I’m on the fire escape. I am carrying the suitcase and an old gray coat. Steps patrol near me, silent, fearsome… but I am not scared, I am just trying to keep the balance, just that. The stairs creak like the old woman’s death rattle while my soul is trying to escape of this dream. Manhattan, XXI century. I fall and I hit my face. It doesn’t hurt. I’m again standing. Run, just run. Why run? I cannot even remember my name, I cannot even remember how I went here, I cannot even remember why I am here. Two floors still left: an eternity.

‘Stop, please!’ they shouted. But I cannot do it. I remember the note: the game is not over. What game? I need to find the answers to continue, and I am sure those men won’t give me any answers.

Finally, I got the floor. It’s a strange and secure feeling to feel the floor under your feet. I take a look above. They are wearing the same black clothes, like detectives or police inspectors. I need to run; I cannot allow they catch me. Have I killed? I look at my hands, they are not the assassins’ hands. Sure of that? I’m not sure of anything. Streets are empty, no sounds, no souls. Am I still dreaming? Maybe, but I need to run, I need to escape.


I take the suitcase and I run. I don’t know where I am. At the end of the street, there’s a yellow car arriving at high speed. I don’t know why but I think I am save now.

‘Stop!’ those men shouted again. The taxi stops near me. No doubt: I have to take it, it will be the only solution.

‘John Mirror?’ a woman voice asked me.

‘John Mirror’ I answered.

I cannot see the complete woman’s face. She has long blonde hair and brown eyes. I can see them in the rear-view mirror. I lie down on the seat and I breathe twice. I feel my heart trembling, knocking at my dreams’ door.

‘You are not dreaming, John’ the woman said. ‘You need to rest now. Later, you will find the answers you are looking for.’

‘Why is nobody in the street?’

‘Don’t you remember?’ she answered me. ‘It’s Christmas Eve but, anyway, the curfew started yesterday.’

I really need the answers and I cannot wait for them.

‘What happened here?’

‘First, dream’

And don’t know how, but at this moment I felt in the deepest dream I’ve ever dreamt. Before, maybe I saw her smile, just maybe.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
