Chapter One

I JUST WANNA BE LOVED

The dream takes place in her parents two family house where she currently resides in the basement. So I came to the house to see her, but she wasn't there at that time. So the guy who lives with her sister on the 1st floor let me in to my girlfriends' apartment. He doesn't like me that much in real life, so he didn't say too much in the dream. As I walked into the small space, the lights were out, but I could still see all of the furniture and other items very clearly. I looked to the right where her night stand is located, and I expected to see the decorations she has on the stand.

But more importantly, I expected to see the pink journal that I bought for her on Valentine's Day. In reality, I've always been tempted to look in it just to see what she has written about me. Is there anything in there about love? But to my surprise the journal wasn't there anymore and the decorations looked old and dismal. The only thing left from the journal was the decorated stand that it came with. Then I turned to the left of the room and saw that the 52 inch screen television that has always been there has been moved. But there is just a big empty space there now.

Then I looked away for awhile, and when I turned back the 52 inch TV was back in sight. But ironically it wasn't in the exact place where it was before. It was a few inches off. So I sat on her couch, and the guy who doesn't like me says, "Here's the remote ... your mother will be here shortly!" As I sat there, I said under my breath, "This fool knows that she's my girlfriend!" But he didn't say it as a joke. He had a serious look on his face as he said it. Then he went back upstairs.

FENCED IN

The dream takes place once again in her two-family house. But this time I am walking down the stairs from the top floor of the house. And my mother is walking in front of me, and my seventeen year old brother is walking ahead of my mother down the stairs. My mother is mumbling or saying something, but I can't make out what she's saying. We then exit the house from the front door located on the first floor. And before we exit, I can still hear my mother saying something, but again I am unable to hear the words that she's saying. And before she exits through the door, she points at the door on the first floor residence, and says, "And this one."

The look on her face shows signs of disgust. So we finally exit the front door of the house, and I can see a beautiful front yard ahead of me. The grass looks bright green, and the spring like breeze shows its softness. But there is a standard silver colored fence separating the house from the yard. The fence is not locked. But it has the simple lever that goes up and down to enter and exit. And from the front entrance stairs of the house, I can see my mother and brother passing through the fence. I can clearly see my mother lifting the lever of the fence as she passes through.

My brother is running back and forth through the yard like a small child. He is smiling and laughing. As I walk towards the fence I noticed a medium size squirrel scaling the fence. So I ignored it, and extended my hand to lift the lever up from the fence so that I may pass through too. But before I could even touch the lever, the squirrel quickly jumped from the fence onto my face attacking me. I cannot see anything in front of me, the only thing I can see is my hands desperately waving and swatting to get the squirrel off of me. And when I woke up from the dream, I was actually swatting away my entangled sheets.

THE BATHROOM DOOR

I am asleep on the floor in my deceased aunt's house, and I am dressed in a full business suit. I can hear someone taking a shower as I am lying directly in front of the bathroom door. I start to slowly wake up, but as I begin to open my eyes, my vision is blurry. As I look around with blurred vision, I can see her dresser which has also appeared in a previous dream. On the dresser, there is one picture of the woman I've been dating and a picture of my recently deceased father.

But the picture of her was rather large, and my dad's picture was rather small. But the small picture of my dad was in front of her large one. So I finally get up from sleeping in front of the bathroom door, and I notice that the bathroom door is now open. And I can only see her legs as she is sitting on the edge of the bath tub swinging her feet back and forth. She is wearing a pink silk robe. But I cannot see her face even though I know who she is.

Then I walk pass the open bathroom door into another area of the house where my cousin whom I haven't seen in years suddenly appears (He was really close to my dad). He came in and said, "I've been waiting over an hour for you." And after he said this, the dream starts from the beginning when I was on the floor in my suit. So I get up from the floor again, and when I look back, I can see the unidentified woman walking around in the background while my cousin waited for me. But I still never saw her face.

WEEPING BABY

The dream takes place in my apartment where I currently reside with my mother. I place my keys in the front door to unlock it, and then I push the door open, and enter my apartment. As I step in I can hear the loud cry's of a baby coming from the second bedroom which is positioned towards the rear of the apartment. As I stand still in the middle of the living room, I call out my mother's name first, and then I call out my girlfriend's name.

When I notice that no one is home, I quickly rush to the back room. And without any hesitation, I pick up the little baby boy that is still crying, and then I place him on my right shoulder. And when I pick the child up, he instantly stops crying. Then I pat him on his back, and I rock him while I'm walking around the apartment, and I tell him that everything is alright. And with the baby in my arm, I grab the telephone and immediately call my girlfriend.

She picks up the phone and I begin to scream and curse at her. I start to shout, "Where are you!!" She replies that she is at work, and the reason she left the baby alone is because she thought I was coming right back. So I called her stupid and hung up the phone. Then I squeezed him really tight and close to my body, and I kept saying, "My son, my son, my son."

PRECIOUS MEMORIES

The dream takes place at the apartment complex where I grew up as a child. But the first part of the dream takes place inside of my current apartment. My dad (father is deceased) had come to my room where I currently share a room with my 17 year old brother. In the dream my dad was talking to my brother in my room about his negative behavior. I walk behind my father and whisper in his ear.

I said, "And dad, he hasn't even grieved for you yet." (This is the first time I actually acknowledged in my dreams that my father has died.) Then my father said to my mother, "Fine, until he grieves then he is on punishment." Then I walk my father out of the front door of my apartment. And then the next scene jumps back to my grandparent's apartment complex where I grew up as a child.

This time my father is sitting sideways in the back seat of a car with his feet hanging out of the car. I then pat his hair and said, "Dad, why haven't you cut your hair." (It was like I haven't seen him in a long time.) He just chuckled. Then he did something strange. He stretched out both of his feet towards me as to untie his shoes for him. So I start to untie his right shoe first, and as I finally untie both of my father's shoes, I begin to cry uncontrollably.

And after I took both shoes and socks off of my father's feet, I start to wash and rub his feet. But I didn't have any water to wash his feet, so I began to wash his feet with the streams of tears that were coming down my face. As I cried, he then rubbed my head as he did when I was a child and said, "Don't worry Ted (My brother's nickname), I understand, and it will be alright." Then I woke up and there were real tears on my pillow.

BIO-HAZARD

The dream takes place inside my old elementary school. I am standing on the open roof top of the school just talking with other students. But the students aren't children. They are all adults except for my 17 year old brother. And we are all wearing blue t-shirts, which remind me of children going on a field trip together. As I am talking to others aloud, a loud voice comes over the intercom. The only words I can remember coming across the intercom were: "Bio-hazard" and "Terrorism". Then the female's voice on the loud speaker said, "All anti-terrorism personnel report to your stations for preparations ... this is not a drill!!"

My brother quickly jumps up and dashes away to get his anti-terrorism t-shirt on. I could see at least one other person with a bright orange t-shirt on which indicated that they too were "anti-terrorism". So I sprung up and ran for the roof tops exit door. As I am desperately running I notice an attractive female who has taken notice to me while I am running. She was standing next to the exit door. This part of the dream was in slow-motion, but then as I run pass her to go up the stairs, the dream is no longer in slow motion anymore. It was almost like I noticed her, but at the same time I didn't notice her.

I am then running really fast down the dull brown stairs to join my brother who I assumed was in the basement of the school getting his t-shirt. (The brown stairs are the same stairs in my elementary school). But instead of going to the basement, I make a stop at the first floor office to look for an anti-terrorism t-shirt to put on myself even though I wasn't chosen as a designated "anti-terrorism" person. This office is located on the first floor above the basement level. So I open the main office door, but the office looks abandoned, there are only stacks of brown boxes on top of each other. So I closed the door.

Then, somehow I find myself going back up the stairs to the open roof-top. But this time I have a very attractive female walking with me up the stairs. She has her body close to mine, and she has one arm wrapped around my shoulder and neck. All I can remember about her is that she has black and shiny hair. And her hair was very full and beautiful. I could feel her hair on my face. When I gaze into her face, I could see that she resembles someone from Hawaiian or Asian decent.

So right before she and I reach the door of the open roof-top, I see the woman who had noticed me while I was running down the stairs. But this time she was sitting half way in front of the door to the roof-top. She had a look of anger on her face when she saw me climbing the stairs with this other woman in my arms. So I quickly looked at her, and she stared at me. I didn't say a word to her, and she didn't speak to me. She just held her head down as we walked passed her. Then the other woman and I walked through the door of the rooftop together.

Finally, I left the woman on the roof-top where she would be safe. Then I ran back down the stairs. But this time I am gasping for air because the toxins were filling the building as well as the staircase very quickly. I am running for my life! And right before I run out of oxygen, I burst through the first floor exit door that leads to the outside of the building. And when I got outside, I placed my hands on my knees and I began to regurgitate from the toxins. Afterwards, I was able to breathe.

BREAKING & ENTERING

A woman is trying to force her way into the front door of my current apartment. I am on the other side of the door forcefully trying to keep her out. The door slightly opens and closes as I struggle to keep it closed. In the end, she was unable to enter the front door of my apartment.

GUSHING WATER

The dream begins in the living room of my apartment. I am standing in my living room with an old elementary school buddy of mine. We then proceed to exit the front door of my apartment. So I close the front door and lock it like I always do when I leave. Then we started to walk down the hill to get to the bottom of my street. In reality, my apartment complex is situated on the top of the road. And as I get to the bottom of the street, the scene of the dream suddenly changes, and my friend was no longer with me anymore.

And I found myself in a movie theater with my father who is deceased, and with my mother who is alive. I was sitting next to my dad, and my mom was sitting on the right side of my dad. The movie hadn't started yet, and I was holding a large bucket of popcorn. I then got up from the row that my parents were on, and I sat a row or two behind them. And I just smiled as I watched them sit together. It was very strange because I was an adult, but I felt more like a child in the dream.

Then the dream jumps to another scene where I am back at my apartment fixing my bathroom sink and cabinet (A week earlier there were men at my apartment replacing the sink and bathroom cabinet). The sink and cabinet are now missing, and I am helping someone fix the water valves in the bathroom. This is ironic because in reality I am not a "handy" man. So we turned one valve, and water starts to gush out very quickly! I then run down to the basement to try to shut the water off! I keep turning and turning the valve to try and stop the water!
