about this story

Slipping my boots on, I glanced out the window to the tall big building. The air was cold and the sky was gray. The sunlight was dimmed by the blanket of clouds. Closing my door with a thud, I felt the cold wind kiss my cheeks softly. The blurry distance had some kind of... thing. What was it? I couldn't tell. Not that it was far away, I just... couldn't see? I'm not sure. I walked briskly towards this blurry clump of something. Something moving around. It ran around. What was it? As I got closer, I could finally see what it was: Lucky. My dog. My dead dog. "What?" I whispered below my breath. How was this possible? A million questions flooded my mind, clamouring to be answered. I picked Lucky up, tears rolling down my cheeks in joy. My heart exploded with unadulterated joy. I hugged the dog against my chest. He, Lucky, joyfully swung his paws around. His fur was dirty and had spots of mud. I couldn't care less. My dog. My dog since childhood. He, my sole and only emotional support, had returned. How? I didn't care to ask myself this question, I beyond overjoyed. My mother walked out of the house, pulling her coat over her shirt. "Son, what in the world are you doing?" my mother asked, eyes wide in shock. I exclaimed, "Oh, Mum! Lucky's back! He's really back!" I hugged the dog against my chest. What a loveable dog. "What?" My mother was perplexed. "Lucky, my dog?" "What dog?" I looked at my mother, confused. "Honey, are you hallucinating again? We still have your brain cancer session to go to." my mother asked with a look of concern. "What..?" before I knew it, I realised. I realised that my arms were empty.
