He had to cut through the production floor to get to the break room so he could put away his lunchbox. As soon as he scanned his security badge, he opened the door. Then he heard a voice—the same one he heard last nightmare he had.
"Shouldn't you be going?" the voice said.
"Where?" StrangerCoug responded.
"Already? I sure wish time flew that fast, but it unfortunately doesn't."
By that time, StrangerCoug had made it to the door leading out of the production room toward the break room. He was about to hit the button that let him out, but was stopped by the voice.
"Don't push that," she said.
"Why not?" StrangerCoug asked.
"Seriously. Last chance to turn around and go back home. I already called you in."
"I'm supposed to call myself in, not to mention that I'm perfectly fine. Now shut up."
He hit the exit button and opened the door to find a nightmarish monster on the other side. It appeared almost like the fursonas he drew, except it apparently had had a sex change operation and grew another tail. In her hands was some sort of club on fire.
StrangerCoug had become speechless. The nekomata he had come across emitted an evil laugh.
"I told you to turn around," the nekomata said. She was emitting the same voice that was telling him to leave and the same voice that was being tormented in the last dream as most of the Mafia was killed off.
StrangerCoug ran for his life. The production room had a door that led directly outside, and he bolted for it. He went through and jumped over the railing—he worked on the second floor. He was injured in the fall, however, and was no longer able to move.
He look behind him. The nekomata had apparently lost him. As he turned to face forward, a familiar person offered his hand to StrangerCoug to help him get up.
"I'm here," he said.
The friend helped StrangerCoug up. StrangerCoug was barely able to stand, but was nevertheless able to get out of harm's way.
"What happened?" the friend asked.
StrangerCoug was too scared by the turn of events to give a helpful answer.
"I understand your fear. It seems like there's been a lot of trouble in this area lately," the friend said. "The police department said they're trying to take care of it. I don't know if they're stretched thin, whether they really don't know what's going on, or what, but I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel."
"Perhaps we can make one?" StrangerCoug asked.
"We'll see," the friend said.
Can StrangerCoug make it out of trouble in Dreamland again?
