Lost Dreams: Chapter 10 (Merrily Merrily Merrily, But a Dream)
That night, Caleb had the most fantastic dream.
They were all together. At a beach, salt in the air, and the waves crashing in. He felt the cool damp sand between his toes. It was a windy day, and Amanda and he were taking turns tearing down the beach, with a rainbow colored box kite trailing behind. His parents were a few steps behind, holding hands. The sun was setting, and the sky was on fire with pinks and oranges. Caleb looked back, and they both smiled at him.
Amanda was now ahead of him, the kite behind her now lifting to the air. "Caleb! C'mon already!"
He smiled, and then turned and ran to catch her, his legs pumping in the sand, the sun warming his face.
And he held on with all his might, hoping - no praying - that he would never wake up.
