I am with my partner and we are in a service station (I think?) and he can see or smell gas. Suddenly we realise we are in danger and run towards the sliding doors. My partner feels we are done for but I’m optimistic we can make it or at…
Singapore Chainsaw Massacre
I am in Singapore with a good friend Mr. R and Marvin* an ex hookup. We are seated at an outdoor eating joint, ordering food and catching up. I am disappointed when Mr. R has to leave and I am left with Marvin who decides I'll be sleeping at his parent's place with him. I really don't want to be there with him or to continue the night with him.
Suddenly it's the following morning and I find myself at his parent's house and gather my things to leave. I see a dismembered finger, slightly decomposed on the carpeted floor. And then I see Marvin gearing up in a 'Jason' face mask and heavy duty jumpsuit like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
I realise I need to get out of here fast. I'm not sure whether Marvin has realised I have cottoned on to him wanting to murder me as we are both acting 'normal'. I do make a run for it and there are multiple large, wide floor to ceiling doors (red?) that open and close for me in succession as I pass through the hallway. The scene is like something from a Kubrick film.
Marvin is steadily gaining on me, following me through the doors of the house/apt. I make it to the front door which has a brass knob at the centre. I fully expect it to be locked or that I am unable to open it in time, but I manage and am able to escape outdoors.

Dream notes and associations
There seems to be a recurring theme of very suddenly needing to escape a situation and the ability to always find an escape.
Being with friends in Singapore
My feelings throughout the dream and on awakening
I felt happy and elated to be in Singapore and in Mr. R's presence and a strong resistance to be around Marvin. Fear when I realised I was in danger and relief at escape. Anticipation when turning the final knob of the front door.
