Then the dream skips to a trial. Apparently one of the the kids had found and killed the squid. I got the feeling that he did it because he thought the squid was dangerous but that it really wasn't. I don't remember much about that part of the dream except the prosecutor saying "Do you know how rare squids are?"
So yeah, I'm trying to figure out what exactly my unconscious is trying to tell me here. I'm not sure what to make of the metaphorical significance of squids. Maybe it was really just a dream about John Green.
