pretty Light Skin, He's so funny! When I'm with him I never stop laughing. He's also a great teacher. He's taught me so much. I've gotten so attached to him and I've only met him a couple of days ago.
Gigi: She's my dog. She's a mutt so I don't know what she is. She has short hair thats grey and brown eyes. She's small enough to fit in my backpack when she doesn't want to walk. She can be a bit spoiled sometimes but I love her so much. She's the only thing that has stayed constant in my life. I found her when she was just a little baby I was about 10 we've been insperable ever since.
Cloe (me): Im kinda short. I have brown hair and brown eyes. Theres nothing about me that makes me special or anything I think I'm very plain.
Well thats about all I can think of to describe the people in my lives. There so great and its hard to describe how they are in the inside not just there outside apperances.
Well I think practice is gonna start soon so I better get a snack cause we usually don't have dinner till late.

Today I learned how to control my powers some more. It was so exhausting. Calvin made me read a book on time travel, that was written by my uncle Ralph. I've never met the guy but the book was great. I thought it was going to be all boring and scientific and stuff, but he wrote it like a fantasy so people would buy it. The story was so great I read the whole thing in like 3 hrs. It was like a three-hundred page book.
Since Ralph's book was such a great hit he decided to write more books. I want to read them all. They're all about a young teenage boy that controls time, I'm pretty sure its him.
Calvin gave me this book, It's beautiful. It's black leather with a beautiful symbol on it of a clock with a world on it. In it is my destiny. I havent started reading it yet. He said I should wait till a full moon. That will be in 3 days. I can't wait but I'm very scared to see what it says.
I met one of my uncles today, his name is J.r. He's the funniest person I have ever met. He's great at time. I asked him, "Why come I lived in foster homes all my life and why come you never came to visit me."
He said, " I always wanted to come and have you live with me. But evil has been hidding you. None of your other family has been able to find you. Calvin was hidden from his family like you have been hidden from me. You see Calvin is very good with dreams. Its easy for him to slip into someones dream when hes right by them but he found his familys dream when they were way across the country. It took him a while, but he contacted his family and thats how you got here."
He taught me how to use my powers like now I can stop time for one thing, so its like frozen. It was so fun learning that because he made so many jokes.
He told me that there's a way to stop time for just the oxygen aroung a person so it kills them. Once I get really good at my powers, he said I'm gonna be so powerful! He also said this,"With great power, comes great responsibility." Calvin did a very good job taking care of me because evil has been after me because I have a very big destiney. He said that there's two things that can happen in my future:
1. I will stop the world from it being taken over by evil. He's seen the future and knows that there is a very big plan to destroy everyone and everything and I am the only that can stop it.
2. I will turn evil and become the strongest leader this world has ever seen.
Whatever I choose, good or evil, I will be the best at it.
I told him," I want to be good. And I want to fight evil."
"Good the first step in ambition and will and you seem to have alot of that. Your next step is to know your powers so well that you wont even have to think about it. I know you can do it! And I will be there for you whenever you need me and so will the rest of our family. But when the times comes for you to fight we are going to have to leave you, you won't understand now, for the resaons are unclear, but just remember I am always in your heart."
"Don't forget Cloe, I will always be there with you, I will be fighting by your side the whole time." Calvin said with a big smile on his face. He was gleaming with pride for what I will one day in the very near future accomplish. I smilled at him but in my heart I was scared.
"Yes not only are you going to have to trust your powers but you most trust Calvin too. He also has a very big destiny and he's been doing a great job so far." J.r. was quite as he stared at us smilling. "You guys are so young but I have every once of confidence that you will come out with shinning colors.....Well on to the work there will be more time later for the pep-talks." He laughed.
I'm so tired right now. Every day has been so tiering but I'm anxiouse every morning to learn more. I wish my mom was here because at night I get so scared and even though I know I can go to Calvin for anything it's just not the same.
Oh yeah I saw Calvin looking at a photograph of his family, I know he misses them dearly. I feel bad for him because I know what it's like to not have your family with you.
And Johnny's been gone. Calvin said he has things to do. It sounds like he's keeping something from me. When I told him that he just looked at me and smiled then walked away. I wonder what Johnny's doin and if he has a big destiny too.

Ok i finally have time to tell you what happened.
Last night Calvin came into my room just like he said he would. There was a guy with him. His name was Johnny. He was very nice, but very quiet. Everything happened exactly like the dream except that I didn't wake up. Calvin was right. I did want to leave that place. Im sad to have it go but I'm glad i'll be on to new things. I think I'm here for a more important reason just being alone.
After we got into the car and we drove away. We went to a big old victoia house in the middle of no where. Thats where I am right now. Its so beautiful. Yesterday when I wrote that someone was comming it was just Johnny he had left to go get some more food. He scared as when he came back though. Calvin was already to fight. He had a bow and arrow a sword and a gun and probably more things hidden in his clothes that i didnt even see. For a second he looked like someone out of Lord Of The Rings.
Im so tired, because since we got here Calvin has been telling my destiny and my past.
Heres what he told me so far:
"Theres a problem in time. Thats what I do "Calvin said, "I take care of time. I can't contol it like you though."
"What? I don't control time!"
"You do you just don't know you do. You're a very powerful time sorcerres. I've been taking care of you since you were born. That's also my job to make sure that the time sorcerrers are taken care of and to keep evil away from you. Thats what my family does. We are the guardians of time. Since the beggining my family was chosen for this job. As was your famliy was chosen to fight evil by using time.
I know you've always wondered about your parents. Well you see my father was the one that was supposed to take care of your mother. But he failed. Your mom died and your father couldnt take it anymore. I havent heard from him since. My father died to taking care of your mother."
" Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry."
"Thats what my family does. It's understood that we have to give up everything for you. And you have to give up everything for time. Later you can read your mom's recordings. I have her journal so you can know what happened and it will help you train.
Thats what I'm getting at though. Cause since your mom's dead there's been no one to teach you how to use your powers."
"I told you I don't have any powers!"
"Here lets try a little experiment... Close your eyes and think of time stopping, as if everything was frozen."
"Umm... Ok but this Isn't gonna work!"
I closed my eyes and concentrated really hard of everything being still of time stopping on my demand. It was actually kinda funny. Then all of a sudden I felt this very odd sensation through my body. When i opened my eyes everything was frozen. The clock stopped, there wasn't any wind, or anything. All i could here was my breathing and the sound of my beating heart. I started freaking out. I took a step to Calvin, it was kinda hard to walk everything was very stale. It was hard to breath like there wasnt enough air. I shook Calvin's shoulder. Then all of a sudden everything started moving again. I took a deep breath. Calvin started cracking up laughing.
"What's so funny!" I demanded!
"Hahah! You should have seen your face! You looked so scared. I can't believe you did it! I knew you were really powerful! You stopped time man!"
"I did? Wow! That was so cool! But it was really hard to breath."
"Yeah that happens whern you stop time. That's what I'm gonna teach you, how to control your powers. Im gonna help you do you can move back and forth though time. stop time for only certain things, and all kinds of cool tricks!"
"Can I start learning them now?"
"No, not right now. You've had a long day. You need to sleep. Stopping time probably took alot of your energy and your not used to that."
"Yeah your right I feel kinda sleepy."
I'm gonna go to sleep now. I can't wait till I learn how to control my powers. I've never been so happy before in my life!

Calvin said that I would be a good idea if i kept writting in this journal, because after its all over, my descendants are going to want to know what happened, and this will help me remember.
When I first met Calvin I really thought he was crazy. I thought that maybe he wasn't even real that I had somehow created him in my desperate need for friends. But, he's real.
Oh no it sounds like someones comming I better go so bye for now.

the feeling of being alone in a crowd
Im in my computers class. This morning at break a guy came up to me as I was sitting under a tree reading a book. I thought that he was gonna come over and make fun of me. He said, "Hey."
"Ummm.. Hey." I said. I was wondering what he wanted.
"Can I sit down?" He said. He was cute. His hair was dark black and it was kinda long. He had very light and skin and was wearing a black. It looked like he was going to church or a wedding or something. It was very odd.
"Thanks." He sat down. "You don't know who I am because I've never revealed myself to you. My names Calvin." He put out his hand. I shook it.
He cut me off, "Yeah I know its Cloe. I know everything about you. I've been watching you for a long time. I know this sounds weird, but i've been watching over you since you could walk. I've been taking care of you and making sure evil couldn't get you. You probably think I'm crazy." He laughed." And I don't blame you. But you must believe me! I've been sending you those dreams so you'd be ready. Tomorrow night were gonna leave. I know you want to come. Theres nothing here for you anyways. You have an important job to do. You've none that you've always been different from everyone else. I know about your infactuation of time travel. The reason for that I can't tell you yet. But just believe me and you'll find out. I have to go now but please trust me!"
I wonder if this is true or if he really is crazy!!!

I had that dream again... it was happening exactly the same except that one of the guys stopped and told me that this was all dream. I thought that was odd. He told me that the reason I was having these dreams was because they wanted me to be ready and know what to do when the time came for it to acctually come true. He told me that tomorrow at school he was going to talk to me. I didn't go to school today. I don't feel so good but its actually because I'm to afraid to see if he's real... I wonder if im gonna have another dream tonite. I don't think he's real but still it freaks me out.

The one thing that sucks about living in this town is that theres nothing to do. I don't really know anyone nor do I care to. I mean no disrespect but everone here is a hick. Yeah I know I don't have a right I was born here and on. But I think it would be so much better to live in the city like L.A. or something. Im getting pretty bored. I think I'm gonna get Gigi so we can go for a walk. Yeah that sounds like a good idea. Maybe something intersting will happen unlikely but maybe.

I had that dream again. It was exactly the same except that it went farther. We went out my window and into a car. I don't know what kind of car it was ( i don't no much about cars.) It was black, and nice. A kind of sports car I think. We drove for hours. It was 2 in the morning. I was so tired. They told me to sleep cause it was gonna be a long ride. As i drifited into sleep I heard the two guys talking they spoke in a different language. I don't know what it was. There voices sounded afraid. I heard a phone ring the one that wasn't driving took out a cell phone. He spoke in english and said that he had me and that I was sleeping in the car. He said we were almost there. That was the last thing I heard before I feel asleep. When I woke up I was in my bed. My body aches from sleeping all crunched up. I feel like I sleeped in a car. Maybe I'm making to much of these dreams. But they scare me. I don't know what there all about. I want to tell someone but I have no one that i feel close enough to talk to. I'm scared. This isn't like any dream, it feels so real.

I had that feeling again that someone was watching me. It really creeped me out. actually I have that feeling again. Ever since that big storm two nights ago I've been feeling so afraid. I don't know whats happening. I had a strange dream last night. In my dream some one is in my room. Its two guys about my age. They are wearing capes so I can't see there faces. They tell me that eveything is ok and to not be afraid, but I am. They tell me to get dressed and put the wormest clothes on two of everything. They say because were going somewhere far away and it might get cold. For some reason I have feeling that where there taking me is where I belong. It really scares me. I don't wanna leave but in my dream I know that I must. They don't have a gun to my head or anything. They hand me a back pack and tell me to take only my most preciouse things. They worn me not to take much cause im gonna have to carrying it by myself. I grab two pairs of pants, 5 shirts rolles up ( im wearing two shirts already), a couple of undies,socks, bras, my brush, my favorite book, a notebook and a pencil, and a small photo album with a couple of pictures of my family and friends. I also grab my favorite stuffed animal which is a panda. I ask them if i can bring my dog, Gigi. They hesitate for a moment then say yes. I also grab this dog blanket thing that she can wear that ties around her body. I put on my turtle neck sweater and then my hoddie. I slip on gloves, a scarfe, and a beanie. I put on two pairs of socks and my black convers. They say Im gonna need better shoes. I tell them that these are the only ones I have. They tell me its ok that we can get better ones later. I slip on my best friends necklace and it slids in place with the one i already have on. Which is a stone that looks like it came from the moon on a silver chain. I pick up my dog and tell them Im ready to go. They ask me if I'd like to say goodbye to anyone. I say no it doesn't matter cause I'm ther foster child and I don't know them. They tell me they already knew that. I ask them if I should leave a note so they wont worry. They said someone will tell them where I'm going. I ask them where am I going. They say all in good time. I wak with them out my window and onto the balcony. I whisper good bye. As they help me down the ladder I suddenly wake up. Im laying in my bed like nothing happened exvept I'm cold like I just been outside even though I'm wrapped in a dozen blankets.
I don't know what this dream means. I kinda wish it was realy cause I don't want to stay here. Its not that I don't like the people I'm staying with. Actually I'm pretty lucky because there very nice and they said I could keep Gigi and they even bought her good name brand food, Puppy Chow. Gigi loves it here. Ther have there own dogs that are old, humongus labradores. Its nice. The only thing that bothers me is that it smells of old. Mr. and Mrs Johnson (the people taking care of me) are old and strange. All they ask of me is to not be to loud and not leave a mess. Mrs. Johnson makes deliciouse food, and Mr. Johnson tells great war stories. They can't have children so they've been taking in foster children ever since they were married. I like them alot but I don't think I could ever love them. I don't think I could ever love anyone. I have the feeling again that someone is watching me. Mrs. Johnson just yelled up that dinner is ready. Thats another rule, we always eat dinner together, I like that. I also like this computer they said I can do whatever I want on it cause they don't know how to use it, its for the children. Im the only child here for now which is nice. It smells like lasagnia, I better go.
