This dream took place in the past in an older time period in Europe it seemed back when feudalism was the norm.
The dream took place in a kingdom where a king from another kingdom was coming to visit the king of this kingdom, and two women with light-color skin who lived in this kingdom came up with a plan.
The two women had a fake it until you make it idea / plan where they possibly borrowed some money, and they started buying a fancy carriage and various other supplies to go with it.
They were going to bring their carriage et cetera along the other kings route, and they were going to pretend to be the carriage that he would expect to be waiting on him.
They bought fancy clothes et cetera to go along with the fancy carriage and other supplies, they planned on pretending to be wealthy et cetera, and I guess they hoped that if this worked that they would be rewarded in ways that would allow them to pay off all that they bought while gaining some new social connections / status and other rewards.
But that is all that I can remember of this dream.
This dream is unclear but it seemed to take place during the day on a ship that was possibly docked at a dock, but I am not sure.
I remember working on my professional development trying to decide which things that I had done already this week that would work before doing more, some confusing stuff happened during this that I can not remember, but I do remember that several of the things did not make much sense as professional development; but for some unknown reason I was still considering them.
One of these things was some kind of object, maybe football or ball shaped with a N95 mask on it with some writing and some other stuff that I had possibly put on it, and this was in a storage room with some other stuff like: maybe some other personal protective equipment (PPE), a helicopter, some kind of other vehicle, and more.
I spent some time in this room comparing at least three things to use toward my professional development, but at some point I left the room to do something else.
This is where things get so confusing that I am not sure if I was in the dream or not or if I was partly someone else, I am not sure which, either way I remember a Major Motoko Kusanagi-like woman with light-color skin who was either an android or cyborg who was a security guard on the ship during a security patrol.
I possibly was her now or partly her, or I was just seeing things almost from her point-of-view or the dream was following her as the main character now, but I am not sure which.
At some point she noticed another woman with light-color skin sneaking around, the other woman was a mercenary with military-like clothing and weapons and equipment who was stealing things, and so she arrested her; but I can not remember if there was a shootout or not before that.
She then started communicating with an artificial intelligence (AI) security system with a male voice who was also helping to handle security on the ship, she learned that he or some other security guards had taken down or arrested several other mercenaries, and she told the AI to search the ship for unknown heat signatures.
After the AI searched for unknown heat signatures across the ship, he found them all in one area, and that area was the lower storage room that I had been in earlier; and so she took the female mercenary there as her hostage to hopefully avoid violence with the rest of the mercenaries.
The cargo bay to the storage room was open, the mercenaries had their own helicopter, and they were trying to steal the other helicopter on the ship and the other vehicle and various other things; and they were all armed and geared up with military style gear, but she used the female mercenary as a hostage to get them to stand down without violence.
She made a deal with the mercenaries, drop everything that they were trying to steal and leave now, and she would let the female mercenary go; and they agreed surprisingly.
The mercenaries dropped everything, and they started to leave in their helicopter; and she released the female mercenary to them, and they started to fly away.
But I woke up.
