You’re in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.

It’s a medium sized room, I cannot see any windows. I’ve never known, seen or heard of a room without windows.

I was led by an intriguing voice into this room, the moment I  entered, the door locked as if by magic. I was terrified to catch sight of an over-sized statue of Buddha. I looked around I was surrounded by little statues of devotees posed in a way it looked as if  they were offering something to the Buddha.

I wasn’t sure why they were there, and who put them there. Could it be these were stolen by some burglar, who chanced to break open the doors of a museum and collected everything he saw and decorated this room which obviously belongs to him.

What I  do not understand  is,why I’m here? Last time I checked my mind, it did not tell me, that I was a disciple of Buddha, it makes no sense  for me to be in a windowless room.

I’m not sure how long I was there I felt everything in the room was moving including the statues. They were coming closer, suddenly the giant-sized Buddha let out an earth shattering laughter, I let out a scream and fainted.

Next thing I felt was my husband shaking me,”What’s wrong?” He said.

“It’s the Buddha, take me out of here, I can’t breathe, he is coming close, I think he’ll strangle me!” I said.

My husband had a good laugh over this nightmare I had, he told everyone how loud I was  and how comical I looked.

All I said was, “You know what, it’s not funny!”
