An invasion is coming, be ready.
I had only the night to prepare for everything that might happen at any moment, if in the event of not being ready, well i won’t expect a happy ending anytime soon. I had a mission, a mission more important than my own life. protecting myself and my family from a secret invasion that only a few knew about. i simply happened to be one of the lucky or unlucky few, i could have died and i wouldn’t know about it. but survival is the only thing im looking forward to do. For that i didn’t have much of a choice but to get my stuff together and be ready at any moment of disaster. All night just like that, awake and waiting while everyone slept happily it was all one me and whoever knew about it beforehand. My heart is racing at top speed but then just at that moment my wife woke up and it happened, she saw me and knew something was wrong. i didn’t want to frighten her so i said “Hey honey, just woke up to get some water, did a nightmare woke you up?” she replied ” No i woke up because i thought i heard a sound of some noise getting louder”. i knew it at that moment, my heart started making sounds so loud it was impossible to not feel it’s presence. I try to assure her that she’s imagining it and she got back to sleep. Thankfully that night the invasion didn’t happen. i would never forget that feeling, the isolation. the sweat, the heart beating. While that night was safe. Not every night is safe. But i’m glad i got to live another day with my beloved ones.
A friend is all i got at night.
it was a cold night, i was sitting outside with my friend, we were in an abandoned park,entry is free, and also no one comes to it at all, never, not at night at least. when its full moon the playground metals shines and gives off a cool effect, we just came there to see it and chat over it. “anything interesting while i was gone?” i answer him,”i feel like the most interesting things happen at night, i read that in a book called (story of the nights)” he replies “well that sure is interesting, mind if i borrow it as soon as you finish it?, what i’m i saying, of course i will take it! that’s why we are friends you know haha”, i reply “you got it haha”. it was an awesome night, even tough it wasn’t very eventful, just simple fun talk. its a special day because its not special, well to that kind of effect.
Unable to sleep and i need to do something.
i had an important job to do so i was coming home late, i had but one thing to do at the time, to just go to my bedroom and sleep. however that didn’t happen, not as easily as i had wanted anyway. i feel exhausted yet i couldn’t shut my eyes off, seeing that its no use, i get up and try to do something better with my time, after all time is limited.
i rest my mind and tell myself “i gotta write the important stuff, so that i wont forget them”. i write down all the names of people that are important to me, and some simple explanation to how they are important to me. now i wont say they are many, because really they are numbered by my right hand fingers. i proceed to write about things i want to accomplish and do with my life in the next few years, adding some goals here and there, one of these goals is “i want my life to be simple enough so that nothing complicated will happen, a simple person will always get away from trouble because, well they are simple!”, i say that with a serious expression, even though maybe i was too serious. that night was just that rough, guess i wasn’t simple enough to sleep happily without going to the extremes.
