Saturday 4th April 2009 my brother said he would be back to watch some films. 12 midnight, I was still waiting for him. Unable to keep my eyes open any longer, I decided to hit the sack. My boyfriend was up anyway, and if I knew my brother he would turn up around 1am, both my boyfriend and my brother would spend the night or what was left of it watching films and whatever else boys do.
I switched everything off, picked up Inki, kissed my boyfriend goodnight and off I went. I put inki in his basket which is next the radiator and I jumped into bed. I must have been exhausted because I literally passed out.
I woke up very abruptly, I was sweating, it was as if the heating was on full blast. I jumped out of bed, walked in to the living room, I could hear my brother and boyfriend talking, I caught a glimpse of my brother but did not acknowledge them. I checked to see if the timer for the heating was on or off. The heating was on. I turned it off and walked straight back into the bedroom and back into bed. I did not even check on Inki. I lay in bed thinking who put the heating on, but to tired to even entertain the thought, I closed my eyes letting sleep once again take over.
I turned on to my side and started to drift off. I am not sure how long I was lying on my side, but I turned around very suddenly, it was really hot, I mean I was sweating, I shouted "turn the heating off" "it is not on babe". I flung the quilt off, and within seconds I was freezing. I quickly covered myself. It was as if the cold was penetrating my whole body, each thrust was colder. I remember looking out of the window and then at the computer screen, it was at this point I felt a warm gust of air sweep across my face, then into my body and then I felt a tug on my left foot. I moved my foot, passed it of as being overly exhausted, but again the warm gust of air swept across my face, filling my body with warmth and again I felt someone tug at my foot at which point I turned to face the wardrobes in the bedroom grabbed the blanket, pulled it up to my face, curled up and closed my eyes. I can't tell you what was going through my mind only that I was filled with fear, but I did fall asleep.
