I had another dream last night. This one was in black and white.
I was swimming, near a large nuclear warship, with an anonymous friend. We were trying hard to keep quiet so that we wouldn’t get caught. As we dove underwater we saw a porthole in the side of the warship. There were people looking out from inside! They were being kept as prisoners. I swam further underwater to get a closer look. But something was different. I could suddenly breath underwater! I quickly swam back to the surface and told my friend to come swim next to the porthole. He did, and realized that he could also breath. That’s when the realization came. The government was keeping these people as prisoners because they were merpeople. And as a result, when we got close enough to them underwater, we could breath (I think this same magical effect was in the 1984 hit movie: Splash).
Well, I needed to free the merpeople. So I started unscrewing the bolts around the porthole. I could take my time, since I didn’t need to surface for air.
As I finally opened the window, a woman sergeant walked through the prison’s door and saw what I was doing. But it was too late! the merpeople and I swam away madly, in fear of the sergeant. But then… then, I witnessed something that wasn’t in “splash.” By the sergeant’s orders, it started to rain. And the sound of rain will destroy the ability of the merpeople to share their underwater breathing skills. I had to surface! Fast! As the rain poured down the previously gray-scale water turned bright blue.
and that’s when I awoke.
