The Dreamer of Killings

Sephora Ackerman goes to sleep one night and has a nightmare of someone being killed. She doesn't know what to do. It's just a nightmare. She doesn't know why she is dreaming of this. She wakes up and hears the news talking about someone being killed. It can't be what she dreamt of. She listens more and everything is exactly the same. How is it possible? She dreamt of something that actually happened. She soon finds out that the woman's oldest son goes to school with her. What if she keeps having dreams of killings? What if the dreams won't stop until this killer is stopped?


1. Chapter 1 The FIrst Nightmare

I opened my eyes to creepy laughter filling the air. I looked around and saw that I was in a warehouse. Confused and scared I walked toward the laughter. The closer I got to it the more louder it got. A shelf was in front of me. I hid behind it and slowly looked around it. I was frozen. No matter how disgusting it was I couldn't look away. A guy wearing black clothes and a mask was standing over a woman. I couldn't tell who the woman was, but it looked like she had blonde hair. The guy had a knife and was repeatedly stabbing her. She was screaming and crying. Every time he stabbed her she got quieter.

I lifted my hand to my mouth. I felt wetness and I realized I was crying. The woman stopped making any noise. She was dead. The killer stood up and looked straight at me.


I woke up in my bed shaking and drenched in sweat. I could taste the salt from my tears. Why would I dream of that?  I was so confused and scared. I just had a nightmare of something I've never seen before. It's never that bad in movies. I got out of bed shakily and grabbed a towel. I started the shower and got in. I slowly stopped shaking. I got done in the shower and dried off. I found my favorite shirt that said I didn't do it and some skate shorts. I put them on and brushed the tangles out of my hair. I waited a couple of minutes to make sure no one would notice that something was wrong. 

I got up and headed to the kitchen. I can smell the eggs and bacon from the hallway. I walked into the kitchen. My mom kissed me on the cheek and said,"Mornin' sweetie."

I smiled and said,"Mornin' momma." Mom handed me a plate of eggs and bacon. "Thank you!" Mom smiled at me in return. While I eat my breakfast I hear the tv turned on the news.

"Today Mike Sager walked into his warehouse and found a woman dead." I paled. "The woman is Sarah Cabalero. Sources say that she was repeatedly stabbed." I swallowed the eggs in my mouth and pushed my plate away. How was this even possible?  There is now way it is the same as my dream. It just wasn't possible.

I looked out of the kitchen and saw a picture of Sarah on the tv. She has blonde hair.

Mom walked into the kitchen and said," You heard?" I nodded. "Doesn't she have 2 sons?" I nodded again. "Oh those poor boys. Doesn't one of them go to school with you?"

"Yeah, his name is Theodore. I have a couple of classes with him." I looked over at the clock and saw that I need to drive to school or I will be late. "I gotta get to school mom. See ya later. Love you!" I said quickly while giving mom and a hug and a kiss on the cheek. I walked over to dad in the kitchen and kissed him on the cheek. "See ya after school daddy. Love you!"

As I am running out the door mom and dad yell," Bye! Love you too!"

I threw my backpack into my car and started it. I backed up and drove to school. On my way to school the radio was talking about what happened with the woman. I started to feel sick and stopped on the side of the road. The images from the nightmare kept going through my head. I'm having a hard time breathing. I leaned my head against the wheel and tried to breath in and out slowly. After a couple of minutes of just breathing I started to calm down.

I turned my head just enough so I could see my radio and change it. One of my favorite songs came on. The Strays by Sleeping with Sirens.  I don't know why but every time I hear this song I get in a better mood. I lifted my head from the steering wheel and started to feel a little better. I put the blinker on and got back on the road. About 5 minutes later I pulled into the school parking lot. I turned off my car, grabbed my backpack, and got out.

I walked into the school went to my locker. I can see my best friend, Genevieve as I'm walking to my locker.

"Hey, sista. Did you see the news?" She asked.

"Yeah, it's awful." I said shakily.

I opened my locker and grabbed my books for my first 2 classes.

2 hours later

In both of my classes all anybody talked about was Sarah. Imagine my surprise when I saw Theodore in my first hour. And people were still saying things about it. I was so pissed of in first hour. How could everybody gossip about it when Theodore was right there. He could probably hear everything they said. Luckily, the teachers told the students to stop talking about that.

"Sephora Rose Ackerman! Are you even listening to me?" Gen said loudly.

"Yes, I am listening to every single word you say." I replied.

Gen raised her eyebrows. "Oh, really?" I nodded. "Then what was I talking about?"

"Umm...." I sputtered.

Gen rolled her eyes. "That's what I thought." Gen laughed after I smiled sheepishly at her. "Hey! Wait a second. That is so rude not listening to me."

I snorted, but she glared at me so I figured I should apologize. "Sorry. I was just thinking."

Gen looked at me worriedly. "Are you alright? You've been acting really strange today."

I smiled at her and said," Yeah, just didn't get that much sleep last night."

"Ok." Gen was still staring at me but she didn't look as worried. The one minute bell rang and she dragged me to our 4th hour. We were the last people to get into the classroom. The teacher raised his eyebrows at us and we smiled sheepishly. We went to out seats in the middle of the room and waited for Mr. Bard to start out lesson in History.

I got my notebook out and doodle in it. I didn't even realize what I was drawing until I heard someone gasp. I looked up and saw Theodore looking at the drawing. I looked back down at my drawing and saw that it was a drawing of the killer. I couldn't see any facial features, the mask covered everything.

Theo (I'm just going to call him this because it sounds better) ran out of the room. Half the class looked at me confused while the other half looked at the now open door. I paled and ran out after him. I looked around and saw him turn a corner.

"Theo!" I yelled loudly running after him. "Stop!" I ran around the corner and saw Theo on the floor shaking. "Theo." I whispered.

His head snapped up at me. His eyes were filled with so much terror that it killed me. "How do you know about the mask?"

"What?" I said confusingly.

He grabbed my arms and said," How do you know about the mask? Only the detectives and my family know about it."

I paled and said," I don't know what you are talking about." I got up and started to turn around.

Theo stood up and grabbed my arm. "Tell me. Or I will call the cops on you."

I swallowed and turned around. Tears started to flow down my face as I said," I had a nightmare last night." Theo looked confused so I continued. "The nightmare was of what happened." I sobbed.

Theo pulled me to him and held me. I saw a couple of tears on his face through blurry eyes. I laid my head on his chest and put my arms around his waist. I slowly calmed down and he let go of me. "Want to get out of here?"

I nodded happily. We walked out the door. "Who's car are we taking?" I asked.

Theo looked at me and said," I didn't drive today. My dad dropped me off."

"Ok, we can take mine." I said. I leaded him to my car and we hopped in. "Where do you want to go?"

"Do you want to get some coffee?" He asked.

I nodded and drove to the nearest coffee place. I turned my car off and reached for the door. Theo grabbed my hand and said," You are going to tell me everything, right?"

I nodded hesitantly and he let me go. We walked into the coffee shop and found a booth to sit in. Well, here goes nothing.
