I have a weird imagination...

It was a surreal moment. I was about to fall asleep, when I heard absolute silence, and everything went blank. It was dark, but suddenly it became darker. I usually open the curtains and windows when I sleep, as to let in a little breeze, and some light coming from the streetlights. I got out of bed, it was quite chilly as I looked out of the window, and all I could see was blue darkness, and not a single sound! It seemed that the electricity blacked out. It felt so strange, standing there before the window, the white sheer curtain swaying in the darkness, like the ghost of a jellyfish, swimming in a black sea. And me.. cold and small, standing there in my fragile little nightgown, so alone. I felt like I was the only person in this universe, the only survivor of a deadly epidemic. I heard distant howling, probably just a few stray dogs fighting, but at that moment it sounded like the cry of an enormous carnivore, a hideous beast. My mind strayed, horrifying thoughts streamed into my head. I shook them them all out, climbed back into bed, snuggled beneath the covers and fell asleep.
