At this time I noticed my cat wasn't with me, and I started to scream at my dad to turn around, because I was sure she was hurt, if not dead, from the wreck. My dad refused, because he was afraid the police would "catch him." I told them if they didn't turn around I was going to jump out. They seemed to think I was just being dramatic, but even though I was terrified I'd break my leg or something, I yelled goodbye and jumped from the vehicle. I scraped up my legs horribly, but was otherwise unhurt, and started running back to the scene of the wreck. I was crying the whole time, thinking my cat was probably dead or dying, and that I had to be there for her at the end, at least. Then, as I was approaching the scene, I saw an officer with a leash, and at the end of the leash was my cat, terrified, but unhurt. Here I just started sprinting through snow, and couldn't stop repeating, "ohmygodohmygodohmygod..." and she saw me and I collapsed in the snow and she jumped up into my arms and I was sobbing and police were gathering around and then I woke up. And my cat was curled up all warm and safe on my legs and I felt like my heart would explode.
I don't know. I don't usually have dreams that affect me this way, probably because most of the time, I'm always aware that I am dreaming, and I exert subtle control over what is happening without even thinking about it. And the intensity of this one...I'm still a little shaken, admittedly. My cat was confused, I'm sure, because I held her and pet her for a really long time before getting out of bed. Not that she minded, of course.
ANYWAY enough of that. I stole this meme from ulqui because it is awesome:
