    Re: A weird night- Short story

    So, what you do think now? Was it real or a nightmare? After all, you say that you wondered whether it was a nightmare as it was happening. People don't often question whether they are dreaming something at the same moment that they are dreaming, do they? (Perhaps they do; I can't really say.)

    Then again, by labeling this thread "Short Story" you seem to be implying it is fiction.

    Perhaps you should clarify this for your readers!

    Question Please check it again ...

    A weird night which I will never forget as long as I'm alive.

    We had had an exhausting day working in our field, so I laid on my bed, as soon as I got home. Shortly after midnight I heard some whispering in my bedroom. With difficulty, I tried to open my drowsy eyes, and when I did; I found out that two people had clutched my shoulders. First I thought it was a nightmare. When I realized it wasn't, I desperately started finding a way to escape, but how could I while two people were standing next to my bed, the room was totally scary since it was dark, that's why I couldn't see them clearly. They were talking in an unintelligible language, which made me more anxious and frightened. Afterwards, their bodies lightened up green light, and I recognized that they weren't as humanlike as I had thought before; they had three eyes in a random spots of their faces, long ears and Hairy faces. They look like monkeys but they weren't. At that moment, my body was trembling in fear.

    The one on my left covered my head with a transparent silk black bag, then the other alien circled his hands around my neck strangling me, and he started to tighten the circle more and more. After that the other alien sprayed a strange spray on my nose. The smell of the spray was close to the smell of the garlic. At that moment, the one who had strangled me started to widen the circle slowly; I began to loss consciousness.

    Later, I found myself between the conscious and unconscious in a field tied to a palm tree and six aliens were circling me. They were physically similar, but their outfits were different from each other.

    "Welcome back" those were the first words I could understand from them, and they were blurted out in unfamiliar way by their leader. "I don't expect an answer from you now because you are anesthetized" He continued his speech confidently without any attempt from my side to interrupt him. "But don't worry, almost after three minutes you'll be able to. And I think thosethree minutes are plenty of time to tell you about our offer to you".

    After that he asked me if I would help them by answering some questions about the nature of life on earth, and by allowing them to make some safe -as they said- procedures on my body. In return, they will make me a talented person, and in the end, they asked me not to tell anybody about our secret deal. Until, he finished talking about his offer, I wasn't able to talk. As soon as he finished, I was shocked and amazed at the same time. 'Talented', 'safe', 'procedures', and many things were running through my head. "What if I answered him YES" and "What if I answered him NO?"
    "What do you mean by a talented person?" I asked.
    He took a deep breath and delight was showing in both his face and voice when he answered "I meant to install whatever you want to be a talented-in your life to your mind with a technology that nobody on earth knows about it until now", then he asked "What do you think?" I was deeply thinking, whether I had the choice or not. And I thought that I don't have it. That's why I accepted his offer in a hesitation.
    While others were bringing their machines out of their spacecraft, two of them started to paintmy head and neck with a green gel. As soon as they hadfinished painting me, they started to put me into their machine.

    Afterwards, their leader came closer and started questioning me. Almost before he finished his questions, they had informed him that; the appropriate major for me is the art. I was totally amazed how they had known my beloved major without asking me, the leader asked me whether I want to develop and enhance my skills in this major, or I want to change it?. My answer came "NO, I don't want to change it. I like arts".
    "Install the algorithms of arts into his mind "the leader ordered them. Immediately, one of them started to press machine buttons fast and carefully, and then I lost consciousness again.

    Next morning I had a terrible headache and my head was heavier than it had ever been before. My eyes started to see colors with more contrast and brightness, which made me very confused. As soon as I felt ok, I went to the field near the palm tree to search for any answers about the previous night. Unfortunately, I couldn't. Butafter that night I became a fan of arts more than I had been, then I majored in it in the faculty, after thatI became a talented person in the arts,and I won a lot of prizes.

    Until now, I don't know whether it was real or just a nightmare.
