I sat up with a start, my heart racing as my eyes took in my surroundings. After a moment of panic, a calm settled over me as I realized I was in my room. It had only been a dream, a horrific, confusing, and altogether terrifying dream. My heart was still racing, pounding fiercely against my chest, as I felt a cold sweat beading on the back of my neck.
It took a few seconds before I realized I was holding my breath. Letting out a sigh of relief, I turned my eyes to the clock by my bed. A groan escaped my lips as I saw the time; it was three A.M. Running my hand down my face, I took a second to compose myself, taking in slow careful breaths, trying to calm my heart.
Sliding my hand back up across my face, I ran it through the long strands of blond hair, pulling them off my neck and over my shoulder. As I turned to lie back down, a shadow moved past my window and I froze, my breath caught in my chest once more.
Standing up quickly, I moved to the window but found nothing but the darkened street below, illuminated only by the singular lamppost at the intersection. Of course, there was nothing there; I was on the second story.
That sort of thinking was probably one of the first signs of insanity. Finally letting my breath out, I stared at the streets for a moment just to be certain, before I shook my head clear and turned back to bed. Clearly, I needed sleep.
Between this and my dream, the chances of getting a decent night's rest were slim at this point. Lying back down, I gazed at the ceiling for a moment before I squeezed my eyes shut tightly. School started back tomorrow, the first day of junior year, which just meant one more year of being just a little bit lower on the food chain.
I turned my head to glance at the time; I blinked in confusion as the clock still read three A.M. Reaching my hand over, I hit it only to see it click into one after three. Yup, it was definitely broken. With a sigh, I closed my eyes, trying to let the dream escape my mind as I drifted back to sleep.
I am an Irish-Canadian Young Adult author who was born in Winnipeg, Canada (yes, it really does exist). I love my city and love even more that it's become Hollywood's running joke (Don't believe me? Just check out Youtube).
I have always been a writer, from poems in my Grade 6 diary (Ode to Hobbits), to short stories in the back of my math's book. I have always loved to create stories and find myself constantly creating new characters.
I am a dedicated Fangirl of many proportions and I have a knack for getting expressions all wrong and saying incredibly stupid, but often hilarious things (My graduation gift from my friends was a book of my own quotes).
I am a proud alumna of St. Mary’s Academy, an all-girls Catholic prep school and I studied Theatre and Film at the University of Winnipeg. Currently, I am still hanging out in Winnipeg.
