I am standing in a long, long hallway/tunnel. The floor was tiled in cheap linoleum, the kind industrial offices often put in warehouses. It was so polished and shiny that It reflected the light off from the ceiling. The walls on either side, as well as the ceiling above, are made from huge cement blocks, painted in a light bright gyellow. Above, was the electrified hum of a hundred fluorescent bulbs that sounded like it had already hummed for many a day.
The silence was eerie and complete.
There was no one near me.
I looked down the hallway in one direction, as far as the eye could see, and all that could be seen, is more electrified hallway. No end could be seen.
I then turned to the other end, and all I could see, was a tiny speck of black far off in the distance, like an insect. Everything else looked just as the opposite side of the hallway. Endless.
Then I realized where I must be; I was at the base of some kind of dam, just like the one me and the boys had toured for a field trip all those years ago.
I wondered why I was just left standing there, and figured that someone had been sent there to come and get me. These tunnels were notoriously long, and they usually used motorized golf carts to travail back and forth in them. There was probably one on its way to pick me up. So I sat down and waited.
As I waited, I noticed that the black speck off in the distance was growing larger.
Then I realized, that it was no insect at all, but walked like a human, and it was coming towards me.
Then my vision cleared again, and I could see that it was a demon wearing a black cape.
I began to panic, and tried to look for a place to hide, but there was none.
As it got closer, I could feel the death that radiated outwards from it. I thought to cower to one side as it passed me, hoping it would not notice me, but then realized how foolish that thought was, for in the next instant it was upon me.
Compared to this demon, I was but the size of an ant, scurrying around in circles before him. This demon was beyond huge, beyond even the nephilim of old.
It passed me by without even a glance in my direction.
But I did see its face. It was a grim reaper, like the ones that brought death to those it visited. Its face was only bleached bones, and its eyes were hollowed out pools of black ink.
I could not tell if there was any other color to its face, for it hurt to look upon it, and I was already shaking like a leaf, so great was my fear in seeing such a creature come towards me.
To this demon I was of no consequence. I simply did not matter at all. It knew I could not touch it.
And it knew its purpose.
I knew it then, too.
The Lord Himself, was somehow protecting me from this hideous demon, as it passed over me. I got down onto my hands and knees and thanked Him profusely!
I sensed that once this demon reached the other side, the dam would fall and many people would die.
I was immobilized from the shock of it all,
Realizing just how many people would die from such a dam breaking, but I could do nothing.
I watched the demon fade off into the distance into the size of a small dot at the end of a sentence.
When I could no longer see even that, I woke up, suddenly gasping for air.
