Dream Interpretation: Hiding behind a Chair
Visitor's Dream: 'I don't remember the first part of my dream, but in the last part the landscape suddenly changed from being a friendly environment to one where I felt threatened and knew I had to get away from someone (not sure if one or more than one person) who was chasing me.
I had a torn piece of paper in my hand with a vertical line on it. Somehow I knew it had the directions on where I needed to go, but I couldn't figure it out. I turned the paper round and round, trying to line up the line on it with a direction, but couldn't find an answer. Then I started running.
I knew I was being chased so I run into what seemed to be an alley with apartments on the left and right. They were very modern and didn't have any walls, only curtains. I looked behind the curtains to try and find a place to hide. When there were people inside, I kept running, getting more and more frightened.
At last I got to an apartment that had a woman and child in it who were packed and ready to leave. I felt relieved, thinking I only had to wait a few seconds for them to be on their way and then I could hide in there. But then the husband came out who was obviously staying and I realised that hiding in there wasn't an option either.
I doubled back and found an empty apartment with a woman sitting on a chair. I ran in and fell down behind the chair, telling the woman someone was chasing me and please, I had to hide. Someone else, who was also running away from the pursuers, ran in too and fell down behind me, so we were both hiding behind the chair. The woman in the chair didn't say anything but I knew she knew we were all in grave danger (herself included, given that we were in her space).
I looked behind me and saw that the other person who was hiding behind the chair with me made a shadow on the floor. Together we were too big to be concealed by the chair, but it was too late to make a move. We were trapped. I felt more than saw the pursuers coming and knew we would be discovered.... and then I woke up.'
