~I had this dream many years ago and I don’t really remember what happened before I drowned, except that my sister, my mother and our friend Iris were being chased by a shark that could go on land and we were running up a steep, dusty road.~
Iris couldn’t get the car to move, we were stuck in the ditch at the side of the road. The land-shark was coming closer. Sophia ran up the path, along with Mom. The tiny car door fell open and I tumbled out. I landed in the small puddle and began to sink.
I tried to swim back to the surface, but my legs were like 100 pound weights. I was being dragged downward through the murky water.
I floated to the bottom and landed on a mound of old human skulls and bones. I tried to move, but my arms and legs wouldn’t respond. I was oddly calm, despite the fact that I was drowning.
So, this is what it’s like to drown? I thought as my eyelids closed. It’s more relaxing than I thought it would be…
~This is the first dream I had had about drowning that I can recall, but I’ve had quite a few more since then…~
