The dream was incredibly vivid with many of the stranger aspects of the story fully formed. I woke up with my heart pounding still lost in the reality of the dreamworld. To calm myself as I lay in bed, I started to fill in the gaps and see how I could turn it into a story. By the time I got up I knew i would have to write it.(less)
