"Sara! Are you OK?!?!" Max's startled voice asks. I'd been woken by my own scream. 

"I'm fine" I gasped. Is it possible to feel things in dreams? 

"Are you sure? What happened?" 

"I... I don't know... I've never felt so much pain in my life..."

"Pain? Sara, tell me" Max pleaded. 

"It was... it was just unbearable pain. I... I don't know... Max, it scared me!" I told him shakily. He hugged me.

"I don't get it. You were sleeping so peacefully and then you screamed." He looked into my eyes. Then he kissed my forehead. "Come on, go back to sleep"

"No, I don't want to. The dream scared me too much. And besides, it's half seven." I said. He took me out of the tent and gave me some breakfast. He scrutinized my every move. Then he came over and sat me on his knee when I finished.

"I'm worried about you. I really am. Your dreams are scaring me and I'm not even having them." he said. I hugged him and closed my eyes.

The End
