Screwy Dream

Brother-in-Law - My brother-in-law is after me to do horrible things to me. I flee to a friend's home who helps me by keeping all of us in the dark. Appearances by theonlyruth and fullcontactmuse. (NOTES: My BIL is an extremely sweet man. I have never had any problem with him at all. I'm not sure why he would be the bad guy in this. Also, I don't really know Ruth. I've met her once in a LARP at a convention. She seemed like a neat lass but I don't know her well enough to trust her with my life. Though, in the dream, we seemed to be best buds.)

EDIT: After chatting about the dream with Rory, I've figured out what it is all about. It's amusing to me now that I know what my mind is working though and the visual cues it was giving me.

This was a pretty disturbing dream. I was at house and my brother-in-law (BIL) was there. He was a man who had brutalized me before. This time would be no exception. However, this time, I fled, running down the road. I ran to Ruth's house where she and Ryan lived. I begged her to help me, to hide me because my BIL was coming for me and, this time, I thought he would kill me.

She immediately let me in and turned off all the lights. I hurried through her house and found a closet to hide in. I could hear him talking with her as soon as he arrived. He told her he had seen a prowler around the house and wanted to make sure it was safe. Ruth had no choice but to let him in.

I remained hidden in a pile of stuffed animals until Ruth came into the bedroom with a boy maybe four years old who curled up next to me to listen to a story. (My cat apparently curled up next to me, pressing to my tummy.) He saw me and his eyes widened. I shushed him gently and told him that a bad guy was out to get me and we had to be really quiet.

Rory saw me at this point and asked me what I was doing. "Hiding from my brother in law."


"Because, he's going to kill me if he finds me."

"Oh. Let me see if I can distract him." Rory walked off.

I climbed out of the closet I was in and snuck through the house. My BIL was sure I was here in the house but with the lights all off, he couldn't see very well and couldn't figure out where I was. I could see him. We passed so close to each other. I kept to the other side of a pillar from him. He kept reaching about, sensing me but he could not reach me.

I turned away to flee and found myself inside a barn/garage. Right where I was supposed to be as I explained that the animal we were tracking was very shy but dangerous when cornered. We spread out looking under the cars and around the barrels. I crept around one car and came face to face with my BIL. Yelping in surprise, I turned to run as he reached out to grab me.
