Dreamy Night

When his eyes opened,  he found himself in a dark forest naked. Everything was still and motionless,  closing his eyes,  he tried to remember how he got there but he had no memories to look back into.  His mind a blank slate.  The pitch black forest made it hard for him to see, he got up and slowly started to move,  not having any sense of direction he went with his instincts. The earth was damp under his paws,  far away he could see a source of light.  He was hungry,  he knew he needed to feed. He smelled something familiar,  something he recognized,  but couldn’t remember.  As he approached the source of the light,  he saw the headlights of a car and a man changing the tyres. The light of the full moon made his eyes  grow wide as he got out of the dense forest. The old man didn’t seem to notice him as he slowly came closer,  I moving carefully,  he had been here before he remembered,  he knew how to do it,  he knew what he had to do. This mad hunger took control of him as he approached the man,  he opened his jaws wide, and ‘SNAP’…
He woke suddenly in bed,  scared. He turned the lights on to make sure that he is in his home,  safe.  He hadn’t told anybody of these weird dreams he had been having ever since that one college party in the woods. People would judge him he had told himself. And they are just dreams anyway he thought. He got out of his bed and went to the kitchen,  the lights turned on as he entered it. As he pulled a chair to sit, his fridge lit up and greeted him.
“would you like a drink,  sit? “,  it asked.
“yeah,  actually I am quite thirsty”
“would like to try O negative tonight,  sir?”
“yes, I don’t think I have ever tried that one before”,  he answered.
The front lid opened to reveal a glass filled with chilled red liquid,  he grabbed it and thanked the fridge.  He put a straw in the glass and sucked, as the blood entered his mouth,  it sent a shiver throughout his body. ‘AHHHH..HUH NOO’
He got back in his feet, with laughter and mocking of his class fellows,  his clothes all muddy.  This was the third day in a row they had put a curse on him and made him do stuff against his will. But he was too scared to fight and stand up for himself or to tell his professors or anyone else. But this needed to stop.  Every time he ended up in the same place with mud on his clothes and same weird dream. He had no friend to talk to or share it with. There was a girl he liked, but he was just too shy to even talk to her and he also had no reason to believe that a girl like Lucy will ever be interested in anyone like him.  Girls like confident strong guys he had heard and he was anything but confident or strong.  He want bad on studies and he did fairly well in practical magic too. But something was missing. He didn’t know what. School yule ball was approaching and his mom had sent him a very nice dancing robe. Thus was his chance to make a move,  to ask out Lucy. He gathered whatever courage he had in him and went to ask her after their potions class. He was waiting for her to finish talking with her friends.
“I will see you guys in maths later”,  she told them and started walking towards her dorm. He ran a but to catch up with her.
“hi Lucy, I was wondering if you would be interested in going to the yule dance with me if you already don’t have a partner?”
“oh! Hi! You are?”
“oh I am so sorry,  I am Henry, we have potions and history together” you idiot,  you blew your chance for sure he thought.
“hi Henry! I actually do not have a date for yule,  so I would love to go with you”
What!? He couldn’t believe what he heard,  but he was grateful he didn’t say what he thought,  he said instead,”see you at 8pm tonight”
“alright see you later,  Henry”, she waved him bye.
He stood there trying to absorb and take it all in, he was going to the yule ball with Lucy. Oh my gods!
The next few hours flew by quick and it was 8, he had dressed in his dancing robes ready to go see the girl he had dreamed about ever since year 1 of school. As he was walking towards the main hall,  he could see Lucy waiting him at the door from far,  all he wanted to do was run to her,  but he must be patient, smiling he continued walking but his sight was cut by them. They had come again to humiliate him. He knew what was coming, he would once again end up being a laughing stock of everyone,  face down in mud.  Not this time. He felt different,  he felt something he never felt before.  Not this time he said in his mind. “not today!”, he yelled aloud to them. They made a move,  but he was ready,  he disarmed two of them but the third one got to him and knocked him to the ground,  his wand sliding his hands,  he looked at them with horror on his face,  from far he could still see Lucy waiting him, but she didn’t see him, they all surrounded him,  all three of them pointing their wands at him. “how dare you,  you pathetic little mud blood filth!”, spat one of them. ‘AVADA…. CRASH…’
He woke as he fell to the floor. “ouch”, again the same dream, There is no such as magic! he exclaimed in his head and got up to open his window. The sun was coming out and there was already traffic in the air with school busses flying the young ones to their education centres.  While the more privileged ones were being carried by their parent in a jetsuit. He folded his bed to the wall and pulled out the toilet while putting on his glasses for morning news. After being washed he took his breakfast pill and flew to work in his car.
