Today, dear Readers, you are getting two short story posts. You can thank my lovely friend Rebecca for this second story treat, because it was she who prompted me to write it with a mysterious and intriguing text:
“Headline: Band Boosters plan mattress sale fundraiser”
How could I not respond to that? Enjoy!
HEADLINE: BAND BOOSTERS PLAN MATTRESS SALE FUNDRAISER!
Zelina smiled as she read the paper’s headline. Gotcha.
There was a Ghastly Nightmare on the loose, and it was Zelina’s job to catch it. That was what a Dream Catcher did. And what better place for a Nightmare to be lurking than at a mattress sale where hundreds of people would be gathered around beds? It would be nothing for the Nightmare lull them into a deep sleep, and then it would attack. A feast of dreams for the Ghastly Nightmare to ravage.
She glanced down at the paper again. The Mattress Sale was scheduled for this Saturday. That gave her three days to prepare. Three days to lay her traps. Just three days, but Zelina would be ready.
Bring on the night.
To be continued…
