Ever since landlord served her a notice to vacate the house, she was kind of worried. A dream, that she could not recall in the morning, kept appearing at regular interval.
“For the money you want to pay,” her chain of thought was broken by the real estate agent said, “this is the best place I can show you.”
She needed a place badly. She had this feeling of seeing the place before, but she could not place her finger on the time and place. She did not have a good feeling about the agent either. She was certain that she had seen him before.
“But, should I settle for this one?” she looked at the dirty wall, boarded up window, and the fire place heaped with ash, something inside her nagged, “why does this place look so familiar?”
“Don’t worry about the look,” eager to seal the deal, the agent took her silence to be her consent and tried to reassure, “I shall have the place cleaned up and walls painted.”
“I have seen the place in my dream,” after she had sealed the agreement, she recalled, “I have also seen a big fight with the real estate agent”.
Satisfied, she went back to sleep.
