Jothan, bed, travel

The Brass Bed is a story about an ancient bed that transports sleepers to the reality of their dreams. No nightmares, although dreams can become nightmares.

The first twelve episodes appeared on

No. 13 – Awake

Jothan heard a srange noise. Somebody was scratching on the door and trying to get in or get out. The scratching continued. Jothan wanted to open his eyes but his fear kept them shut.

The noise grew louder. Then Jothan heard a joyful bark. “Jupiter”, he thought. What is he doing in Gaul?

Jothan slowly opened his eyes. The ceiling stared back at him. Where I am? Jothan turned in his bed. Why, I’m in my own bed.

His turning caused a painful reminder of his cut arm and the knock on his head. His entire body cried out in pain.

Carefully and slowly, Jothan sat up in bed. How did I get back here? What day is it? What time is it?

Jupiter gave a demanding bark and again scratched persistently.

“Okay Jupiter, I’m coming, boy!”

Jothan crawled out of bed, his body yelling out to stop. Jothan noticed he was wearing pajamas. How did I get these on?

He opened the door and Jupiter bounded in joyfully into the apartment. Mrs. Schmidt called down the hall.

“You’d better hurry up or you’ll be late for work.”

“Thanks, Mrs. Schmidt.”

Jupiter stood on his hind legs, his front paws on Jothan’s chest. He gave Jothan a friendly lick.

Jupiter then ran wildly around the living room barking and yelping.

Jothan walked slowly, painfully to the bathroom. The mirror reflected a bruised, cut face with a large, bluish bump on the side of his head.

What a nightmare! He thought. No. It couldn’t have been a nightmare. Nightmares don’t cut, or bump, or scratch a person’s fce and body.

After a quick hurtful shower, Jothan dressed, ate a light breakfast, and started for work.

Mrs. Schmidt saw him on the stairs.

“What happened to you? You look like you have been in a battle.”
