A Nightmarish Night
Dan awoke with a jolt, his body was wringing with sweat. “Was it real?” he thought. “No, it must have been a dream! I have to get some sleep. I’ve been tossing and turning all night. It is already 4:15 and I have to get up at six o’clock.”
Moments later his alarm sounded and he turned over and shut it off. “Wow! What a night! I am so glad it was just a dream, but it seemed so real. Now I must get on with reality.” He tried all morning to get the dream out of his mind, but the dream kept haunting him. “What did it mean? What was all that water and where was I?” The dream was so far fetched that he couldn’t have believed in it at all except that it felt so real, like he was really there. He had to tell someone. He had to share it before it overcame him. “I know, I’ll tell John. He’ll tell me what I need to do.” John was always deciphering dreams for people. He seemed to have a God-given gift to understand the symbols and how they played out. The only problem was that today was only Tuesday and he would not see his brother until the weekend, but by then it might be too late.
His business demanded so much concentration and he just couldn’t seem to focus. It just didn’t seem as important as understanding this dream. “What could it mean?”
“Dan!” called Susan.
Shaking himself out of a stupor, Dan replied, “Yeah!”
“What are you doing?” asked Susan.
“What do you mean? asked Dan.
“You have been staring into space for the last twenty minutes. Has something happened? Do you need to talk?” asked Susan.
“No, it’s just a crazy dream I had last night. I‘ll be all right.” said Dan, not wanting to share the details of the dream. He didn’t understand it himself so how could Susan help? She was always so quiet and kept to herself, yet she seemed really sensitive and attentive to her surroundings.
“Are you sure? I can listen. I’m pretty good at that.” said Susan, hoping to find out a little more about Dan. She really admired him and the way he kept himself. He was really a quiet and soft spoken person, yet he had a way of gaining respect from everyone around him. I guess you could say that he had a sense of destiny and one could see that he was going somewhere and that somewhere was going to be a good place to be. She definitely hoped that she would end up there also… Read the rest of Chapter 1.
