I had a nightmare last night. I was with Mary - I think it was Mary - and she was a small person, very young. Her dad came along and injected her with something that would kill her. Then he left, was coming back to finish the job. I think I was somehow incapacitated or he thought I was unaware. I tried to get myself together, hid the instrument he would need to finish the job, then got Mary to go outside, through some kind of curtain. I was headed for my car, to pick her up and bring her to the hospital, when he returned. He was doing some adjusting or something and I was watching for my chance from my car. I knew Mary was lying outside the house, either unconscious or already dead.

Horrible feeling, of course.
