4. Dream

I open my eyes to blinding light and quickly clamp them shut again. Slower this time allowing my eyes to adjust to my surroundings, I peer out into the room.

People are laid in hospital beds lined up in long rows, each with their own life support. I don't see anyone other than myself awake. 

Pulling off the wires attached to myself I swing my legs out of bed clamping my hands on the bedside cabinet beside me to steady myself.

As I move through what is presumably a ward I can't see any movement, just still lifeless bodies in long lines like something you might expect to see in a horror movie.

That's when I see his face. My father, asleep on one of the hospital beds, I rush to his side but that is when I hear the door opening. Someone in a white lab coat enters the room.

I need to get out of here.

I can hear them walking down the long line of beds, a pen scratching on paper as each resident is checked.

That's when they reach my bed. I know it must me my bed, as I am not there, I am the only one not there. The person in the white lab coat gasps and drops their clipboard running from the room.

I don't stick around to see what would happen next.

I walk as fast as I can to what I assume is a door, hauling it open I step out into a dimly lit corridor and try to see a way out of here.

There is a light at the end of the corridor and in spite of my current circumstances I decide to head towards it - there is no point trying to find an escape route in the pitch black, in a place you don't know.

I hesitantly step into a room I can only describe as a library. Books fill every available space and a large map of a ship is hung on the wall, but it is not any ship it is something greater, something of magnificent design.

That's when the bolt slides shut on the door and I turn to where I hear footsteps.

"Hello Haidee, I thought it was you"
