Drabble really. Joe has dream he wishes was his reality.
"it's not real, it's just a dream"
"what do you mean, of course it is. I love you" but he slowly fades. "Steven!"
"Joe wake up!"
an arm shakes me up. I look up into her eyes. the one who can see the lies. I quickly look away, ashamed the one I'd been dreaming of wasn't her. my wife. "what's a matter Joe? you were tossing and turning, you scared me."
still looking away I whisper, "nothing, it was just a dream."
"don't lie, something happened you were mumbling. I could have sworn you said Steven?"
no running now, can't turn away.
"nothing happened! I'm just tired, that's all. we had a rough day at the studio, just go to bed." I growl turning over away from her. pulling the sheets up I smile, for now my secret's safe. while it my dream may never come true, I'll still have my self created memories. the one fantasy i can grant myself.
