DP Daily Prompt: Twilight Zone

What I am about to write may sound meaningless, but to me it makes a lot of sense.

A while ago I went to Boston with my family. We had to take care of something and felt it was the right place to get our answers. We were staying in a hotel.

One of my relative was living in Natick at the time . She found out we were in Boston,she sent her husband to take us to her house. My husband was not in favor of it. I thought it was only a matter of a few days what’s the harm. So we went. This person was not at all pleasant,I am mentioning her because she is the most important part of the puzzle.

While we were there she called her brother, he was not well, we didn’t know how sick he was, at least I didn’t. During the phone call he mentioned about his life insurance, he said she was his beneficiary ,but  after his death she should divide the money among all the siblings. This relative said to me, “he is talking about his life insurance and I should divide the money between the siblings.”

A few months after this incidence the brother died. This woman took out  the death certificate and got the money from the insurance company.

I reminded her what the brother said before he passed away, she ignored me and send the message to everyone accusing  me of black mailing her.

Anyway a few months after his passing, I had a dream, in my dream I heard the door bell, I opened the door and it was he, he had a large blanket over his head, I asked him why he didn’t come home at night and where was he. He told me he went to the doctor because he was having problem with constipation. I clearly heard the toilet flush.

When he sat down I told him about the insurance, he smiled and said,”I told her to share it with the rest of the siblings.”

I told him to write a letter  and mention what he said, but the date should be when he was alive.  I saw him writing something he gave me the paper,in it I saw a sketch of a bride and groom,I don’t know who they were. He wrote a whole page, I couldn’t read it.

When I woke up it was six in the morning. I told my husband about it.

It was unbelievable what I dreamt!

Writing Prompt: First light

The first thought that came to my mind was snow. These days all I can see from my window is snow and lots of it. I was thinking let me see did the guy block our driveway again.

You know what that means blocks of snow as hard as rock completely blocking ours and everyone elses’ driveway. You get up in the morning to enjoy tea or coffee and breakfast, but oh no you think of how you’re going to shovel this. So the pleasure of having breakfast is gone.

We turn on the T.V there is more bad news, we are expecting more of the white stuff, and it is going to be a blizzard, it will continue till the next day. What’s worse is the news there is another system getting ready to hit us.

I turn off the T.V. , I say nothing new snow again. Then the question pops up in my mind,will it ever stop?

The result of all this white stuff is the roads are narrow, the sidewalk is slippery, the mailman doesn’t bring any mail. There is nothing to look forward to,but heaps and heaps of the white stuff.

You no longer have to dream about a white Christmas but you might at this point change the lyrics and sing, “I’m dreaming of a green Christmas,where the tree tops are full of leaves and the children breathe a sigh of relief and say,”Oh look there is no snow anymore.”

Isn’t it lovely to see the gorgeous sun,the green grass and the colorful flowers and birds singing?
