Playing Spades With My Cousin ME

I had more dreams that I woke up remembering but I went back to sleep without recording them by accident, and so now I can only remember part of the end of my last dream.

This dream took place inside a fictional version of The E House, possibly a version of it from one or more past dreams, because I had memories and possibly false memories of it.

This house was more than one floor and even had a store connected to it, and it even had an elevator.

It looked nothing like the real E House, but somehow I knew what it was supposed to be.

My memories and possibly false memories of the house included me knowing about the unused floors of the house that you could access through an elevator down a hallway that no one really uses, and the unused floors were somewhat creepy / scary and had a sort of paranormal / supernatural feel to them combined with the feeling of something familiar and like this area contained objects from my past like walking into a small old corner of your subconscious.

Some strange paranormal and / or supernatural and natural things may have even happened in the unused floors during some of my adventures through them but I can not remember, even though I found these areas a bit creepy and scary I still liked exploring them because usually no one else was there, and there was something familiar about them and it was like stepping into forgotten parts of the past.

It was one of those places that you would normally avoid in a dream and in real life, a place that emits strange energy that scares you away (a no go zone basically, somewhere that you are not supposed to go, or something so unknown and different that you mind is afraid of it), and that even scares away most dream characters; but I had a personal connection to this place because it was my grandfather CE’s now abandoned house and before that it was his and my grandmother DE’s house when they were alive so there were happy memories there so I was able to have enough courage to explore it when most others would not.

Me, my mom, my brother GC, and my brothers TDC and KDC were at the house like we were going to spend the night and possibly move in so we were picking our rooms and even thinking about how to arrange the furniture and what rooms would be used for what and converted to what.

I walked past some open rooms on the left side of a hallway, we were possibly on an upper floor but I am not sure, one or more were bedrooms but some could be converted into whatever so I was trying to decide which should be bedrooms and which should be family rooms  and living rooms et cetera.

At the end of the hallway you could turn left, there was at least one table and some chairs before this, and on the hallway on the left side was the quiet mostly unused hallway that led to the elevator to reach the unused floors that were probably somewhat dusty and possibly had some spider webs and that most people were afraid to go to.

I wanted to explore these unused floors again because it had been awhile, the fear and energy I felt just thinking about those floors were not enough to stop me, and I knew that I had survived the other times even if strange things did happen sometimes and there were possibly some threats there sometimes.

Before I could walk up the hallway to the elevator my male cousin ME walked behind me, I greeted him, and I asked him if he wanted to go exploring the unused floors but did not because he was afraid like most people and I could not convince him to go because that is how afraid people were of those areas.

I asked him what did he want to do then, he replied that he wanted to play cards, and he pulled a deck of playing cards out of his pocket and he moved the table and chairs at the beginning of the hallway on the left and we sat down to play.

I told him that it has been years since I played any normal playing card-type game so he would have to teach me the rules of whatever game we play, he decided on the game Spades, and he shuffled the deck and handed out the cards.

I asked him how to play and he started looking at the top of my cards, I try to avoid letting him see them, he tapped the cards, he pulled out a few cards and took them, and then he pulled out a sheet of paper and pen and started writing and doing calculations and saying them out-loud.

I noticed drawn and color faces on the bottom of the page in different styles, I complimented him on the drawings if those were his, and I asked him about the calculations that he was doing and how do we play because I do not remember having to do any of this in the past in Spades.

He did not respond and he kept doing his calculations and pulling some of my cards, I felt that he was just cheating and pretending that this was part of the game, and then he stopped the game and said that he wanted to play dodgeball and he pulled out a dodgeball.

I noticed some windows or something so I said that we should move somewhere else or outside, and so we started walking.

We reached a hallway where part of the wall opened automatically to the store by the clothing section, and we saw an overweight woman with light-color skin with yellow hair wearing somewhat nice clothing and a large pearl necklace or pearl-like necklace who saw us and asked us some questions.

I sensed that if we did not answer her questions to her liking that she would call the police thinking that we did not belong there, in the corner of my eyes I saw ME shaking his head no for me to not answer her questions, but I did anyway and I told her that we live here and then I corrected myself and I said that this was our grandfather’s house and that we were staying there and were probably moving in.

The woman then went back to shopping, I turned to see that ME was gone, and so I walked into the store looking for him.

Eventually I found him walking near a group of young people with dark-color skin wearing athletic clothing, and so I walked over to him.

He seemed angry at me and he would not look at me, I guess he was mad at me for answering the woman’s questions, and now he did not want to play dodgeball or anything.

I felt a bit bad but there was nothing that I could do, and so I turned around to walk back to the house areas to probably go explore the unused areas but I woke up

The end,
