The house was dark even though there was a half moon outside. I heard the door open and I turned my head towards it. I wanted to open my eyes but I couldn’t. It felt like it was a tall slender figure coming towards me against the dim light through the door. My heart started beating fast but I did not talk. The figure walked towards me and sat at the edge of the bed and looked at me. I asked,

“Who are you? I cannot open my eyes.”

She took my face in her cold hands and lifted me off the pillow gently,she was smiling,then she said,

“I wanted to check in on you,I miss you.”

“I’ve just realized I can’t tell your voice in the dark.” I felt disappointed.

Finally I could open my eyes,I was just dreaming and it felt like an out of body experience. There was no one else in the room.
