Are you gonna wait for a sign, your miracle, stand up and fight
There is a large clear area of ground in a wood where two large armies of medieval miniature war gaming soldiers have been set up for battle. I and a few other guys, faceless, stock characters I don't know in real life, are about to play a miniatures battle. Veronica, a lady I knew in junior high school and high school and the object of a youthful crush, is there and asks to join us. When we agree to let her play, she walks over to the miniatures and begins rearranging them and moving them around while I and the others continue to discuss the rules of engagement and conditions. Eventually, she finishes with the figures and walks over to join the conversation. After a moment, I step away from the discussion and walk over to the miniatures. All the swords, pikes, maces and flails on the figures have been turned into musical instruments and all the figures are dressed in uniforms like Sgt. Pepper's Band. I'm surprised by this turn of events and amused. Veronica wanders back over to where I am standing and I tell her, "That was a clever trick."
"I thought that you would find it funny," she smiles mischievously. We embrace. She's wearing some sort of black velvet clothing and I can feel it under my hands.
At that point I wake up. Shannon is running water in the bathroom.
