Jaxon awoke in a cold sweat, screaming Jacob’s name. She tried to get her bearings as she reached for the gun she kept close to her bed. As she looked around her bedroom, she took a deep breath, and tried to slow her heart beat.
Sarah came rushing in her room. “Jax, are you okay?” Sarah got onto her bed and wrapped Jaxon in her arms as the tears started to roll down Jaxon’s cheeks.
After a few moments, Jax regained her composure and looked at Sarah. “Yeah, I am okay. Just a dream.”
“You were yelling Jake’s name, and then you screamed. Must have been some dream.” Sarah looked in to Jax’s eyes and smiled. “Want to talk about it?”
Jaxon smiled back and placed her hand on Sarah’s cheek. She told her about the vivid dream she had. In the dream, Jacob and his family were murdered and the person who killed them forced her to watch it happen, but couldn’t do anything about it.”
“It was just a dream. It's not real. Remember what you always tell me when I have nightmares? You tell me that I am safe and that you won’t let anything happen to me. Well, the same goes for you.”
“I need to call Jake and make sure he’s okay.” She grabbed the phone, dialed the number, and prayed he answered the phone.
