Saturday Mix #StoryStarter – The Tunnel in the Dream

Motionless, she stood gazing down the tunnel. The path extended as far as the eye could see, encased by walls of grimy bricks.

“A-anton?” She said, lips quivering, “is that you?” At the other end of the tunnel stood a shadow of a man, he, too, was motionless. “Anton?” She called again. Feeling courageous, she took a step forward. “I’m here, baby. Please answer me if you’re still in there.”

Suddenly, a hiss echoed from the other end of the tunnel. It came from Anton but it wasn’t Anton. “Anton?” She froze in her tracks as a low rumble erupted around her followed by a ear-splitting scream. She instantaneously clapped her hands over ears as she witnessed something that filled her with disbelief – a great ball of fire coming out of Anton’s mouth.

In her dark bedroom, she sprang into a sitting position, sweat and possibly tears dotted her face. “Anton,” she muttered her missing husband’s name and wondered if the dream just told her where he was.
