London... The City… 2020

I had a really bad headache, the room was going round and round. I could see cockroaches coming down the walls and rats all over the floor. I looked up and I could see snakes coming out of the ceiling. They all seemed to be coming towards me. I tried to run but my legs felt like jelly. I was on the floor trying to get up but I couldn’t. It felt like everything was happening in slow motion. I felt so heavy, so tired and I had a really bad pain in my head. A great big snake lunged towards my face. I jumped. I fell off the sofa on to the floor. I was having another nightmare. It seemed like I was having these nightmares almost every night.

Bang! Bang! Bang! Was the sound in my head, but it wasn’t in my head it was at the door. I dragged myself up from the floor and went to see who it was. I looked through the spy hole and saw my friend... well, he wasn’t my friend but what he had with him was. I opened the door a little.
“Have you got the money?” Whispered the man at the door with the hood of his coat hiding his face.
“Yes, just a minute.” I reached into my pocket, took out the money and gave it to him. In return he gave me a packet of my little friends. I call them my friends because they make me feel better and at the moment I could do with feeling better.

Before I could close the door the man was gone. I dragged myself back to the sofa where I collapsed. Wasting no time I took out one of my friends and popped it into my mouth. As I sat there I noticed the sound of the television, it had been left on all night.
“There has been another death of a celebrity due to drug overdose. In the last 6 months there has been an increase in people dying from drug overdoses and nobody seems to know why that is.”
