The snow was coming down hard. Fat flakes of white turned the midnight sky into a false shade of midday. They kissed her cheeks as they continued their free fall to the ground below. She was jealous of them. The icy flakes fell freely, twisting and turning in flight, seemingly unconcerned with their undetermined path. Happily free falling at will. She silently envied them as she adjusted her toboggan, pulling it tighter over her ears.

“C’mon guys.....wrap it up.....it’s cold as hell...” Joscelyn muttered to her two dogs that were caked in snow and totally distracted from their late night potty break.

She shivered in her pajamas as she climbed back up the wooden steps to her patio door. The dogs begrudgingly following suit realizing their exploration of this wondrous cold powder was coming to an end. They slowly stumbled up the steps and into the house, Joscelyn closing and locking the door behind them.

“Ok, you two....get back up on the couch and lay down...I’ve got a long day tomorrow and I desperately need sleep....” she ordered the two dogs like unruly children, giving them both a biscuit as she sleepily shuffled across the kitchen and back into the dark living room impatient for the warm comfort of her bed that awaited at the end of hall.

Joscelyn crawled into bed and pulled the covers over her. Another long day indeed, she thought. Eight hours of a tedious desk job, cowering to the whims of an ungrateful boss followed by a two hour drive to Atlanta to attend another acting audition which would most likely result in only rejection. She sighed in anticipated disappointment at the prospect. She just wanted one shot to live this dream. Just a chance at the one thing that truly brought her happiness and then she could leave. Break away from this life that she had regretfully made for herself and start living the one she had secretly desired to live for years.

“Did you remember to turn off the patio light..?” a voice asked from beneath the other side of the covers, jarring her out of her thoughts.

“No.......damn it...” sighed Joscelyn to her husband, Cameron, as he rolled over and went back to sleep. She groaned as she got back out of bed and stumbled to the kitchen. She regretted that she had forgotten to turn off the patio light resulting in this very irritating detour from sleep, however that mistake could be easily fixed, Joscelyn confided to herself as she flipped off the patio light. But returning to bed with a man she no longer loved was a mistake that couldn’t be fixed. Feeling defeated, Joscelyn walked back down the hall and climbed into bed; hoping the covers would provide a refuge from the bad choices she had made. Thankfully, sleep soon overcame her and she was released from her reality. All the while, a dark shadow watched from the doorway.
