The bridge of her dreams
That thing she saw on her son’s crib that night, a month earlier was sitting on her chest, something dark was dripping out of its mouth, she felt a sharp pain in her neck, her hand automatically reached out to the spot and she felt something warm, wet. Her palm was smeared with her own blood. She pushed the thing from her chest rudely it slithered away in a lightning speed to a dark corner of the room.
She tried to turn on the light but the electricity was out! There was no sign of Monalisa. She stumbled out of the bed and to the door, Monalisa was standing outside the door, as if she was about to enter, or was just waiting outside…
When she opened her mouth she was he r charming self, all filled with compassion and worry!
“You are bleeding!” she has exclaimed, but something in her eyes told Rekha she was lying, even though she was an ace actress.
“Light the emergency light and keep it on!” she told her, because she knew the medicine will overpower her sooner or later and she will fall asleep.
Her son, of course was sleeping in his crib. There was no trace of the thing that attacked her!
