After coming home from an interesting day and night I finally succumbed to sleep.
The whole house fell to that deaf’n quite.
You know the one that eventually your ears ring out as if crying for some noise.
I fell asleep hard.
Found myself in this strange dream where I rambled on and on as if on the radio.
I was in my car, but not.
I had my family in the car, but not.
You know how “those” dreams can go and feel.
I was making a second pass in a dark parking lot.
This feeling of “something is about to happen” washed wickedly over me.
Out of the darkness this shadow figure appeared walking just 15 feet from the car.
Over my right shoulder and out the passenger side window.
I do now remember which came first, the need to look over my shoulder or the horrible sound I heard.
I was the vilest screech I’ve ever heard.
Started in the highest of octaves and quickly slid down to a piercing whale.
“DADDY! MOMMA IS NOT COMing home!”
I speed the car up and started out of the parking lot.
That is when I woke.
Heart racing, right ear throbbing as if someone had just screamed for every ounce of life in it.
Right arm numb and asleep.
I scanned the room, no children.
In the distance I could hear breaking the silence the soft cough of my daughter.
That’s all I could do.
I prayed for peace, protection, and the Holy Spirit to fill my home with its light.
“I rebuke you Satan and in the name of God command you to leave and return from whence you came.”
Just jumped out of my mouth.
Normally I would be looking outside to see if what woke me was not a dream but a bleeding of reality and dreams.
Check on my neighbors and make sure nothing was going nuts outside.
No… not this time… I don’t get scared.
Tonight I did.
Whatever manifested in my dream for whatever reason… frightened the living spirit to the core.
There was nothing but darkness, death, and pain.
I love my dreams I do. The fact I dream so vividly and can recall so much, I get lost in.
Tonight though, even as I type this.
Its one of those “I wish I could unsee…”
I know I am safe.
Because of my faith.
I’m just curious if it was just but a dream…
My ear still hurts…
