2 Nightmares

My first night in Kansai, I had a really bad nightmare, and I know what set it off.
I had been talking about lucid dreaming with Gabe and Kevin. Kevin swears it can’t be done, and Gabe says he takes vitamin supplements that enhance it.
Anyway, so either during my nap or the first night there, I had this dream that I killed someone — I think my friend Seth, but I can’t be sure. He was a part of it somehow, and I did horrible things to cover it up. I also did them horribly, and I was on the verge of being caught. Suddenly, I was half lucid dreaming, half channeling the movie “Butterfly Effect.” I was like, “Wait, I’ll just go back to a point in the dream where I never killed anyone, and it will be okay!”
But, like Ashton Kutcher in Butterfly Effect, every attempt at going back and changing the inevitable future caused me to still kill the person and end up worse off than before. Kevin was in the dream too, telling me I shouldn’t have messed with fate. Bastards.
Then LAST night, I had ANOTHER dream about killing someone. And the only thing on my mind was that I wanted to stay in Japan. So I got a fake name and tried to travel around the countryside, avoiding the law. My friends all had to help me out, slipping me food and providing me with lodgings and shelter along my journey. I didn’t feel bad for killing whoever I killed, and everyone was on my side. Maybe they understood. Maybe I did everyone a favor.
Sheesh. Give me back dreams about kicking zombie ass any day. I only kill bad guys!
