Dejected!, Part Four and The Final Installation
Oftentimes Darkest Moments Come Before The Dawn
The woman further told me that my future was full of promise. However, I did not believe her but she reassured me. She named three people who would be very crucial in my life for the next year-Aunt Amelia, my cousin Xandra, and an unknown man. When I asked who the man was, the woman just stated that the man WILL be EXTREMELY INFLUENTIAL in my life in more ways than one...........
Then I was transported back to my apartment. I did not have the aftereffects of my suicide attempt. I remembered what I considered my dreams. I was left with an important lesson- I indeed was valuable. Of course, there will be obstacles but they will make me stronger. It was morning; however, I was little tired and decided to rest awhile.
I fell into a peaceful sleep. I was dreaming. In my dreams, the woman appeared, stating that she and God loved me and that everything would be well! I continued to sleep and dream quite heavenly I might add. I awoke and all my previous negative thoughts just faded away. I light some white candles and meditated.
Aunt Amelia visited me and we talked for quite a while. She informed me that my termination occurred for a reason. She maintained that nothing happens by chance. She repeatedly assured that I will even be more successful as a horror novelist because this was something I was BORN to do.
Xandra called me, asking if I was fine. I answered yes. She stated that I should see a psychologist to discuss my problems. I told her that everything was fine. I told her of my dream and moment of epiphany. She explained that what I had was definitely NOT a dream but an omen and a forewarning. She stated that I had a paranormal experience and asked me if I learned something from it! I told her that the experience was life-changing and life-altering in more ways than one!
As a result of this experience, I enrolled in graduate classes in English Literature at Fordham University. Eventually, I will earn a Ph.D. in English Literature. While attendng school, I am writing but it is full-time now. As I was walking in Washington Square Park one Saturday, I bumped into a stranger. When I looked at him, he seemed not to be a stranger. He invited me to lunch at a nearby Japanese restaurant. We talked and discovered that we had mutual interests- we both are creative and love English Literature. He gave me his telephone number and I reciprocated.
The next week subsequent to our meeting, we met again at the Japanese restaurant. He introduced himself as a publisher and I stated what a small world. I submitted my work to him. He read it and stated that this novel had the potential to be a BEST-SELLER..............It is now November 13th, 2011 and my horror novel is on THE NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLERS' LIST. The publisher now is my husband! Well, the woman was right- my life is now a BLAST! As the saying goes,"Oftentimes darkest moments do come before the dawn!"
