a 100-word storyPin It Now!
She picks up the dry cleaning. Then she’s in a grade school classroom, and her book report is due but she can’t find it. She looks out the wide windows, and a strange sound comes to her: heavy, noisy breathing, rising up through the floor, falling through the windows from a yellow sky.
Now she's in a forest, and all is black. The sound gets louder, breathing, breathing. Then the breath catches, becomes uneven. She runs, runs in fear, deathly fear, fear of death.
She’s in a dream.
She is a dream.
A dream that dies with the dreamer’s awakening.
