Diane dried her dark eyes and put on her glasses. She made her way to the kitchen to put the kettle on the stove.

“I’d another one of those dreams, Dain.”

“The ones frae the future?”

“Cer. I’m an Arab girl, adopted by a dreadful churl of a man and his weak wife. I’ve two brothers, wee twins, six years younger than me. Their names are Gerry and Paul.”

“Di, do ye not suppose ye might be projecting yer emotions over Gerry’s troubles into yer dreams, Love? And, after all, you yerself were adopted.”

~Cie for Naughty Netherworld Press~

  1. Hi, Cie! I do love the brogue in this tale! Yep. It does seem like she might be projecting. :-)

    If you're caught up in this winter storm, stay safe. :-) We have ice.

    1. Diane is one of those people who was told by teachers to stop woolgathering. She always had a very active imagination, which can be both a blessing and a curse.

  2. Her dream sounds very detailed, and she remembers a lot of it. That alone makes it very distinctive and worth heeding.

    1. There are certain dreams that are worth paying attention to. I had a really odd one just last night. It wasn't a warning of any sort, I don't think, just very vivid and strange.
