There is a glass box in the middle of a desert landscape. I walk towards it. I see people inside. People I know. Eternity, Skan, Mystery (not sure how I know that one..), my best childhood friend, and...one person I didn't know. A teenage boy.
I try to take control of it at this point. It's sluggish at first, trying to get a grip on my own actions. I've been out of practice for a while. Hypnos stopped coming around my dreams for a while after that incident with the tree. It's a lot more difficult than I remember at first, but then I remember how.
I try to break down a wall with a hammer first. I beat the glass again and again, to no avail. I try to shoot it out, but the bullets rebound and I have to stop. I try fire to melt the glass, but no matter how hot it gets, the glass won't budge. It seems like I try these things for hours, until I am too weary to try again.
And then the laughter comes, and I wake up.
The only way out is through the mask.
Leave them out of this Hypnos. Skan, Mystery, that boy... They haven't done a damn thing to you. Your mission is ME. I'M the one you're after. Not them. I swear to god if you so much as try to come anywhere near them for any reason at all, I'll rip your head off.
