The other side is a story I’ve been working on for some time now but I thought I would give you a sneak peek or idea where it’s going.
I fell asleep one night and, in my dreams, I saw a doorway, it had nothing but what looked like a portal or passage to another place or maybe another time.
There wasn’t anything around it and no walls it was just there as if it appeared from nowhere.
I wanted to pass through it and see what was on the other side but I also had a thought, what if it disappeared as quickly as is appeared and without a trace that it was ever there, how would I get back, how would anyone know where I had gone.
The only thing that I could tell about it was that it seemed peaceful and I could have sworn I heard a song coming from it and this really bothered me and made me think maybe I shouldn’t go there because the song playing was one that I had only known from my grandmother when she sang to me at night. Never before had I heard the song and after she passed, I never heard it again.
I tried finding the song when I grew older but there was no record of it anywhere, I searched. No libraries, no websites, nothing as if it never existed.
As I watched the doorway I saw many places and many times slip by as if I were watching a slideshow.
At one point I saw a young man, I walked closer, then a little closer and I could feel the air coming from the doorway, as I stood there a scent of something cooking became very strong and as I took a deep breath the man turned and looked at me. With no words, he smiled and held out his hand in a gesture for me to take it and pass through the doorway.
I took his hand and stepped through the passage, I turned and could see my room in the doorway but now it looked more like a kaleidoscope slowly turning with all the images from before changing within it.
LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO READ MORE. If enough do I’ll post a few more and we can go from there.
