It was around two in the afternoon. My body felt heavy and it gravitated towards the nearest bed. With no strength to resist, I surrendered to the inevitable. I lay down. With this much need for rest, I did not expect what would happen next.
Paralyzed! With non-physical chains tying me down in my bed. My body cannot move. The mind is awake, in full function! I am trapped in the realm between sleep and wake. A tune then played into my ears. A child hummed a song. In this state, I felt like the song from the child is a harbringer of harm. It fades in and out.
The hairs on my arms stood on end. If they gain a will, they will escape from my skin and then hid. Then bam! The door escaped from its hinges and inced towards me. Bam! One step. Bam! Another. A few more repetitive banging on the floor tiles and then it is right beside me. Right beside my paralyzed body. The door has no eyes, but I felt a stare. Like it is examining me. For what reason? For what reason?
It moved forward and a sharp edge of the door hit my foot. I can feel the wood grain move on my left foot. It hurts! I cannot escape. Then I snapped out of the nightmare. With sweat on my brow, I sat up and looked at my door. I locked the deadbolt and the knobs. An irrational reaction, but such nightmare can get people.
