It all started with white clouds. Then, some kind of Angel appeared, her name was Annie. She started to talk to
She handed the piece of paper to Annie. “Very well done
“Great job! Now, here’s the key to the big silver building. Once you get there, there will be a bed there, all you have to do is lay down on the bed and dream that you are getting the sleep that you need every night”.
TO BE CONTINUED!
She woke up and there was this OTHER angel standing there. He didn't talk what so ever in the beginning. He just held up signs with integer equations. Only this time it was subtracting. Crystal knew right away that she had to solve the equation. He gave her a piece of paper. The equation was (+6) - (+8). She started to solve the equation by a method that her junior high math teacher Mr.Harbeck taught her. Crystal came up with:
The angel skimmed through the paper and gave her a thumbs up. She then handed Crystal another sheet of paper of an integer equation. Only this time it was much longer and confusing. Crystal again used a method that Mr. Harbeck taught her. The equation was -7 - (-5) - (5) +8. She saw the zero pair and started to write down her answer. This is what she came up with this time:
The angel was every impressed. She started to talk very fast that Crystal didn't even get to ask what her name was. The angel said " Good job Crystal. Annie just wanted to test you if you really knew your integers because she said that it is going to help you in the long run. Well, once i pinch you, you are going to officially wake up and you will have your normal day and you will get as much sleep as you want. In the count of three. 1, 2, 3" POOF! Crystal had a huge headache and didnt remember ANYTHING that she had dreamed. Her headache was bugging her so much that she couldn't go to work. Everything was JUST a dream that did not come true (sadly). But in the future, she quit her job because she wanted more time with her family and more sleep. She found a new job and is settle in with that one. Crystal still continues to do integer equations in her spare time. Until this day, she hadnt rememberd anything from that dream.
