Sample text:



I watched helplessly as the scene in front of me took place. It was as though I were floating in space and looking down from above. The girl had my face and she was wearing my clothes but the look of fear, and the screams that burst forth, were too unfamiliar to call my own. Then, as the spine chilling sounds continued, I was suddenly shaken into reality.



A hand gripped my shoulder. And the uncontrollable screams took on a life of their own. I was helpless to stop them as the firm grasp dug deeper into my skin.

“Julia! Julia! Julia!”

The words ever so slowly filtered into my subconscious.

“Julia! It’s ok! It’s me, Julia! Julia!”

I could hear the voice. It came from a distant place but it took the rough shaking of his strong hands to bring me back into awareness. I looked around bewildered, trying to focus on the face in front of me.

“Julia! You were having a nightmare! You were screaming and we couldn’t wake you!” My dad looked at me with concern as he stood by my bed, too stunned to move.

“That must have been an epic dream, sis! I could hear you from down the hall! I never knew you could scream so loudly!” Of course Matt had to make a joke of it all, but at least that helped to break the tension.

“What were you dreaming about?” Mom asked worriedly. “I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone scream like that before, not in real life, anyway!”

“I was in this darkened room,” I began to explain, “and, and…”

For some reason, I just couldn’t bring myself to continue. The images were too gruesome and I struggled to recall the dream I’d been having.
