The old man shook the sleeping couple.  “Wake up!”
“Where … who …”  Denis was too groggy to be coherent.

“Quick, what did you dream?” The old man fired the question at him.
“Thundering waterfall … vast caves … blue eyes … a song.”

“And you, Katya?
“Bottomless chasm … silk … shining city … white stallion.”

The old man stared at them both for a minute, then solemnly announced, “Your dreams say we must travel far.”
“But the forest door …”  Katya reminded him.

“At the end of our quest.  It will be many moons before we return to these woods.  Now prepare.  Tomorrow we begin our journey.”

Another interesting instalment. Pity it wasn’t a 350 word competition so you could get them all in one.

Yes, serialised stories seem to be the thing at the moment. I’m sure that I saw that Amazon is starting something new where they are serialising stories, but I can’t find the link now.

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
