What kind of dream was that? Or was it a nightmare?
I was reading a book and then I grew tired, so I fell asleep. I don’t know when it started but suddenly, I was dreaming. I forgot how my dream began and all I know is that I am in Japan with my friend. We were supposed to meet my mom somewhere because we’re going back to the Philippines. So, we we’re driving along this long highway. I was seating in the backseat with my friend and we had a driver (this is a sign that I am dreaming since we don’t have one in real life). You know how in dreams, we just know things even though we haven’t encountered it yet in real life? Well, this time, I know that I am close with the driver and he is a good man. He is the chubby, talkative and friendly middle aged type. And that is why my friend and I were comfortably sitting there in the backseat. We we’re just chatting, when suddenly, I noticed that the car was catching speed. The car was going too fast and I started panicking. So I told the driver if maybe he could slow down a little bit. He did not notice me so I talked again. I asked if he was okay and that I am fine with taking the wheel if he’s tired (another sign that this is a dream, for I still don’t know how to drive). Still, the driver did not respond. What is weird is that I saw the driver’s eyes in the rear view mirror. It was red and I was creeped out. That was when I saw that we were going toward the sea. It was so fast and my friend was already screaming, begging the driver to stop. Still, he heard nothing and the car drove off into the sea. It was already sinking fast. And then it’s as if the drive woke up from some deep sleep that he realized what was happening. The water was already at our chest level when I forced to unlock the door. I took a deep breath, ready to take the plunge to escape the drowning car. The moment I submerged my head, I woke up.
The first though in my head when I opened my eyes was: “SHIT. What the hell was that?” Seriously, I was freaked out. I never had a dream like that before, or should I say a nightmare. It was exactly 7:58pm in my phone when I woke up. I wrote down everything I can remember from the dream and immediately took a shower to clear my head. I realized how weird it was. I am pondering on it’s meaning and I can’t think of anything. All I know is that I don’t want to die like that. I don’t want to die drowning, in the middle of nowhere, helpless. Damn, I will never forget this dream. I won’t sleep in the afternoon again. Happy Halloween to me!
