hey there, it's Whiskey from Holiday Review Swap!

This is an interesting start! I wonder if the woman in her nightmares is the mother? I like to speculate :P I also suspect she will run into this one-night stand again? That might end up being awkward...

I do have some suggestions for improvement, if you don't mind:

First of all, recalling all of these things as she walks home is, on the one hand, an unusual strategy, on the other hand it's alot like "telling" instead of "showing". I could imagine that starting off with the dream, then her waking up and wondering where she is, then the walk home with some reflection would have been more gripping. But less sad, I suppose, so it's a question of taste in the end.

This sentence here struck me as odd: "By simply bottling up her feelings and her thoughts, it was so much easier to ignore things." It's a very general statement and it doesn't really correspond to what's happening, since she was actually in the process of thinking about her issues as she walks home...And again, it's just telling the reader a fact and assuming they will believe you instead of *showing* them how she bottles things up...

Apart from that, quite an exciting story, good luck!
