‘But Doctor it is real! I know I saw it! It was is in my room, I have proof this time!’ ‘I’ve had enough! This is the last time you came to me saying that you got attacked in your sleep, or almost died!‘ ‘But it is true! I woke up with claw marks on my chest!’ ‘I don’t want to hear it anymore!’

He closed the door right in front of my eyes. This was the last person I could go to… You see, I keep having these strange dreams… It started this month… I got in a car accident and after that my dreams kept hunting me… I started noticing it when I was at the hospital, the doctors told me that I had bad brain damage. They thought I saw those things because of a concussion. But why could I feel it? Why could I feel every touch?

I came home and started to write them all down, maybe there was a way to avoid these dreams… ‘There has to be an way! I just know it!’

My first dream:
I was awake, just sitting in my bed. Nothing weird at al… Things got creepy when a voice started calling for me. I stepped out of bed and started looking for were the voice came from. The darkness scared me, but the thing waiting for me in the darkness would be even scarier. I came in the room of my parents where I met a the cold air blowing though the room… Shivers went down my spine, I did not know if it was because of the cold or the sleep… And then I saw it, the balcony door was open. At that moment I heard the voice calling again. ‘Monty… come to me…’ It sounded like a whisper, driven by the wind. Slowly I made my way to the balcony… But when I got there I saw nothing, nobody, just the darkness. I walked to the edge to see if somebody was standing in the backyard… But when I leaned over to see what was down, someone pushed me and I fell from the balcony. It almost seemed like the falling wouldn’t stop. And when I finally touched the ground, I woke up.

Second dream:
I woke up in a forest, it was dark. I was scared. Scared of the dark… Scared for what the things that saw me in the dark… Scared to be alone… I made my way through the darkness, and when I looked up to the sky, I saw the stars above me, I also the tops of the trees above me, it made me feel tiny… Like a prey… I attempted to put that word out of my mind, but it wouldn’t leave. The feeling of being watched came to me. My stomach turned when I realized that I might not be wrong about the situation. Slowly, I turned my head around… Then my body… I opened up my eyes to see, nothing but trees… A feel of relief rushed over me and I realized I had been holding my breath for far too long. I left out a sigh and turn back when a drop of liquid spilled over my shirt, first I thought It was starting to rain, but when I looked up, there were no clouds at all… I slowly looked at my shoulder… When I saw it, it hit me, it was a drop of slime… I followed the place where it might had come from … Then I saw something in the darkness, hiding within the tree tops… I didn’t know what it was, but I was scared and my first instinct was to run and hide! I could hear the branches break behind me, it was like if it was chasing me using the trees as a path. When it jumped I could feel the ground shake and I almost fell to the ground. At that moment the beast took a jump and pinned me down on the ground, it lifted its paw and I could only watch and hope not to die. When it came down I screamed out of pain, the slash was so powerful that the beast had thrown me against a trees. At that moment, everything went black for a second and I woke up…

I had written down these dreams in a note book to keep track of them. It is like a diary for dreams. But it sometimes gives me weird thoughts you know; What if I already had these dreams before the accident? If so, then… Why? What in the world would be wrong with me?

I laid down the pen, the silence in my room was almost frightening, the darkness had taken over the light and I sat there all alone in the black void what we call night. I stood up out of my chair and switched on my lamp. Whilst making my way downstairs I noticed the clock on the wall, it was almost midnight. I let out a sigh, there was no way that I would be able to sleep tonight… Not like this… I made myself some coffee. I know it is not good to drink coffee at night time, but… I… can better stay awake, those dreams will leave eventually, right?

I had woken up on the couch, nothing happened tonight. Maybe it was normal after all and these dreams would leave me alone. My mother and father had already left for work, I would probably have to go to college as well and continue my studies. The thing is, I didn’t even know what I was studying for again, my mind was a mess. I’m a mess… If I could just remember, then maybe this would be so much easier for me to handle… It gave me the feeling of loneliness, of not even knowing who I am or what my life used to look like or who my friends where… With that feeling in my chest, tears begun blurring my sight.

It’s okay buddy, you still have me. I looked over to see a white cat with black ears sitting next to me on the couch. I must have become mad, there was no other explanation other than that! Slowly, I stood up and walked backwards to leave. ‘No need to be scared, I am here to help.’ ‘Help with what?’ I asked the cat. ‘With your nightmares of course.’ ‘But how can you?’ I paused there in mid-sentence. ‘It will be morning soon, there is not much time.’ Said the cat. ‘What are you talking about?’ I replied. ‘She will be back for you tomorrow night, I’ll come as fast as I can to help you.’ ‘Who is she?’ I asked. ‘Beware Monty, beware…’ It’s face started to run, like… It was made out of wax. Drips of white and black covered the couch. When looking around, the cat was not the only thing that seemed to melt. The whole room turned into a goo, all colours blended like one and became this awful looking brown. At that moment I felt that that wasn’t the only thing happening, I was sinking away in all the liquid substance that oozed from the walls and from myself?! I screamed for help, it was not just the things around me, it was me who was turning to goo. I felt helpless as I saw that one of my eyeballs left my skull and joined the cat whose skull was floating on the liquid.

I woke up, screaming on the couch covered in a blanket. It took me a second to realize what happened. By that thought I started to laugh hysterically. ‘It was just a dream, what else would it have been?! I am so stupid! These things can’t be real! It can’t… Right?!’ I felt a bit depressed, the thought of never being able to dream normally was making me feel so sad. It hurts…

When looking over I saw a piece of paper lying on the coffee table. I was just able to reach it from the couch. On the paper there was a piece of text; My mother had written that she would be back early in the afternoon so we could have dinner together and maybe watch a movie. It was nice that she wanted to spend more time with me after what had happened. My father on the other hand, had to work late and hard, I have respect for him.

Hours had passed, my mother and I watched a movie. She said that I really used to like it and that it was one of my favorites. But watching this movie felt like seeing it for the first time, it was weird but maybe in a way nice? Reliving a moment… Yeah, that is indeed nice… But sadly my mother hoped to bring back some good memories with it, but that did not happen. I felt a bit useless but only time can tell, maybe tomorrow will give me a new chance, then there will be a new day of trying to regain back what is mine, or what used to be mine.

Night fell and it was time for me to go. I changed into my pyjama and noticed a strange man sitting on the end of my bed. ‘Who are you?’ I asked him. ‘Fear not my friend, I have spoken to you in your dreams before and I am here to help you.’ I was dumbfound, there was no way, no way that this was reality. ‘Why the hell would I believe anything you say?’ The man stood up, he was a lot taller than I thought he would have been. ‘Because I am the only one that can save you and get rid of these nightmares, do you hear me you brat?!’ I turned around and opened the door that led to the balcony. ‘Hey, what are you doing?’ ‘I am going to fly.’ He grabbed my arm. ‘Do you have any idea what you’re doing right now? This is not a nightmare, I’m real and you are going to listen to me, do you understand?!’ ‘Alright, so what if that is true, then how do you expect me to believe that a human being can do that.’ ‘Because I am not.’ I froze for a second, that could not be real right? ‘My name is Deron, I am a Dream reaper, to be exact, your Dream reaper. My species lives of feeding of human dreams to survive and each of us is bonded to a human by their souls to do so. What is happening to you is that a female reaper is stealing your dreams in order to feed her offspring, that is why you can’t tell the difference between reality and nightmares.’

I looked him in his eyes and said; ‘Too bad, I don’t believe you.’ I walked away to the end of the balcony. From here I saw almost my whole neighbourhood, I turned back to face him and spread my arms. ‘See you tomorrow night.’ He ran towards me trying to save me but it was too late, I lend backwards and my feet had left the balcony. I felt like I could fly, but in harsh reality my body touched the cold ground and my vision became black.

‘Police have found the body of the 18 year old Monthy Davis in the backyard of his adoption parents. The police think that it was an attempt of suicide. The 18 old Monthy who got in a car accident 2 months ago has lost his memories after that. Police think that after regaining his memories from his past about his parents, he might have gotten in to an depression and jumped to his death. It was known that his father used to beat up the boy or lock him up without food or water. This so far is just a theory. My name is Jenna and this was the late night news.’

This is very well written, it is a perfect combination of eerie/morbid and yet somehow beautiful. I want to read more, especially after that ending!

At the moment my sister and I are working on a sheet with information about the Dream Reaper species and how they would look like.

Also if a lot of people like this story I might write more on different topics. ^^
