Sleepwalking my way through life: Freud would have a field day...



Freud would have a field day...

The bike was spinning dangerously on one wheel, the occupier teetering in the air in deep concentration. If he twisted an inch in any direction he’d plummet to the earth with a bone shuddering force, and he did not want that at all. The man watched him with a half smile – amazed at the feat being displayed in front of him, but at the same time nursing the uneasy feeling in his stomach. He had seen this biker before.

Another bystander was standing in awe too, and he ran over to the biker as soon as he had finished his trick. The biker laughed behind yellow tinted shades and lifted the rim of his hat – in answer to the bystander’s question – to reveal a healing scab on his forehead above his right eye. The bystander squealed with delight, but the man stood stark still. He recognised the biker, and glanced around nervously, deciding to leave.

He swivelled on his heel, leaving the biker and bystander behind him, and froze in his tracks. She was leaning against a motorbike a few feet away, her arms crossed and her eyes watching him from under the brim of a dark hat. She looked different, but he could tell it was her. The stomach dropped from under him, but he kept composure and watched her too.

A few seconds forced through the tension between them, the wind sifting through their dark hair.

He smiled.

-Don’t I get a hug?



I woke up with a start. Cold sweat clung to my clothes to my skin and I swallowed desperately at a dry throat. After I calmed myself down I sat in silence, wrapped in my bed sheet, before I laid back down and fell asleep.
