I walked along the path, noticing that the ground was covered with colorful flowers. For the first time, I could walk in public without being recognized. I shoved my hands into the pockets of my pants, looking around.
What was I doing here?
People walked past me, barely noticing that I was even there. It was strangely satisfying to have people walk by without paying me a second glance.
With a frown, I began to walk along. As I did so, I suddenly saw the figure of a woman approaching me. Her silhouette moved in an intoxicating manner, and the grace of her movements brought my own to a stop.
As the woman got closer, I noticed that she was extremely beautiful. Something about her features sparked an interest within the depths of my soul. Finally, she was near enough for me to take a proper look at her, and when I did - I gasped.
She was the most beautiful person I had ever seen.
She held her hand out to me.
"Come on," she smiled.
"Where are we going?" I frowned.
"Come on, Michael. We're going to a place where no one can find us," she spoke, her voice was like the purest silk. "Where no one knows who you are,"
Suddenly, I heard people screaming behind me. They were screaming my name.
They had recognized me.
August 24th, 1987.
I awoke with a start, gasping. I looked around the room, and realized that I was at home, and that what I had just seen - was merely a dream. I ran my fingers through my hair, trying to steady my breathing before someone knocked at my bedroom door.
"Come in," I breathed. The door opened, and in walked Janet.
"Mike, everyone's-" she stopped mid sentence when she saw how distressed I looked. "What happened?" her eyes widened.
"I....had a dream," I shook my head. "And it was so real..."
"Oh, I've had that before," she laughed. "Sometimes we mix dreams up with reality," she shrugged.
But her words could not soothe the uneasiness that I felt deep within me.
"Yeah," I mumbled before Janet snapped her fingers in front of my face.
"Relax!" she giggled. "It was just a dream!"
August 24th, 2018.
You gasped, sitting up in your bed with a start. Beads of sweat dripped down your forehead as your heart pounded in your chest. It took you a moment before you realized that it was all a dream - the imagines that you had seen in your mind, were all a part of a dream.
You shook your head before your bedroom door opened, revealing your mother.
"I've been trying to get you to wake up for the past hour," she shook her head. "Get up, or you'll be late for school,"
With a frown, you threw the blankets off of you as your mother walked up to you.
"You're sweating," she held her hand to your forehead. "And you have a bit of a fever,"
"Yeah," you mumbled, still in shock from your dream.
"Stay home," she sighed. "Rest," she said before walking out of the room.
But you still couldn't get over how real that dream felt.
I'll tell you a secret, it wasn't just a dream ;)
