Well, I really should have posted this a week ago when I had the dream, but… I’ve been incredibly lazy this last week (I suppose my excuse is being as lazy as I can before I start my new job). So, I did have the dream related to the first task during the first task, but I’m posting it a week late. Oops. I had this the morning of 02/27 (all non-lucid, as well).
[spoiler]I’m in an abandoned house looking for treasure. While I’m there, bandits pull up in cars and trucks, and begin their own search. I do my best to stay unseen, though I have to do so pretty actively and have a few close calls, but I still attempt to look for treasure even so. However, I’m not able to get anything because I’m too busy hiding, trying to stay unseen. At one point, once they’re done looking upstairs, I head up there to have better luck avoiding them and see if I can find anything, but apparently that made three ghosts upset, because they came out and started being unfriendly, so I had them to avoid as well. I finally book it out the front door (the ghosts having been the last straw), and I jump in a silver Chevy pickup truck. I’m not sure whether it was my truck or theirs, but it was effectively mine after that.
It was backed into its parking spot, so I put it into drive and hit the gas, speeding back home (my parents’ home, not my current one). I show my parent my new car, and I like it in the dream, even though I wouldn’t while awake. She’s unsure about it, and wants to see the trunk, since in the dream, when I was behind it, somehow it had one. I open it before she gets there, and when I look inside, there’s a bunch of trash bags, as well as a dead guy. I never was “told” by the dream that he was dead, but considering I closed it immediately, I’m pretty sure he was. I tell her it’s full of trash and that she doesn’t want to see it, but she’s so insistent that she starts trying to do so anyway, first going around back, and then I’m afraid she’ll try to get to the trunk release in the front.
Not wanting her to see all that, I jump in the driver’s seat, turn on the car, and turn around in the driveway as fast as I’m able, and hit the gas down the driveway, trying to hit her in the process as she sidesteps behind her van. I’m still speeding down the road, but I’m really enjoying the maneuverability the truck has. Somehow, a guy joins me in it, and then he tests it out (while the truck is still going) by flooring it down a long road, then turning and stopping on a dime right in front of a dumpster decorated for such a purpose. I tell him that’s why I like the truck, and then drive back to the abandoned house. The bandits are gone, but they come back while I’m still looking around. I have to go through the whole hiding thing again, thankfully without ghosts this time, but have the (not so) bright idea to go upstairs first, then realize that they haven’t been up there yet either.
On my way up, one of them, a young guy, comes down a hallway. I press myself against the wall, obviously in plain sight, but somehow he doesn’t see me and keeps going thanks to my surety that I wouldn’t be seen. I jump up in the area, but it somehow turns into a game, and eventually I have a very close call with masked twins. Soon, they rush down my corridor, and I jump into a large cement room with numerous people, but they catch onto my right boot as I fly in. (The atmosphere of the room felt like an American football party.) I do my best to shake them off, but it’s not working well. I realize that I’ll slowly lose altitude, so I make my way over to a wall before I go too far down, and try to kick them off against that. I still have no luck, so I go over to the ceiling near the middle of the room and grab on one of the wood planks. I try kicking them off against the ceiling, and that finally works.
However, I lose my boot as well, and it starts falling on the other side of a table below me. Somehow it ends up on the other side of the table with me as I turn the other way, and I grab the boot and start trying to get it on before I land.[/spoiler]
I’m assuming the truck ride counts as a ride… but if it doesn’t, I understand. I guess I kind of gave those twins a ride with them hanging on my boot in midair… though I wasn’t quite happy they were there. Though, I’m not sure if “a different type of ride” still requires me to be riding something, or if it’s just a ride in general. I guess the last one kind of involved a chase, but the truck ride didn’t. I was just speeding cause I could.
