  • I am in the living room; it's dark and I know that somebody is standing outside before even that anything happens. Someone knocks the door; it opens on its own and the person enters the house. She is a veiled woman; I cannot see her face. But I know that she is there for me; she came to take me and she is up to no good. I am scared to death; I try to shout but no sound comes out of my mouth. She laughs scornfully and takes me with her...
    She takes me at a strange, eerie house and pushes me inside it, ignoring my protests.
    I am brought into a room which is hidden in the eerie house. This room is made out of flowers; there is something creepy in it. My captor compels me to enter the room; I have to stay among plants as I am sick. I have a virus and my place is among those giant viruses. So she says. I reply weakly that I am NOT sick. She does not pay heed to me. The flowers start shaping into something ; at first I cannot say what it is. Then I see that this is a dragon. I am alone in this damned room with a DRAGON!
    Something evil is happening to the dragon; it seems to be suffering...The dragon bleeds badly; it's DYING! Someone has killed him. SHE did. The veiled woman. She killed the dragon. She is now cutting his tongue and eating it. She laughs like a madwoman. God, she gives me the creeps!
    "Who are you? What do you want with me? "My voice trembles, I am so scared I think I will faint. She turns her head toward me, she stares at me and her expression is terrifying. She is about to take off her veil, reveal her identity to me...
    It's at this point that I wake up. I always wake up exactly at this moment: when she is about to unveil herself. I believe that deep inside me I don't want to know. The things she does to me are always horrible, but they are nothing compared to what I will feel if she unveils herself. I prefer to let her keep her secret even at the price to be tormented every night.
