Chapter 01 First Dream

The Forest of Lost Dreams

It was a dark and stormy night when Sarah went to bed. As she drifted off to sleep, she found herself in a strange and eerie dream. She was walking through a dark forest with no end in sight, the only sound was the rustling of leaves beneath her feet. She had an uneasy feeling in her stomach like she was being watched.

 As she walked deeper into the forest, she noticed that the trees were becoming more and more twisted and gnarled. The sky turned blood red, and the air became thick with ominous fog. She heard footsteps behind her and turned around to see a figure emerging from the mist. It was a man with a twisted grin on his face, his eyes glowing red in the darkness.

 Sarah tried to run, but her feet were rooted to the spot. The man got closer and closer, his twisted grin growing wider and more menacing. He reached out a bony hand towards her, and she screamed as she woke up, drenched in sweat.

 As she caught her breath, Sarah realized that the dream was still with her. The twisted trees, the red sky, and the man with glowing eyes were all still lingering in her mind. She tried to shake it off and go back to sleep, but every time she closed her eyes, she found herself back in that nightmare forest.

Days turned into weeks, and Sarah's dreams only got worse. The man with glowing eyes started to follow her into her waking life, appearing at the edges of her vision when she least expected it. She started to see him everywhere she went, in every dark corner and every shadowy alleyway.

 The man with glowing eyes became an obsession for Sarah. She stopped sleeping, stopped eating, and stopped going outside. Her only comfort was the feeling of the bony hand reaching out to her in her dreams, beckoning her to join him in the dark forest.

 One night, Sarah gave in to the man with glowing eyes. She followed him into the twisted forest, the blood-red sky above her head. As they walked deeper and deeper into the darkness, Sarah realized that she was no longer afraid. She was home.

 The next morning, Sarah's family found her lifeless body in her bed, a twisted grin on her face and her eyes glowing red. The man with glowing eyes had claimed another victim, and Sarah had found her way to her eternal nightmare.
