Horror Dream

Last night I dreamed that Fred's eyes sealed shut while she was dreaming, no lashes or lumps, no trace of them, just tightly stretched skin. I had to take a scalpel and cut two slits in her face for her to see. And I did it, deftly, with little emotion, but I did it wrong, one, the left eye, was small and neat and well positioned but the other cut was too centered, and too long. Later I saw her and her eyes were back and shining and blue as ever, but she had a long bloody scar across the bridge of her nose where I had misjudged the cut...
