I was driving home from work and remembered a dream I had in the past week or or so.

“It was in my childhood home, except in now took on a new decrepit dimension, was connected with the outside and was like 10 extra stories tall. I was exploring and saw a deer run through a room and up a flight of stairs. I went to investigate and around the corner were two more deer, even closer. I slowly approached but in the standard dreamy haze one of these deer took on almost human qualities, until I said “hi,” in a shaken sort of way, not knowing if I was addressing a deer or a human. The deer immediately assumed a human female form, a sort of deer girl, and said “oh hi! Didn’t mean to startle you. I’ve been watching this place, looking after these deer.”
