I once had a dream about a girl. A girl from another dream, one who seemed so close to me when we were so far. I saw her again. She was playing a guitar on a set of stairs, her face contorted into that of concentration. I called for her and she gladly put her instrument aside to listen to me. I told her my feelings as of late. The feelings of deep remorse and of yearning for things I wasn't currently aware of. And I informed her of my most recent dreams, to which she listened especially close.
After my what seemed like never-ending ranting, she then told me her outlook on my emotions. She told me I was afraid. She said that I was terrified of the moments that were soon to come, and that my brain was trying to find release from the fear through more happier dreams rather than harsh nightmares. She said that something dire was going to happen, and that my mind was aware of it, but I wasn't.
I asked what I could do to overpower the fear, and she told me to counter it with more fear. More specifically, mental fear. She led me down a path that was lined with flowers and gentle creatures, the entire area seeming to be placed in an aviary as there were many beautiful birds soaring through the air. At the end of the path, there was a large pool. There was a multitude of different koi swimming in the dark water, but I couldn't see through to the bottom. It almost seemed endless, like I was staring into an abyss.
She kneeled down by the pool and gestured for me to do the same. Once I was positioned comfortably, she vocally questioned if I was ready. Before I could question her, she shoved me down into the pool. As if I was correct, the pool was endless and I began to panic as I lost sight of the light from above. The water was freezing, and it almost seemed to scratch and stab at my skin. It weighed me down and eventually stopped all movement from me. It hurt too much. I was too cold. I was ready for it to end. What did people say it felt like to freeze? That it would eventually feel warm and comforting? And for as much as I wanted for it to end, I was still terrified. So I guess that took away from the comforting part.
But before I could accept my fate, I heard her. She told me to relax, and that even though I was scared, I needed to look at this from another angle. I did as I was told and I found that the abyss wasn't as fearful as I was making it out to be. When I was panicking, everything was loud and moving too fast for me to focus. But when I took a moment to examine my surroundings, it was on the border of peaceful. She said that I needed to relax, so I let my tightened muscles loosen, and the endorphins running through my veins settle. I found that the more I relaxed, the more light started to peek through the inky black of the water. After some time, the water not only looked bright and peaceful, but dare I say beautiful. I almost didn't want to leave.
But as soon as I began to enjoy the feeling of the water surrounding my body, she called for me to come back. For as much as I didn't want to leave, I knew I had to. I slowly made my way towards the light, and soon, to her. She looked like a proud mother as I coughed up whatever bits of the liquid I had managed to breath in.
When I was finally perched back on the path that bordered the very edge of the pool, she told me I was ready. She said that beacuse I was able to face my fear of drowning so easily, that I would be able to face the fear of whatever misfortune was coming to me.
We sat in comfortable silence, and ehen I felt that the time for me to depart was growing near, I asked her a question that had been bothering me for the duration of the dream.
"How did you know something bad was going to happen?"
That was the last text he had sent me before he died. He was found dead face down in a pool a few blocks away from his own house a few days ago. I showed this to the police and they thanked me for the useful information. He never talked to any girls. He said that he wasn't interested in girls and as I far as I knew, I was his only friend. That he spoke of at least.
I put this here beacuse I want to know who this girl is and why she killed my friend. If any of you have any information that could help, please tell me. Please. I don't want this to happen to anyone else.
I'll make sure to give you guys updates on anything that happens. Thank you.
