Today he admitted to me that since he was very young he was plagued by strange nightmares of stick men with scythes for hands. The nightmares stopped after a few years. But then, when, as he stated, "bad things" started to happen around him, these men would again appear. He related one specific incident where he was eating lunch with a playmate at school, and the men appeared. Next thing he new his playmate was knocked unconscious from a blow to the back of the head by a lunch tray. I asked him if he new anything about escape mechanisms.
