This is a serial. Everyday a new part will be published. This is the first part.
I had fallen asleep as soon as our jeep had crossed the creaky bridge across a sneaky river. I learnt afterwards that the scenery hence was miraculous, but I would have even traded gold for the breathtaking dream that I had in my sleep. It was breathtaking to such an extent that, had I been a medical student in my dream, as I am in real life, I would have diagnosed the condition to be asthmatic.
Initially, I didn’t realise that I was dreaming. It must have been due to the fact that although I had started dreaming, my eyes were still open. This is a weird thing of mine. I fall asleep, but I forget to close my eyes. I won’t deny, this has been very benificial to me in my school days. In the boring lectures, while others were contemplating murders and wondering when the ceiling fan would fall off and if it does then who would die first, I was merrily sleeping with my eyes open, with enough vivacious spirit to have the teacher congratulate me later for being the most attentive in the class!
Okay, now back to the dream. I was dreaming about a mummy. Not a motherly mummy, but more of an egyptian mummy. I saw that, actually I dreamt it, but from now on the dream is my reality, so whenever I use a verb, you should know, that it was actually in my dream. I saw that the driver who was driving the car, seemed to be a little lean and thin. I surely appreciate the property of thinness, which is why I love the Apple products so much, but the driver was thin to the bone. Literally! I could see no flesh. I acted as if I found his humerus to be humorous, only to conceal my fear. But this attempt of mine failed miserably as soon as he turned towards me. I saw no face, for there was none. Instead, there was, the bandaged head of a mummy. A mummy scary enough to make you wanna hide into the lap of your mommy.
I was speechless. Not exactly speechless, but more of a sensible-speechless. Since I was uttering all these weird sounds broadcasting how scared I was. Now the mummy stopped the car. Unwrapped the bandages. Thus, Revealing the face.
I couldn’t believe what I saw.
To be continued. Next part will be available here.
