When the knocking stopped and the door slowly opened, Ma Cody tried to scream. Her hand shot to her mouth, her body leaned forward in the chair, but the scream stuck in her throat.
Making out whether the bear was aggressive or not was difficult when everything in the room was out of focus and blurred and the light was so poor.
Abruptly, the dream changed.
The bear became Sheriff Cole.
Strange dream.
"How is she, Ma?"
Everything refocused.
She said quietly "So, this aint dreaming no more," then looked across at Anna, "But I sure wish it still was."
