The night after the dream
“Lily, Lily come and get your breakfast” her mum shouted. Lily looked serious as she came into the kitchen. “ I’ll do my pack up mum if you want”.
“Are you all right Lily?” mum asked, “you never do your sandwiches”.
Lily smiled good naturedly, “ I suppose it’s about time I grew up and helped you more” she said to her mum. “Lily, are you feeling OK, this isn’t the Lily I know and love” said mum.
“I feel different” Lily said, “ I had a funny dream last night and well; I just feel odd, like I’ve grown up suddenly.”
