That night before my life changed forever, I had a dream that I was sitting in a room filled with everything I have ever wanted in my life. From the little pink doll house I wanted when I was five, to the new car I want now. All of it was in the room sitting there, but I couldn’t touch it. I could only look at it in longing, but every time I moved to touch something it would disappear.
Then my parents appeared smiling at me in the threshold of this gigantic room. I got up and ran to them. They hugged me tight, then they let me go.
My dad reached out towards the table and picked up a beautiful sterling silver locket with carvings on it. He grabbed my hand and put the locket in it. It didn’t disappear, so I reached out and touched the doll house. It also didn’t disappear. I could touch everything in the room.
I ran back over to my parents and tried to hug them but I couldn’t, I went right through them. They looked sad, and my mother started crying, then they disappeared.
