My heart starts beating increasingly fast. I can't breathe. It's feels like I'm going to faint from all the stress and adrenaline. We're surrounded with no escape what so ever this could be the end for us , but I try my best to be brave , brave for THEM.
Suddenly I wake up confused about what just happened , it felt so real I was unable to tell if this was reality or not , but then I realize that it was all just a dream.
"Is everything alright dear"
I hear a voice say as I'm trying to awake from my slumber , It's my mom she enters my room and takes a seat next to me on my bed. In a soft and calming voice she says.
"Angela , I'm getting worried about these dreams you're having , it seems like it's getting worse"
I look at her and say "Mom , it's just dreams there's nothing for you to be worried about , I'm fine"
Or at least that's what I thought. There's a moment of silence until she speaks again.
"So , tomorrow is the big day , prom are you excited?" she asks with a massive smile on her face.
I wasn't really keen on going to prom , but I agreed to going because my mom said that it would be the best night of my high school life , and she would hate it for me to regret not attending.
"Yes , mom I'm looking forward to it" I answered her.
Her face light up with pure happiness , and she kisses my forehead as she is about to leave my room. Beep - beep my phone rings it's an incoming video call from my friend Jay , my only friend actually. We haven't been friends for long , but what I know is that she's been by my side ever since we became friends , she supports me and she's everything I wanted in a friend.
I answered the call "Gooood morning sunshine!" She says with excitement.
I knew what her excitement was about prom , obviously and to top it all off we are going together.
"Hey , hey , heeeey , someone seems to be in a good mood about tomorrow" I said with a smirk.
"Dude , why wouldn't I be!? Didnt you hear? There's going to be a opening performance at prom , and I'm not telling you who it is , you'll have to go and see for yourself" she said.
Suddenly I get this frown thinking about him , she immediately noticed and asks me "You still upset about what happened?
Obviously I am , i mean the guy i love moved far away and it feels like we are drifting apart due to the distance , but I knew deep down that it would come to this heartbreaking point even though I tried being hopeful for us.
I took a deep breath and said "I'll explain everything to you later today when I see you"
, "Yeah , no problem at all we still have to do a few things together , See you later. Love you , bye!" Jay says before ending the call.
I ran myself a hot bath and realized that I was alone at home. As i enter the kitchen i see a note from my mom on the kitchen counter table saying "Sorry , for leaving so suddenly but I had to go to the office quick. I'll be home soon I love you!"
As I'm sitting in the bathtub I can't seem to get the images of the dream i had this morning from flashing like flashbacks , out of my head.
Then I get that feeling once again , like I'm suffocating. Everything in front of me seems blurry , my body paralyzed. Then I see these hideous thin black long clawed hands touch me on my shoulders and push me with incredible strength down into the water. I try to scream , but I can't utter a word or sound , I can't move what's happening to me? I close my eyes and think to myself that it's just a dream , I wait a few seconds till i open my eyes and whatever it was it's gone.
Immediately I sat up and tried to catch my breath trying to dry the water from my eyes. I nervously look around to see if whatever almost drowned me was still there. I dry myself and place a towel around me. Still shaken by what just happened I peek out into the hallway to make sure that I was alone.
Slowly I take a step further one step at a time , then bang!! I scream at the sudden noise knowing well that nobody else was here with me. I go into the direction of where the noise had came from. I see nothing only a picture of me and my mom on the floor smashed into bits and pieces. I immediately run to check the doors if all of the doors were locked. To my surprise all the doors were locked , but who could have came in here and break this?
I get a notification on my phone and it made me jump with fright. It was my friend Jay , I open her text and it says "im outside open up" I rushed to the door and felt so relieved to see her.
I explain to her what just happened and she says "Maybe it's those dumb kids pranking people again"
"She could be right" i thought to myself because there are kids known to love playing pranks and scaring those who were alone at home , but a part of me didn't believe that it was them , it was someone else or something else.
