The city was asleep. No horns. No speeding cars. The shut stores. Everything was calm but, her brain. The neurons transmitted signals here and there. There was something going on she was unaware of. The adrenaline rushed through activating different cells. Sweat ran across her neck and chest. She clenched her fist gathering the blanket. She could feel the blood flow. Her heart pounded hard enough to break its own walls.
Those creases between her brows had alot to say.
Tripping over something invisbile, she woke up terrified, breathing heavily.
2:30 AM the clock read.
“Not again,” she muttered.
Failure, rejection, falling, fire, everything in one go. It wasn’t one of those pleasant dreams that rarely crossed her.
Nightmares struck her again and again. Till this day, when she is afraid. Just to fall asleep.
