A girl is wandering around a dream full of secrets. Thank you to Q.N. for making the cover.

 

Perhaps it was only a dream, she thought. Perhaps if she pinched herself, she would wake up, but did not desire it. She wanted to stay in this dream world where time felt irrelevant. The amount of silence allowed her to feel such an immense peace. As she wandered the white canvas of a land, tall trees began to fade in from the nothingness. She felt the grass, so vibrantly green and the dirt so dark and heavy, under her bare feet. The growth of such beautiful nature was overwhelming to her. Tears soon ran down her grinning face little by little as she looked to the bright blue sky. She stood there listening to the wind and the voices of the trees. Her sobbing soon ended as clouds enveloped the once joyous sky. She continued her journey with a few giggles here and there through the beautiful forest. Snow began to trail behind her as she slowly walked farther, and farther, into the dark woods. A heavy cold breeze rushed passed her as the path of bright white snow behind her grew larger and larger like a wild fire. Her pace began to dwindle as did her will to move on. The temperature was at the point where her shaking legs could move no longer, and her frail arms can hold no tighter around her torso. The legs that carried her this far soon gave out and she dropped to the freezing bed of snow. As she laid as still stone, a blanket of snow began to form around her. The only two words she was able to mutter to the dark figure standing before her was,

"Thank you".

In regards to your comment on "Vita Somnium", I mostly likely will leave it as a very short story. My reasoning is based on the secrets I have put in the story already.
