I had several dreams last night but I forgot most of them after waking up a few times and going back to sleep a few times because I did not feel like getting out of bed/had no reason(s) to get out of bed, but I do barely remember part of two dreams.
The first dream took place during the day and I drove & parked my automobile in a parking lot of a shopping center/mall that is sometimes in my dreams, and I started walking toward the shopping center/mall; but I saw my former classmate DH park his automobile in the parking lot, and so I went to greet him.
DH did not seem to be in a good mood & it seemed that he did not want to be bothered but he walked & somewhat talked with me even though it was clear that he did not want to, and we both went inside the shopping center/mall; but I am not sure what we talked about, how long we talked, or how far did we walk around/in the shopping center/mall.
We probably went separate ways eventually, but that is all that I can remember.
The next dream took place during the day in a slightly fictional version of D, but I only remember part of the end of the dream; and I remember being around a group of people, and they got approached by a man who had bodyguards.
The man was thin & he wore maybe a white colored suit & he had whitish/light brownish/yellowish colored skin with black colored hair, and he seemed like a leader of a cartel; and I think that the man was the leader of several gangs.
The group of people were either already members of one of his gangs or he recruited them into a gang in front of me or he intimidated them into a gang in front of me, either way the group of people were people who lived in the neighborhood who had kids/did not seem to usually commit crimes/et cetera, but somehow this gang leader got them to form a gang under his control.
I think that this gang leader was good at manipulating people like he had studied/trained to do this because I remember him using fear (that other gangs were a threat to them & their kids), threats (that their kids would suffer if they did not join), rewards, his charisma, his speaking skills, and various other manipulation techniques like he was well-trained to manipulate people; but this did not work on me, I did not join the gang, and I silently blended in with the other people to avoid him noticing that I did not join the gang because I was afraid that I would be killed or something like that.
Something happened in the dream that I can not remember, his new gang failed to do something that he commanded, and so the gang leader ordered his bodyguards to punish them after giving them an angry speech & using several techniques to manipulate their emotions/minds; and I remember watching the gang leader use several manipulation techniques that I recognized & predicted, it was sad watching him manipulate these people & I wanted to say something but I felt that I would be killed & that the people would probably not listen since he was controlling their minds/emotions so well, and he broke them down with fear/control at this part but I knew that the next part would be to bring them back up with something positive to bring up their moral & to make them feel more connected to him & each other so that he could better control them.
The gang leader walked into another room during the punishment part, I knew that he was preparing himself for the positive part & so I knew that he would change his appearance & tone for this part, and after the punishment part he came back looking like a snowman oddly (which was symbolic & I understood it in the dream); and he gave a positive speech as expected about them being a family/gang, that he did not like punishing them, that he wants them to follow orders & be happy, and he used several other techniques that caused them to become happy/loyal & they started acting like he was a god or demi-god or something like that ready to follow every command that he gave.
It was sad/bad/scary watching this gang leader manipulate people, and watching him controlling their minds/emotions so easily; it was like watching a combination of a preacher/politician/mental health counselor/criminal/military drill instructor/et cetera or techniques commonly used by people in those jobs to manipulate people.
The gang leader then told the new gang that he wanted them to go destroy another gang who were using an old abandoned concrete property that belonged to the city & that he wanted them to take/take back that property for him, he said that this gang had stolen something from him/one of his gangs and/or did something that I can not remember, and so the new gang left to follow his command & I went with them to avoid suspicion & to watch.
The concrete property was near the project-like housing near N street near the multi-story apartment building where an old gas station/store used to be, the concrete property was a mostly destroyed building not fit to live in but it could be used to hang out in, and so the new gang attacked the gang inside of it by surprise; and the new gang easily killed them all, and this is where things get a bit weird/symbolic in the dream again.
The other gang had red colored stuff on a few of the walls & on the second floor they had some graffiti/symbols on parts of the ceiling, and the red stuff & the graffiti/symbols was/were put there by a red colored being or Human who blew smoke-like stuff from his mouth to put the red stuff & the graffiti there; and the red stuff & the graffiti were symbolic & they also had a certain magical-like purpose that I can not remember.
The new gang had to use their own being or Human who was a blue color to remove the red stuff & the graffiti/symbols of the other gang, this blue being or Human also blew smoke-like stuff but instead of red stuff it was blue stuff & the graffiti/symbols were different; and so the new gang waited on the blue being or Human to finish, and then they called their gang leader.
The gang leader and his bodyguards came, the gang leader was happy & congratulated the new gang, but then he went to the second floor where he noticed some damages to the property that would be noticed the next time that the city would inspect the property; and he expected the city to inspect the building very soon, maybe in an hour or a few hours.
The gang leader got very angry at the new gang, even though they did nothing wrong & followed all of his commands and those damages were already there before they even arrived since the building was an old mostly destroyed building, and then I realized that the gang leader already knew about the damages to the building; and so he had used the new gang to destroy the other gang, and now I sensed that he was going to have his bodyguards kill this new gang & so I sneaked out of a second floor window.
As I was doing this I heard the gang leader give the order to kill the new gang, and I heard people being killed as I ran across the street to escape through the woods; but a few of his bodyguards chased after me in golf-cart-like vehicles, and so I ran in zigzag patterns/odd patterns to avoid getting shot because there was mostly open space instead of a lot of tree oddly so I did not have many things to hide behind.
The golf-cart-like vehicles were pretty fast, and so I tried my best to find an area where they could not drive in but that was not easy since there were so many open areas; and so the situation seemed bad, and a few bodyguards were also chasing me on foot but I woke up.
