Mowgli dream

DRUMS IN THE WOODS WERE IN THE AIR.
I was 100% sure that I was dreaming.
They called me Mowgli, as in the movie “the jungle book”. I was a wild child and my family was a group of wolves.
In that instant, I launched a panicked look in the direction of the wolves, but their eyes were just as scared as mine.


I made an effort to control me and as I approached them …
– Hey Mowgli, welcome home, – said the biggest of wolves. – My name is Raksha, and you don’t have to be afraid of us, we are your family. When you were the kid you visited us during the night, but then disappeared at sunrise. You didn’t show up in the jungle a few years, baby Mowgli. We had missed you.
The image of the wolf, there, talking to me, creeped me out. But, at that very moment, I smiled and felt that I really belonged in that place.
– I remember Raksha. – said Mowgli.
The clock rang and the Sun came out.
“It was just a dream,” I reminded myself again. “It was just a dream”.

OUVEM-SE TAMBORES NA FLORESTA.
Eu sentia-me 100 % certo de que estava a sonhar.
Chamavam-me Mowgli, como no filme “O livro da Selva”. Eu era uma criança selvagem e a minha familía era uma alcateia de lobos.
Naquele instante, lancei um olhar de pânico na direcção dos lobos, mas estavam com os olhos tão assustados quanto os meus.
Fiz um esforço para me controlar e enquanto me aproximava da alcateia…
– Olá Mowgli, bem-vindo a casa – disse o lobo mais alto da alcateia. – O meu nome é Raksha, e, não precisas de ter medo de nós, somos a tua família. Quando eras crianças visitavas-nos durante a noite, mas, então, desaparecias ao nascer do sol. Não apareces na selva a alguns anos, querido Mowgli. Tínhamos saudades tuas.
A imagem do Lobo, ali, a falar comigo, arrepiou-me. Mas, naquele preciso momento, sorri e senti realmente que pertencia a aquele lugar.
– Eu lembro-me Raksha – disse Mowgli.
O relógio tocou e o sol apareceu.
“Foi apenas um sonho”, lembrei a mim mesmo mais uma vez. “ Foi só um sonho”.
