Dead asleep, I was awoken by the feeing of eyes staring at me. I could feel someone near me as I traveled through space and time to return to my bedroom and consciousness in October 2027. She stood over my bed, locking eyes on my bed, my face, my body.
I stared a few seconds directly at her ghostly face. She seemed shy and uncomfortable. Her white dress hung loosely around her tiny frame, her long black hair stuck to her forehead, covering her left eye.
I told her “silly Willy, why are you standing there, get into bed, come on - let’s go to sleep.”
I felt her body slide into bed. She put her tiny arm and hand on my waist. I immediately fell asleep.
In the morning I smiled knowing she made it “home” safely.
