Descriptive Essay

Extracts from this document...


Just a Dream I had a very unusual experience. It felt like something that I had never felt before. I have felt fear before, but never so real like the one I had in this particular experience. I never imagined that dreams can become so realistic. It is a dream that I will never forget. Maybe it is not a dream that you may think is unusual, because things like these happen every day, but it was unusual to me because it was just a dream and none of it was real. It all started on a rainy morning day. I was running late to work, and I forgot to lock the door to my apartment. I did not remember until I was at work, but I was already late, so I just forgot about it. I really did not worry much about my home being unlocked because I did not think anything bad would happen, besides it was the first time that I had left the apartment unlocked. ...read more.


Then I started hearing noises, I still thought that maybe it was just all in my head. All of a sudden I heard something break in the kitchen, that's when I knew that it was not just my mind. There was really someone inside. Filled with fear I ran to the room to try to find the gun that my husband had hidden in the closet, but I could not find it. Whoever was inside my apartment knew that I had heard him/her. I was so scared, and I did not know what to do. I got under the bed hoping that the intruder would not see me. I had horrifying thoughts in my mind, and at the same time I asked myself if this person that was in my apartment was there to steal or to kill me. Moments later, I heard footsteps heading to the room where I was hiding. ...read more.


With an exhausted voice he asked, "Are you ready to die?" I was speechless and without a doubt in my mind I knew this heartless man was about to kill me. While he was pointing his gun to my head I was having flashbacks of my life. Then when he was about to pull the trigger I woke up from that horrible nightmare that felt so real. I was breathing so hard, I felt as if I had actually been running. My heart was pounding so hard that it felt like it was going to fall off. I had tears in my eyes, and I was so grateful that it was all just a dream. Overall that has been my most unusual experience ever. I have had nightmares before, but I had never had a nightmare that felt as if I had experienced in real life. This nightmare made me realize that anything can happen when you least expect it. I always here in the news about thieves killing people in their homes, but I guess I never realized the fear they go through. ...read more.

    I wandered curiously along the hall out of the house and took the path that beckoned me to explore the kitchens. This part of the school was much more modern and revealed an element of liveliness and excitement. The dining hall was probably the most used room of the school.
