    BEYOND THE WOODS
    Chapter 1..


    HEY ROSHAN ,WHAT”S UP? A stocky boy of 18 woke up Roshan in the middle of his usual day dreams.
    I AM OK,,,JUST…HAD A NAP

    A NAP?..HAH.. YOU SURE LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE SOME THING GOING ON YOUR HEAD, MAN

    HEY LISTEN UP SAM,,PLEASE LEAVE ME ALONE

    OK,,OK,,MAN COOL,BE COOL.JUST CURIOUS..
    Roshan was a sri lankan boy who is living in USA, for his higher studies.he got a schorlarship 2 years ago and moved in to USA .he came alone,ofcoure he himself was the only scholarship winner in 2006.his family is living in C olombo, Sri lanka.his father is a lawyer and his mother is a doctor.he applied for the schorlarship,because his marks at the A/LEVELS were just a bit not enouh for entering the faculty he intended.from his childhood he wanted to be a bio enginner or a doctor and work in the NASA.but because he is living in sri  lanka,he did not have the opportunity to it.he love his mother land so much,leaving it, was a bit of a heart breaker,but he knew he was going to USA for a good reason,if he can go to USA  and become a renowned scientist,he can bring glory to motherland.so at the end he decided to apply for the schorlarship.he won it easily.he was overjoyed when he heard that he won the schorlarship.his parents were happy too.so he came to USA in 2006.his university is situated in  New Jersey.he is living with his friend sam,whome he met a year ago.sam is also studying bio engineering .sam is living in a small apartmaent in a remote part of the town,his family is living in New york,so he had to find a place nearer to the campus,so he bought it.

    HEY SAM TODAY IS SATURDAY,,ISNT IT?

    YEP

    OH SHIT!


    WHY?

    I HAVE TO
    GO AND CALL MY FAMILY

    TODAY?OH I FORGOT.OFCOURSE ..MMMM WHY ARENT THEY SATSFIED WITH A E MAIL FULL OF “ HEY MOM I AM FINE,DOING WELL”?

    IT IS JUST THAT THEY WANT TO HEAR MY VOICE

    HAH,,HEAR YOUR SILLY VOICE……
    YEP.Roshan suddenly broke out into a fit of laughter.sam looked at him curiously
    HEY WHATS UP DUDE?





    I HAVE TO SAY YOU SOMETHING IMPORTANT SAM

    WHAT IS DUDE?

    IT IS ABOUT MY DREAMS

    OH..YOUR SILLY DREAMS,,WHY YOU BOTHER ABOUT THAT SORT OF
    CRAP?

    IT IS JUST I KEEP SEING THE SAME DREAM OVER AND OVER AGAIN

    OH,,,SO WHAT?  Sam asked a bit tired by roshan”s dreams

    IT IS NOT NORMAL, IS”NT IT?

    I DON’T KNOW,,,IT SEEMS CRAZY TO ME

    OK,I AM GOING TO CALL MY FAMILY NOW.I WILL BE BACK IN 20 MINUTES
    OK
    Roshan went out of the room and into the sunshine.the street was empty now,other than a couple of school kids who was playing football
    He quickly went into a communication centre near his apartment,it is just few blocks away from his apartment,so he did not have to walk a long distance.life in USA is loads different than Sri lanka,in sri lanka drivers drive from the right,but in USA drivers drive in left,,he knew how to drive in sri lanka,but because he have to drive from the left he forgot about driving in USA.sam has a car,but they rarely use it.

    He went into the communication and came back,while he was going up the steps of his apartment he suddenly felt faint,his head started to swirl round in circles and then he started to fell down the steps,he fell with a thud.he did not feel the impact,because he was dreaming again,a quick flash of pictures flashed in  his mind as  lightning.   An old house which is covered BY ivey,,a childs face,,,,,a women smiling,,,,a  car built in the 50s,,,,,,,,a gun on a chair,lying on it was a news paper,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,2 big buildings,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,a gate ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,a road surrounded with pine trees leading to the house he saw earlier,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,and then he saw nothing or hear nothing
    HEY ROSHAN WAKE UP
    it was sam
    SAM, WHERE  AM I?roshan asked looking around curiously
    YOU ARE IN THE HOSPITAL,,I FOUND YOU LYING ON THE FLOOR,,BLOOD WAS EVERY WHERE,,,,,YOU ARE LUCKY ,YOU HAVE ONLY BRUICED,,,,HEY ROSHAN, YOU HAVE TO TELL ME WHAT HAPPENED,,I WAS SO AFRAID MAN,,I CALLED 911 AND THEY BROUGHT YOU HERE.

    I JUST FAINTED


    YOU JUST FAINTED?WHY?DO YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEM?

    NO,NO.I JUST FAINTED AND THEN I SAW THE DREAM AGAIN.
