I awake to find the room positively freezing. I pull the covers closer to me, wrapping them around my bare shoulders. I roll over and look up at my window; something isn't right. I reach up and touch the frosted glass. It's cold to touch. I lift myself up and wipe away some of the fog covering the pane. Outside, white flecks slowly fall to the ground, covering it in a blanket of white.
I hear a door slam down the hall and the rushed sound of running footsteps. "Ven," a voice says, accompanied with a rapid knock, "did you see it?"

to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
