nepenthean's Diaryland Dream Diary


fire and water

i was looking out my kitchen window when, way in the distance, i saw a huge bolt of lightning strike the earth and maintain contact for a good 20-30 seconds. it sparked a huge fire, of course, and it was close enough that i knew my house was going to be devoured. i yelled to my dad, who was in the house, that we had to go -- right then. so what did we do? we stood around and watched the ensuing, insane rainstorm, the rainstorm that seemed to be taking place just on our street. i observed water getting into the house before i jammed out of there, no thought whatever to my dad.

so where did i go? oh, closer to the fire, of course. i rushed into a muddy field and hurriedly tried to put on a farmer's pair of yellow overalls. the problem was, they were too f-ing heavy and i couldn't. (somehow, they were going to protect me from the fire.) so i scooped them up and ran off. i hesitate to say i ran to a church, because i didn't exactly, and it wasn't a catholic church, but i ran off in the vicinity of a church before waking up. when i did wake up, it was almost 5 a.m. and raining like crazy.
