Last night, I dreamt I was talking to My mother again. She never talks back, and I can never see her, not really. Its always a blur, sometimes it's like I can see her clearly, but then in a flash, its like I never saw her at all. I don’t remember what My birth mother looks like, I saw her only once, my father says. You see, I was adopted when I was just an infant, my parents heard a knock on their door about a week before Christmas and there I was, swaddled in a cloth in a basket,he said it was exactly like you saw in the movies. Of course in real life you can't just bring a baby inside and raise it, there was apparently a lot of paperwork, and a lot of fighting. My adoptive mother never really wanted me, but

In my effort to be out the door, my foot snags on the carpeting on one of the steps, causing me to inhale with fear, I attempt to grab the railing but my hand slips. I drop my jacket in an attempt to right myself, but to no avail. I can see the carpeted, but hard steps coming towards me at full speed, almost as if I’m in a different body, I see my pale hand outstretching to divert the impending fall, even though I can hear myself thing, clear as day, that if my head collides with those steps, I’m not gonna walk away with just a concussion.

I wasn’t sure where I was going, I think I can hear people chasing me, but I can only run for so long. ‘Freaking asthma..’ I complained in my head as I took random turns trying to find a set of stairs or something. I could feel myself slowing down as my breathing became harder. I need to hide to catch my breath, I spot an elevator and hurriedly push the button. I can definitely hear them coming now, I push the button a bunch more times, even though I knew it wouldn't help it come faster. Finally, like a miracle, the elevator doors opened with a ping and I rushed into the elevator without a second thought and went towards the control panel hopelessly looking for a close button, but everything looked like gibberish to me as I looked up I could see the cat lady point me out to some more cat ladies. I looked back to the control panel in panic as they got closer to the elevator, only to see a finger push one of the buttons, making the door close. I couldn’t resist smirking as I realized that the door would close before they found me, I grinned at gave a goodbye salute with two fingers as the doors
