This one was a weird one. I was with some people in a large building complex. I couldn't tell if it was for condos or if it was a hotel. It was huge, painted white, and near to the sea. I remember being with two of my old roommates, and one girl who was my best friend in grade school. We drifted apart. There was also one other girl there who was a friend of my old grade school friend.
I was speaking with my old roommates when I noticed that their cat just had kittens. But like, JUST had kittens. I remarked, did you know your cat was pregnant? She was just a kitten herself.
They were surprised, and I set about finding a more comfortable and appropriate place for them to rest in. As I was fussing about trying to find a box and some blankets, the girl that was with my old grade school friend scooped up the kittens and took them into the bath with her. She immersed them all in water. I didn't know this was happenning, and when I came back with the box, I freaked out, like WHERE"S THE KITTENS?!
The boys didn't know.
I ran into the bathroom and figured out that she was trying to drown them. I jumped in the bath and got them all out. Luckily they were still alive. I set about making sure they were all okay, while basically screaming at her that she was such a terrible person. I told her to get out of the bath, dress herself, and come out to the living room so that we could discuss the situation.
I was furious at everyone. At the boys for not noticing. At my old friend for being friends with such a sick person, and at that girl for doing what she did. I told them, while I waited for the other girl to come out.
The kittens were growing fast. She never came out. I remember thinking that I hoped she had drowned herself in that bathtub. I went to speak with my old friend, and before I could, I looked out of her window and saw that her view was obstructed by a factory, and a shipping dock. I remarked that it was a shame to have a view like that, so close to the sea. She never spoke a word the whole dream long.
Later, I decided to leave, and go down to the lobby. I took one of the kittens with me. He was cuddled up in my neck, now about 8 weeks old. There was some kind of performance going on in the lobby, and there was a painted elephant being ridden. Its handler wasn't abusing it, as far as I could see. The elephant got spooked and threw off the woman riding it. It began to run. People were screaming. I ran after it, thinking that I could calm it down. that if I showed it how well the kitten was sleeping and calm, that it would understand me. I found the elephant backed into a corner, but like totally smashed in a corner as little as it could possibly make itself. Its eyes were totally terrified. I put my hand on his forehead and was just beginning to communicate, when the handlers ran in with guns. I turned and wondered for a second if they were going to kill the elephant or tranquilize it. I felt this surge of protectress warrior energy flame up through my spine, and I opened my mouth to pull apart the reality we were all in somehow.
But I woke up.
