Dreamland...

This is a story I started a few weeks ago. It's supposed to be someone's dream, although my dreams aren't usually so fast-paced. Hope you enjoy!


I snuggled down into my comforter and tossed and turned. I could not go to sleep. Eighteen minutes passed, and I slowly drifted to sleep…and was awakened on a train with reporters surrounding me, all wearing name tags.

One named “Bill” addressed me. “And what is your final answer, Mr. President?” he asked. “Uhh…No comment,” I replied. “WRITE THAT DOWN!” Bill shouted. Then all the reporters scribbled violently on their notepads. “Banjo Ledge is planning on running for president next year,” one named “Annie” called, “what are you going to do to stop him?” I hesitated. “Okay,” I said, “I don’t think you understand. I’m not…”

The words were just leaving my mouth when suddenly I was at the zoo. I paid for my ticket and went in. They had all kinds of animals. I heard a voice behind me. It said, “How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?” I spun around, and there was the biggest woodchuck I had ever seen. It was at least seven feet tall. “Well,” he demanded arrogantly, “how much?” But I never got to answer, because I was sucked up into a big purple hole...

…And I fell into a dark, deserted wood. I looked around and saw a girl lying on the ground. I poked her with my foot, and she squeaked, “NOOOOOOO!” and ran away. Some big brown pigs flew by, their shiny silver wings sparkling in the cold air. I climbed a tree, to try and find out where I was. As I climbed, the branches broke below me. The branch under me broke. I fell…

…And landed on the beach. It was perfect. A warm breeze was blowing, the sky was blue, and the water was calm. I jumped into the ocean and started to swim. Suddenly waves started coming. They were higher than my head. The sky turned purple with green stripes. The waves turned red. I frantically kicked my legs and tried to paddle back to shore, but the more I kicked, the farther away I got from shore. I rode the waves until I landed on the beach again. Everything became perfect once more. But I knew not to go back in the water.

In a flash, I was on a deserted looking island. I looked around not knowing what to expect. I heard a weird noise coming from one side of the island. I ran to the other side of the island and saw- a procession of ignorant pigosaurs! They were stomping, screaming, and stuffing raw potatoes into their mouths. I sauntered up to one of them and said slowly, “My name is Sherlock Holmes, can you tell me what is going on?” It looked at me with a very bewildered expression on its face and started to speak.

Then, just like that, I was transported to a busy highway. I decided that it would be a good idea to run into the road, full speed ahead! As I ran, all the cars turned into horses. The people on the horses pointed at me and yelled, “There he is! Billy the Kid!” They chased me into a western looking town, and I raced into a building, only to hear, “Cut! That was perfect!” I looked around and saw a man sitting in a director’s chair. “Whatever will we do when you leave, famous movie star?” He sighed with a wistful look. I looked oddly at him, and then I joined a line dance that was going on on the other side of the room. “CHA CHA CHA!” We all shouted. Then I went through a wall…

…to find, on the other side, thousands of pigs searching for food. They all stared at me, and then rushed forward, screaming, “Throw not your pearls before swine!” over and over. Sprouting wings, I jumped into the air, bumping my head on clouds. I landed on a rainbow and looked to my left. A raging battle was going on. I flew above it, grabbed a megaphone that was floating in the air, and bellowed, “STOP!!!!!!!!!!!” Instantly all of the people stopped fighting, turned around, and left. I was so proud of myself, I flew higher and higher, until I smacked into the sun. BOOM! The sun (and me) plummeted to the ground…

And I woke up.

The end
