It never happened to me before, but I felt someone hold me after some dream I had. It also never happened before that I meet someone in a dream, who doesn't relate to anyone I've met in real life. I was certain he was the one holding, placing a hand on my side, and so I wasn't afraid when I felt it. I'm sure it was that person, in a way that I wouldn't be able to deny it without denying I had felt someone holding me this morning, and I did.
In the dream, there were authorities wanting to kill the people of my kind, and I ran away, wanting to stay alive, and they sent a few people to go after runaways. He was able to catch up with me and with little confidence but much will to survive, I convinced him not to kill me, but it was more not to have him do something that isn't his will, but an order. He finally saw I was right and did not kill me and we both escaped together.
Throughout the dream, I was getting to know him and realizing things about him that affected the way I dealt with him. It didn't happen with anyone in a dream before. I felt like myself in the dream, and was all the while following what I believe in with no fear, like when I convinced him not to kill me, or when I escaped because I wanted to live, or when I wanted to protect my family and animals and knew what was to be done.
Then I woke up and then a second later, I felt someone holding me with one hand against my side. What does this mean? Is this a precaution (a few days earlier I had a dream come true) and who was that person?
