Nightmares of fire burned in her dreams again.
But this time it felt real.
Lorrain opened her eyes to see the familiar flicker of orange flames. She leaped up and noticed she was still in her bedroom in the Shack. Her entire bed was on fire! Lorrain froze there in the middle of the fire.
The fire wasn’t hurting her.
Lorrain stood still and made herself relax. Like magic, the fire slowly subsided without ash or ember to be found. Lorrain sat back down on her bed stunned.
Did she just put out that fire herself?
Had she made the fire? Lorrain looked at her hands. They looked normal but her body felt warm and sweaty. She got out of the bed and gave it a good look over to see if there was something under her bed but there was nothing. Then she thought about yesterday.
