Time of Day: Morning, approximately 09:15
Environmental Setting: Jungle
I woke to find myself lying on the jungle floor, looking up into the trees. The first thing I saw was a parachute caught in the branches, which led me to assume I had been airdropped here.
I tried to get myself on my feet, but the transition from the waking world to the Dream Universe left me temporarily paralyzed, as usual. Shortly after, I heard the sound of footsteps approaching, and was soon pulled off the ground by a strong arm.
Once I was back on my feet, I found myself face to face with Sarah Ahab, the girl I met in my last dream and the daughter of one of my superiors. Though, she wasn't really herself; her body was possessed by Nightmare Moon's spirit, as I was so told last time.

There were blooming crepe myrtles and rose-of-sharons, and as I grew closer to my destination, neatly trimmed gardens with neatly trimmed bushes.

At the end of the road sat a collection of grayish buildings and a number of signs directing me to the appropriate parking lot. "Welcome to Ten Creeks Hospital," said one of them. "Please enjoy your stay." I parked in the visitor's lot. Surely I wouldn't be staying.
