Since I was eight years old I often dream I come to school feeling myself very scared and anxious. At the begining I think it's because I haven’t done my homework and I fear that the teacher tests me on something I haven’t studied. Suddenly, the teacher orders me to come in front of the class but I always freeze in my tracks and my mates begin to laugh at me and I ‘m not able to understand why, then when I want to stand up I immediately realize I don’t have any shoes on and my confusion is complete: I see myself and confirm that I’m wearing pants, shirt, tie and the jacket of my uniform, but only gray socks on my feet. Then the other pupils try to step on my feet making fun of me and making the rest of the school notice me in socks. However I feel kind of safe at my desk trying to hide my feet under the chair. As I remain seated, lesson hours always seem to last forever because I wish I could run away quickly but as the time of returning home nears, my suffering increases by not knowing what to do since I begin to face the mortification of going home in my socks. At the end the bell rings and I get out of classroom walking as fast as I can go through the crowd in the yard where all students are making fool of me. Suddenly, I see the class bully carrying my shoes and I am afraid he wants to get rid them so I run after him but as I am just wearing socks my feet hurt , then my socks get torn and dirty and I feel more miserable. Finally when I’m just about to catch him crossing a wide street, a car sounds the horn and when I’m just to be hit I wake up sweating with a start followed by a great relief when I realized it was a nightmare !
