Published 6th May 2010 by

Last night I had a very vivid dream, probably one of the most vivid dreams I have ever had. Not only was it vivid, but I have total recall of it.

I was travelling down a road I know well on an unknown method of transport. I think it may have been a bicycle but I'm not sure. I never saw it in the dream. Anyway, something makes me have to pull over so I take a left turn into what I know in the dream is a dogging area. It's summer and it's early in the afternoon, the sun is high and shining and there are hardly any clouds in the sky. There is nobody else around so I see little danger here.

As I enter the area it has a walled building, like a house, but has no roof and is about 8 ft tall. There is a entrance nearest to the road. The "room" measures approximately 3m by 5m. It may have been a car garage at some point in the past, but the wall is now crumbling and weathered.

I enter through the entrance and sit down against the wall so that the door is to my right. I open up my back pack and start looking inside then I start to tie my shoe laces. As I am doing this a white van pulls up adjacent to the door. The van has no front door on the drivers side and it is being driven by a little boy, about 7 or 8 years old, blonde and wearing a red football shirt.

I go back to doing up my laces when a man appears at the entrance. He's asking me for money - £20. When I tell him I don't have any he pulls a gun on me. Again, I tell him that I don't have any money on me. He fires a shot into the air and demands £20. I rummage around in my bag again, looking for my wallet, but can't find it. I tell him again that I don't have any money but all I have got is a rubber suspension bush. With this he fires the gun at me.

My right ear is ringing and I'm a little deaf due to the noise, I can feel heat on the side of my head like when you open the oven door and get a rush of hot air. I look at him thinking "it's only firing blanks" and throw the rubber bush at him saying "you b*****d". He just stands there smiling at me. I put my hand up to touch my ear and there is blood on it. With that I can then feel blood running down my neck, shoulders and down my back.

At that point I woke up with a bit of a start.
