It’s been my eyes up until now, but I think it’s going to become my cheeks from now on. (laughs) It changed. (laughs)
LOL. It was a regular dream that had zombies unexpectedly lololol.
But it was so realistic that I had trouble differentiating between reality and the dream.↓Details☆
After that, zombies appeared, so we beat them up with a folding chair.
When we went to the roof, the people already up there coldheartedly told us to leave, so I silently stayed in a classroom with my friends.
Whenever we tried to go to the toilet, all the doors ended up locked.
Zombies appeared with a “Gwaaaaa”, so we quickly grabbed folding chairs and beat them up.
Then I woke up.
When I was 1 year and 6 months old, I fell from a triple decker bed and cut my tongue.
Since I was still small, I don’t remember it, but it became a really serious injury

A dream about the starry sky above! If I dream about it again, I will note down what I see!! \﹙∵﹚/
