The opening of the spring. There were hundreds of people there in costumes and masks with distorted faces, pointed noses and feathers. It started as a breakfast. I was a bit nervous about my performance as a farmer so i was scrambling around. It was almost 7. i ran outside just in time and it seemed to my surprise that there was some kind of parade starting. I saw -*- sitting at a patio and there were so many colors and decorations around her. She was eating a sandwich and smiling. I asked her what she would have me do and she told me to just enjoy the parade. It's only the first day. I turn around to see a woman in a dark hooded robe. I said something about the parade... "it's really something, isn't it?" and she says "yes. Beautiful." or some kind of reply. We walk down the side of the deck a bit further and i catch a glimpse of her face. And it's *-*. my face explodes with excitement and she pulls her hood off as if she knew all along and was just playing a joke on me. We grab each other and hug so hard and so deeply. It became suddenly apparent that there were two parts to each of us. We each appeared twice...there was me, and a me standing next to me and a *-* and a *-* standing next to her. I grabbed us all together, all parts of me and all parts of her. After it ended, our attention was redirected back to the parade. I was preoccupied with all the work in the fields and i wanted my camera. I told her i'd be right back and ran upstairs to fetch it. i passed a door with a luminescent electronic sign on it with strange images of his face and symbols. The door was cracked so i peeked in. ^#^he was watching sitcoms on his computer while he should have been working. We had met before but in my current waking state, i can't place him. We talked for a minute and he was very nice but there was something haunting about his character. He seemed dark... like a devil. Still, i wasn't intimidated. He didn't seem interested in me at all. I went back out of his office and continued down hall. I thought to myself about asking him to make a deal with me, in all my fear of the fear of not being able to ---, but then i laughed and realized how silly it would be. i knew i didn't need a spell. I just needed.
