I'm putting this here, but it's not alien abduction related, only I can't find another forum to put it in!
Just something I remembered while I was typing up my abduction thread...
I woke up one morning, looked at my clock, it was ten to seven. I had no reason to be getting up before 7am, so I turned over and fell asleep again - during that sleep I had a dream where I was in a field near where we lived, I knew where I was but my vision was 'obscured' like I was wearing blinkers or something - I could only see straight in front of me. I was talking to someone, a man - there were other people there, but I couldn't see them properly. I specifically remember this man as being tall with dark hair and I couldn't make out, but I got the impression at least one of them was a humanoid alien... I was saying "well I don't believe you're from the future, prove it"
The others looked at each other, then one of them fired a laser gun thing at a tree, there were sparks and one of the branches fell off the tree. I had to turn my head to see that happen.
I scoffed, that would be easy to fake, bit of an explosive in the tree, and a remote control trigger thing...
The others looked at each other again, muttered to each other, then the dark haired man said "Okay we'll take you inside"
Next thing I remember was being carried (?) inside a space ship... and I don't remember anything else.
I woke up again feeling very bleary eyed, and turned over to look at the clock - it was now five to seven. I groaned like mad as it felt like I'd been asleep for hours and hours, and man that was a crazy dream!
An aunt and uncle of mine were staying with us at the time (I'd have been in my early 20s), my mother was working at that time, I didn't have a job but did go out every day to an unemployed peoples "club" thing that the government made people who'd been unemployed for more than 6 months go to Monday to Friday 9 to 5. I didn't want to get up so early, so I stayed in bed semi dozing till about twenty past eight. During that time I heard someone downstairs opening the front door and my aunt asking "what's the weather like?" and my uncle replying "it just started raining", I thought that was odd as I could see sunshine out my window, which was above the front door.
I hauled myself out of bed, and went downstairs, I go into the kitchen and my aunt says "ooh you're very late getting up" I thought she was being sarcastic and turned to look at the clock - expecting it to be at around eight thirty. It was at quarter to twelve ...
Wait, what?! I looked at my watch, same thing quarter to twelve, I went into the living room, the clock on the mantle was at quarter to twelve, and the clock on the VCR was 11.46. I was stuttering and stammering, "it's only half eight!!!" I ran upstairs and picked up my clock, sure enough it was at half passed eight. I showed my aunt, she laughed and said I should have wound it last night - but it was battery operated. Maybe I need a new battery? The clock was still ticking, I didn't do anything to the clock and left it as it was all day, that night and all the next day (say 36 hours?) it didn't gain or loose another minute. When I was going to bed, I put it to the right time and it maintained the right time until the battery eventually died ages later (maybe a year or more?).
A few years later I was having my room redecorated, so I was going to sleep in the spare room, I picked up my pillow, quilt and clock and went into the other room. The clock was lying flat on top of the pile of bedding, when I went to put it on the bedside locker, I noticed it had stopped. It started going when I stood it upright. Put it flat, it stops. Stand it up, it goes. I have no idea why it was doing that!!
Anyways... that tall dark haired guy? I've seen him again in dreams several times. I can never make out his face, but he's tall with dark hair. I can't remember the specifics of the dreams but I remember one where I cornered him and demanded to know who he was and why he was following me... I think he said his name was Ryan. Some name with an R and Y in it anyways.
I've never met any real life man who answers his description (and trust me, I've looked!!) and since that dream where I 'caught' him following me, I've not seen him.
