“NO! STOP!”

I suddenly bolt up screaming, drenched in cold sweat and panting like I just ran a marathon. I look around, bewildered, trying to get a sense of where I am when I realize that I’m in my bedroom and I was just having a damn nightmare. Even though I knew it was but a dream – for a moment, I couldn’t distinguish where I was and what was reality. I look at my hands and breathe a sigh of relief when I didn’t see any blood just as my brain registers that my sheets are all tangled between my legs and my hair is sticking out all over the place.

“Just a dream. Just a nightmare. Nothing more,” I mumble out as I pass my shaking hands across my face. I’m a trembling mess.

Grabbing my chest and breathing deeply, I close my eyes as I try to tell my heart to calm the fuck down. Easier said than done, I know, but I need to do it if I don’t want to look like a fucking zombie when I go to work later. I know it’s probably very early in the morning since it’s still dark out and I probably have a few more hours for sleep.

Though based on the thundering beats of my heart – I’m not sure if it’s possible for me to go back to sleep. What with the adrenaline that is still pulsing through my whole body. Plus I’m not even sure if I really do want to go back to sleep.

Not if I would be seeing—

Random Thoughts

AMACon :)

I am currently writing a story for a fandom event over at Twitter that we call the #AMACon (AlDub – MaiChard Author Convention).  It’s a fic exchange between different authors and writers from the AlDub/MaiChard fandom.  There’s 52 writers who joined and were invited, me included.  Each writer is partnered up with another one and exchanges prompts from which they would write their fanfiction.  There’s no length and no rating and it could be whatever genre the writer wishes it to be.  Our deadline is on the 22nd which is roughly in 4 days.  And kamusta naman? I am not even halfway done with my story.  Sobrang sabaw ng utak ko! Jusko.  

HELP PLEASE!!! WAAAAAAHHH!!!  😦

So I’m sorry if I haven’t been updating much here and fixing my whole blog.  Just thought I’d let everyone out there who checks this out, know.  I’ll be back to update my poems and some of my short stories soon.  I might post my story here since my prompt was pretty interesting.  🙂
