At a big swimming pool facility. Sort of floating around the room in mid-air trying to avoid the grasp of a hostile apparition. Up near the ledge of a window is a miniature city. Once you enter you shrink to their size. I go inside for safety. It's a whole new world now. For some reason I have an ankle bracelet on, some kind of locator and a bracelet on my wrist. I try to keep it hidden behind my socks and sleeves cause if I'm found they could throw me out. Running around neighborhood to neighborhood late at night. I develop an awkward relationship with the ringleader of a gang that seeks people like me out. It's hard to tell if he knows who I am and is just playing along to catch me at the right moment. A different gang discovers my existence. I try to seek help from my ringleader friend. He's playing some arcade game when I ask.
Me: "Hey. I really need your help. They're coming to get me!"
Later on, I find myself hiding atop a building. The gang is kicking and chopping at the building and make it tilt over. As it's falling I toss my locator bracelets into the woods nearby. As soon as I hit the ground it's game over. I wake up.

In my bedroom I discover an ant trail leading from the electrical socket near my window onto my desk and around my golden pothos plant. Every year I battle these buggers in different parts of the house. All it takes is caulking the cracks around the socket and wiping down the desk.
