  2. Earlier today in my dream i was slicing a big and clean onion perfectly just like a professional chef, and in the dream it was like i was watching a movie but the movie appeared so real,as if was happening. I was feeling the pain of the person, the voice of the person was my voice, the challenges the person was passing through was like am the one but the person’s faces was not my face. As i kept slicing the beautiful onion i was watching the other person like in my eyes there is a television that was more real than any television or movie ever made by man.The movie i was watching was about boy who was being maltreated by his madams because of several fault accusations layed on him by the guest,the guest who was really close to his madam manipulates his madam to hate but he struggled till he had proved to reveal to his madam who her guest truly is and after many fights,challenges and more torture from his madam he was to vindicate himself by revealing the truth to his madam, but his madam did not give her the due punishment that she deserve for taking him true hell so was not pleased and were i sat diligently slicing the onion i was not pleased bcos his madam didn’t punish the guest as she should,so i was mobbled as he mobbled and it was as if we were mobbling same words simultaneously then my sister told me to be fast with the onion,still in the dream then i woke up while cutting the last slice of the onion. My mood in the dream was a happy mood but wasn’t contented with the punishment that was given to the wicked guest. I feel she deserve more punishment.
