I had a number of interesting dreams recently about which I thought I’d write. They’re probably not very interesting to anyone else, but they’re interesting to me.
This dream came to me the night after I was playing Assassin’s Creed before bed. I was in a new city in what appeared to be a classroom. They were giving me a sort of orientation, explaining that the norm in this city was to travel by jumping from building to building and jumping into windows. For those that don’t know, Assassin’s Creed features that exact kind of moment, so it’s no surprise that I was dreaming about it.
However, there was a reason for this type of moment in the dream. The city was home not only to humans but also to zombies. The zombies weren’t very agile, so survivors simply moved higher. The first few floors of buildings were barricaded, and people lived above them. I do remember vividly that a zombie was hanging from a rail above a bed, swinging back and forth, which seems to contradict the idea that they weren’t agile. What do I know? It was a dream.
Later in the dream, moving on the ground became more normal. The zombies were slow, and one bite wasn’t enough to transmit the zombie virus (or whatever it was). You had to be critically wounded and usually killed by a zombie to turn into one, so they weren’t as big of a threat. People still resided higher in the buildings, but many would still walk between buildings.
At one point, I was at some sort of street fair getting food from a cart or stand. Someone yelled that zombies were coming, and gates were simply shut to keep them out of the area until they wandered off. One managed to graze me with his teeth, but it wasn’t a big deal.
Here’s a different dream! I was on my way to a theater with gem and Anela to watch a play but needed to stop by my place first. It was a small apartment, and I seemed to be really happy with it. It might have been new, but it was definitely cozy. Unfortunately, someone had broken into it. I don’t think they took a lot, but I was definitely robbed.
Above and behind my couch, there was a panel in the wall that could be opened leading to a secret room. I seemed to have been using it for storage, and I was very relieved that the burglars hadn’t found it. I have no idea what was in it.
The closet and theme park
I forgot about this one until I started writing the last one, but thinking about gem and Anela reminded me! In this dream, I was in a large, walk-in closet that was too cluttered. It was of vital importance that it become more organized for some reason. You could hang clothes on four sides, and in the center was a large table. I found that I could clean off the table, freeing up a lot of space. I guess?
Anyways, then gem urgently needed Anela and sent me to get her. She was at the theme park, which might have been a cross between Disneyland and a waterpark (get on that, Disney). I rushed over and told her to come back with me.
This dream makes less sense than the last two.
Here’s my last interesting dream. I was swimming in a huge swimming pool that was on the beach in some third-world, Middle Eastern country. The pool was built right in the sand of the beach, and the beach was absolutely huge. While I was enjoying the water with gem and Antonio, helicopters flew by and were followed with planes that began dropping bombs. We realized that the US was bombing the country, and we scrambled to get out of the water and run inland.
As we were running up the street, I realized I left my phone and wallet back on the beach. Despite gem and Antonio thinking it was a bad idea, I went back. I saw what looked like huge computer cases with the doors missing sitting on the beach. Large aircraft were dropping them onto the beach, and the sides were missing because they opened, allowing troops to emerge. These belonged to the side that was opposing the US. I was scared they were going to turn on me, but despite all the shooting, they seemed to accept me and not see me as an enemy.
I don’t remember if I found my belongings or not, but I left the beach and tried to find gem and Antonio again. After locating them, we ran down some alleys when a door in front of us suddenly opened and Alex Hurst popped out, telling us to get inside quickly.
Thanks for saving us, Alex!
