My worst nightmare  

28 November, 2021

Nightmares are very horrible and  unpleasant dreams . They are not real but many astrologers say that, there may be some meaning behind nightmare. Also, scientists have revealed that, there are many reasons behind nightmares, for example neural networks, and health issues But nightmares really scare us. I want to share my worst experience of a nightmare.

When I remember that, sometimes it makes me laugh because it had no meaning Also it’s not real and I was frightened without any special reason.

           It was a dark night. I looked out of the window and saw a light in my neighbour’s kitchen. I knew there was no one at home. Suddenly, power was cut and the windows were shaking very fast. I was chilled by the look of the place. Only a lone street lamp cast a yellow dim light. I heard something behind me. It was a terrifying experience. I didn’t look behind me. I covered myself with my blanket and covered my face with my pillow. At that moment, l listened to dogs barking and the wind blowing very fast. It was also raining with thunder. I shouted louder.

And I was shivering and sweating. I was about to cry. Then someone was knocking behind me. Suddenly, I opened my eyes screaming. It was my mother who slept next to me. Now I realise, it was a bad nightmare.

That was too scary and frightening.

Nightmares are usually a result of unhealthy conditions.
