The Scary Old Woman Attacks

Last night the only dream that I can somewhat remember is my last one and it is very unclear at the beginning, but I will try to guess what happened.

It took place in D where the School Board shop should be but there was a house there instead and the field was bigger, and the end of the field looked like the fence at my parent’s house except there was an opening that had to be covered by wire & a wooden board; behind it was the field and neighborhood next to my parent’s house.

Anyway, I am not sure how or why I went to this house but I think there was a woman there with a bodyguard, I think she had either just became the new owner of the house or she was just looking at it, and some men came into the house and attacked them; I think they looked like members of a biker gang or something.

The bodyguard had a gun but I think one of the biker gang members knocked it out of his hands and they were fighting, at some point I came in to help and I got the gun, and had to shoot one or more of the biker gang members to stop them from killing either the bodyguard and/or woman and/or me; then the other biker gang members either ran or were also dead, I think they just ran.

After that I think the bodyguard may have also been dead but I can not remember, I think that the house had been abandoned for years and so the woman gave me the house if I wanted it, and she left; or something like that.

I remember groups of people coming to the house, some may have been police officers and some were family members of the bodyguard and the dead biker gang member(s), and some may have been people who had come to see the abandoned house, I am not sure; but I do remember seeing some of the biker gang members and they looked at me like they wanted to kill or attack me later when everyone else was gone.

I decided to spend the night at the house to see what it was like staying there, and after everyone left I started to make sure the windows and doors were locked; especially since I was afraid that the biker gang would come to attack me during the night.

I also looked for weapons and I found some baseball bats and maybe two guns in the house, probably guns from the fight in/at the beginning of the dream.

The house was not very big but it was nice, it just needed a bit of cleaning and some stronger doors, and after locking up most of the house I went outside to block the big hole in the fence.

It was somewhat dark outside at this point and I was very cautious, but I did not bring a weapon with me outside, probably because I did not want anyone to think that I was a robber or something.

The walk to the fence was somewhat long and I had to take a large wire frame and wooden board to block up the hole, and I used some bricks to help stop the wind from blowing it down.

As I was doing this I noticed an old woman walking across the field from the neighborhood toward me, she looked just like the old woman (Gladys Foster) in the film Legion, I thought it was odd that she was outside at night alone; but I just thought that she was a neighbor that had come to see what I was doing or something.

She was normal at first and started to say something to me and I started to tell her what I was doing & stuff like that, but then my brother GC came walking up from behind me; he said that he had decided to come spend the night at the house with me if the biker gang tried to come attack me.

I was glad that he had come to help me and I told him so, but then the old woman started to talk and her voice changed to a scary voice, and her eyes and teeth changed (she looked like the old woman who changed in the film Legion); my brother GC and I were shocked and started to back away from the fence, at this point the dream felt real and I felt pretty weak, and was scared.

The old woman then said something very peculiar/strange to me, that actually went with something I had read in real life before going to sleep and probably something that crossed my mind while I was afraid in the dream; before I went to bed I had glanced at some religious text in reference to a goddess and I glanced at a small prayer that the author had written, I had glanced around at The Internet Sacred Text Archive website out of curiosity.

I am not sure if in that moment of fear in the dream if I either remembered part of the prayer or tried to pray or just thought about something to do with a goddess, but anyway the old woman told me something like: “Go ahead and pray to the goddess, there is nothing that she can do for you (or for you now) or she can’t save you now or something like that.”.

I was even more shocked and I wondered how she knew about that & I wondered if she could read my mind or something, and if the old woman actually was implying that a goddess really did in fact exist, but I told my brother GC to run to the house so that we can get some weapons to fight the old woman and/or hide; and so we ran to the house.

The old woman jumped over the 6 foot fence like a Hunter from Left 4 Dead 2 and she could run faster than a normal human, but we had a head start & so we made it to the house and locked the door; she then jumped on top of the house.

I told GC to grab 2 baseball bats and a gun and I did the same thing, we were both very scared, we kept looking out of the windows and listening to see where the old woman was; we knew she was on the roof, but did not know where exactly.

I decided that we should run out of the house, locking it of course, and run to my parent’s house while fighting the old woman if she chased us; so I told my brother to run out the door on the count of three and I would run out covering him while locking the door, but I woke up.

Eating At The Arcade

The night before last I had this dream which took place in D as well at where the old Walmart use to be, but there was some arcade/diner there along with some other store or stores.

I was there sitting down eating with some of my old friends/classmates such as DH, SS, and even JC came along with his girlfriend; it was our first time seeing JC in a long time and our first time meeting his girlfriend.

We greeted them and we all started to talk about old memories, many of which were actually dream memories from dreams that I had forgotten about, several of which were about our times spent at the arcade; things were going well and after eating, I had to use the bathroom, and then some of us said our goodbyes & some of use got on a bus to go on a trip.

On the bus were other people who were already there, I did not know any of them, but two of the people were having a debate; one of them was a man who was talking about things like my dream the night before that involving race based themes mixed with a Black Panther-like group, African religions & Christianity, philosophy, and other deep and interesting things.

The man felt strongly about his beliefs and was explaining these deep and complex ideas about reality and dreaming, which really caught my attention but he was using the word dreaming to mean something differently than the common use; he also used strange proper nouns sometimes that sounded like something from language in Africa.

I wish I could remember what he was saying but I know parts of it were confusing, some parts I did not feel that I agreed with, but some parts made sense; it was quite complex and deep, and I was surprise that a male dream character was revealing this since usually female characters share hidden/secret/strange information like this but I woke up before I could ask questions.

The end,
