I woke up late at night hearing whispers in my room. The wind was calm, the sound of traffic, not so much. Honestly It is a miracle I was even able to sleep at all. I checked the time and it was exactly 1:11 in the morning. “My God I have around 5 hours till I get up for work. I am no good if I am exhausted.”
Then suddenly I started hearing random movements. “I must be hearing things. Damn this insomnia of mine.” I went back to sleep as best as I could. That said and nothing more. Not much could be done about it. It was as though something or someone is intending to keep me up all night. I decided not to think about it too much.
I was already frustrated as it is. I looked at the time on my alarm clock again. This time it was 1:45. My eyes widened in shock. “That can’t be possible. I was only up for a few minutes.” My heartbeat just rose in a split second as I try to recollect myself.
“Don’t be so jumpy. The batteries must just be malfunctioning. But if that just doesn’t happen when an alarm clock’s battery malfunctions.” I pondered to myself. None of this was making any sense. I quickly recollected myself as I laid on my bed and closed my eyes.
I went back to sleep again. However this time I heard whispers. My eyes widened quickly again, I paced myself as I wondered what was that. Either my mind was playing tricks on me which it usually does or is there something else entirely that I cannot seem to comprehend. I muttered to myself, “This is just getting ridiculous.”
I paced myself yet again as I laid down and closed my eyes. The whispers were getting stronger. I heard “Be not afraid. Be still.” The very tone felt somewhat soothing and yet ominous. I shook my head trying to snap out of it.
I felt like I was losing control. I only wanted to just get some sleep and not think about anything. I laid down once again and tried to go to sleep but I felt a cold air going right through me and the whispers got louder, more coherent.
“We are here for you….”
My eyes widened in shock, “What?”
“We are here…”
“We want you..to come with us…”
The tone in their voice were getting clearer and ghastlier. Almost with a hiss in their tone. Then As if my heartrate couldn’t get any higher. I saw these beings manifest into dark shadows. I could not see their faces, but I did sense an ominous presence from them. Were they real? Are they evil spirits? I don’t know, and I don’t think I even want them near me.
“Come with us…Become One with usss…”
I was paralyzed with fear. I could not believe what I was seeing. But these aberrations were drawing closer and closer. I did not know what to do. The air was getting much more dense as if gravity was a lot stronger the closer they got.
They reached out to me, they pulled their hand out ready to grab me. Then suddenly, it was if by instinct I bellowed out with a loud roaring thunderous voice, “BEGONE!”
The entities panicked. They did not believe what they heard. So they dispersed and vanished into the darkness away from me. I began sweating at the intensity of it all. Trying to catch my breath.
“Thank God it’s over,” I said. I don’t think I can describe words about what happened. All I know is, I hope it never happens again. I took deep breaths to calm myself down as I laid in the bed and looked at the ceiling. There was just so much that happened at night. At that moment I just wanted to go back to sleep. I glanced at the alarm clock once again. But something was off. Now it was 1:13 am. Did all of that happened in just two minutes? Was I dreaming this whole time?
“Fucking unreal.” I thought to myself. I could have sworn I was awake when it all happened. This was all too confusing for me, but I was too tired to think right now, so I closed my eyes and I drifted off to sleep to get ready for work the next day.”
“The nightmare is not over yet….”
From where I stand, Time is of little importance. Can we find Truth in a sea of dreams?
