What’s Real?

“Am I asleep, or am I dreaming?” This question whirled through her mind.

The person standing in front of her looks very real, though his voice is low.

“Let me ask you something. Who told you good things happen only in dreams?”

“But this was a nightmare….” She stutters, “I’m happy it’s over.”

“How do you know it’s over?”

She throws out the copy of Alice in Wonderland out of bed, and rises up to face the day.

“This is real – the people that I will meet today. Characters from books blur the line between real and unreal.”

He disappears.
