    Color legend: Non-dream Dream Lucid

    Lucid #149: Chicken Fight

    I'm working as a consigliere and fixer for a 20-year-old Filipino billionaire. He's a natural genius, a derivatives trader that controls a global financial/oil and gas empire. He relies on me and a talented, resourceful woman named Rachel as his on-the-ground "problem solvers".

    I'm in a dark room watching a movie projection on a wall. The presentation is talking about some aspect of derivatives trading. I get some kind of message or phone call with a new assignment, and I hurry out of the room. There's somebody that I need to apprehend and speak to that's a spectator at a nearby cockfight. I know that both my boss and Rachel are counting on me to handle this and I feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to get it done right.

    It's night, and I take a set of metal stairs down to a dusty street, hanging a right into an alleyway. I see a metal door to my right and hear some faint crowd noise -- that's where the cockfight is being held. I detect movement to my left and I sense that a huge man is lunging toward me to tackle me. I twist my body around and throw a right-handed haymaker that catches the man right in the mouth, stopping him short. I knee him underneath the short ribs and he staggers back. Something tips me off that this is a dream and
    I become lucid.

    The man comes stalking back toward me, as fat and muscular as a bear. I'm struggling with what to do next. I have a strong urge to get right to lucid goals but I'm trying to process in my mind what will become of my boss and Rachel if I fail this task. I slowly retreat from my assailant, not ready to act until I'm sure that I'm not letting down real people who depend on me.

    I finally convince myself that Rachel and my boss are just dream characters. My attacker is about four feet away when I wind up and hit him with a two-handed force push that sends him flying violently back, where he lands in a heap. His body has gouged a nearly foot-deep furrow in the dusty ground and, more surprisingly, has turned into a huge roasted chicken!



    I walk onward as calmly as I can. I hear a few DCs chattering in surprise behind me but I try to put it out of my mind. They don't care. They're just looking.

    Walking between two compact cars and onto an empty paved road, I look up at the sky. The stars are out tonight and I can see far more of them out here than I can with all of the city lights that are near my home IWL. I jump up, getting a good fifty feet into the air. I'm on the edge of a much larger city, one where I'm sure that I can find the means to accomplish my Task of the Month and Task of the Year goals.

    I hit a second jump, this one slightly higher than the first, but start to sink down again. No, now I'm flying. I imagine myself catching an updraft the way a hawk would catch a thermal. I shoot upward, high above the city. The sky becomes thick and bright with stars and I know that I can go anywhere that I want. I decide that the Colosseum is just a little ways off in a darkened portion of the city. I begin flying that direction when
    I suddenly feel Wife's hand slam into my pillow in waking life. She rolls over a couple more times. I try to go in for DEILD but I'm a bit too adrenalized to make it back under.

      Ha ha! I assure you that in context it would have been much less appetizing: jammed in a furrow of dirt, and seconds ago it was the burly, hairy man trying to rip my arms off.

      You've got such a great imagination. I love the set up at the start. Also, that roasted chicken force push was epic. That's like one of those random dream powers that you'd never think of on your own. I mean, force push hell yeah! But ending it with a roated chicken?

      Congrats on the ld! Cool start of the dream and very creative way to deal with a problematic DC. This picture prevents me from any further thoughts.

      Thanks, man! The setup was cool. I was so into the whole thing that I'm surprised I managed to get lucid. It was later in the morning, though, and luckily dreaming was on my mind.

      Yeah, I couldn't believe the roasted chicken force push when it happened! I had this sudden surge of guilt like I had just done something really over the line to this DC but after giving myself a sec to calm down and stop worrying about everything, I decided that nothing could be a better way to handle a mean DC. =)

      Thanks! I was trying to stop the guy, but my subC's chosen method of doing so was way, way more creative and effective than anything I've come up with.
