“Standing there in my party dress. In red lipstick. With no one to impress.”

She fell asleep, and that’s when she saw herself getting out of her red convertible Mini Cooper car this time. Wearing her red dress, with her red lipstick and her black eyeliner. She smiled at the security men, giving the keys again to the valet parking man, and ran quickly into the hall. Everyone looked at her, wondering why she was running. The hall was different from the previous dream’s hall, the tables, the people, she didn’t know anyone.

She left the hall, looking around hoping to find a chair, a tree or an empty place so she could find him. But no, he wasn’t anywhere. She went to the security to ask them, but she didn’t know what to say, she didn’t even know his name. She went back inside the hall and picked some table so she could stand next to it. And kept waiting, while drinking the strawberry red juice.

She watched everyone. Everyone was different from the previous time. Even her friends, they were not there, and his friends too were not there. She looked all around the hall, everything was different, there was no big wall like the previous hall. She stood quietly looking at the entrance door, hoping for him to show up there.

It was 12:00 am, and she was still waiting, but he didn’t show up. She started to feel upset and gave up leaving the hall. She went towards the doors but the security wasn’t there. She tried to open the doors but they were locked. She started looking around, until she found a balcony that had little stairs that she could turn around, and move to where the valet parking was. She raised her head, looking at the sky. She went down the stairs, and while she was turning left, she suddenly smelled his perfume.

She didn’t look back. She stood in her place, closing her eyes. Few seconds later, he put his lips beside her right ear, whispering from behind her, “Were you leaving without seeing me?” She opened her eyes, and her heart skipped a beat. She turned slowly looking at him. He leaned a little bit towards her, his face was so close, then he whispered, “I promised you that I’ll see you again in your dreams, and here I am.” She was about to say something but a danger alarm rang from the left side, they both looked at their left side.

The cute girl immediately woke up, and turned her face looking left at the alarm. Then she pulled up her phone reading, (Wake up, you have a test today.) She turned off the danger alarm, then she threw her phone away, rubbing her head. She went to the bathroom, looking at herself in the mirror, saying, “I was looking so pretty this time, and he was so close. We didn’t catch up to dance, and he couldn’t promise he’d see me again. And I didn’t know his name so I can ask about him next time.” Then she sighed. She opened the tap to wash her face then said, sadly, “I’m not okay, I’m not okay at all today.”
