Dreaming Again

…….. Then something black flew out of the mist and smashed against the glass, shattering it and showering her with cutting fragments.  She screamed.

Anna sat up, heart pounding, and felt her face with trembling fingers, but the skin was smooth.

‘A nightmare,’ she whispered and lay back to ponder the doubled oddness of dreaming you were waking, only to find you had woken into another dream..
