Gosh it's been a wile since I've been on here, but I'll talk about that later. I had an incredible dream that I wanted to share.
I was a soldier in the German Army even though it seemed American. It was a low-key training day, and me and a few of my buddies were messing around. We were laughing, playing pranks, and enjoying our time off. We were all in uniform, not camo but the pressed button-up jackets. For some reason mine was purple while theirs were green. I wasn't sure why the army was switching to purple, but I could see that the drill Sergeant had one too. I went to run off to the dock and goof off in the water, when I saw the Chinese coming. This was it! They were moving in for a strike! I ran back to tell the others, but I stopped at the school house first where there were a few teachers and tons of children. They were like family to me, and I had to try to save them. I gathered them up and moved them away from the doors and windows, telling them to stay quiet and low to the ground. I was unarmed and in purple so I took of my helmet, hoping that if anyone where to come that they wouldn't recognize me as part of the army. This would maybe prevent them from killing all the children just to kill me. However, it wasn't the Chinese army who came in.
Women with green flowing blankets over their faces came in. We weren't sure who they were, but they started taking the children and women away. They were Chinese women, posing as non-threats, so they could capture civilians. I tried to stop them, but that's when the army came in. I knew I had no chance to save anyone else and little to save myself, so I ran off to a spare room where there were crafts and fabric. I threw off my jacket and threw on a green flowing blanket to try to blend in with the Chinese women. As the army rushed in, I wandered through the building looking for some escape. I found a Chinese garb and adorned it loosely, while still covering my face with the green cloth. A ran into a Chinese man who, thanks to dream 'timey wimey,' had grown to love me and care for me, thinking that I was Chinese. We grew dear and near to each other, and he was always looking out for me. It felt like I had known him for a lifetime even though I only had been trying to escape from the Chinese for only a few days. As I tried to still escape, I had wandered into a medical building where I was recognized immediately as being German. I guess the doctors were smart enough to notice my blonde hair and light complexion. They didn't know who I was, but they now knew that there was a German running around.
I ran. I ran to my man. He had been the only kind of protection and shield to others catching on to me being German. He saw I was upset. I started telling him that I loved him, which was true. Time was moving so fast and so slow. All I knew was that I had to leave but I wanted him with me. Upon hearing my outburst of emotion and love, he asked me to marry him. I knew I would if I could, but I had to leave. How could I say yes when I knew it wouldn't last? He then said we could go to Augusta, a town north of us, 40 hours away to get married. North! That's where the prisoners, my family, had been taken. I agreed while hiding my alternative motives for freedom and for rescuing my family. We departed toward the city and traveled by the worn and weathered bones of a car. I saw the camp where I knew my fellow Germans were being held. I asked him if we could stop for a bit. He stayed in the town while I took a walk. I wandered away, toward the border between the two hostile sides, wondering how I could leave the Chinese safely while entering the German barricade with neither side perceiving me as the other. I made it in. Once inside the German sector, my persona changed. I was no longer fearful. I was strong and mission driven. To save those I loved, I had to find my Sergeant to make a plan.
After learning of the whereabouts of the prisoners from my old Sergeant, I crossed back to the Chinese side and freed my family. I snuck them into a building as I went and found my soon-to-be-husband. I asked him if he wanted to meet my family before we wed. He was delighted and very grateful to hear that they were nearby. As we approached, I could see the children and women in the shadows grow more and more nervous as they saw a Chinese man and a woman in green cloth come close. I took of my cloth and held my husband's hand as I introduced him to the Germans. His face grew heavy with sorrow. He knew then that our marriage wouldn't last during this time of unrest between the two nations. His eyes were filled with tears as he agreed to help us out of the town. They huddled into the back of the vehicle with a dirty cloth draping over them to hide their escape. He stopped just past the border. We held hands, trying to figure out if I could return with him. I told him that he saved my life and I would repay him with mine by returning with him. Streams ran down his cheeks. He told me if I were to be discovered and killed for it that he would have no life worth living. We kissed. I told him, I'd continue fighting for this war to end, and when it did, I would go running back to him.
Then I woke up. Wow.
