I'm not sure how it works exactly. I've tried puzzling it through a time or two, but have yet to draw any definitive answers. At first I thought nothing of it. Why would I? It wasn't until I came across the article in the paper that the first tickle of oddity crept up. There were so many details that matched. Still one main piece was incorrect. The photo in the paper looked nothing as I had dreamed. After a couple more coincidental news episodes, I finally started to realize that there was way more to my dreams than I could have imagined. So, I have decided to starting documenting my dreams and where necessary the real life happenings that coincide with it. Maybe it's all in my head. Maybe these coincidences are just that, coincidences. Maybe I need to watch less television and stop reading the newspaper. Maybe...I'm simply crazy. What ever the case may be, I intend to figure out what exactly is going on.
Melissa closed the journal and sighed. Her eyes looked from the beautifully bound red leather journal to the newspaper lying beside her right arm. Nothing about the person in the picture looked familiar except for the smile. Three nights ago she remembered looking into a mirror and delicately painting those exact lips luscious pink. It was not unusual for her to dream as though she were someone else. She could hardly remember a time where she was herself in a dream. Her fingers traced over the lips jogging the feeling of excitement and anticipation she had felt in the dream. She shook her head firmly and pushed herself back and up out of the chair. "I'm not going there," she said to herself. "Not again."
