Well Said: Sand in her toes?


"At the mention of the local surfing spot, an image of moonlight on water floated into Lena's mind. Her eyes snapped open. She sat up, looking around her room. Her hoodie hung in the closet, and her sandals sat in the shoe rack, same as always. Was it all a dream? She slid her feet out from under the covers and examined them. There were grains of sand between her toes...Lena lay back down slowly. She didn't remember getting out of bed, or going downstairs, or unlocking the back door. All she remembered was the shock of finding herself on the beach."
Oh no! The poor dear is sleep walking!

  27. This reminds me so much of my younger sister who used to sleep walk all of the time and once ended up in a snow bank outside our home. Needless to say, she was a little surprised when she woke up freezing with my mother throwing blankets on her! :o)
