Nightmares

I laughed at myself when I heard myself saying, "Nightmares aren't true." I think anyone would have laughed at the thought of that. How is it possible that nightmares will come true? They are nightmares for a reason.

I can tell you about my nightmare, but I think you might get scared. Oh, alright, I'll tell you anyways.

A trickle of water fell down from above and landed on my forehead. I cringed. I wanted to brush it away, but I was afraid of what I'll see. I looked forward to see a light in front of me. Now most people would run towards it, but I ran away. Don't ask me why because I don't know why I did that. I turned the corner to see the hallway in my house. I knew that the furthest room to the right was mine and I could easily get there even with my eyes closed. I didn't need my eyes to be closed, however, since it was dark anyways. I put my hand out and felt for the usual texture, a bumpy one. I could feel the dent and hill my whole way through until I nearly reached my room. There was a wet spot. I was afraid to look at what I had just felt and continued walking with my wet fingers leading the way. Once I reached my room I quickly ran in and turned on the light. It was probably the worst mistake I ever made. Inside was a dog with red eyes staring back at me. It didn't bark or howl, it just stared.

"Nice doggie, good doggie." It stared back at me. I was about to move back out of my room when I felt something drip on my shoulder. Looking up I saw an arm. I wanted to scream, but my voice wouldn't make a sound. Instead I heard the sounds of very quiet foot steps above me. This time I ran out of the room and out into the streets. The attic window to my house was lit up by the small lightbulb in the middle of the room. A man stood staring out at me. The dog I saw before stared out the window right underneath the man.

I ran. I ran for my life. I seemed to be going nowhere. I just ran in circles around my house.

"Priscilla, wake up."

I blinked open my eyes to see my roommate standing next to my bed. Her head was hovering above my face and strands of her hair touched me, tickling my face.

"I'm up, was I screaming again?" She nodded with a solemn face.

It wasn't my first time, I'll tell you this much.

"Priscilla, I will be going out for the night, so please take care of yourself." I nodded and watched her walk out of my room. She turned back right before she closed the door and gave me one last small smile before leaving me alone for the rest of the night. I tried to call several friends over to stay the night with me, all but one said no.

"Priscilla, very last minute, but for the sake of your mental stability, I'm here, with pizza." I laughed. I loved him. He was hilarious and he will be my roommate for the night.

"Shall we go rest after we eat then? You'll be staying in the guest room."

"We shall." With that, we headed to the kitchen to enjoy our meal.
