An unmemorable point of light

An unmemorable point of light                


Written by

Sami Suliman ALsulmi



    IT IS NOW NECESSARY to tell the truth  as far as I can remember . 

Succinctly it is  :


   At the time of a dull , gloomy , overcast ,and soundless night  in the fall of this year , every member of my family got into bed .My computer made me feel drowsy . Having felt drowsy vigorously , in haste I crawled towards my bed endeavoring to switch the light off as best I could .                                                                                                         


     The chamber's furniture was charming and shiny .And also the large window was    covered with a tremendous curtain . My books and cassettes lay scattered about .     Emitting from my computer screen, a tiny green light was gleaming on the opposite wall .  

     The chamber's atmosphere  got so dark that I could scarcely see the furniture . Having lain on my bed , I could hardly keep my eyes closed .A sense of insufferable anxiety      pervaded my spirit and an odd fancy grew in my mind ; I cried  " No …. No. "                  

My lids uplifted whenever I endeavored to shut my eyes . I struggled to surmount the nervousness which had dominion over me .My heartbeats began to harmonize with the ticks of the alarm clock until I dozed .                                                                             


    Seconds and minutes elapsed and the chamber was wholly tranquil . Without advance notice , there shot a tumultuous and indefinite tinkle like the sound of a drum. An irrepressible tremor pervaded my frame .Simultaneously , there sat upon my very heart an incubus of  justifiable alarm .Overpowering an intense sentiment of horror ,unendurable, I threw my blanket , uplifted myself with a gasp and paced rapidly to and fro through the chamber . I took a few turns in this manner. And in the course of pacing , a luminous , beamy, and white light arrested my attention .But my brain reeled as I saw the shiny walls . And then , I felt that I breathed an atmosphere of horror . Meanwhile I tried hard   to peer into the source of the light .                                                                                   


    At length , I realized that my cellular phone received a message from one of my close friends. I sought to take a look at it and spotted that it brought glad tidings :                       

"I can't forget you ,It takes a minute to have a crush ,an hour to like someone ,and a day to love someone ,but it takes a lifetime to forget someone you love . "                 

All of a sudden my cellular phone toppled from my hand over my left big toe, I fell down on the bed and was soon sound asleep .
