The silence woke her. She sat up in bed and adjusted her eyes to the dark of the room. Right before she woke up, she had been dreaming of strong hands around her neck. She quickly turned on the bedside light to see that she was alone. But the dream seemed so real. She slowly got out of bed to go check the hall and turned on the light. All was clear. She laughed quietly at herself as she crawled back into her bed. After drifting back to sleep, it was the opening of the closet door that woke her.
