Yesterday I was preparing to go back home. I hold a water bottle in my left hand and carrying my hand bag in the other
hand. I should pass the children ward to arrive the gate so, while I was getting out my car’s key, I noticed someone in the children’s hall! It was a child maybe around 5 years. The hall was
empty except the child and the light was off. I was surprised because patients are not allowed to sit after 10:00pm and it was 10:45pm. I stood for a while and watched him, but he was
sitting without any movement. I could barely see his face. I looked around, but no one was there. Actually my heart was beating because almost all children who live here are violent. I wasn’t
ready at all for unexpected movement in this dark room at this time. Smoothly I approached him, and then he started whispering and looking around like he’s looking for something! He didn’t
notice me or maybe he did! I continued approaching himand said “hi sweety”! He kept whispering. Suddenly he turned his face towards me. His body was taut to the point that his
fingers seemed broken!! He screamed and I started screaming too!! I felt my heart stopped beating. My whole body was shaking; I didn’t know what to do!! Then he stopped
screaming while his mouth remained open! He started approaching towards me!! I fell back; my hands, feet and nose were frozen!! I stumbled, but I stod up and ran to find someone,
I kept running I tried to look back but I couldn’t, I felt that I can’t run anymore! I was hearing his foot steps behind me! But he
was walking slowly while I was running fast!
Suddenly I felt a strong blow to my head, and everything is dark!
I opened my eyes, I can’t see clear!! I guess this is my room! Yes this is my room! But why am I lying on the floor! Oh my head, it
hurts a lot and I’m sweating!!! What’s happening? Where’s the boy? Am I dreaming? Is that a dream! But how is that??!! It seemed to be real! I
am still shaking, my heart still beating!!
It was 3:34am and after this nightmare I preferd to check outmy children! Acutally I felt safe when I saw them sleep like they had
never slept before! I went back to my room,covered myself and started to think of that boy! I never wanted to work in children ward and this dream made me more determined of that!
I kept thinking till I slept, hoping not to meet him again!
