Story Notes: I've had this idea percolating for a while. I love drabbles and something I'm excited to explore with these ones is writing in present tense. Present tense just has a dreamy quality to me, and I've always been oddly daunted by changing my writing style to the present tense for something longer. So I'm going to explore that in little bite-sized pieces. This will ultimately be a real story, not random things collected beneath one drabble umbrella. I am excited to see how it goes!

I do not always plan to rhyme or be poetic for this story, but if I start accidentally rhyming I am just going to roll with it. Drabbles bring out the poetry in me sometimes.

Prompt: Dream
