Protecting The Masquerade | Getting Shot In The Stomach

Both of the dreams that I somewhat remember from last night were probably partly inspired by ChristopherOdd’s Let’s Play of the video game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, which I watched a few of his YouTube videos of from his playlist last night before going to sleep:

Dream 1

All that I can remember of the first dream is that it was obviously inspired by the video game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, and it involved something about trying to protect The Masquerade; and I remember a male vampire with whitish colored skin talking about having to stay hidden or something like that, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it was also inspired by the video game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines, I was inside a fictional one-story house/building that was possibly supposed to be where some of my family (my parents and maybe some of my brothers) and some other unknown people and I lived, and maybe I was a vampire but I am not sure.

Two royal (possibly a king and queen) and/or high-level and/or old and/or well-connected and/or powerful vampires who were a married couple (a man and a woman with whitish colored skin who seemed like a calm/relaxed and confident married couple who were used to getting their way) who were the leaders of their own vampire group / vampire sect (possibly an Independent Clan) came to the house/building, they probably had some members of their group with them as bodyguards, and I think that they wanted me to join or help them.

Something happened that I can not remember, maybe I did not want to join them so maybe they tried to kill me and/or force me to join them, and I probably got shot in the stomach and had a bad gunshot wound to the stomach or I got a serious stomach injury some other way; but somehow I managed to escape trying to lead them away from my family and the others, and trying to get help/medical attention/care.

I had to stop the bleeding from my stomach wound by having to constantly hold my stomach with one of my hands, I could not even stand up straight so I had to slouch, I could not move fast so I had to walk slowly with almost a limp, and so it was a struggle trying to escape and avoid drawing too much attention to myself and to try to stop myself from bleeding to death; and I was not sure if my body would be able to heal itself or not, I was possibly a vampire, and so I tried to find a telephone to call emergency services or for help from someone else or to call my family to let them know that I was still alive.

I walked down a sidewalk to an area that seemed to possibly be near a beach or something, there were sidewalks with many open buildings and booths along the sidewalks with people moving around and selling stuff, and so I tried to hide among the crowd as I struggled to move and find a telephone; and I hid in in one of the open areas that had walls that I could hide behind, and there was an old blackish colored corded telephone in there.

The leaders of the vampire group/sect/clan and their group were still after me, they either wanted to kill me and/or force me to join them, and I knew that the two leaders had disciplines/superpowers/special abilities that they could use to help them track me; and so I was going to have to be careful, be smart, and maybe use my own disciplines/superpowers/special abilities (if I had any) to help me avoid them.

I picked up the telephone and I was going to call emergency services but I stopped for some reason, I possibly realized that the leaders of the vampire group were close and/or that getting medical attention would possibly break The Masquerade if I was a vampire and the humans realized that I was not human when they try to repair my stomach wound, and so I decided to not call emergency services; but maybe I called my family, but I am not sure because it is possible that I was not able to do that because I saw the leaders of the vampire group scanning the area with their disciplines.

As I was hiding and holding my stomach wound hoping that I would heal eventually and not die, I noticed the leaders of the vampire group standing on top of a building in the distance, and they were using their disciplines to scan the crowds of people looking for me; but maybe the wall and/or my own disciplines allowed me to stay hidden from them, but I was not sure how long I could hide without them finding me.

I was going to probably have to move to a new location, the leaders of the vampire group looked confident and they were smiling, and they were talking about how they would find me eventually and that they were in no rush so they were going to keep looking for me as long as it took.

I was not sure if I was healing or if I could even heal from such a serious injury, I started to worry that I was going to die if I did not at least have someone patch the wound, and so I probably started preparing to move among the crowds of people to hopefully find a vampire or someone who could help patch my stomach wound without risking violating The Masquerade; but I probably woke up as I was preparing to escape.

The end,
