Very weird, vivid dream
Very weird, very vivid dream last night.
I was leading a group of 2 or 3 other women of varying ages as we were trying to hide from a threat. The threat was a woman, humanoid, but not human - Smollet. Yeah, I don’t know where the name came from either. With two T's, it's a Scottish writer of adventure novels, but I had never heard of him.
We were hiding in a building or subdivision under construction, going from room to room or building to building looking for a secure place to hide.
The Smollet had teeth like a piranha. She was slim, had long brown hair in a ponytail, wore jeans and a button down shirt and had a bluish aura. Other than the teeth and blue aura, she was kind of me.
While fleeing, alone this time, I ran into a workman in coveralls, carrying insulation over his shoulder, who was only nominally curious, looking at me with no real expression.
I hurried on, watching him over my shoulder, and met up with the group again. We were still looking for a safe place to hide.
Alone again, I ran into the man laying insulation on a flooring area that must have been a roof for another area. I looked at him and he looked at me and opened his mouth.
He was a Smollet too! Only his aura was red and I realized he wasn't looking at me. He was looking over my shoulder. At the woman Smollet, sneaking up behind me.
He went to confront her. They were circling each other like prize fighters while I fled in the opposite direction. And woke up.
The dream dictionaries say that dreams about hiding mean I'm not facing up to a situation or dealing with an issue.
Possibly. The company I work for is being shopped around. Whether a new owner would be better or worse remains to be seen. Maybe it bothers me more than I consciously realize?
Or maybe I just watch too much Doctor Who?
