It wasn't even past eight when she ran into her room. She didn't bother and change her clothes as she simply slid under the covers. She cocooned herself in her bed hurriedly, unable to hold back the smile that crept up her face. She knew that she had acquired a new set of dreams this evening. Dreams that will be haunting her for a very long time.
She'd banished every other memory on her way home. This one dream was so majestic it seemed unfit to share anything with it. She feared a picture of her precious moment would seep through the smile she couldn't hide and someone would catch it and drag her back into the dull silent world.
It was a kiss that lasted seconds, but in her head it was a cinematic that went on for hours. Her heart pounded so viciously to the point she thought the sound alone could fill the entire world around her. She recalled her kiss, a blush creeping on her cheeks.
She closed her eyes tightly as she stirred in bed. Maybe her dream will go on if she goes to sleep. She tried so hard but failed. The pounding was getting louder with each passing minute. She almost thought the neighbors would complain about the noise, or maybe her mother will start questioning her sudden rush to her room.
She glanced at herself in the mirror. She was beautiful, yet her beauty felt different today. Another smile crossed her lips, but she moved away from her reflection. It may reveal her secret. True her mirror was her best friend, but even her mirror couldn't share her dream, not today at least. She opened the door and went out to her family. She joined them in silence, and pretended not to care as she distracted herself with the voices from television though she couldn't understand a single word of what was being said. Her mind was at a stand still. It refused to take one step further.
Everyone else fell asleep. Her body was exhausted and drained by then, though her soul had only awakened hours ago, and still soared in the memories. She'd chosen to stay awake till her spirit comes down again and settle within her body. Yet she couldn't take it any longer as she grabbed her phone. She enjoyed the tone the numbers gave as she tapped them hurriedly and bit her lip as it rang on the other side before his voice came through.
"Say it again!"
She heard him chuckle before the word formed through his lips over and over again.
"Love, love, love, till the world stands still love,"
