His world was full of wonder, more than mine could ever imagine in a billion lightyears. The stars were brighter, it almost seemed as if each one had their own galaxy, full of more stars. Who knows? Maybe they did. I wanted to stay here forever, but I knew that was impossible. His world was make believe, pretend, not real. As soon as I woke up all the wonder would be gone and I'd be left to ponder about all the unknown wonders of my world. Which, as I imagined, were probably not nearly as amazing as here. His face was the only thing to draw my gaze away from the luminous stars; porcelain, flawless, one could even say perfect. Whether this was a dream or I really was seeing him in the afterlife, he was beautiful. His slightly freckled face seemed to have never seen or heard of one single blemish; his eyes a black void, but had an unforgettable sparkle deep within them that I compared to the stars; and his hair was in a messy swoop, the black locks swished in the nonexistent wind. He was just as perfect in death as he'd been in life. Only true perfection could overcome something as terrible as death, and my brother showed just this. Suddenly his perfection faded, the stars became brighter with every second, and I was blinded with what I came to find was sunlight streaming through my window. I was back in my own world, my own brotherless world.
