The Strangest Dream Ever
By Salva Piera
Once upon my bed, a nasty noise came to my ears. A mosquito flying around! I was so tired of going hunting those creepy creatures all day… Not willing to keep doing it that late in the night, I decided to cover my face with the blanket and repeat to myself: “I want to sleep, I want to sleep, I want to sleep …”
The noise, though, was getting louder and louder. I could not stand it any longer, so I got up just to realize that I was inside the mosquito! Indeed! Then a gate opened on one side of the flying beast and a voice said: “JUMP!” Not sure why but that is what I did without thinking too much.
Contrary to what I would have expected it was quite warm outside, and extremely windy. The pressure on my face while I was falling down was deforming it into the funniest of gestures. Feeling goofy I started laughing at myself with a wide open mouth, and I could not close it. Suddenly, to my surprise, my body was peeled up like a banana. The falling stopped.
Don’t know how to explain it, I had no body but I was floating. Then I started to fly and got used to it very fast, like remembering something that was natural to you after a long time. Could not imagine it was that easy, just a matter of wishing. If I wished to go up, I went up. If I wished to go down, I went down. Left, right, backward, forward … Any direction! Believe me, flying gives you a powerful feeling and is real fun.
But I could not stop. How can you stop a no-body? I flew for a while until I noticed in the distance a hill. In the top of the hill there was some kind of strange building, and curious I approached it. Closer I observed that the building was a restaurant with a terrace, and some people were seated around oval tables.
I landed on the terrace and started moving over the surface, much like I was walking, towards the restaurant’s entrance. Apparently nobody saw me. Of course! How could they? As soon as I crossed the entrance I noticed the blue phone cabin, there on the right. A man was inside, talking. I did not pay much attention and kept going. Arriving to the reception’s desk, the man’s scream behind me: “Hey, You!” paralysed me. His eyes were staring at me in a hypnotic way and I could not move an inch, anymore.
Next I woke up. The mosquito had just bitten the tip of my nose. Ouch! It itches!- Total nr. of readings: 6,791 Copyright © The author  All Rights Reserved. This story may not be reproduced without the express written permission of the author except for personal use.
