The Pretty Blonde

Six years.  How has it been that long already?

I drive along a road on my way to meet him.  I love how I still get excited to see him, even though I see him every day.  These six years have gone by so fast.  Sure, we’ve had our ups and downs.  Hasn’t everyone?  We always get through it though.  We always weather the storms.

I think back to our first date, a drunken fiasco.  We laugh about it now, joking that it’s the only way a first date should go.  We’ve been through six Christmases, twelve birthdays, and date nights that are too many to count.  He’s everything to me.

I pull in to the building to pick him up and rush inside.  He sees me, smiles, and runs over to give me a kiss.  He still does that after six years.  I get kissed for no reason.  He pulls back but his face has changed.  I turn around to see a pretty blonde girl running towards the building.  She bounds into the room, runs up to him and throws herself in his arms.

She kisses him.

I step back.

I feel sick as I try to figure out what is happening.  He looks at me in shock, obviously concerned but not enough to put the pretty blonde down.  She turns around, disengaging herself from him, and asks, “Who’s she?”.  He grabs her hand while I stare on in horror.

I run out of the building and back to my car.  I race down the street, block after block screaming past me as I try to see through the tears.

The curve in the road comes so fast that I don’t even have time to react.  It’s too late.  Everything goes black.

That’s when I wake up.  Every time.

  1. I’m going to go ahead and give you more than a one word response to that. Sucker! You totally got pwnd by that dude in your dream! Ha Ha! And he does it to you all the time. You really should get a better dream boyfriend.

  2. I had the same kind of dream when I first met my guy. Turned out he later cheated with the same woman my dream tried to warn me about 5 years earlier. Same name and everything. Could be a good warning to avoid danger.

    1. That’s crazy! You’re like a prophet 🙂 I’ve always thought it has to do with some sort of insecurity I have or just a general fear of losing him. I just wish it would stop. It is always the start of an insomnia cycle for me. I haven’t slept in days!

    1. That’s the problem! I can’t 😦 I’m exhausted and still can’t sleep. This dream always starts a mini-bout of insomnia that lasts about a week. Drives me crazy!!

      1. No, you’re fine! I thought the same thing. My main man in the dream and I are doing great and I don’t worry about anything with him so I don’t think it’s that. I’d much rather be having the naked in class dream…. this one sucks!

      2. it’s a weird dreams are so interesting, usually there’s some fear or something… maybe you’re ready for the next step, but unsure of it.. i don’t know, but i could think about it all day. 😉
        and i’ve had the naked class one.. .that’s not good either. 😉

      3. “maybe you’re ready for the next step, but unsure of it” – That’s an interesting theory that I hadn’t thought about…

  3. I had a recurring dream that my boyfriend left me for his college girlfriend. Seven weeks before our wedding he left me for his college girlfriend. That was 1992 and they are still married.

    But I also have those dreams where I can’t find my college class, haven’t been going, didn’t do the reading and have a final. That one’s about stress. Duh. 🙂

    1. Holy moly! I don’t even know what to say to that! I don’t know who the pretty blonde is. I couldn’t even tell you what she looks like in the face. It’s strange!

  4. I have a really nasty recurring dream. Ive finally figured out that it comes when I am trying to avoid something uncomfortable in my life. I think it happens because it is so bad that its distracting and like you I don’t sleep and then I also don’t have to deal with the thing Im avoiding…What a psycho mess I am!

    1. Hah! Not psycho 🙂 Mine comes so randomly and I feel it comes at a time when I’m dealing with a particular thing … I just haven’t figured out what that particular thing is 🙂

  5. Next time you have this dream you should just say to her, “wouldn’t you like to know,” flip your hair over your shoulder and casually walk away. Then YOU’LL haunt HER dreams.

    1. No! I couldn’t even tell you what she looks like. It is one of the few things I can never remember!

  6. I like Icecreammama’s theory. It’s also good to know that we have a professional dream analyst (as I am now dubbing her) over at Yeah Write. All the best to you. That nightmare is just awful. How could one sleep after that?

    1. Hah! You hear that Icecreammama!?! 🙂 I don’t sleep after it, unfortunately. It seems to have only lasted 3 nights this time though which I believe is a record for shortest amount of time ruining my life! Hah!

    1. Ugh … I hate just thinking about that! I don’t know if I could fly if that was my recurring nightmare!

  7. That is horrible! I used to have dreams about vampires (WAY before all of the vampire fads) only I never knew until it was too late. I haven’t had those dreams in a long time now. Wonder why? Hope yours stops too!

    1. Thanks! I hope it does too … Nowadays, I would welcome the vampire dream so long as he looked like Eric Northman 🙂

    1. Right?!? I can’t think of ONE good dream that I’ve had multiple times. It’s just not fair!!! (throws hissy fit)

  8. That dream just sucks! My worst recurring nightmare is being chased by werewolves, in the dark, through the woods. Since I tend to avoid the woods after dark it’s not likely this will ever happen. And people tell me werewolves aren’t real but, I think they lie to try to get me into the dark woods … I used to complain about it but yours? Nope, you win. I’ll take the werewolves.

    1. Hah! I think they’re lying too. Werewolves totally exist! I have the serial killer dream but it just doesn’t scare me like this one does. Hate it!
