Legend of DeLis, snippet 10
His first moments of lucidity were clouded and it took him a while to realize that it was Viole who had pulled up a chair at his bedside. When it did dawn on him, he recoiled in spite of himself.
The older man smiled, misunderstanding. "I surprised you," he said.
Alexander lowered his eyes. "Are you here to ask after me?"
"I am here to do that, yes." Viole had leaned forward and his voice took on a conspiratorial tone. "But I am also here to... how to say it? Proposition you."
"You will hold DeLis accountable for his violence against you? Before the public?"

"I do not wish to be caught in this affair."
"You were attacked."
Alexander looked away. "I simply wish it hadn't happened."
Dreamland Writing Prompt
Does anyone else have dreams where they return to a place they've been to before in other dreams, one that shares a name and some other aspects with a real-life place?

Going to the real town is like going home for me; going to the dream town is like returning to someplace familiar as well, but only because it has appeared so often in my dreams that I've felt I've been there many times. I know where things are; the passage of time is logical and coherent; events of past dreams leave impacts on the environment of later dreams (that is, the old bank building burned
