Death Note

To the angels above me

This morning, my back didn’t hurt. I was slightly taken aback, for it was seldom that my irksome habit of shifting constantly in my sleep, decided to leave for a while. As they say, flaws take time to fade but goodness is slow to embrace. However this morning, it took me time to comprehend if I was at all on the bed. It wasn’t one for sure. Was I building castles in the air or did the younger one push me to the floor? Well, marble hurts. But today, it didn’t. I forced my lids open, even though it was a ritualistic struggle each morning. As astonishing as it was, I saw cumulus clouds all around, as if I were surrounded by gigantic, fluffy, white cotton candies. I knew I loved them whenever mother took me to the fair, but today it felt I couldn’t take so much in. I got up in a dizzy state of mind, walking in an improper fashion, when suddenly I froze midway, baffled to the core. Beneath me wasn’t the marbled floor, nor was I sleepwalking on the bed. I found myself standing on a pedestal, the one made of white, fluffy clouds. They weren’t fragile, nor fleeting but powerful, serene in a bright blue summer. Far away, my eyes spotted something. I could hear the rush of free flowing water. As I sprinted towards the source of the sound with excitement at heart, I stood in front of a beautiful lake, which glistened in the time of mid-summer. I paused for a moment, as I looked up to see a vulture or two, towards the east side. Yet some others grouped together and roamed the heavenly ether. Where was I? Just then, a sudden call from a distance distracted my trail of thoughts. I turned to see a woman, dressed in clear white apparels, shimmering in the light of the day. I thought I saw a halo around her, but weren’t these supposed to be nothing but fantasy? I walked towards her, slow but cautious. Her brown locks fluttered in the warm air, as she stood there, smiling. She leaned forward and softly whispered to me, “Welcome home”. At that moment, I simply couldn’t understand what that phrase meant. I looked around, as if in a way of searching for something. Yes, I was looking for Dave, my little brother. Last I saw him, was when we stood hand in hand, until that unknown figure grabbed my hand and pulled me to a corner. I remember he panicked. I could feel a pool of thick, black blood form around where I lay. I didn’t know what happened but I knew I was hurt. But didn’t mum reach in minutes and brought me back home? Didn’t she say, “You’ll feel better after you wake up?” I still can’t find them. I didn’t hear the alarm burst my ears today. I didn’t feel mum caress my tangled hair. I didn’t hear Dave hurl funny but irksome abuses at me. Was I yet to wake up? Or will I never wake up again? I looked around one more time. There’s an unmatched peace all around, the birds hovering above seem like little angels guarding me. The murmur of the water feels like a harp from a distance, the clouds underneath feel comfortable and silky. I slowly walked back from where I had come. No, it wasn’t home, but the place where I lay. I now, loved my new home.
