I had been sound asleep. Was it a dream? Scared me out of my wits. I looked at the clock. Almost four AM.
Why did it sound so familiar?
It was, as if, in the brief moment I was still asleep, I knew who it was that called me. But the very thing I knew was forgotten as soon as my eyes opened.
I remember a form, but no face. As if I was visualizing the voices owner, despite facing the opposite direction on my right shoulder. I remember that I heard the words, but don't recall how they sounded. It was a normal voice... not distorted or monstrous...
Was it an old woman? Or a young girl? Someone my age?
Why would I have dreamed of something like that? Why would it wake me up?
I didn't go back to sleep.
As scary as it was, I almost wish I had kept dreaming. To just... see who it was.
