Death In The Dream

By Aram Hmid

Scifi / Mystery

The start

This work of fiction is inspired by the anime series and the novel "Another", and the american film "Nightmare on Elm street" .The characters names are Japanese.

... A life that hides the known, the destiny which we wish to live, from the moment we were born, we cried because of the new air in our chests, an air that we grow up with and we can't abandon. They say life is a piano keys, white ones are happy moments, black ones are sad, but when you play them together, you make ... The melody of life.


- Oh, damn you bitch, can't you watch your hands ! *yelling*

- May you show me some respect here ! 

-Shut the fuck up whores like you deserve death

... That's how he used to wake up everyday, not with a sweet mother's voice. His parents fight every morning, every moment. His father used to beat his mom unreasonably. But sometimes it does make sense when you know that his father is not his real one. His dad passed away a couple of years ago when their mansion was set on fire, they could've rescued him and his mom but the dad had no chance to escape and got burned under the destroyed house. The police closed the case quickly saying that by a miss of clues they couldn't find out who was behind the crime, and they must believe it to be nothing more than an accident. 

... He got up hardly of his bed trying to avoid his parents fight noises and walked to the bathroom. Opened the tap and let the water falls down on his head like if it was wiping his dark memories. Back to his room he put his clothes on and took his bag on his shoulder. 

*phone ringing* 

- Hello 

- Wohhoooo lazy ass white boy still sleeping damn you man you told me to come early to prepare you your shit but you still messing on your bed masturbating like always Ahh you really are weird Hiru 

- You're done ?

- Huuh Hurry up would you !

- Yeah, be right there 

... Hiru hang up the phone and hurried to the train station. Chose a sit near the window and putting headphone, he's trying hard to forget. Suddenly, he saw a beautiful girl sitting, reading a book, her hair was black and long to her hips, her skin was white and she had such a pink plump lips with plump red cheeks too. Hiru doesn't remember anything at that moment except her, all he knew was that he couldn't get his eyes off, her beauty was beyond imagination. The train arrived to its destination, in the overcrowd he lost her, but quickly he remembered that he must hurry to his school.

*calling voice* 

- Hiru ¡¡ 

... His friend Yoshiyuki is Hiru's closest friend, the only thing that relates them is having a similar story, Yoshiyuki lost his family in a mysterious conditions, given that his father was a police officer, the government tried to hide the truth from public media, however, rumors started to spread about a police officer's family that was murdered all of a sudden in their house, the corpses were found after three days of the crime, and according to the doctors report, despite the scars all over the bodies, the main cause of death was a sharp weapon pushed into the left eye piercing the brain. A boy hid in the closet saved his life, Yoshiyuki.


- Hey drama man

- Shut up Yoshi.

- HeHeHe ,,,


- Hi Hiru

- Sensei !

- How is my little Hiru 

... She was holding his cheeks getting his face closer to her breast. Akanemori is the headmaster assistant, she's known by her perversion with students even with girls.

...- Ahh Sensei .. *blush* 

Yoshi whispered : how lucky he is to see those magnificent boobs closely

~ Come on man to the show room the contest is about to begin

- Ahaa Hiru you have a performance 

- Yes Sensei... And .. I'm supposed to be in the show room right now .. Hah *hardly breathing* 

- I see, did I bother you Hiru *pout* 

- Ahh at all 

- Give me that cute cheek to kiss it *kissu*

... The contest began, on the big screen in the school the performances of the students were shown. Now it's Hiru turn, he appeared in a romantic scene confessing his love to a hot chick.

- .. Sora, I know we've met only for few times, and maybe you didn't notice how much care I provided you with in the last period, ... But I think it's the time to tell you that my feelings to you are more than a normal friendship

- Ohh, but you know that I already have my lover, and I don't want to change him with anybody, and thank you for all what you did for me.

- A lover ¿ ... You mean that bastard that I killed yesterday

- Huuh !! *shocked*

- Yeah honey I killed him to be with you only

... Suddenly half of the girl's face turned into a monster, ugly, full of holes and the left eye got bigger with red blood coming out of it.

... The screen was turned off, and Akanemori took the mic saying : Sorry, a technical problem happened, we'll work on fixing it as soon as possible. May students go back to their classrooms. Hiru Yoshida please come to the headmaster office.

- What happened ?

- I don't know, really

- The headmaster wants you

- Yeah I heard that, we better go and check

... They hurried to the headmaster, in the hall leading to the office they met Akanemori, she looked pretty serious this time compared to how she usually looks.

- Sorry Yoshi, only Hiru is allowed, you can wait for him

- I see, no problem then I'll wait

... He entered.

- Hi Hiru

- Hi Mr.Fukhito

- I will get through the topic without presentations. You know that we watch every performance in the drama club before we put it to the students, in case of performances that contain offensive language or dirty behavior, so we don't allow them. But in your case we couldn't refuse your scene directly so we had to ...

... Hiru stopped him and said : you mean you faked the technical problem ? 

- Well, we had to Hiru, your show is so dangerous

- What the hell are you talking about, what's wrong with it !?

- Tell me first, where did you get the idea of the scene ?

- One of my father's old books

- It's the old phenomenon, "Yumenonakade shi" Death in the dream". Ten years ago, there was a beautiful girl known by her intelligence, her brother was killed by one of the teachers in this school, but this teacher ran away and we don't know anything about him until now. This girl thought that the students helped the teacher to get away, so she decided to avenge her brother. Her spiritual rage and hate gave her a super power to transform into a half monster. This monster appears in the students dreams and kill them while they're sleeping, which leads to their death in reality. One by one all the students at that time died. One year later the school opened again, we were afraid that the disaster will happen again, but it didn't, so we've concluded that this phenomenon happens only for students who know about the story. If they saw your show this school will turn into a mountain of corpses.

... Hiru was pissed off, his eyes can tell he wasn't interested by what the headmaster was saying.

- And you think I will believe this bullshit ! Sorry for not being that stupid sir

... He left shutting the door.
