Over the span of several days.
I was in North Carolina in my cousins’ old house. The siblings were really excited and Mm was mostly so. She exclaimed to me that she and her siblings had taken control of the home and fixed it so that it was more comfortable and less negative. Indeed, it was different, but also much much larger than I remember. In one of the cathedral hallways, she had lots of kids toys like costumes. I donned one of the dinosaur ones and we ran around chasing each other. Then I ended up walking around the outdoor, covered walkway/balcony. It was dark out with clear skies. I felt sad. That’s where my cousin found me and then suddenly I was at a gas station getting gas. The station was crazy huge with more pumps than I’ve ever seen in one station before. It was all in a line wrapping around the building, but it wasn’t too busy at the time. We parked towards the end near the carwash.
Then I drove to a place where I was supposed to be spying on my mark. I was early and it made me nervous since I’d be conspicuous, but suddenly a lot of cars pulled in and it was okay. I got out and approached the outdoor conference area under one of those vinyl tents you commonly see at weddings. I took my seat around the large table, going over in my head my name and what my area of expertise at my university was. My mark showed up and it began.
Then I was at home and Gable had gotten to the point where he was fully incontinent. I knew the time was coming. The pee smell was very powerful and he looked mournful though he couldn’t help himself. So I jumped into the car with my mom, discussing which type of diaper to get him. A belly band with bladder leakage product, or an actual doggie diaper. I choose one and try to put it on him, but I never get to see the whole thing.
Now I’m at this run down apartment building. It’s really, really run-down and I’m confused as to how my life has changed for the worse that we have to live here. It’s only a few day’s rent to get us to the next place. I promised my mom in the grungy room that if she came with me, we wouldn’t have to do this. However, she’d paid for the few days already, so we’d stay since she couldn’t get a refund. I bade her stay in the house and went out to look for groceries and other foods. It was late afternoon at this point. Peeling paint, rust, cracked and broken concrete steps, and lots of lounging, suspicious people. I kept telling myself they’re just people who can’t afford to live in a nice apartment or detached home, down on their luck and that they’re not inherently dangerous, but I was on high alert. They all stared at me and my out-of-place nice clothing and teeth. Just then, something happened and I chased two perpetrators out of a wood-choked metal fence. Stuff happened and then it was dark.
I chased them over to a park in a city. There was a celebration or festival going on and it was filled with characters from old TV shows in the 90s. I was walking around taking everything in. Suddenly, I’m at work, a small office in that city, and my doctor is doing an exam for a child I had seen or was about to see. Something bad was happening in regards to the kids’ teeth, so she finished the exam to let me finish up while she talked to the parents. I left and ended up back at the festival, but this time, I was with the kids from the Loud House. Luan was cracking some jokes and I decided to go with her onto a large yacht. She had done something she shouldn’t have done for the sake of a prank, so her siblings were trying to find her. Some confusing action occurred and I ended up in the thick of it all, the cartoon characters no longer cartoon, but realistic. Somehow I was just as responsible as Luan for her antics. The siblings caught up to me on the side of the boat, demanding answers.
