									The Recurring Dream
                                                      A story from England
             The story starts with a description of Kimberly Clark, the
protagonist of the story, who is twenty five yeas old with all qualities of a
normal young woman. She is pretty, she loves to dance, and she has many
friends and a good position in the office of a large company. Despite
these all, she has a problem. She has been troubled by a strange and
mysterious dream that haunts her every night.
           The strange dream always begins on a country road. Kim stands
on this road and sees a lane with a white fence and a hedge on each side.
At the end of the lane, on the top of a little hill, she sees a small white
cottage with green shutters. Then she walks up the lane to the house,
goes in and looks around. In one of the rooms, she finds a man asleep in
bed. He is a little old man with white hair and a white heard. When she
comes near his bed, the man wakes up. Then he sits up and looks at her.
When she tries to speak to him, she wakes up. She is very surprised
troubled by the dream because she has never known any little old man
like that and neither the place.
            Kim’s roommate knows everything. So, one day she proposes
Kim to visit her (Janet’s) parents’ farm house to feel peace in mind. As
they pass through a country road, Kim sees the similar scene which she
sees in her dream. They stop there. Janet does not want Kim to go and
see the small cottage but Kim goes.
            The house was exactly the same, except for a sign in front of
the house which said ‘FOR SALE’. Unlike her dream, Kim goes to the door
of the house and knocks and to her surprise the same old man answers
the door who immediately closes the door. After Kim’s request, he opens
the door. Kim again asks why the house is for sale. The old man reveals
that the house is haunted by a ghost. Kim tries hard to think to say
something instead asks who the ghost is. The old man gets surprised and
shocks her by replying that she herself is the ghost.
