A Long Night - Dreams About The Same Person

by Anne

Ive been having dreams about the same person for almost a month now. in this particular dream i am at a sleepover type thing at his house. And im staying in a room with an old friend of mine, and a girl that i barely know.

They invite a bunch of guys to come in the room, so I leave and walk down a long staircase and into a living room. I see the boy that i often dream about sitting on top of a tall cement wall. He is sitting beside his ex girlfriend, and quite a few other people.

So i climb on top of the wall and sit beside him. For some reason he gets very angry about this and he pushes me off of the wall. With my fall i hurt my ankle very badly and i try to climb back up the staircase back to the bedroom, but the staircase just keeps getting longer and longer.

Then his Mother finds me and puts a cold bathcloth on my face and she takes me home. Later in the dream i wake up in my bedroom, and answer my cell phone. My brother is calling me to tell me he is going to come over. Not long after he arrives, it starts snowing very heavily.

He tells me he is going to leave and go to his house and get some things before the snow gets too deep. I beg him not to go and not to leave me alone. But he leaves. And i stay alone for a while until the snow gets so deep that i cannot open the door to outside. So i go back into my room and try to go back to sleep.

The next time i wake up, it is to a car door slamming, I assume its my brother, so i go to open the door for him. But when i get into the living room i find that the door is already open and all the snow is gone. and the window curtain is open. and there is an unfamiliar man in my driveway. he is very deformed. and is walking up to the door. I quickly shut the window and door.

I sit on the couch in fear.. But as soon as i think to lock the back door i hear the doorknob turn.. Then i woke up. I was still a little startled from my dream. So i got up and went into the living room, only to find that the door and window curtain are open. I was freaked out..
