I’m jerked out of my sleep, clammy from all the sweat. Sighing, I rub my face. I’m worn down because of the nightmare. Even though I’ve had this nightmare so many times, I still get chilled to the bone. 

Why do I keep having this same bad dream? It all seems so real.

I sit on the edge of my bed to calm myself. I have this dream at least three times a week. It always feels so realistic. My mom used to come to me whenever she heard me screaming when I just had the nightmare. She always found it hard to comfort me, so she just brought me a warm cup of milk.

I blink a few times to take in my surroundings and to assure myself I’m in my room. Every time I have to tell myself I’m not in that car. I’m just home, in my bed. I’m not in that car, and I’m not witnessing the death of the young boy.

Then my cabinet moves.

Stunned, I look at the piece of furniture. Did that just happen, or was it another fantasy? I’ve just woken up, so it’s not strange to see things that aren’t real. Right? All of a sudden something appears from behind the cabinet. Black smog is coming through the walls. A black ghost seeps like water through the wall, and then the cabinet and reveals its true form. A human. And he’s staring at me with the same wretched smile as he did yesterday when he moved the Ouija board.

This has to be another illusion.

Sam flies to my door, and something invisible latches onto him. He wriggles in mid-air, unable to move forward. I watch in horror as the smoky shadow turns about in his invisible prison.

Another entity drifts through the wall.

This one is much faster and blue, and moves with flexibility through my room. He looks human. This is unbelievable, unimaginable and insane.

I can’t comprehend what’s happening. The blue ghost follows the black ghost, who’s still wriggling around. Then he breaks loose from his invisible prison, and his arms go toward the door. The blue entity comes closer and looks as though he’s pursuing the black one.

I watch as Sam flees through my door, just before the blue ghost captures him. Sam’s gone. The blue ghost is too late.

The blue entity turns around to look at me.

His body is transparent, accompanied by smoke. His face is unrecognizable, but he has human traits. My desk and the paintings on the wall are visible right through him. Motionless and with my teeth clenched, I stare back at him. 

I can’t believe what I’m seeing. This has to be another ridiculous hallucination.

He stands frozen in my room. Even his eyes are translucent, but they’re there, because they have a lighter color than the rest of his body. It’s as if he’s wearing clothes, but only the soft outlines are visible. His body looks like it consists of a million little stars that glisten as he moves. He reminds me of a reflection of the cosmos.

This ghost isn’t like the others. This one seems more like a real human and less like a horrifying shade. He glows, just like the others, but I sense something that can be trusted in his aura. His body radiates warmth and power, and it doesn’t strike me with fear. What is he?

Then the mysterious stranger leaves just as quick as he came.
