safety pins and ribbons chapter 2

When Ella finally fell asleep her dreams were filled with turbulent oceans that sucked her down under their vast waves and enormous swells. She fought to return to the surface but she found the cold, dark  water sucking her under again and again, ignoring her pleas for it to stop. She kicked and thrashed at the force that held her trapped in the oceans mighty grasp, her lungs screaming for oxygen. Finally, she let go and let the tide carry her away, into the deep, until she slipped into an state from which no living being can return. It was at this that she awoke for the second time and lay gasping for breath in twisted bedclothes,  knotted around her like the ocean in her dream- trapping her inside of their impossible hold.

The End
