Short Story 4. THE ONLY CHOICE

A Chapter by Margaux (Dhaye)
"

One night I had this dream

"


      One night I had this dream. I was walking along a trail in a forest. I was so afraid. I called for help...and then somebody came. It's you. You walked with me in my journey. I was so happy that somebody walked beside me. I knew I was not alone. Not anymore...

      But the trail was becoming so dangerous. I was wounded, and so were you. We continued to walk...and walk. Until I finally saw you running away from me.

          "Wait!" I shouted while trying to follow you.
        "I don't know you. I have my own journey. I'm sorry," you shouted back.

        What shall I do? I tried to follow you but you were already out of my sight. I waited for an hour...which turned into day. It's becoming darker and I feel more scared. Shall I wait for more hours... or days? I give up! I won't wait any longer. You left me with no choice but to walk on my own. I have to be stronger. I have to reach the end of the trail.
So I walked alone...for it was my only choice.

this is so far my favorite from you. (you've written a lot :)) this felt like a splash of water. those moments that you thought you're not alone, then it'll turn out that...well.. you are now. But we persist for our own reasons.

Sometime we have no choice. We must walk alone. I like the thoughts in the story. Thank you for sharing the excellent story.
