Just a dream

She slipped her hand into his. Quietly, no - wordlessly she lead him to the edge of the bush. She beckoned with her other hand, as if to say shhh, come see.
He followed her as she pulled him along.
Into the trees. The trees so high. So filled with green they overtook his world. He closed his bright grey eyes and breathed in deeply. The forest smelled like christmas. Filled with hope, a longing.
Again she tugged on his hand, hurrying him. He opened his eyes, smiling at her. They walked towards a clearing. The trees opening to reveal a bright, tingling sky with an opening in the trees... He saw there was a hammock  hanging between the branches of the largest trees he had ever placed his eyes on.
