Nightmares

Hi! I hope you enjoyed the last post: My Childhood Dream prompt.
Have you ever had a nightmare? Where you think it's real? I have them all the time. When I have a nightmare I hug the blanket tightly, crouching into a ball. It feels so real. I can feel the hot breath of the monster, who is breathing down my neck. I can see flashes of red and orange. It makes me think of a fire. I think that if I lay still enough, the monster will go...
No. It is still there. Suddenly, a feel a hot burst of air. I let go of my blanket just for a second and I feel my body covered with green, oozing slime. I am trapped. The next few minutes seem so unreal, so terrifying. Then I wake up, and to my relief there is NO green oozing slime covering my body, NO monster, NO hot bursts of air. It was just a nightmare. When I have nightmares I sometimes wake up, heart pounding heavily. I run to the attic and lock myself in. Then I see a rat in there, so my heart starts pounding all over again. I release a scream, a frightening loud scream, and my mother runs in, shouting my name over and over again. All I can hear is "Missi, Missi," and weird noises, like a door slamming over and over again, cats wailing, fire engines roaring. I'm helpless, just lying there. I sometimes feel like I'm the only one who gets these sorts of nightmares. Do you?
