I only got about 3 hours of sleep last night after getting in bed too late, and so I can only remember part of the end of my last dream.
The dream took place during the day in the city of D at a fictional house that was where The Military Surplus Store should be, and I was in a bedroom standing up like I had just entered the room.
My former male classmate DS was in the bedroom sitting on a bed on the left side of the room, his fictional brother was sitting on a bed on the right side of the room, and DS was possibly playing a video game and / or had some video game equipment.
His brother made a joke about DS not needing all of that fiber (internet lines / cables) and maybe some other joke about gaming and online gaming, video games, video game equipment, et cetera.
DS told his brother to not joke about that, he explained how important gaming and video games and the equipment and fiber was and how he had enough fiber lines set up that they could wrap around the house or something like that, and he told him that if our former male classmate DG heard him joking like this that he would possibly send a hitman (assassin) to murder / kill him.
DS explained that DG was seriously into gaming and online gaming, video games, video game equipment, et cetera and took any jokes / insults to it seriously; and that he had money and connections, and that he had really had people murdered before so this was not a joke.
His brother thought that DS was joking, but I could see that he was serious.
His brother left outside, then DS and I found out that somehow DG had heard what his brother had said, and so DG sent a hitman (assassin) to murder / kill the brother so DS sent me outside to warn his brother.
Several people ended up going with me, I can not remember if DS went with us or not, but we had guns.
His brother had left the yard so we ran to find him, we ran along the street past the RV park, and eventually we found an area with a sunken area on the right side of the road near a forest where his brother was.
A group of mercenaries were coming up the street with military gear and clothing and even at least one military vehicle, they had heard about a hitman being sent by DG to kill the brother, and maybe they were going to try to kill the brother first so that they could collect the bounty but I am not sure.
Unfortunately the hitman got to the brother first,the mercenaries got there second, and we got there third.
The mercenaries apologized to the hitman and they backed off, since the hitman got there first they showed respect for him and / or DG, and me and the others with me rushed in to save the brother.
We had a brief standoff with the hitman, and eventually we / I shot and killed the hitman to the surprise of the mercenaries.
But then the mercenaries decided to ambush us now that the hitman was dead and they did not have to worry about competing with the hitman now that he was dead, the mercenaries had us outnumbered, outgunned, out trained, out equipped, they had the high ground, and they got closer to the brother so the situation was very bad for us.
We tried to talk them down but that did not work, and so we had a shootout.
Unfortunately they got to the brother first during the shootout and their leader shot and killed the brother, it was almost like having my own brother killed, and I felt bad for DS and for having failed to save his brother.
I shot and killed the leader myself, and then amazingly we went on to defeat the mercenaries until only one was left alive who maybe I went to interrogate.
The last mercenary did not cooperate and he tried to kill me, and I ended bashing him in the head several times with a grenade that his side had and maybe it was going to detonate and he ended up getting killed in the explosion in or by a small shack by the forest.
We won the battle but we failed to save the brother, and so I was going to restart time (somehow I felt that I had the power to do this even though I do not think that I realized that I was dreaming); but I woke up before I could try to restart time.
