I stood erect in my bed , my heart throbbing , my face covered in perspiration. I was trying to recall the dream that I just had,trying my best to remember every detail vividly. And then the dream started to play in my mind as if it were set on replay. Slowly but surely , I started recalling every detail possible. I remembered seeing my grandfather in the dream, telling me not to be afraid , no matter what. As I stood still in my bed, I tried to understand what he meant by this , but sadly I did not get any answer. Instead I closed my eyes and went back to sleep , hoping that the sun will rise soon. The same morning, I woke up , did my daily routine and went off to school. As I was on my way , I heard my grandfathers voice once again " don't be afraid , no matter what" . For a moment I thought I was hallucinating due to my lack of sleep that night, but once again I heard it " don't be afraid...no matter what. I tried my best to understand what my dream meant, but again I failed. That whole day , my mind was completely on that dream, as if my heart sensed something , but what? " Hey Al" my teacher told me, " Your mom is waiting outside, your going home early " . I didn't know whether or not to be excited or worried on this news, but I did what my teacher told me too. As I slowly opened the rusty front doors of the school entrance, I saw my mom waiting for me. " What's wrong ma? , why did you pick me up early?" , I said. She looked at me puzzled , as if debating In her own mind. At last she spoke" Grandpas dead". For a moment I did not believe my own ears but the look on her face made all my doubts vanish. I stood silent , as if I were lost in my thoughts.
