Dream


.
This week the prompt over at Sunday Scribblings is Big Dreams. Dreams don’t come much bigger than this!
It had been an amazing night. A wonderful party, fantastic food and great company. Champagne sparkled, wine flowed and cocktails dazzled. Now as they drove home she slept in the seat next to him as he headed into the night
The empty road stretched out before him like a silver ribbon as the moon cast a glistening sheen over a frosty landscape.
Swaying trees looked down like angels, and wispy clouds hanging in the heavens beckoned him. A million twinkling stars drew his gaze skyward, as if promising something better beyond. A voice on the radio seemed to whisper his name then gave way to stream of soothing music. It was like a dream, a beautiful dream.
But was it a dream or even a premonition? Was it reality? She survived the accident, but he simply disappeared. Did he flee the scene or did he go to another place? A place only he has seen.
