She heard all manner of sounds coming from the rooms behind the doors as she passed them, but one sound made her stop in her tracks. It was a song, a familiar song from her childhood, and as she focused to remember the song she had an epiphany, that this was just a dream. She awoke sideways in her bed, tangled in a burrito of bedsheets, relieved… until she realized she was late for work.
