This dream has been viewed 3413 times.June 13, 1991 "Invited to Dinner" I was a man in this dream. First of all I was invited to eat dinner with this older couple. At first I was shy, but they sat me down, and they lit up the most beautiful candles, that were in the shape of well-dressed frogs and doves. For a while I am just fascinated by this candle, then I begin to eat dinner. I don't remember any more what I was eating, but when I looked across the table to see what my hosts were eating, it looked better. Then I look out the window, and across the way I could see a portable house; I can see students and their teacher coming out of the portable, and for some reason I go into a sort of trance. I am enchanted by this ordinary thing. The two older people notice my mesmerism, and I hear them say "it always happens". I was sucked into a most bizarre place, but all the kids I saw from the school house are there, and I am on some huge chess board, I was reminded of Alice in Wonderland. Some kids carried inflatable pillows, they were clear with hearts and diamonds on them. This was some sort of mad game. The kids would fight one another, and the winner would put his pillow down on a square, and then both would move away, and fight someone else. In the beginning the game was harmless enough; no one was getting hurt, but then the kids began to mutate slightly, some of them had fangs now; they moved about much quicker, and now some of them even had weapons. I find myself wearing armor, the kind that the Romans wore. I don't think this is odd, but I am very confused; this game makes no sense to me. Many of the children challenged me, but I was much bigger than they were, and I just shove them down, but even so I begin to feel afraid of them. There were so many of them, and they kept getting crazier and crazier all the time. I was thinking about what lunatics they are, and I also notice I am not wearing that armor anymore, but my blue coat. I am tiring quickly, and the kids were just plain mad, I feel I must rest, I can no longer keep up with this. To my horror the kids have become monsters, horrible-looking ones, and one held a sheathed sword down to my chest. He began saying something, I forget what it was he was saying, but it was one of those victory speeches, and he and two of his friends join in, pointing their swords to my chest, and they speak, too. Then I hear the voice of the older woman who I had left at the dinner table. "Listen, you can hear what they are saying to him," said the lady. I knew that I was in some kind of dream, but that I was hypnotized into it, and I needed someone else to help me get out of it. I was afraid that the monsters would kill me, and they pressed their swords into me a little harder, though they never broke my skin, it still hurt. I tried to push the sword closest to my face away, but it was no use. I knew these monsters intended to kill me slowly. The monsters were too strong and I was too weak. I forget how, but I was rescued in time.
Additional Comments:I am not sure what the stuff with the candles was all about, but I am guessing maybe because I dreamt I was a man in this dream it might be related to a past life. The kids turning into monsters seems to sum up my feelings about kids in general, as I think they're mean little people.
