Among the Trees, There are Dreams (A Free Short Story) by Patricia Green


Sondja has chosen to live alone in the forest in order to protect herself from the horrors of her ability to hear the villagers' dreams. Nightmares can haunt her eternally. However, one day, a young man comes to her forest home and she feels compelled to listen to his dreams – of her! Have the fates brought them together, weaving their threads silently and inexorably? Is this man her destiny?

This is a free short story, resident on the Patricia Green Books website.


It was unusual for anyone but her to be out in the middle of Briarwood, where few cottage-dwellers came. They thought the forest haunted, which was not true, but it served Sondja's purposes to let them think that. When she went into the village to trade her fruits and vegetables for fish and flour, she allowed them to think her fey and strange. They kept away, and that was her desire. She didn't want the voices to bring her pain, make her too close to anyone. When they had nightmares, the images and their unconscious screams haunted her for a long time.

But this man, this intrepid man, had come into her forest. Why?

For a while, she sat beside him and listed to his dream. It was erotic, primitive, full of lust touched by tenderness. Although she'd experienced the sexual dreams of other people when she lived in the village, they had never been about her.

  1. You don't have to feel bad just because your lover left you, When you have someone like Dr.Ekpen Temple who is capable to bring your lover back to you within 48 hours. At first i was a novice to this kind of thing, But after reading a lot of review online about Dr.Ekpen Temple i felt like giving him an opportunity to prove himself. So i took the contact information of Dr.Ekpen Temple which were +2347050270218 or via email: And my heart was filled with joy because just within 48 hours my lover returned. Thanks you Sir.
