She couldn't fall asleep, so she decided to shuffle her playlist. When the melody started, she was stuck in her thoughts. The song was so painful. It had a strong feeling that could make someone cry out loud, scream at the top of their lungs.
She began to sob. For no reason, she felt the feeling of emptiness in her heart. It longed for something.
In recent years, she had constantly struggled with demons in her head.
She uttered, I wish to reset my life.157Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡd8qWOUuZCO
She remembered the numerous times she prayed to God, but there was no answer. Several times she fell asleep crying, asking for some reason and blaming so many people.
I asked them, do you think I want this? I told them not to show me those hurtful glares.
She has told them several times, but nobody listens. After her breakdown, she immediately fell asleep.
She woke up in a forest. The place was dark and foggy. She has no idea where she is. All she could see were tall trees and grasses. Wondering what the place was, she started to walk. The sound crept her, but the light of the fireflies gave her a mystical feeling. It seemed that those little creatures were guiding her towards nowhere. She had faith in them.
My dad told me that fireflies are special messengers. Follow them if you get lost. They are the hope of the forest.
As I followed them, I found they were leading me on a trail. This is going to be a long way. I cannot see any light coming from people's homes or any indication of human existence. Being alone makes me think a lot. It gives me time to be with myself, but am I in a bad situation right now? Being alone makes me feel sad too. Sometimes, a companion can make one's journey, a little exciting.
She continued walking for ages until she saw a wonderful sight. She looked from a far the wonderful lights from a village. Her thoughts told her that this place may not be sleeping. It is indeed a blessing for her to see hope from a long walk from nowhere. She thought immediately that she needed to go there. She was also tired and hungry from her long journey.
The fireflies were still with her as she went down the hill. For her, the sense of adventure with a bit of nervousness gave Eloise a positive sense of change. She hummed as she walked. She thought of having a long journey, and the reason for waking up in the middle of the forest.
Too stupid, you sleepwalker, that's why you suffer. I'm just worried about whether it will be good for me to go out without anything amid the pandemic. Whatever!
She was still clueless about what was happening. Torn between dream and reality. She hoped to get to the village so that she could ask for help.
I reached the huge gate. It shows me a name, ADHIKA. This must be the name of this village. As I enter the gate, I know that I am now in a different world.ns184.108.40.206da2
