I find myself sitting on a railroad track.
Next to me is an unconscious woman all tied up on the tracks.
I look at her strangely because she’s wearing a black dress.
Yet there’s something familiar about her.
There’s a strange fear that I have about her.
I don’t know how to explain it,
I’m just scared of her.
I look around and recognize that I’m in a strange world.
There’s no color in sight.
Everything is black and white.
The sky is grey,
The sun is white,
The trees that surround this railroad track are black.
Where are the colors in this strange world?
Am I truly in a gray world?
I look down and notice that I’m wearing a gold watch.
Why is this the only thing in color?
But I quickly notice that it’s broken.
The glass is cracked and the hands are not moving at all.
Why would I be wearing such a watch?
I hear something coming in the distance.
My brain can’t really figure out what it is.
The vibrations on the track show that it’s a force to be reckoned with.
And it’s coming towards me.
I quickly see in the distance that it’s a purple, speeding train.
I have a minute to get off of these tracks.
I stand up about to leave.
Then, I hear the woman in the black dress waking up.
She’s scared and has no idea what’s going on.
She sees me and begs me to help her.
As she’s begging for me to save her,
I see her sharp, fanged teeth.
I’m confused and don’t know what to do.
I’m scared of her,
But I admire her so much.
I recognize that this is not a simple decision.
She must be tied up for a reason.
Maybe this was my doing or someone else did this for a reason,
I have no idea.
Yet, she doesn’t deserve such a gruesome fate.
Maybe she’s a poor victim or maybe I’m meant to save her,
I have no idea.
The purple train is only seconds away now.
I have to make a decision.
Otherwise, death will take us both.
I don’t know what to do.
Everything turns black.
I wake up from a scary dream.
I’m breathing heavy, and I’m a little worried.
I’m worried because I don’t remember how the dream ended.
Did I allow the locomotive to take her life?
Or did I save the dream girl?
