I can only remember part of this dream from last night which I will separate into three parts, and once again the dream was partly inspired by the book American Gods and the television series American Gods.
All that I can remember of this part of the dream is that a forgotten part of it involved something related to American Gods and the remembered part of it took place inside a dimly lit slightly fictional version of The E House, and some of my family and family members and fictional family members from my mom’s side of the family and maybe some other people and I were there.
At some point in the dream maybe one or more older fictional family members decided to share a family secret to me, the main older fictional family member was an old woman with dark-color skin, and they would only let a limited amount of family members know this secret so only a few family members knew about this secret.
They told me that only adult family members who have proven themselves to be trustworthy, among other things, were among the few they would occasionally share this secret to.
I can not remember if there was more to this secret or not, probably, I just remember being shown a secret room which was a small storage closet that was hidden in the middle room behind the wall of the closet.
In this hidden secret room / storage closet were various old objects that belonged to members of the family over various generations, and some of these items included: books, photographs, letters, documents, heirlooms, records, and various other things that were deemed important enough for the family to store in this secret room to be saved and passed on through generations.
Unfortunately I can remember the details of what I was shown and what was said to me other than I saw some very old objects in this secret room that belonged to some of our ancestors from various cultures, but I do know that I was not allowed to tell anyone about this because only a small group of family members could decide who was told about and shown this secret.
The next thing that I remember, after the old woman and maybe the group of family members who seemed to be the small council over this family secret left, is some maybe real and fictional family members and maybe unknown people who were kids being in the house playing.
One of the fictional kids was a boy who somewhat reminded me of my former male classmate AK, this boy was smart just like my former classmate AK was, and when they were playing in the middle room he accidentally found the secret room somehow.
The boy told me that he found a secret room and he took me to it, it was the secret room that I had been shown, and so I had to tell him to not go inside of it because he was not allowed to.
The boy wanted to know why but I did not have permission to answer this, and so I had to walk into another room to try to call the family council to report this so that they could deal with it.
I was immediately blamed, they assumed that I had told the boy, but I explained the situation to them denying this.
I was told that the older woman would not be happy and that I should type a report of the situation and maybe email it to her, and then she would decide what to do next because it seemed that she was over the family council or whatever.
But that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.
All that I can remember of this part of the dream is that I was either myself and / or maybe the character Shadow Moon from American Gods or a man like him or I was myself and Shadow Moon or someone like him was in the dream as well.
We were in a dimly lit house or building or room, possibly The E House and maybe in the middle room but I can not remember, and we were at a meeting of The Old Gods (Deities) so various old gods and goddesses and other types of deities were there.
At some point I and / or Shadow was challenged to or somehow ended up in a match in a certain sport that I can not remember against an old god, maybe Mr. Nancy (Anansi) but I can not remember, and during our sports match I remember this Old God having something to do with blood like maybe he used blood to his advantage against me during the match so maybe he covered part of himself and / or something and / or me with blood as maybe a dirty tactic to win.
The Old God won our sports match, I remember him being happy about his victory, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.
All that I can remember of this part of the dream is that somehow I ended up meeting some of my former classmates like my former male classmates JC, DH, MT, maybe JB, maybe SS, and maybe a few others.
Somehow I or we had permission to be able to go to a high school gym to play sports for fun if we wanted to, maybe one of us worked there, and I assume that this high school was a fictional larger version of the D High School.
Some of us had not seen each other in years and we had not played certain sports in years, and so I challenged them to play some sports (including whatever sport I had played against that Old God from earlier in the dream) at the high school with and against me.
Some of them were not sure about this, but I convinced them to go.
There were some high school students at the gym because school and / or practice for various sports were going on, and I remember my former classmates and I playing some sports and maybe some of the high school students joined in but I can not remember.
It was fun getting to spend some time with my former classmates again and play sports with them again after all of these years, we felt so old, but we still had it when it came to sports (at least for people our age who have not played some sports in years).
But that is all that I can remember of this dream.
