A long floor, many doors and somewhere the scream of a child. I have to do something but which door is it? The child screams again; I can’t find the door.
Darkness, a numb feeling; conscience slowly pushing through its way. A dream, I’m dreaming.
Another scream; moonlight, thoughts gathering. It must be in one of the gardens. Somewhere there screams a child. Adrenalin stirs the body; I must get up, check, try to see something.
Again a scream, different; not longer like a child. What…?
A thought forming; obvious, annoying truth: Cats! 3 o’clock in the morning; the neighbourhood cats are having a fight.
Awakeness; relieve. Everything is under control.
