Gabriel jolts awake. "That dream again..."
He's been having these strange nightmares.
In his dreams, Gabriel often finds himself in surreal and unsettling situations. He would be going about his daily life when suddenly abnormal happenings would occur.
Once it was the beginning of World War 3. Another time it was a world-ending meteor from space. The strangest had to be the one where aliens attacked.
And every time, without fail, he would die at the end. A painful, horrible death.
He's tired of these nightmares.
Despite his lingering uneasiness, Gabriel decides to put it all past him for the time being.
He gets up from bed and gets ready for school. It's his last year of high school. He's going to graduate in only a few weeks. With that on his mind, he says his goodbyes to his parents and heads out the door.
