The moon started shaking then everything stopped, and a terrible screeching filled my ears.

What was going on?  The moon was moving at a speed beyond words, away from the earth. It was like somebody had tied a rope around the moon, and was dragging it off into space.

Suddenly  the water was rising, the moon was out of sight now. Was it the apocalypse? Was it a dream?

I wake and look outside, there was no moon, this wasn’t a dream.

I sprinted down to the beach, I saw that the water was dead still, no movement  at all.
