Reality Shift

There are two conservatories, two apartments, two Arnhems and two protagonists. I go to sleep in one, I wake up in the other. They both have continuation, but only one obeys the laws of physics. Last night I've been trying to win over a girl in my sleep. Successfully to my surprise. Now that should have been a clue for me to finally realize: "Hey, this can't be real", and it wasn't. However the longer I sleep the more real it all appears.

The second conservatory is a little bit like my old high-school: The walls are white, windowed walls everywhere I go, hundreds of hallways, thousands of doors... but this place is even bigger. There are elevators that can carry up to 13 students up to the 5th and 6th floor. It took me some time to realize that I actually follow a daily routine in the other reality as soon as I fall asleep. I have a schedule, I have friends, and I have a very weird, yet strong work ethic.

Nonetheless it is unstable. Hallways collapse, people disappear, the time of day changes randomly. I may enter a room at lunch and leave it at midnight. But when I miss a class, I'm terrified. I still keep writing exams that have nothing to do with music in the first place. Math exams still scare the crap out of me. Teachers give me assignments and homework.... when I forget to write it down I panic: "Damn! How will I pass the exam if I can't do the homework!"

I think I've been more scared of dream exams than of any real ones in my entire life. When you think about it, this is incredibly funny. Because ultimately both are completely unimportant.
