Dream

He grew tired as he walked, so he stopped and sat down where he stood. The ground was a hard, red, and cracked soil. He took a deep breath and saw his surroundings. The air had a smell to it, it was pleasant, cool and clean. The hills had gotten closer so he knew that this was not just some illusion. The sky was a weird green. It was oddly beautiful. He had seen northern lights before, but this sky was not that - it was just the sky, as far as he could see, just green. And suddenly, he started falling back and just as his back was about to hit the ground...

Finn jerked up, wide awake. He was no stranger to waking up from this dream, but he was certainly not a fan of it. It was the third time he had woken up from this strange setting in this dream. The first time it happened was the previous week, where he felt tied to the ground and had a view of the sky. The second time was earlier this week, where he could walk around for a few seconds before he woke up. But now, he had walked for hours, and when he woke up, he felt tired. He had even pinched himself when he was walking, but he only felt the pinch, and did not wake up then.

"Was this lucid dreaming?" he asked himself, as he turned to his night table to check the time. 5:34 am. He was awake an hour and a half earlier than he intended to, but for some reason he felt wide awake. He got out of bed and decided to shower and start his day. As he stood in the shower and let the water hit him, he was still confused and lost for an explanation. This felt like a recurring dream, but if so, what did it mean? He could not recall any traumatic experience from his childhood or something that was bugging his mind from a recent time that could explain this strange sighting in his dream. Nonetheless, he decided to move past this and continue his day. He caught up on his TV show while having a sandwich. Although he had wished for more sleep, he felt perfectly energized. In fact, more energized than he did every morning.

"These new eggs must be that great" he chuckled to himself.

As he went back to his bedroom to get his bag, for the first time since that morning, his eyes met the floor and noticed something alarming. He touched it. Red soil. For a second, he froze, and then rushed to the washroom and grabbed the sweatpants he had slept in the previous night, from the laundry basket. On the rear, he saw specks of red dust.

His vision was not a dream. He had, indeed, been somewhere.

snowview03: This is the first book I have read on this app and I loved it! When I read the title I thought about the hunger games, but this novel is so much more.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone. The writing style is almost broken- sentences move into each other awkwardly, and are filled with an excess of "filler words", lik...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story. It still has some parts that are a little rough in terms of grammar, punctuation, and word usage, but it's still an awesome story. I love how detai...

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Caryn Moy: Love this series! Very well written, great plot and characters! I love time travel mysteries and this was different from anything I've read in the past! Bring on the sequel!!! I need to see the Compact get squashed!

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Alani Foreigner: I absolutely loved how you created this story. It isn't like the other cliché stories I've ever read. I had just started reading it yesterday and just had to finish it. The main characters are grotesquely awesome and I fell in love with them. If you're into fantasy and stuff I can guarantee that ...

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...
