The Secret to AthenessEveryone in the room looked at Katiebuy benicar. She felt at the moment, that she was dreaming and was ready to wake up. Wake up, wake up! She screamed in her head. She thought of the little girl in the village she met when she first came to Atheness. ‘You will save our village and our world.’ She had said looking up at Katie with her big brown eyes. She was counting on Katie as were so many people. She couldn’t let them down because she was afraid. Katie looked up at them with a new strength. “I’m ready!”
