Dashiell Bad Horse in “Dreamcatcher” by Matt Duarte
A close up of a three piece glass dreamcatcher. On the top one, there's a wolf running among a group of deer. On the second one there is a hunter bringing down an eagle. On the third, there's a hut with a bonfire right in front of it.
CAPTION: I'll be the first to admit, I was never one for all the spiritual shit.
CAPTION: Keeping the bad dreams out? Yeah fucking right.
Description: Dash is laying down on his bed completely naked. He looks comfortable and at peace, with his eyes closed. Hanging out right above it is the same dreamcatcher, on a nail against the wall. The room looks like an absolute mess.
CAPTION: But since I hung this dreamcatcher on the wall, I've slept like a baby.
CAPTION: I can't even remember the last time I rested so peacefully.
Description: A flashback panel, showing Dash in his work clothes. There's a big semi truck, with it's back doors open, and lots of boxes scattered around. Dash is opening one of the boxes and looking inside.
CAPTION: Funny how people get attached to the most random objects. Finding it was pure luck.
CAPTION: Like it was calling out to me.
Description: Flashback panel. Dash is stepping away from the truck, carrying the dreamcatcher. In the background we can see Chief Red Crow shouting at a man (the driver of the truck).
RED CROW: Trying to smuggle stolen material and selling it in our reservation? I can not let that slide.
RED CROW: And you think we want this New Age bullshit in our tribe to begin with?
Description: The same driver from the previous panel, talking with an important looking man (he's the chief of another tribe). He looks displeased, while the driver looks nervous as hell.
DRIVER: Red Crow confiscated everything...
CHIEF: Does he know? Did he find it?
DRIVER: No, I don't think so, Chief.
Next: What a wonderful web we weave.
