*tring* *tring* *trinnnnngggg*
I could hear the distant ring in my sleep. Who’s calling me right now? I check the phone puzzled. It’s 4.11 AM. Goddamnit! I get up and go towards the phone to pick it up.
“Hey! Who’s this? Can’t you see the time?”
‘I can. I could never have had found a more perfect time.’
“Huh?! Who are you? What do you want?”
‘I am you. I need to tell you something.’
“What is this some kind of joke? It’s not funny, you see.”
‘It’s not meant to be hon. Just hear me out.’
“Fine! Go on. Hurry up, will you?”
‘Do it. You’re making the correct decision. Don’t back out now.’
“Do what? What do you know? Why do I trust you?”
‘Simply because I’m you. Who else would you trust more than yourself?’
“But..I don’t know”
I wake up panting! It’s 6.31 AM. I check my call logs, there isn’t any call at 4.11 AM. I remember speaking on a vintage phone, I don’t own a phone like that. I remember it so vividly that it doesn’t feel like a dream.
I go outside and there’s that same phone on the table. I ask mom, where did it come from? “Oh your dad got it last night from that exhibition. You had gone to bed already.” -she replied. “Does it work?” – I ask bewildered. My mom looks at me as if I woke up drunk. “Huh?! Of course not! It doesn’t even have a wire, how is that supposed to work?” -she shrugs. “Oh yeah, sorry my bad.” -I smile.
Whatever that call was dream or reality. It hepled me decide, what I needed to do.
Don’t you wish you could so easily get a call which could help you make the right decision?
I wish it happened everytime I needed to make a decision.
