It started off as a typical dream. I was vacationing in pre-industrial Hawaii, as I often do in dreams, and I found out that I was supposed to go to a wedding. I was annoyed because I didn’t have anything to wear, but I made my way to town anyway to find something.
When I got to town though, I noticed a cloud of dust rising in the distance.
And then I knew, in the way that you only know in dreams, that the Riders were coming and they would kill anyone who wasn’t inside a store when they stormed into town.
I was now paralyzed with fear. Literally. My legs stopped working. Why do your legs always stop working in dreams? Anyway, the Riders were getting closer, so I had to drag myself into the nearest store.
I was down to the last crucial second when I finally reached the store and slammed the door. I thought I was safe, but I wasn’t.
Luckily though, I woke up. Some dreams are just too terrifying to finish.
