False Dreams

alarm clockMel awoke in a cold sweat to her alarm going off, she had the nightmare again.  She rolled herself out of bed and made her way to the bathroom for a shower, she had college and work today.  The warm water in the shower reminded her of her dreams.  Every time she had the dream it was the same.  She was in the dark and in warm water and she could not move or see anything.

She is a student at the local college.  After dressing she grabbed a quick meal of toast and orange juice and hurried out the door with her backpack.

School was the same old thing for her today.  She was just about to graduate with a double major in Chemistry and Microbiology.

She worked at a local grocery store to help put her through college.  This time she was sure that it was happening.
