the dream

So in the dream, Im running. And there are these monks who
are looking for me. Did I mention I was in the woods? Well,
Im in the woods. And Im dressed in this brown dress with an
empire waist (you know, like Jane Austin kind of clothes)
and the neckline on this thing is much lower than I would
ever be comfortable wearing in real life, but in the dream
Im totally comfortable with it.
Im not sure why exactly that is importiant, but I remember
thinking about it as Im running.
Anyway, I know these woods like the back of my hand, and I
want to find this sort of alcove where I can hide, but
before I can get there, I have to cross this sort of
clearing, and I get half way across it when this guy in a
red velvate coat catches me, and he has this bottle of
water in one hand, and a staff in the other. Let me say now
that I instinctively know that both these things are
magical. Im not sure how I know, I just do. Well, this guy
throws some of the water on me, like it's holy water, and
Im posessed or something, and then somehow, he gets me to
the ground, and Im struggling, and he puts his hand on my
leg, but it's not like it sounds. He's squeezing my thigh,
like he's feeling for something, and I realize that he is
expecting my legs to turn into a tail. And I keep trying to
tell him that he has the wrong girl because there is no way
Im a mermaid, but he won't listen.

Well, he is caught off caurd by the fact that my legs are
still my legs, and I push him off of me, and get up, and I
throw his bottle in one direction as far as I can throw it,
and then throw his staff in the other. I do this because I
know that he has to run after them, and I need to buy
myself some time, then I take off.

I reach the alcove, and Im trying to pull this covering out
of this tree. I know that if I cover up with this thing,
they won't be able to find me, but it won't come down. Now,
here is where it gets wierd.
It's like the dream splits in two. In one version, I get
the cover down from the tree, and I cover up with it, but
not all the way. I leave my head sticking out so that I can
see what's going on, and the monks, who are walking on this
path in the rocks above me, look down and see me. I know
that they can see me, but I don't get up and run before
they can get to me, oh no, I choose to stay and hide. Of
course, they find me, and Im caught.
But in the other version, that is happening at the same
time that the other version is going on, I give up trying
to get the cover down, and I just hide behind the tree
instead. But I look over, and there is this guy in a green
coat, and he's just standing there, looking at me
like.........like I belong to him, and he's just patiently
waiting for me to realize it and stop running away.

Well, I make a break for it, but, of course, he catches me.
And he has me by the forearms, and he looks me in the eyes
and says "Isn't this what you wanted?"

And then I wake up.


How messed up is that?
