A morning like no other
I heard voices in my dream-like state. I thought it was part of the dream but then it's becoming louder and clearer and constant. It wasn't a dream.
I then opened my eyes and lifted my head to the sound of the voices to find my landlady and her son working on our computer. I don't know what they were doing but they were there and they seem to be serious with their task. They saw me woke up and they just smiled at me then went back to whatever they are busy with.
Then it dawned on me. That's odd. Since when did we bring our computer in our bedroom? As if the presence of our landlady and her son is not weird enough.
I then sat on our bed not knowing how to react. Questions fill my head. Where did my partner go?
I then slowly take in the room I'm in. Something seems odd. It is wider, almost double in size than our room before. Did they renovate while I was sleeping? How long have I been asleep? I thought at first I am in another house but when I looked at the sheets and the blankets and curtains, they are ours.
As I looked around more, it's getting stranger by the minute yet all seems familiar. The color of the wall is different. It's whiter than I remembered.
I did notice a number of bags filled with clothes or linens or whatever set on the floor almost filling half of the room even surrounding the area where my landlady and her son was.
I then decided to get up and out of our bed for I feel the need for coffee.
Mother and son are still hellbent on the computer talking to each other seriously. As I was about to step out, the son acknowledged me and mentioned about them working on something urgent. No wonder they are that serious.
Stepping out of our room, there on our sofa in the living room sits the younger son tying his shoes. He saw me and smiled and then called out for his mom saying something to the effect that he is ready to go out.
I don't remember what was said between them but the younger son then went out the door and left. I continued on to our bathroom to relief myself and do my own business.
I don't know what happened next for that's when I woke up. For real this time. It was all a dream.
This was a dream I had two days ago. Usually, I forgot what I dreamt about. It slipped my mind yesterday but now it came back in full force. I mean the gist of the dream not every detail of it. I decided to write it down.
That's how dreams are anyway. Weird and strange and yet familiar.
