Eyes looking without seeing

Eyes looking without seeing

A Story by Chloe Ram

Short story

Turquoise spent several nights dreaming the same thing. In her dream, she saw herself in a cage, under a pool of ice water, and in front of her, a group of people asked continously hatch so that she would fall into the water.
The sound of the clock-radio rescued Turquoise from her nightmare.
She was still half asleep, but when she looked out through the window of her room ...
And there were those eyes again, that man's eyes, from the terrace in front her, looking at her without blinking, he looked ridiculous wearing his cartoon character pijamas, how old could he be?. Maybe he was in his 60s. Turquoise wondered why this man did not lock the door of his balcony in the evenings, because he was a sleepwalker and some day he could have an accident.
Although all the residents in the street knew that this neighbor was sleepwalking, Turquoise felt uneasy whenever she looked out of her window and she was worried when she saw the way he was looking at her. It seemed that he did not belong to this world. Those eyes that watched her without seeing.
