Different From The Dream

A girl dreamt she was being chased by a stranger. The girl ran and ran, shouting for help, but soon she was caught and knifed to death. She woke up screaming.

One day she was strolling in a park, when she spotted a man walking towards her. To her shock, he looked exactly like the man who murdered her in her dream. She panicked and ran straight to a nearby telephone box to call her friend, thinking she could get help. The man, while she was still on the phone, walked right past her. The girl, relieved, got out of the telephone box and started walking again. But she was astonished to find that once again the same man was coming towards her. Her heart was beating hard and her hands turned clammy with cold sweat. She was aware that this time she had nowhere to hide. She looked down and tried to walk quickly past him. And then, just as they passed each other, the girl heard the man mutter under his breath; “Why the hell is it different from the dream?”

The man had the same dream as the girl. But the girl was doing things differently than what she draemed of, and he was like "Why is it different..." Because the dream he just killed her simply and she didnt do all the movements to get away and stuff.

I think in the man`s dream, it was the girl who killed him and not the other way around, or else he would have killed her... but then his reaction is still weird... ??

I think he had a dream that they would get together and him walking by would get her to ask him out :D

I think that the man is trying to kill her like how he did in the dream, but she moves around (actions she didn't do in the dream).

The thought that they both had the same dream is already creepy.

Okay, so the girl had a dream of her demise and the man had a dream showing him killing this girl. So he thought he should listen to the dream and kill her, but when she didn't run away crazily like she was supposed to, like in the dream the first time he thought: maybe next time. Then she just walked past him and that's why he was wondering why it was so different.
at least that's what i get.

Not that i'm saying that i believe in the dream but there is a school of thought that if you meditate in a certain way or change your dreams in a certain way you can change reality. I have no idea what the man was trying to accomplish but it he could have actively sent the dream to her.

This is a modern-classic ghost story in Japan that I think saw some brief popularity in the early 90's.

There's a similar story that was aired on a supernatural Japanese TV program: A babysitter is hired to take care of this young boy for the night. She falls asleep and has a dream about something breaking into the apartment and - presumably - killing her and the kid. When she wakes up, she immediately locks the front door. She hears something come up the stairs and bang on the door, but the lock keeps him outside. He says "This isn't like in the dream."

It might have something to do with the Japanese believing ghosts exist in dreams just as they do in the real world and fluctuate between the two. The 'murderer' in the story wasn't a real person, but a ghost who couldn't comprehend why things weren't playing out the same way on both planes.
