When Dreams Come True
by Angelina Rain
They say dreams can foretell the future.
I was fifteen when I had that dream, and I was thirty-five in it. It was a rainy April day when my super hunky husband wheeled me into a book store. All the book shelves were lined with one book, a yellow cover with a sad looking girl in the corner of it. The name, Angelina Rain, was plastered on the cover in a maroon font. Although it’s not my real name, I knew in the dream that it was me. The book was an international bestseller, the biggest book to hit the bookshelves in years, and there was a line of people waiting to see me and have me sign the book for them.
I woke up and the dream replayed in my head, over and over. I just knew that someday I would be a bestselling author. Although I’m far from being a bestseller, ten years after the dream, a part of it did come true.
In the dream I was beautiful and my husband was a hunky blue-eyed blond who was possibly younger than me. In reality, he’s a hazel-eyed brunette who is seven years older than me. Will I divorce and remarry in the next ten years? I choose not to think about that. In the dream, I was in a wheelchair. I pray that part doesn’t come true.
The thing that stayed with me the most was the plot. For ten long years I’ve been reminded of the tragic and courageous life of the main character. Will I ever write that book? I guess you’ll just have to wait and see.
Angie’s Fun Fact: Some of my plot ideas come to me in the form of dreams.
