I can't breathe; my throat feels dry, sweat drips off my face and hair; I need water, I open my mouth but no word comes out of it.
Where am I, I slowly open my eyes; it's completely dark; I've never been in a more horrendous place.
It seems I'm sitting on a chair, but where am I…am I in my room, questions arise; I think the power went off, I sigh and get up from the chair but…
My hands are tied together. I vainly struggle against the rope. Something is wrong…I have to get out…I'm trapped, I try to shout but my voice chokes.
I run here and there but it seems there is no door, how is it possible…where am I…, suddenly tripping over something, I fall to the floor.
I can't feel any pain but there's a sound, it's coming from far away, isn't it my phone?…
I sit up in my bed, ohh….it was a dream!!, I heave a sigh of relief, grab the bottle and gulp down all the water in it.
I fumble for the light switch next to my bed, where's the damn switch, I mutter curses; my phone starts ringing, Hello, I answer it.
'What if this is a dream?…What if that was real?…Either way you're trapped…', the voice on the other end breaks into a mad fit of demonic laughter.
