I had a dream last night
(first of all - sorry for any grammatical errors!^^)
I had a dream last night...
It was a dark place. Very dark. At first I could barely see my hand in front of my face.
The air was moist and stuffy and one could only hear some water dripping on the ground.
Otherwise there was an eerie silence around me...
Where am I? And what am I doing here!? Am I alone? Where is my Alba!?
I tried to locate her... - ...but there was... - ...nothing!
Finally, as my eyes had accustomed to the darkness, I could identify a weak shimmer on the mossy walls in one of the farthest corners of this - cave. Oh yes, now it seemed to be some sort of cave!
And there was a light! A flickering light, which led me to the conclusion that there must be a fire...
...a fire... - ...that means there must be someone! Hopefully!
Filled with curiosity I walked towards that weak shimmer, cautiously groping along the moist walls. Slowly... - ...just don't stumble!
As I finally reached that light and I timidly and cautiously turned the corner...
...a strange and gruesome sight greeted me!
I saw that there was indeed a fire, burning between three 3 poles rammed in the ground.
On every pole I saw... - ...impaled skulls... - ...and there was a rope hanging from the ceiling.
A thick rope with some more skulls, threaded like on a bead chain...
What is this!? What happened here!?
So many skulls!
As I counted them my breath caught for a second and a shiver ran down my spine...
They were nine! Nine skulls!
NINE!? By the GODS! What does this mean!?
I stood there, speechless, filled with horror, and eyes wide open.
Suddenly there was another light.
It looked like daylight, and bit by bit I recognized... - ...the ceiling of my room!
I woke up... - ...in my bed... - ...bathed in sweat.
What... - ...what was this!?
A bad omen - or just a harmless nightmare!?
...whatever it was, it was definitely scary...
Happy Halloween to all of you! :D
