Escape ~ A Short Story.

Something a Little Different for some Light reading.

Cosmic Waves

Escape

She ran bare foot in the darkness digging her soles into the soft grainy sand.

It was pitch black, not even the Moon lit her pathway. Her breath came in short sharp bursts matching her steps. The path she knew by memory got steeper, as deeper her feet dug into the shifting sands.

Pebbles now dug into her feet, she altered her position getting her bearings until the softness of sand was under foot again as she felt the small clumps of grass brush her legs, she knew now she was on the right track.

She needed to run faster for they were behind her, She knew she hadn’t long as she heard the noise of the engines behind her as around 50 yards to her right through the trees was the old road. The convoy was behind her gaining speed..

Her feet now were covering the hardened earth as higher and higher she climbed, half running, scrambling over unseen obstacles.

She saw the outline of trees to her left and dived amongst them as the beam of light shone in front of her. The motorcycle with the uniformed rider drove past her hiding place at speed, kicking up the sand and dust in his wake.

She counted to Ten, took another deep breath and set of running again higher and steeper, every step taking the breath from her lungs

But she knew she couldn’t stop, for the Wagons were coming.

She was alert with all her senses coming into play, as she ran through the darkness, relying on her awareness of memory of the trail and her sense of touch as well as her sixth sense that instinctively kicked in.

Her heart beat loudly in her ears as the sweat oozed from every pore. The noise from the wagons now droned behind her, she had to get to the top, and then she knew she would be safe. But as hard as she ran the steeper and harder it became and it slowed her progress.

The searchlight from the lead wagon was switched on, its beam shot a line through the trees behind her. She had to stick to the path for a while longer yet, to detour now into the unknown forest would be fatal

Her limbs ached as her lungs wanted to explode as the pain of running so fast and hard overwhelmed her.

She gritted her teeth in her determination as she dug her feet deeper into the moving slope, knowing her feet were bleeding, she focused on her climb as the sand bank slipped beneath her steps. Her instincts told her she hadn’t much further to go and she would be safe..

“ Keep going, keep going” she told herself, until she felt the blast of the ocean breeze hit her face. The wind hit her, blowing her hair back from where it has stuck upon her sweat laden brow, waking her senses. She breathed in deep gulping at the cold sea air as she heard the crashing waves below.

The wagons of war roared louder behind her and she knew it was now or never to put her faith to the test.

The Moon surfaced from behind the clouds casting some light upon her path. She was there, right on the edge.. She stopped. Knowing there was no way back.

She looked behind to see the head lights had stopped where the road had ran out. Torch light now was seen blinking up and down the track she’d just climbed as the soldiers followed her path.

She knew she could do it.. She just needed faith.

She smiled as the Moon sprinkled her light upon the scene. Showing her standing on the edge of the cliff, with the ocean waves crashing beneath her.

She took a deep breath as she raised her arms skyward as in some ritual.

She gave herself the command..

“Fly”…..

as she launched herself off the cliff face. Falling down and down, and then… she flew, up and up, feeling the wind beneath her, she was free, and she was flying home..

She had always known she could fly in the face of danger, she soared through the dark sky, leaving everything behind her. Her gaze was now on the Horizon, she saw the Light in the distance as she headed for it..

“ I am coming Home”

were her last thoughts ..

      🙂 Thank you David, I’m always just lifting off in Dreams David, I’m almost certain We could Fly in a previous existence.. And have brought its essence here.. Its our Soul Consciousness that is flying back and forth.. But its amazing how we can create many a dream and we can lift off out of Danger.. 🙂

    My flying dreams started years ago. I would be sitting in a chair flying almost out of control through city streets with lots of electric wires to dodge and buildings to avoid. They would end with me still in a chair getting on a 4 lane highway at very high speed and leaning into the curve. Now I’m always in a big crowd of people and I just will myself to rise above them and fly around them trying to impress them but they just look up and watch me as if it’s a normal thing to do. I always enjoy the flights. I just wish I could control my them.

    Sue, as a child I often dreamed of flying, slowly and unsure of myself, four or five feet off of the ground, very much like swimming along underwater with my eyes wide open. In fact, I first learned to swim when I was 5 years old by swimming underwater IN that exact fashion —by remembering how to do it.
    I think we ARE capable of flying, but have merely forgotten how -dumbed down by the ‘manufactured’ reality which is a bad illusion.
    Interestingly, now I dream of traveling by flying–at incredible speed–and that, in fact, is more likely the reality of the spiritual beings we ARE. All I have to do is remember how to do THAT now. I am convinced we can fly at the speed of light or faster–in a different frequency. By the way, you CAN fly straight up and down. Just do it. Have a wonderful day! “:)

      Raymond, thank you,.. Yes Ive always had flying dreams and as a child could only bend my knees and tuck them up as I flew a foot above the ground.. Now I take up as I command myself to fly..
      Interesting though I have flown across the universe as I saw the planets wizz past me at speed,, as I looked at earth from outer-space.. That was the time I had a vision of the future……
      Keep flying also my friend.. 🙂

    Great building of suspense in this story. A reader can feel the desperation and determination of the runner. Interesting, the story leaves unstated who or what is pursuing the runner.

    In the Bible, don’t many of the most important messages come in dreams?

      I have to admit, I have had one or two revealing Visions in Dreams John, I think it can be interpreted on a personal level and a global level.. We each of us are running away from those Negative Vibrations Seeking our Freedom..

      Those Wagons were never seen by me, I just knew they were there, Large and Menacing and I would be doomed had I been caught..

      Many places around the world are caught in their own search for freedoms as they face daily those war wagons.. I only hope many can seek their freedom by trusting in themselves to reach out to use their own energies as they reach out with their minds embracing the Light.. In my case I could fly… I only hope one day Mankind can fly in the face of War to embrace Peace..

    Loved the story, intense then majestic tale… I ly in my reams, and just last night… since I got out of the hospital last weekend I suppose is why this is weird but when I walked I started floating but as I started floating I would then turn upside down. I did this several times. The bad thing was I woke up abour 2 am and couldn’t breath. It was like being under water, after about 15-20 seconds I realized this was serious and got out of bed and walked down the hall with my arms over my head till I got a breath, then another. It scared me, this pneumonia has really kicked my butt. The medicine is intense and today I am trying to sit up more. Always love reading you.

    Sue, it is such an intriguing dream and the way you have weaved the thoughts. Indeed we all dream things we cannot do in real life, aspiration and feelings have no limits, we all love to see the world from the top and we want the control of flying in our hands…dream and flying are such a wonderful combination to make the imagination fly high and wide.
    We all want in life the freedom to fly and velocity to escape the ground reality and engage with the beautiful dreams of life. I keep dreaming such flying ideas and this story is a reflection of the power to dream and the power to push us to make our dream a reality…
    This story of yours has instantly left an indelible mark in my mind. I will remember for long and keep relating every time I reflect on mu dreams.
    Thanks so much Sue for sharing with me and what a lovely thought I take back from this story…

    Beautiful! Dreaming about the machine of war, eh? – Funny read one of the ‘recommended posts’ from the email notification of your like, re: Albert Einstein..and wanted to comment – “Just Add “Attributed to” OR ‘ In the Spirit of…” – and tell those looking for a fight (of which, I confess to being one, but hope I’m not that bad in my ramblings – LOL – If I am, feel free to say so – Learning Moment! LOL –

    But – Machines of War? Funny how war seems to show up on our doorstep – from a myriad of perspectives – work, family, friends, community, government, nation – – but…bottom line? Life is Hard – says I – and hope here soon you are flying in Dreams just cuz you can and not to escape War – 🙂

    (Yes – I trained my brain some time ago to sprout wings in my dreams so I no longer had to wake up with the shell-shock of falling like a stone into the canyon floor – cuz I thought the rules of physics applied to my Dreamlife – Still haven’t succeeded in avoiding when I’m running a fever or the room temp is too hot – or I’m worried about something…. 🙂

      Yes War is ingrained within us all I think, through the generations of history and I am sure over many en-carnations we have lived through. War has been a part of Man.. He seems inherit on destruction be it via war or pollution..

    Your story got my heart racing with her. Most of my “flying” dreams have been in places with very low gravity so I could bounce high. But many years ago, I had a dream I will never forget. In this dream I flew low and fast over the intracoastal waterway near my home on the Carolina Coast. I flew over tiny islands that I hope to kayak around some day. At one point, I was skimming the surface of the water, flying very fast. It was late afternoon and the water sparkled. I imagine doing that for real after I take my last breath. Thanks for asking!

      What a wonderful dream experience.. I often think some of those lucid flying dreams are perhaps our spirit taking flight.. Or a remembered existence when we could travel by the mere thought of our destination.. Mankind has always wanted to fly, We can accomplish many things if we set out minds to it can we not.. And our physical bodies may not be able to resist the pull of our Earth’s dense gravity.. But our minds can certainly fly where ever we want them to..

      Thank you JoAnna for reading this short story and for sharing your own flying experiences.. 🙂 In love and Gratitude ❤ xx

    Dreams are a favorite subject of mine, but I don’t recall ever having one where I flew. In fact, I’m rarely in my own dreams at all. Rather I’m a bystander, or sort of watching, as if a movie. Lovely story. Mega hugs.
