This morning, I had the scariest nightmare in my life.
When someone said about scariest nightmare, people might think that it was about ghost or monsters…but not for me. What I had yesterday morning is far scarier than ghost and monsters.
Every day, I wake up at 5 am to have my morning pray (Muslim has 5 prays in one day) and since yesterday was Sunday and I didn’t have to go to work, I slept again after my pray. I woke up before 7 with a terrible shock.
In my dream, I woke up and found a broken turtle egg inside a cloth I usually used as my turtles’ bed. I was surprised knowing none of my turtles are currently gravid. Then, not far from the cloth, I saw Kroten lying still. I touched her and she stayed still, unmoving. I kept poking her and realized that she was not alive anymore.
The dream suddenly moved away to me siting in front of a table in my room…in truth, I don’t have table in my room, it’s too small to put too many furniture. I was writing something and I had Kurome and Papoe inside a small container. The co9ntainer was on my left side.
I touched Kurome and his carapace was so soft as if there was no calcium in it. He was still alive but terribly sick.
I saw Papoe swam sideway and tried to help him to swim properly but instead of swimming properly, he flipped over and sank….I helped him again and he flipped and sank again…this time unmoving.
I remembered clearly how horrified I was in my dream and it scared me to death and instantly woke me up.
It was too terrible to have all three of my babies died one after another…I know that all living creatures will eventually die but not like that, in such a close time. Even in a dream I remember how broken my heart was.
When I woke up…my baby turtles were already awake and busied themselves walking around in my room. I was so pleased to know it was all just a dream. I straight away hugged and kissed Kroten, Kurome and Papoe, praying the dream WILL NEVER COME TRUE…amin.
The reason I share this dream is because I hope by writing this, the dream will remain as a dream FOREVER.
