『 A dream's reality 』


1. ~ One of many nightmares ~

Thunder was heard across the fields. The wind was so strong it was pushing me back. I ran through the fields looking for refuge. My hair was flying in my face but, in the distance I could see a very weird tall tree. I've never seen any trees like that before but, without a second thought, I ran toward it. Behind me, I felt something chasing me and the closer it got, the more the storm became more reckless. I ran under the tree and hugged the trunk as hard as I could. As soon as I touched the tree, the storm turned violent. The wind turned hurricane strong, that it made my clothes rip and made the branches and the leaves of the tree to dance the salsa ferociously. I was squinting at that point so I barely could see anything but in the distance I saw a dark figure approach me. Tears swelled in my eyes as I tried so hard to keep them open.

"You really thought you could escape?" The dark figured laughed "You can't escape me, I will find you and your little friends." For some reason the black shadow wasn't affected by the storm at all and seemed to walk so easily through it all. Everything began to stop and things began to quite down but the only thing I could hear was the dark figures laugh, a deep raspy laugh, as it got louder and louder. All of a sudden lighting struck between both of us and everything went black.

I woke up gasping for air. My right hand to my chest. My heart felt like it was running a Marathon. I took my left hand and wiped the sweat from my forehead. I was sweating a lot I felt as if I just took a shower. I took a second to catch my breath and calm down.

Man I thought, this nightmares have been getting worse by the day!

I stood up from my bed and walked to the bathroom. I opened the sink to warm water and washed my face. This usually makes me go to sleep faster. I dried my face with a towel that was hanging beside the mirror and looked at my reflection. My black long hair was everywhere and my eyes had bags under them. Ugh. Another day, another nightmare.

I went back to bed and laid down. I didn't notice before but there was a storm going outside. It wasn't as bad as the one in my dream but it was bad to keep you awake at night. A chill ran through my spine and I got reminded of the dream I just had several moments ago. This wasn't the first time I've dreamt a nightmare. I have had many nightmares ever since my 15th birthday, two months ago. It also isn't the first time I dreamt of the black shadow. I don't know, what it is but I call it "shadowy". It seemed to fit so I couldn't help myself.

It seemed every time I have a dream with "shadowy" it's always in the most dangerous situations! Couldn't it be a nice picnic? Or a nice walk in the park?

I was on the brink of falling asleep till I thought of something. In my dream, I saw what seemed to be an enormous tree with weird noodle looking branches and circle shaped leaves. Which, hands down, never seen before. It looked so fake but real. What is also weird is that I hid under tree during a thunder storm. Yup, a thunder storm and tree, NOT a very good match. I made a very long groan and slowly started fading into the magical world of nightmares.

I woke up by the sounds of my sister, Sune, knocking loudly on my door. " DO YOU WANNA BUILD A SNOWMAN??" Sune sang "C'mon lets go and play-!"

"That is so OLD!" I interrupted

I heard her squeak and her footsteps as she ran down the hall. I stood from my bed feeling so tired. It's a school day so, we have to get up early. I hated school not because I hated learning or wanting to sound cool but because it always made me wake up so tired and sleepy. Honestly, I can't be the only one who thinks school should start at 11 or 12. Right?

I changed into some shorts and a long sleeve stripped shirt. I put some black boots that reached up a little above the ankle and did my hair in a braid. Ta-da! I tots got my looks on! Wait, who says "tots" anymore? I walked to the door and opened it just in time to see my mom pass by. She had her grey suit on and her matching gray skirt. Her red hair was tied in a bun and had black high heels. She had no makeup so her freckles were visible. Her blue/green eyes were almond shaped like and had perfect eyebrows. Her face always looks so happy and bright, you'd think she rarely gets mad but, when she does she turns into a monster. You'd never expect anything like that from a sweet person but like I said she rarely gets mad but, if she does, RUN. She looked stunning as always. I quickly move beside her and kissed her on the cheek.

" Good morning mom!" I said lovingly

"Oh, Merly! Good morning!" She said with a warm smile on her face. Merly, is just a nickname she picked out for me. My real name is Merlin. Don't make fun of me.

"Did you have a nightmare last night?" She said curious

"What! No! I didn't have any dreams whatsoever." I nervously said " you know I'd tell you if I have... another dream."

"Yeah, I know but it's weird how there's still bags under your eyes" she gently brushed my eye, "has something been bothering you?" My mom knows when something's up with me. She reads me like a book which surprises me because I'm not so easy to analyze.

"Don't worry mom I'll tell you when ever something is bothering me, I always do right?" I said trying to end the conversation.

She studied me for a second and said," I know" she nealed to me till we were the same height and put her forehead on mine. She looked straight into my eyes as she said," I trust you Merly, whatever you do or say I know it's for a reason. You would never do something only for yourself." She stood up straight and walked for the door. I touched my forehead and smiled. I love my mom, she is always so caring and charming. I secretly want to become like her, she doesn't know it but whenever she helps someone in need, she looks just like a super hero. At least for me she does.

I moved into the kitchen and opened up the fridge. I took out some bread, ham, lettuce, and mayo and laid them on the counter table. I made a quick sandwich to eat in the car while we drove to school. Just as I was about to step outside the kitchen, my step father intervened. He was wearing only shorts and his hair was a mess.

"Oh hey Merly," he said casually

"Ugh, what do you want Daniel" I said in disgust

"Oh nothing! Nothing! No need to be rude." He said innocently " Just wanted to know if my favorite daughter had any bad dreams." I knew he was mocking my mom. I wanted so bad to punch him but I knew if I did, I'd be the one getting in trouble not him so I let it go and said," Aww, I'm so glad you care!" I grabbed my sandwich I prepared and left it on my hands for him to grab. "Here for my loving caring STEP father I made this."

"Huh?" He looked very confused but without a word he reached for it. I quickly moved my hand and smashed the sandwich on his shirt. I quickly turn around before he even realizes what has happened. I grab my backpack from the couch and ran. As I opened the door I turned around and said cheerfully," you shouldn't be so sloppy and use your shirt as a plate." I laughed and closed the door before he could say anything else. I ran for my mom's car and acted like nothing ever happened.

I know it was very rude of me but I hated his guts and he hated mine so meh. Besides I have had many things he'd done to me, this was only pay back. For example, when I was six, he told me that around summer time was when monsters came out of beds and ate little girls such as myself and if something ate me he wouldn't be sad. Of course, I was traumatized about beds but mad too because who says that to a six year old?! I hated him ever since.

I entered the car and sat in the front seat. My sister looked so adorable with her two ponytails and her cute blue shoes and a sweater that said "Im cute, admit it" and her pink skirt underneath. She is six years old and is going to 1st grade. I put on my seat belt and my mom started the car and we drove off.
