The parent promised that Auntie Mary was going to be okay and bid his son goodnight after tucking him in. The following day, the family heard that the aunt had, indeed, passed on.

About two weeks later, the father, once again, goes to his son’s bedroom to wish him goodnight. He finds the boy in a state while having another terrible nightmare.

The parent gently wakes him up and calms him down. The emotional and frightened boy explains to his father that he just had another dream, and this time his grandpapa was the one who died.

Not taking the nightmares seriously, the father reassures the little boy and tells him grandpapa will be fine, and no harm will befall him. He tucks the boy back into bed and bids him goodnight.

The man goes to his own room but can’t sleep as he mulls over his son’s dream. The next day, the man wakes up feeling groggy from not sleeping enough and spends the day terrified for his life.

The parent believes that he’s the next person to die, and after getting dressed, he drives very slowly to work, scared he might get into a crash. At work, he doesn’t eat because he’s scared of getting food poisoning.

“You think your day was a mess, our milkman dropped dead on the doorstep this morning!”
