The dream left her memory the moment she noticed the light. She thought it was the noise machine blinking. Funny how they used a noise machine to sleep better. Soothing sounds of nothing but hummmmmmmm. She broke her rule and looked at the alarm clock 4:37 a.m. Crap!
The light was still strobing in the bedroom but the noise machine had a green steady signal. She did not want to leave the warmth of their bed but she had to check out what was happening. She thought the light outside the barn was flickering, a new bulb would surely fix that right up but when she looked out the window her heart stopped. Two vehicles with red and blue flashing lights were parked on the road connecting the two properties.
“Wake up! she called. EMS are at your parents!”
