Selina walked the halls of the hotel. The conference room beckoned, its table laden with food. Be calm … focus. Carefully, she approached and grabbed a roasted chicken. Pressing it close, the scene blurred and disappeared. She woke with a start. When her parents left them, she and her brother ate through the food in the cupboards. As fear of starving set in, the lines had begun to blur between Selena’s dreams and the waking world.
Selina shook her little brother awake. “Georgio, it happened again!” Looking down at the stain on her shirt, she split the chicken between them.
