This dream took place during the day and I went to a fictional small maybe Chinese-style buffet restaurant, there was maybe one female customer there, and there was one female employee with light-color skin with long yellow hair there as well.
The bar barely had any food because they had not replaced the food trays yet, and so I got a bit of what they had and I started eating that while waiting for more food to finally be brought out.
At some point the female employee left and never returned, no food was brought out as we waited, and at some point the owner who was a short old woman with light-color skin with gray / white hair who was possibly from China (Chinese) entered the restaurant asking where the female employee was.
I told her that she left and never came back and that we had been waiting for more food to be brought out, and so the owner probably went in the back and brought out a bit of food but not enough because I assume that she had to make more.
I went to see the new food and one of the items was some very watery stuff that looked like it had uncooked grits floating in it with butter added, it did not look good, but I tried it anyway.
To my surprise it tasted sweet and buttery with a dash of salt (which is how I like my grits), and the grits tasted cooked even though they did not look cooked.
I ate this while I waited for more food to be brought out, but that is all that I can remember of this part of the dream.
I am not sure if this is part of the same dream or not, but I will type it as part of this dream.
This part of the dream took place inside maybe my parent’s house, and a younger child version of my brother CC and I were having a grappling match for fun.
During the match I put him in maybe a weak partial sharpshooter-like (scorpion deathlock-like) submission hold, I did not want to hurt him, and he tapped out so I won.
I remember him complaining about getting hurt a bit, he possibly had tried to get out of the move and slightly hurt himself while doing so, and he was blaming me.
But that is all that I can remember of this dream.
This dream seemed to start during the night inside my parent’s house, and I was in the kitchen when I noticed someone on the front porch outside the partly open curtain.
I could not see that well through the thin curtain and darkness but it seemed to be my male cousin DE wearing a gray knit hat and a black long sleeve shirt or hoodie with gray sweat pants, I wondered what he was doing here at this time and whether he saw me or not, and I saw him drinking something (probably an alcoholic drink) from a hip flask so I wondered if he was drunk and unstable.
I sneaked out of the kitchen hoping that he had not seen me, and I went to tell my parents but then I saw my mom walk on the porch to talk to him so I stopped.
Then my dad joined them, they talked briefly, and then one or more of them walked my cousin DE to The G House it seemed.
My parents entered the house and they told me that someone was going to arrive soon, and at some point after this I remember a younger child version of maybe my brother TDC being there.
I went to maybe a fictional version of my parent’s room and my brother TDC was there trying to get in bed, there were two fictional twin-sized beds in the room also, and he was trying to use them together so I helped him push them together or something like that.
Then I started talking to my parents, and they told me that my cousin DE was going to spend the night at The E House but they did not say if he would be staying there longer than that or not.
The next thing that I remember happened during maybe early morning when it was still dark, there was some noise outside, and my brother GC and our dad were up.
I think that they said that some cats were fighting outside or something, and so that was the noise that we heard.
But I woke up.
