An unmemorable point of light
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 .
