Nightmares :: 'mouse

Harlan found he almost enjoyed the adrenalin, the deep mourning and the release that came with waking from fires, car crashes, avalanches, and last night, a staggeringly huge tidal wave that took away his family and millions of other people while he survived clinging to a standpipe on the side of a brick schoolhouse on high ground.

The little girl stood trembling at the top of the monstrously tall, scalding hot and gun-metal grey slippery dip, wondering how she’d ever get down from the nightmare, when suddenly a white-scaled, rainbow-feathered dragon came giggling and jingling out of a rip in the sky, swooped down towards her and plucked her out of the air.
