A dream within a dream


I was running at a fast pace fearing for life, seemed something was chasing me from behind. I had no place to hide and I was afraid to look back, fearing for life. For me it was the end of the earth and I was hanging in the air. I screamed for help. There was no sign of help and all I could see were the dark clouds laughing repulsively at me.

The next morning I called and insisted on meeting her. I shared my fears and the dream with her and we vowed to remain by each other’s side always, no matter what the circumstances could be. I cannot think of a life without her now, not a life full of loneliness, never…

    Communication is the key to almost every problem and that’s what you did in the end. Though it was scary as I was reading story further and only thing in my mind was coming- what’s next is coming to haunt? Nice one.
