Close Your Eyes
Jolene takes refuge in a shaded spot under the huge weeping willow by the dance hall. She lies back against the trunk and closes her eyes, willing the oppressive heat away.
As she drifts off to sleep, she pictures a partially cloudy day with a cooling breeze caressing her skin. The breeze picks up and has now been joined by the lightest, fluffiest of snowflakes. Soon, a light blanket of snow covers the ground all around her.
