She rolled off the bed, put on a pair of shorts and a tee-shirt, and then grabbed the loaded gun lying on top of the nightstand. She cocked it, and walked with slow caution towards the door that led into her apartment. Her heart was pounding in her chest, as her lungs filled with heavy air.
She reached the door, and slipped her hands into the light. It had texture. It was warm, and soothing, and glowing yellow-gold. She felt love in that light. A hope of a family. A wanting of a child.
The gun fell from her hands, as the door dissolved in front of her. She stepped back, as a strange man suddenly appeared. He was covered in this light from head to toe, glowing because of it. He was handsome with rugged masculine features, and a well-toned body. He stood about six feet tall, and he was dressed in slacks and a collared shirt.
While she stood there with her mouth open, he stepped into the apartment, and walked over to her. The door un-dissolved, and returned back to normal as the glow that once covered his body moved into his eyes, eyes that were now locked onto Sara. She was in a trance, as she stared into those soft butterscotch colored eyes.
