A Dreamer


You wake up, go to the bathroom and look at the mirror… This is a daily ritual to you, me and to everyone before starting our day… but today, I want you to know how my ritual changed my day or… my life? I am still dazed... is this a dream? Or is it really happening???

I woke up. Went to the bathroom. Looked at the mirror. ‘Hmm, I must shave today...’. Had a quick shower. In my best outfit, I kick started my pulsar. Mom’s voice sounded at a distant… 'Rahul.....' I was too excited to hear what she said... With a super fast ride, I reached the college road… Spotted my angel at a distance in a stunning white churidhar… she waved at me and flashed her charming smile. I felt like flying up in the air. All went blank but her beautiful face… A happy dream, I never want to wake up from…

But I wake up. Go to the bathroom. Looking at the mirror, sleepily. :-o Shocked… there’s no reflection… Rubbed my eyes and gazed, but still empty. Tried to wipe the mirror but seeing my hand goes through it, ‘Eek..!’  I let a shrill cry. Scared to death, I pulled my hands and hurried out bewilderingly… Wish I get up from my sleep and end this eerie nightmare. Feeling a sharp pain inside my head, I stare down at me lying in the hospital bed with injured head after the tragic bike accident… Its too late to listen to my mom's words…

  3. It was quite impressive the way you made your character speak through his dreams...or whatever it was...sort of 'Inception' moment...went over my tiny head.... I'm not good enough to judge your story...

    PS- By the way, '55 word fiction' is 55 words or less. So, it can be 54. But not 56!

    1. I am glad in a way you found it in an Inception way. It does add some sense to my straightforward story (?!).

      Thanks Rats, for the visit.. :-)

  10. Hi,

    Wow, that was even better F55, I must admit. You finished it off on a good note, many people take life for granted and rely more on Heroics and stunts on the road. Good take on the prompt.

    Go ahead and nibble on my entry for Get Published :)

    Regards

  12. Important message.

    But I think you should modify the opening sentence of your post, as specified by the WOW rules.
