Abandon all hope ye who enter here

* I used to have nightmares when I was very young, of a hall very much like this. I was playing with my brother and a friend at the front. At the end of the hal, we heard footsteps approaching and some other noise. When it came closer, we could see it was a very tall man and a dwarf, who pushed a wheelbarrow. They came closer and closer. I knew we had to run or hide, but it was as if we were paralysed. When they were nearer, the friend and my brother hid in haystacks that were next to us. But I was paralysed with fear. They came and put me in the wheelbarrow and turned around, the long walk back.

I had this dream several times. *
