Story Twists Aren’t as Fun When You’re the Twist
Does anyone have one of those dream analysis books?
Good. I need some help on this one.
Let’s say you dreamed that you and two other people found yourselves chased in a city, captured, and held captive by a psychopathic bad guy.
At some point, let’s say you manage to wrap a wooden handle around his necktie and (mostly) choke him to death. Thus, you escape.
Once loose in the city, the three of you get separated. As you run on alone, you get the feeling that the bad guy is going to appear behind you, even though it’s not really possible for him to find you after running so far.
He does appear behind you. As a zombie.
You kill him nice and good this time.
After running more, you find yourself on a university campus. However, something’s not right. As the students move towards you, they look like creepy versions of little children. At this point, you suspect that you are hallucinating and may be psychotic.
The killed zombie reappears and bites your hand.
You counterattack and start ripping apart his skull with your clawed fingers.
The zombie screams kind of like your friend.
You realize it *is* your friend. More hallucinating, apparently.
Your dream-self then realizes that YOU were in fact the psychopathic bad guy imprisoning your companions (and probably killing them).
Seeing yourself as co-victim was just another delusion.
Okay. There. You got that?
Hit the books, folks. Surely someone else has had that dream.
