    Creepy Soldier Dream

    I think I was a soldier. We were on the rooftop of a small building, helping some sort of refugees cross to the next building via ziplining. It was quite far to the next building, about 100 meters or so. The refugees were all in dark cloaks that covered most of their bodies, with only their faces visible. A few of them were already on the other side, and I was hooking up another refugee to the zipline harness. I pushed him, and he went zooming into the air. Halfway through, the harness got stuck, and he remained dangling 2 storeys in the air. He started to panic, but then a small military jeep with no roof drove under him and stopped. There were 5 soldiers on it, and they were yelling for him to just jump, and that they would catch him.

    The refugee looked relieved, got a knife from somewhere in his cloak, and proceeded to cut himself loose. Within a few seconds, he fell down. Luckily, the soldiers on the jeep caught him just as they said.

    I looked down at them. The refugee was smiling, hugging the soldiers, thanking them for saving his life. He sat down in the front area of the jeep. Then, one of the soldiers who was standing behind the refugee looked up at me, smiled creepily, and took a knife from his belt. He then removed the refugee's hood, revealing his head and neck. He grabbed the refugee's hair, and in a slow and deliberate motion, the soldier dragged the knife across the refugee's neck.

    I saw the blood oozing from the refugee's neck. The soldier released his grip on the man's head, after which the man dropped forward on the jeep's floor.

    It was horrible.

    My perspective suddenly shifted, and I became one of the soldiers on the jeep – the driver, I think. The mutilated body of the refugee was to my right. For some reason, I went over him, swiped my thumb across the pool of blood on the floor, and drew a cross on the man's forehead.

    I went back to the driver's seat and drove away.

    I mean wtf is up with this dream. Why would I even... 0______0

      Ah, these nightmares can be tough stuff. The ones where something awful happens to a DC with whom you've formed a bond are particularly bad. In your case, you had the personal stake of a caring rescuer. Having been treated to a grisly "murder witness" nightmare like this a weeks back, I can only say that I really sympathize!

      Here's one idea that you might find interesting. With mine, the nightmare scene would flash back through my mind every once in a while over the next few days. I'd try to catch myself as this started and instead imagine the scene taking place as a lucid dream that I would change. I figured it was good practice and was way more pleasant than letting my mind replay a gruesome double homicide for me!

      That's a great idea, I try to do that as well, though not as much lately as I haven't had too many nightmares. I'll keep that in mind though, thanks!

      Ouch, yeah, you're right ... that was a bit creepy. I was starting to worry about the folks in that jeep just before they revealed themselves!

      Yup, and for them to do it so slowly and deliberately..it was horrifying to watch, especially since I wasn't lucid and I thought it was all real :O
