Now the dreams had stopped, the kids were able to go home. Nancy had to find another job at another hospital, which she did. Krystal and Jessie found a flat for rent and got jobs. The flat actually was on Elm Street, so they were close to the others. All the teenagers stayed friends. Krystal, who had gotten particularly close to Joey, hung out with him a lot out of school hours. After a few months, they became so close that they began dating and eventually fell in love. Krystal wasn't exactly a hot blonde, like Joey's dream pin-up, but she was a blonde with blue eyes and an infectious smile. Plus, she did have an ability to look somewhat hot. Besides, Joey liked her for being a friendly happy person, while also being careful and observant when she needed to be. Krystal had always thought Joey was kind of cute, and she just couldn't help falling for him after a few dates. The fact that he actually did speak up only helped their relationship. "It's weird," Krystal told Jessie. "I think the reason I begun to date him in the first place was because of the whole time we were together in that coma. We got close enough with that." She laughed when she realized the irony of it. "The one who wanted to kill us only brought us together!"
Jessie found closer friendship with the girls, which was fine with her. She didn't particularly yearn for a boyfriend. Because most of the teens maintained friendships with Nancy, the movie buffs did the same (after all, they both admired her strength and courage), and Jessie became especially friendly with the young woman. Also, both girls let Kristen and Kincaid in on their secret, since everyone else alive already knew it. But even so, Jessie still didn't seem to be completely happy. Sometimes, Krystal would catch a wistful look on her face, and she knew Jessie wished she was back in the real world. But Krystal had wished for a new life, and had nothing else tying her to her old world. So while Jessie had something to go back to, Krystal loved her life, and wasn't giving it up.
Soon enough, new people got introduced to this life the girls became accustomed to. Alice and Rick Johnson were two of them, Rick even becoming Kristen's boyfriend. The two girls liked both of them, although Krystal got along better with them. Then there was also tough-girl Debbie Stevens, and Debbie's smart-girl best friend, Sheila Kopecky. None of them lived on Elm Street and all of them knew nothing of the Springwood Slasher.
Senior year was going to start for the teenagers. But around the same time, Kristen had been getting nervous. Almost every night, the other dream warriors found themselves in Kristen's dream, and all of them were getting annoyed. Kristen was convinced that Freddy was coming back for her and the others.
"I'm getting worried." Krystal told Jessie. "She's so sure that he's coming back for her, for all of us."
Jessie looked anxious. "What if he is? This could so easily be a sequel."
Krystal gasped. "Oh no, what if it is? I couldn't lose everyone. Not after we managed to save Nancy!"
"OK." Jessie said authoritatively. "At least one of us has to go to school and make sure the group there is OK."
"I'll do that!" Krystal said immediately. "I don't get to see the others enough as it is, especially Joey. Plus, I haven't really talked to the other teens."
"Thanks, Krys." Jessie said. "I was hoping I'd get to stay. My immediate concern is everyone living out of school."
"But there is something." Krystal added. "There are only four Elm Street children left. Kristen, Nancy, Joey and Kincaid. Would that really have enough for one movie, since they know all about what they're doing?"
Krystal knew Jessie preferred working to school, anyway. Nancy was really the only one endangered that was out of school. But with Kristen's dream power, anyone could get put in danger.
The day before the dreams started again was a day Krystal would remember for a long time. Kristen picked first the Johnsons and then her up for school. It was also the day she became aware of Dan Jordan, a tall jock who Debbie called a "major league hunk".
One of the reasons Krystal remembered it was because it was the day she, Kincaid and Joey confronted Kristen about the dream she'd pulled them into last night. She found them by the lockers. "I'm telling you, he's coming back." Kristen was insisting.
Kincaid simply told her that it was time to stop thinking about that, and Joey told her that if she kept doing that, it might just bring Freddy back unintentionally.
"And if he does come back, we won't be prepared." Krystal added as she walked up.
Joey looked at her then, and Krystal remembered she had only told Kristen she was coming to school. "Krystal!" he exclaimed. "Why didn't you tell me you were coming here?"
"Well," Krystal said, racking her brains for a better reason than just forgetting, "I only registered yesterday, and I only had time to tell Kristen. I could have mentioned it last night, I guess, but I was more interested in telling a certain someone..." she glared at Kristen, though not seriously, "To stop pulling me into her dreams."
At that moment, Rick walked up. "Here comes your boyfriend." Kincaid observed, then jokingly saying "Can he give you a good night's sleep?"
"We don't kiss and tell." Rick answered, slinging an arm around his girlfriend's shoulders.
"I guess we have something in common." Krystal said, stepping slightly closer to Joey, who nodded and smiled. The bell rang before he could respond, and the five of them parted ways. Well, Rick and Kristen were together for their next class, but that was it.
But that night, Kristen rang Jessie and Krystal really late. She only had to say one thing. "He's back. He's killed Kincaid." For some reason, Kristen's dream powers told her whenever someone died.
Krystal gasped and said "Kristen, I'll call you back, OK? I'm just going to check on the others." She hung up and called Joey immediately, hoping he'd pick up.
His mom picked up. "Can I please speak to Joey?" she asked.
"It's late. He's asleep." his mother said. "You can talk to him tomorrow." She hung up before Krystal could reply.
"I'm going to sneak over. I know how to get to his room." Krystal decided. "Jessie, can you call Nancy and warn her? She can handle herself if she's on her guard. And whatever you do-"
"Don't fall asleep." the girls quoted the first movie together, but they didn't laugh. Then Krystal raced through the dark street, past the faded signpost, past 1428, which Krystal knew was empty, though Jesse Walsh's family had lived there in the second movie.
She ran until she got to Joey's house, then used the diamond-shaped fencing to climb up to her boyfriend's window, and knock on it.
Will Krystal save Joey? Is his dream the same since he has a girlfriend? Find out in the next chapter, and review!
