I was flying over Century City swimming in the sky as I thought about the previous day. I looked to my right and Bill was straightened out in the air smiling at me.
“Look like you found somebody you like?”
I frowned at him. “How are you doing this? Invading my sleeping mind? Are you mind walker?”
Bill shook his head. “Nope. I ain’t all that Bro. I’m just a Airhead. Your the one that thinks your dreaming. So you seemed determined to leave this planet behind for the ride. That’s good.”
“Why do you keep calling me Bro? Whay the hell does that mean?”
Bill laughed. “Sorry about that. It’s a slang term from where I came. It means family or sibling. That’s how I see you. Like family.”
I shook my head. “Family is blood contracts for food and provisions. Nothing more. What you gaining in this exchange between us?”
Bill shook his head. “I wasn’t born on your planet. Family means something different to my mind. It’s the connections you make with others and a link in a chain that won’t ever be broken.”
I frowned at him. “You wish to link your chain with me, why? What do you gain?”
Bill laughed. “Calm down bro. Your going to deep. Focus on saving yourself first. When you get off world I’ll tell you the rest.”
“I want to know your gain in this exchange. I will not be a tool for your provisions.”
Bill just smiled. “I’m Airhead. I’m not bound by holds others down. I’m free. I choose my own family. I provide for my own self. You can be free too.”
“Is that what your offering me? So I can be your lover or baby provider?”
Bill snorted and shook a finger at me. “That’s not even close. Nice try. Complete the list and I’ll see you in the air.” He said before disappearing in smoke.
I felt myself awaking as I felt my bed under my body. I wondered. What Bill was after with me. I wondered why he had such an interest in trying to save me.
