Dream Journal #1
A dream about a mutant deer.
So I know that other peoples dreams arent really exciting to read about, but this dream left me haunted.
So I was walking home, through the slushy snow on my neighborhood streets. I shifted my gaze up, so I could see the rooftop of my house around the corner, and got ready to cross the street. However, when I looked back across the street, there was this.. deer.
At first, it didn't look alive. It seemed like some kind of a taxidermy creation, but it was blinking and breathing. A lot of blinking.
It's eyes had that look to them. The look your cats eyes get in flash photos, like they are shining, and you can see right through them. Not only that, it had these eyes all over its hind legs.
Once I fully had a chance to take it all in, I was still shocked. I slowly crossed the road, tip toe-ing over snow slush. The deer's upper lip had somehow rotted or melted away, exposing its upper teeth. Now, the more detail I describe, the scarier this deer sounds, but it didnt feel scary. It seemed.. nice, calm, and even cute.
The whole thing was so serene. When I finally got to the other side of the road, I laid my hand on the back of her head, and she didn't flinch.
And then, of course, I woke up.
