Dream from the depths:
My friends and I (3 of us, and I don’t know who the friends were) rented a hotel room to party and they invited this tall, dark man (or maybe he invited himself, I’m not sure how he got there) in to party with us. He was slim and had long, dark wavy hair. Very attractive and charming and…vampire-like. He charmed them while he spoke to me telepathically. I knew what was going on the whole time, but didn’t know what to do about it. I knew I’d have to do it alone because my friends were charmed by him. I was terrified of him. I knew he was a creature of the night, out to do evil. I stayed sober while my friends got wasted. I knew something bad was coming. He drank, but never got drunk. Finally, when my friends were wasted, he changed into the creature I knew he was all along. He said, “I know a whole lot of people in this hotel and I’m going to call them to come in here and we’re gonna do horrific things to you little bitches.” My friends were terrified and panicked and too drunk to think straight and help me out. I picked up a gallon-sized bacardi bottle and started hitting him with it. I knew he could over-power me in a second, but he didn’t. He walked out, unharmed by my blows. He didn’t want to bring any attention to himself YET.
I was outside (by myself or with friends, I don’t know) in front of the hotel and I saw him, but he didn’t see me. He was unloading boxes from his truck and putting them into an 18-wheeler. As I was walking toward the hotel, I could see them everywhere. I knew who they were and I could tell that they knew who I was, although we had never met before. They were watching me all the time without actually watching me. I saw one woman, tall, dark, long wavy hair, looked just like the first one, but female. Then, I saw another “man” who looked the same. They were EVERYWHERE, but these 3 were the main ones. They had this look in their eyes. They were on a mission. They had to get something done and they were on a schedule. They were preparing for something BIG. I went up to this room and knocked. My best friend, Amy, big and pregnate, still, opened the door. Her husband, Jean’, and daughter, Haley, were inside. I was crying and told Amy I needed to talk to her alone. We went into an empty room across the hall and before I could tell her what was going on, in my mind’s eye, I saw 3 more of them walk by the room we were in. I told Amy, “Shhh, they’re right outside the door,” and somehow she understood and she took me serioulsy, but I was hysterical and my breathing was coming out in sharp, hard gasps. They stopped walking and turned, looking directly at our door, whispering in some language I could not understand. Then, also in my mind’s eye, I could see Keith, one of my co-workers at Applebees, in the room across the hall. Somehow, he could see and understand what was going on, too. He was standing directly in front of the closed door in his room and started making similar noises to direct their attention away from Amy and I. They all turned and looked at his door and then walked away.
A friend of ours got Amy, Jean’, Haley, Tambra (my girlfriend) & I new rooms. Tambra wasn’t there yet and I was in our new room alone. I was looking out the window and I knew they already knew where I was. I was terrified.
Jenn, a friend of mine, and I were in the lobby of the hotel and I picked up a flyer from the stack on the counter and it read something like, “Come one, come all, @ the midnight hour,” the following night. It was made to look like it was going to be a convention of some sort. There was a picture of a woman on the front. Obviously an ancient Egyptian Goddess of some sort. She was wearing an Egyptian headpiece (like King Tut’s). I knew she was a vampire. I said to Jenn, “We need to do some research on her.”
I’m hiding in the shadows by a car watching 3 of them talk (whisper) in this unknown language. The same “man” from the beginning is lifting a body off the ground. It’s gray and shriveled, but I knew they had just killed him, but for a cause, a sacrifice of some sort. They were chanting something. He loaded the body in the car. Very suddenly, as if they sensed my presence, they stopped chanting all at once and darted their stares in my direction. Their heads turned at superhuman speed. Their eyes glowed at night like a cats eyes. They looked around in silence for what seemed like an eternity and then went back to chanting. I was feeling a little too brave and turned to sneak off, but I tripped over something and made a bunch of noise and they all heard me and began to chase me, but I was no match for their speed. Nothing human can run that fast. Suddenly, I pushed myself off the ground and started flying. I looked below and the 3 of them stood there looking up at me with hunger and anger in their eyes. I flew until the sun came up and then I came down. The town looked ancient. The buildings were all joined together like the buildings on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. The roads were thin and made of brick. There were brick back alleys. The ground was always damp. Where was I? Who was the woman on the flyer? Anyway, right before I woke up, I said to my protector, “I know what I have to do now. Please watch over me.”
There were no movies or books that I had watched or read to influence this dream. It came out of no where. I’d never had one quite like it before this and haven’t since. I am still not quite sure where it came from or what it meant. I just think it’s very strange that something like this came from my head. I am not a big fan of vampire movies or books, so this isn’t a normal subject for me. Anne Rice was in my head that night!
