Robert Frost…If You Only Knew

Welcome to GirlieOnTheEdge. Thank you Josie and ivy for creating/hosting such a challenging and enjoyable blog hop! This is my second consecutive Thursday participating in Six Sentence Stories. I’m going to shoot for a trifecta but until then….

I woke, content. Walking a dream landscape that was at once endlessly familiar, comfortable, I wandered as if time was not at issue in spite of a nagging feeling that it was. Not quite able to put my finger on it, I couldn’t shake the feeling that all was not as it should be.

“But Dr. Gordon – you said there was a chance the coma wouldn’t be permanent, that there was a chance she’d come out of it!”

“Yes, Mrs. Fontaine, I did say that… 12 years ago. I’m so very sorry, but I really think it’s time”.

    will, perforce, ask the obvious, yet un-asked question…” when can you ever know that you’ve awoken?

      Ah! You have a knack for asking the proper questions Clark.
      Indeed. How can any one of us be sure…
      As a clark, I believe in the possibility of self awakening.
