The bed box

She was sitting on this dim corner of the cave, very peaceful, not even caring that she had lost her way, and that she was away from the company that she had entered with. The place was unnervingly silent, and the cool setting was a bit too much for her to take. Still, she sat there motionless and tranquil not thinking about the consequences. She knew someone would ultimately find her. She was also aware that subconsciously she wanted no one to discover her, and stay completely lost in her own world, hidden away from everything else.

That is when I woke up, realising that I was sleeping inside the bed box- the extra bed that the hotel provided. With that dream ending unexpectedly I could only hope for someone to come and push the bed box inside the bed and let me just sleep and to know that if she is eventually able to stay away from everything?

    1. Thanks dear.
      Well, with exams over, I have a lot of travelling to do this month. My brother is going to college and then we have a trip to my grand-ma. She is very well, and then there is a cousin get together by the end of the month. So pretty exhausting I guess. 😀
      What are you up to?

      2. I know, and now I remember how scared you were with your exams, and this admission stuff!
        Don’t worry, all will be fine.
        It might not work your way, but it will work the best way.
        So where are you headed first? Delhi? What college, course?
        Just curious. 😀

      4. That’s very good and interesting!
        You sound way more positive, and confident this time. Good going Mr.
        I had a friend in Delhi, she studied in Jamia Milia too. I hope you get through a good college there in D.U (Possibly wherever you want) But don’t you worry much, I know the cut off there is always high and it’s quite competitive everywhere.
        All the very best, and do let me know whatever happens!!
        Believe it or not it will happen for your own good.

  1. That’s why you should sleep ok the bed for good dreams.

    And so as to what happened to her, she found the strength to be in her own, but she found the company that would make her whole. 🙂
