Dreamer #atoz #flashfiction

Ever been in one of those dream loops that you can’t seem to get out of? This dream was a doozey. I mean epic…

I could hear voices all around me but I couldnt open my eyes and scream “this is a dream people go home!!!!”


” Where did she come?” a little girl quietly asked her mommy.

“Shhh little one no one knows; it’s a mystery.”

“They say she’s a princess” a man said reverantly.

“Look at that tiara. Do you think it is real?”

She is from another land a man said who commanded authority. She was to be the queen of her world Raphalia. I must discover what can be done.

There was a hush

I wanted to snicker. “Come on guys this is my imagination speaking.”

A note mysteriously appeared in my hands.

“Princess Alyssa the clock is ticking. You have one year to live after the poison has entered your body. You will remain in a dream state until the cure is administered. Use your powers to seek aid.”

~Your servant until death

“Ok dream it is time to let me awaken” I said unsuccessfully.

This short story is written for the A to Z April writing challenge for the letter “D.” This story will be continued each Wednesday until the end of April.

I recently started following talented artist Arna Baartz. This watercolor “Water Girl” seems to speak of a watery, dreamlike state. You can see more of Arna’s work here. Thank you Arna for the opportunity to show off your work.

  2. I had a terrible dream the other day that for some reason I can’t remember, I shot my little daughter dead! We were trying to cover it up from our friends and neighbours by telling them she was asleep, but we knew it wouldn’t hold up for much longer. And then I woke up! Terrible!
    Thanks for coming over to my blog and leaving a comment!

    This is me, Duncan D. Horne, visiting you from the A-Z challenge, wishing you all the best throughout April and beyond.
