I couldn't think of any other title for my story. This happened back in 2010 in my room.
Since I was a child, I've been having dreams of drowning like sinking on the bottom while I watch people resurface. I would wake up sweating and gasping for air, and sometimes, crying. However, that night back then, it was different.
I woke up in the living room with my relatives in some living room. I thought, oh, I fell asleep while catching up. Then the scene shifted from us riding 4x4 jeeps beside the Manila bay (dreams are weird, I tell ya). Then there was suddenly bombing as if Manila was under attack. There was panic and utter chaos. The 4x4 dodged an upcoming bomb and it swerved off to the bay. Then we were sinking. I tried to swim up but I can't. I see my relatives swimming up to surface and I tried waving and shouting under the water but they cant seem to see me. The thought of dying came into mind and I was waiting for my last breath to go out.
That's when I sat up abruptly in my bed holding my chest, panting. I was crying and relieved at the same time. I was about to lie down to go back to sleep when I saw a person with no face wearing white in front of my bed. I literally froze up. I can't move. Can't talk. All of a sudden she moved a little closer, that's when I started shouting. But no sound came out. I tried and tried again but still, nothing came out. I tried shaking my sister who was sleeping beside me but she won't wake up. She was getting nearer and nearer, and then, I woke up.
I was freaked out. I was shaking. I didn't go back to sleep then. Fearing that I'd be trapped in my dreams. I still can remember that night 5 years ago.
