It has been an hour since I booked my cab, but it has not arrived yet. I called the driver. A strong yet mesmerizing voice spoke on the other end. He said your cab will be there in another ten minutes. As soon as those ten minutes got over, I got a call from the driver, ‘Ma’am, your cab is here’. I packed my purse and went downstairs.
As I sat in the back seat of the cab, there was another lady sitting with her fluffy dog at the back seat. She was beautiful. She had a flawless skin and her hair was white. It looked like she got them colored white. Her left arm had tattoos engraved on it and she was wearing a white tank top. Her eyes had a star gloss. she was a beautiful stranger.
We started talking and she told me that it was her cab. So, I asked her, who is driving the car then? It was her giant Labrador who was driving the cab. I was amazed to know that! I panicked to get out of the car, but somehow the lady convinced me to not to. I stayed and we talked.
We picked up another passenger and everything seemed normal to him. As the conversation went on, the distance passed by, we talked and talked. I asked her, ‘what is your age ma’am, if you don’t mind me telling?’ She gave me an angelic smile and said, ‘I am about to turn 100 this year.’
Suddenly, I woke up with a heavy head. It was 10 in the morning and a few minutes later I realized… it was just a dream!
