Dreamless Guy

Dreamless Guy

A Story by Henk Jeksen

A dreamless guy dreams to have dream...

Dreams. People live by their dreams. A person is as big as his dream a well known person said. Although Khalid is not a known person, I'm concerned about him. The young man who never have dream. But he is a good thinker. Thinks about a lot of stuffs. Wishes to do and have something 'thing' now and in future. Is this things are called dreams? I don't know. Maybe he doesn't know either.
Now he is dreaming to be a writer of a best seller. Willing to earn fame. That's what people do, don't they? Fame, Wealth, Power. All of these are right connected with each others. Don't going to describe. Currently he is finding a story idea and write it down.

He also wanted to be a journalist. But he thinks Journalism is a business at the end of the day. Really it is. In the other hand, writer can write whatever he wants, thinks, dreams, knows, not knows. No barrier. The limit is the sky.

Khalid is a don't know what. Started studying or having a degree in Journalism by 2018. By luck and then by having no choice. It started from then. Going to talk about present. Okay? Past is past.

14 Jan, 2020, at 10.10pm, Right here in his bed, he is sitting now. Thinking to write something. Something that will make a good writing. Lots of things is going on his head. He feels like falling asleep. Lots of things are waving before his eyes. His eye lashes is weighting slowly. Deep he dives in. May be he'll dream tonight, or not, who knows?

Dream is not what you see when asleep, dream is that you watch when awaken, that well known man said this too. Dam man, That man talked a lot about dreams.

In his big mansion, at a dark wooden table nowhere between the hillsize bookshelves full of books, Khalid is sitting there. Thinking of lots stuffs. Even past. A smile glowed in his aged face.
