I got awakened by someone who started talking to me while I was trying to sleep and so my sleep/dreaming got interrupted from 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM, and so now I can only barely remember part of my last dream from last night.
There are a few jumps/changes of location/et cetera in the dream probably because I briefly woke up a few times because of drooling/maybe snoring as I am still trying to adjust to sleeping without my oldest pillow as I sleep on my other pillows, and the dream probably continued each time that I went back to sleep but with a few changes here-and-there.
I remember the dream starting during maybe late in the afternoon or during the evening in a small school/college-like corner concrete/paved courtyard that seemed a bit familiar like maybe it has been used in one or more of my past dreams before, and I was there along with some students/people.
There were at least three multi-story brick buildings in/around the courtyard and at some point something happened where a group of students/people took over one of the buildings, and they locked the building so that the rest of us could not use the building, and so I joined everyone else in a second group to try to unlock the building so that everyone could use it.
This started as a friendly competition / game / et cetera and the second team and I eventually unlocked the building, and we opened it for everyone, but later the first team took over the building again, and they locked everyone out again; and so the second team and I tried to open the building for everyone again.
Eventually things started to get violent because the first team started to use violence to take over the building and to defend it once they took it over again, but the second team and I tried to avoid violence mostly; but sometimes the second team and I fought back in self-defense, and eventually the situation got more serious as the first team increasingly became more aggressive/dangerous (even their appearance(s) started to change to look more dangerous) as they started using mêlée weapons and toy ranged weapons (toy guns, throwing objects, et cetera).
The second team and I continued trying to avoid using violence but the first team violent tactics was making it very hard for us, so we probably lost a lot of people because of injuries/maybe deaths/maybe kidnappings/out of fear/et cetera, but eventually there was a larger jump/change in the dream where it was earlier in the day now and I was in a new location in a field across the street from where the new version of the multi-story building was.
All that was left of the second team was several action movie stars (Bruce Willis, maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger, maybe Wesley Snipes, Sylvester Stallone, and maybe one or two more people from The Expendables movies) playing the roles of some of their famous action movie characters and I, and the first group was now a violent/dangerous gang of armed men (with real guns) led by one man with whitish colored skin with long hair and a long beard.
The first group was once again in control of the new version of the building, which was a multi-purpose building that also had a small nursing home and a home for the mentally/physically disabled, and so the first group was also holding the old people and the disabled people inside the building hostage.
Now the dream felt like a movie and there was a film crew filming the action movie stars and I who were about to try to free the hostages and open the building for everyone, I remember us walking across the street to the yard where the building was to a box of toy guns/weapons, and we started picking which toy weapons we wanted.
It seemed that the action movie stars were treating this situation like a movie but to me it was real, I was confused by this, and so I assumed that maybe they were trying to avoid hurting anyone or that maybe this was really a movie, and I remember picking up a Luger-like pistol that looked real and I shot it at the ground to see if it was real or not; and it shot the ground, and it was a real gun to our surprise.
I released the magazine and I emptied the bullets from it and I cleared a bullet from the chamber, I noticed that the bullets were clear soft plastic bullets, but we still decided not to use the real pistol; and then we sneaked into the house by somehow unlocking a locked window on the first floor, and I remember us getting attacked by members of the first group who had guns.
Somehow we defeated a few of them, and we saved a few hostages but eventually most of the action movie stars retreated from the house because we were no match against a gang of men using real guns, but I continued sneaking around saving hostages and unlocking windows/doors while trying to avoid using violence but it was not easy.
I think that a few of the movie stars decided to start using some of the real guns and they probably started fighting again to help me free the hostages, and I remember maybe trying to find the leader of the first group to stop him because the others in the first group seemed to be following his orders; and I probably found the leader and I asked him to please stop the violence and to release the hostages and open the building so that everyone could use it, but he refused.
His bodyguards and him started trying to kill me, they chased me, and they shot their guns at me, but I was prepared and I easily escaped them to continue saving hostages; and I was going to fight them once we freed all the hostages, but I woke up.
