"Mother! Mother! It is really you isn't it?" To her suprise Jennifer's mum didn't answer. She just stared straight ahead. Frantically Jennifer waved her hand in front of her eyes. "Mum, it's me can't you see?" Then on looking up she saw what had entranced her stoney faced mother. She screamed, blocking the way ahead she saw a

part of her bedroom from the real world. Looking around, the parade and her mother had become a blur. A breeze began to pick up, blowing her hair and sending a shiver down her spine. "What's going on?" Jenifer mumbled.The wind had stopped and everingthing was still. She oped her eyes, yawned and exclaimed,"What an exciting dream!" THE END.
