Strange Dream

“This just happened a few months ago and blew my mind. My elderly Aunt (90+ years old) was not doing well and staying at a nearby hospital when one night I woke up out of a deep sleep. I looked at my clock and it blinked 4:00am, not thinking anything of it I rolled over and immediately fell back asleep.

The next I thing I know I’m in a very vivid dream where I am sitting in my kitchen holding a baby girl. In the dream I’m consciously aware that it’s still 4am so I’m awkwardly cradling and shushing the baby as to not cry and wake my parents up.

Suddenly there was a knock on the kitchen door and two men in 1950’s style suits, fedoras and pencil thin moustaches were standing outside. Without saying a word I opened the door and gave the newborn to them then watched as they walked down the driveway into the darkness.

I woke up the next morning and immediately remembered everything about the dream. I went down to the kitchen where my mother greeted me with the bad news: ‘Our aunt passed away last night at 4am’.”
