The dream started with me walking in the middle of a crowd on a wide road leading to a bridge with no driving cars or vehicles in sight. There were a lot of huge and futuristic buildings and skyscrapers towering over the road. I don't know where I or anyone else around me was headed, but I didn't have a lot of time to think about it as right when the dream began explosions started booming all around us, the crowd began in a frantic and frightened roar as they started running in each direction trying to flee all of the falling debris and fire rampaging around us. The futuristic buildings began to crumble in clouds of dust and fire, but nothing hit anyone in the crowd that I noticed...when the explosions from around us began to stop, the road that we were on began to crackle and disconnect from the ground as we came closer to the top of the buildings that were still standing, the road was floating.
Everyone was understandably confused and scared at this point, but with just as much little explanation that can be had for the road floating, it slowly began to drop down back to the ground. When it reached he ground, a sudden high-pitched and extremely loud whistle came from behind us (into the middle of the city). Everyone around me suddenly stopped in their tracks and became still and silent. Their eyes were wide open but there was no soul behind them...as if militantly trained, everyone began to march towards the sound, into the middle of the city, and into a giant globed shaped building that I felt wasn't there before. The building was made out of glass or something close to it I think, and the inside of it was extremely bright. I didn't understand what happened, what the whistle was, and why it seemed to control everyone except me (seemingly), but I knew that I would probably find answers where they were all being called. So I acted like them, marching soullessly to this building.
On the way, a little girl ran up to me and held my hand as if I were her parent...I thought to myself that she must have seen my hesitation earlier while everyone else started marching, and that she too was just acting like them and didn't want to be alone. Without any words, we knew we were going to stick together. I let go of her hand so that we would seem more like everyone else around us as we reached the huge globe building, and nervously made our way inside with the rest. Before we went in I noticed more of these types of buildings around the city, but the loud whistle came again and broke my observation, we walked into the building...The whole inside of the building was surprisingly gray and hollow, there were no separate rooms or sections, just a huge hollow empty room with strange looking chairs that the people around me automatically knew to sit in. Me and the girl sat next to each other as the giant room filled up, the door closing behind the last of them. I felt pretty anxious at this point, and the girl looked like she was pretty tired which I thought was a little strange given the circumstance, but at this point stranger things has happened so I thought little of it as she started to fall asleep and lean onto my side, and no one else seemed to notice so it was fine (I kept thinking a "body snatchers" moment was going to happen at this point).
Then, the door opened again, this time very loudly. The girl jolted awake, and everyone's attention was on these odd characters who begin walking to the front of the room. There were 4 of them, 2 were dressed in brown Nazi-looking suits, and two in the back that looked like the kind of secret service guys you'd see in movies guarding the white house with the white wires in their ears and black suits and glasses and such. The two nazi-looking fellows in the front faced everyone, and began to talk in a huge bellow that no human could possible make. I could not understand a word of the language he was speaking, but everyone around me was listening attentive and seemed to understand it all. As he was talking, huge holographic projections came up behind him I guess putting his words into visuals the way people do with powerpoint presentations...from what I can tell, he was outlining a certain set of rules and guidelines. The holographic image showed huge animated groups of people being assigned to certain buildings, certain jobs, and sometimes there were groups of people being burned alive.
This meeting was very short, as soon as the "men" were done giving these lectures they left quickly, followed by that piercing whistle sound. The people around me began to move up from their seats and walked in 2 straight lines out of the building. Me and the girl were still very confused at this point, but I think I understood a little bit about what was happening, and made a decision to find a opportunity to move away from the group, as wherever else these people were headed would cause a considerable amount of trouble for us. As we walked out, the girl clutched my hand in fear (I was scared about being seen with her, but I didn't let go of her hand). When we walked out, the night went away, and the bright futuristic buildings and roads turned into very gray and crumbled settings and the giant globes themselves disappeared, everything around us became a more modern version of war-torn locations. There were many people working in cruel labor, covered in dust and dirt, being watched by the same "suits" that followed behind the nazi-looking guys we saw in the giant globe. I don't remember how, but me and the girl managed to steer away from the group and made shelter in this abandoned building near a labor camp somehow.
We made our way to the very top of the building which happened to be a secret attic just below the roof (there was no way to get the the roof anyway). There we found 3 women who were also hiding out, they took us in politely enough, and the girl went to rest on the only mattress up there which was positioned near the shortest window (there were 3 windows, 1 at the north end and two on the left side). As she was sleeping I kept pacing back and forth wondering what was going to be our next move...I thought maybe the girl should stay here, it might be safer, and if I find a way out of here than I'll come back for her, or maybe we both should stay here and wait it out but, I knew we would be captured eventually...maybe that would be better than to risk being captured now. One of the women moved to the girl to see how she was doing, but she was careless and walked right in front of the window instead of bending down just below it, one of the guards immediate saw her and called a group over to capture us. There was nothing we could do, they were already inside the building and knew where we were...their foot steps become louder and louder with which second, filling me with more and more fear as they got closer...
As they got close enough, I began to hear more than foot steps, but strange gurgling noises and roars...what the hell was below us I thought to myself, then silence. Everything became still for a few seconds, maybe they went away? But why? The floor below us than began to crash open, the whole floor broke apart as the women disappeared and the little girl was the only one left who dropped into black nothing...my view went into first person at this point. The little girl dropped past the black and fell into a medical bed where she was restrained and unable to defend herself or run. Doctors came into the room gagging her so that she would not get too much on their nerves with screaming, and put his plate of tools on the side of the bed. More doctors with more tools came in the room, and I couldn't do anything...I couldn't move, just watch, I began feeling panicked and desperately tried to do anything to help, but I was stuck in this first person view, and my body didn't seem to exist. The doctors picked up their tools, one of them walking behind the bed, one of them stretching her legs apart, and the others deciding what they wanted to do....the doctor near her head began picking at her eyes with a short knife, and the one between her legs...well, at that point my anger and panic reached it's breaking point, and suddenly we are all back in the attic. Time just sent me back, moments before being caught. I instantly picked the girl up and left the abandoned apartment, leaving just as I heard the same roaring and gurgling nearing the entrance of the building.
We hid out wherever we could find cover, we never stayed in one spot though. A long time passed by, and we managed to find some food here and there that was thrown away, or if we were lucky we were able to steal some from some shops that were still allowed to be open, but they were becoming fewer and fewer as we kept moving. We reached exhaustion, and we had to stop...there was not a lot of directions left to go, everywhere was the same. The girl got weaker, and I was growing more and more hopeless. We found a blown out hole under a stone bridge, and stayed there for a day. The girl laying on my lap the whole time, silently...what was left to say. We fell asleep...
When I woke up, there was screaming and footsteps stomping everywhere. I didn't know what to think, but somehow the screaming of human voices was comforting. There was a resistance outside. All of the people began overpowering their watchers as me and the girl stood in the middle of it all, smiling. One of the men ran up to us and told us that they were all gathering at some shore, they were going to stop some group of people as they came by sea. I didn't know what he was talking about, but me and the girl ran with the resistance members until we reached a high cliff with a beach on the bottom of it. There was a rope ladder connected to the edge of the cliff where many of the people were going down, all shouting and ready to die for whatever cause that this unknown resistance set itself to.
Me and the girl decided not to go down, and we just watched from the high cliff, standing their anxiously wondering what was about to happen. A another man came up to me, this time old and very cynical. He told me that no matter what happened, "he" won't be stopped. I ignored him, not knowing what the hell was his problem. Then, the shouting of the men below quieted down. Mist came up on the shore and completely covered the ocean. We heard water crashing against wood as huge shadows began to form in the mist. Ships as big as buildings began to swim up to the shore. The ships were all white with red strips covering them. Above them held flags with symbols that I didn't recognize. Everyone stood watching in fear as these skyscrapers on water began to come nearer and nearer...this fight would not be won by this resistance, but they would try anyway. Everyone was petrified as we knew that whatever came out of those ships would be our doom...
Then, right as the ships began to dock, I shit you not, these colossal humanoid water golems jumped out of the water and began destroying the ships. They were brownish and orange as if made out of the dirt that makes up the earth. We all knew they were on our side, and as the last of the ships were destroyed by these...things, a huge victorious roar by every one of us began to rock the air. I did not know what we won, but we won nonetheless. Finally it seemed there was hope for us in whatever the fuck was going on in the first place. Then, as the golems are waving at us and smiling, walking up to the shore, the sky lit up in pure white and something above the mist and the clouds dropped huge bombs that decimated the golems and wiped out everyone on the shore. The air was filled with smoke and screaming, body parts flew up onto the cliffs and the resistance was running scattered. The little girl disappeared as well...
While all of this is going on, the cynical old man from earlier walked up to me again and stared at me. All of the noise died down, and although bombs were still going off and people were running screaming, I couldn't hear any of it...the old man opened his mouth and began to speak which was the only thing I was able to hear. He told me that no matter what I think of, no matter what type of hope I try to bring into the dream, it won't stop "him".
I woke up after his words. I still have no idea what the hell that was all about, but it was strange for sure. And now I need something to drink after typing out all of this.
