"Is it a dream or..." ... part1
After a long, hard day… all I wanted is a sound sleep. It was already 10PM and I had nothing to fill my tummy since lunch. I didn’t feel like preparing anything as I was too tired. However, my hungry stomach didn’t let me sleep. I strolled into the kitchen to see if there is anything. Then I quickly prepared omelet with those sleepy eyes. I was so hungry that, I stuffed it into my mouth, almost chocked myself in a hurry. Once I was satisfied, I went straight to the bed. I got sleep in no time…
“Hi Sunil…”, an elegant lady stopped me with a smile.
I had never seen her before. How does she know my name? “Hi…ah..” I was about to say something before she cut me short.
“wondering who am I? well, you don’t know me Sunil. But I know everything about you.”
Is it? And how is that, and why are you saying all this. Is this a trap or something? Where am I? I started wondering.
“don’t think too much Sunil. I am your friend and I am not here to hurt you. And this is not a trap” she giggled.
What! I didn’t say that. I mean, how could she read my thoughts. May be it was just her guess. I thought to myself. “Look ma’am, I don’t ..”
“shh… before you say anything, I want to tell you something. And yes, I can read your thoughts and it is not my guess..”
“Hey! Now you are freaking me out! get off from my way… who are you? what do you want?” I uttered at once.
“Calm down my dear. Don’t be nervous and please don’t get scared. You will wake yourself” she replied.
“Wake, what? What the hell are you talking about?”, now I was confused.
“Let me explain. But you have to promise me, you will not get scared. This is very important. I need your help and you need mine. I know this isn’t easy for you…”
I was even more confused now. The last thing I remember was that, I was trying to get some sleep. And now, I am in strange place and talking to a strange person. Am I dreaming? How can this be possible that I don’t remember anything that is related to where I am right now! How did I even get here! Where am I heading to?
“Sunil… “ my thoughts interrupted again by her voice. “Are you listening to me?”
“Yeah! I mean, the last thing I..” was about to tell what I was thinking…
“Yeah, I know. Don’t you remember what I said. I can read your thoughts? And BTW, yes you are dreaming. And don’t worry you are still dreaming…” she replied with the same smile.
“Hey cool down, don’t stress yourself… S-U-N-I…”
I woke up! I was breathing too fast as if I had just finished a sprint! I was sweating all over. I stood up and went to kitchen to get some water. I was feeling thirsty. Then I realized what had happened was just a dream. At first I thought, it was one strange stupid dream… But I was wrong!
