I was on a senior trip right before graduation. A friend and I were on a canoe and we got lost. We did however survive and get back to town a day later. Unfortunately, the town had already given up on finding us and said that we had gotten eaten by alligators. To make it worse, they didn’t believe it was us so we were basically like strangers. We didn’t get our diplomas and basically had nowhere to go because no one believed that we were still alive.
This doesn’t seem as scary now that I’m awake, but it definitely felt scary in the dream. Not to mention that it involved alligators which is sort of a recurring theme in my dreams.
