I thought I was awake, and lying in bed. I wondered why the bed was so sticky. I found out when I turned on the light: the scar, from the open gall bladder surgery I'd had in November 2013, had been leaking all night. There was a triangle of sticky red blood in the centre of my chest, the size of a grapefruit. And there were smears and streaks of drying blood everywhere.

It's fortunate that this was such a short dream.
