  • The wolf was huge. He stood at the top of the mountain and he seemed like he was howling but no sound came out of his mouth. Instead he produced a powerful wind.
    There was no wonder in this. The wolf was the Master of the Dream Winds.
    The leaves of the trees were swept by the wind and they whirled around as though dancing at the rhythm of an eerie music. They were no ordinary leaves either; they were cards out of a weird deck. A mysterious hand appeared out of nowhere and it picked the dancing cards at random. Various combinations appeared, but they did not remain in the mind. They were all suppressed when he woke up -all of them apart from the last one.
    Jack the Gambler was staring at the cards in his hand in amazement. Presently he was not dreaming. He was playing at a real game and he was holding a genuine royal flush.
    Jack did his best not to give up his joy by any inappropriate facial expression; he was a professional player, he could not afford such things.
    In his head, he secretly wondered what he had done to please the dream spirit and to be thus compensated. He was not able to figure this out; dreams have their own logic and more often than not, this is not accessible to humans.
    Before showing his hand, Jack sent the Master of the Dream Winds a thousand thanks.
