Original Text: The Field 22


Like a pious painting, beams of sunlight spreading across the large cotton white clouds almost to announce the coming presence of God. She just stood there staring at the light beams across the clouds as if-, it reminded her of something long ago. Although the scenery was beautiful, she was afraid. It could have been a-, a dream, and a bad dream, yes-, maybe that’s what it was, but she new that she wasn’t the only one to have such dreams. Once at school, Charlie Beaudion had came up with the subject as a couple of friends were talking about their dreams. But what astonished her the most was that it resembled the same kind of bad dream as hers. He said that in his dream Normand Chassé and her self accompanied him. It had to do with a beam of light that immobilized them. Although they all tried desperately to escape from it, they could not. She wondered if Normand Chassé could have had the same dream, but if he did, he never said anything about such a dream.
