A girl dreamt she was being chased by a stranger. The girl ran and ran, shouting for help, but soon she was caught and knifed to death. She woke up screaming.
One day she was strolling in a park, when she
spotted a man walking towards her. To her shock, he looked exactly like
the man who murdered her in her dream. She panicked and ran straight to a
nearby telephone box to call her friend, thinking she could get help.
The man, while she was still on the phone, walked right past her. The
girl, relieved, got out of the telephone box and started walking again.
But she was astonished to find that once again the same man was coming
towards her. Her heart was beating hard and her hands turned clammy with
cold sweat. She was aware that this time she had nowhere to hide. She
looked down and tried to walk quickly past him. And then, just as they
passed each other, the girl heard the man mutter under his breath; “Why
the hell is it different from the dream?”
