Confused Athenian Group With the Exact Same Dream?

Four young Athenians were found asleep in the woods last night, and were later identified as Helena, Hermia, Demetrius, and Lysander. It has been said that both Hermia and Lysander were in a forbidden love, and had decided to run away to become wed. Apparently, Hermia's father, Egeus, wasn't too fond of the couple, and wanted Demetrius to be Hermia's rightful husband. Thus explaining why the couple ran away into the night. But how did the other two get there? Well, we suspect that Helena knew of the plans of Hermia and Lysander, and told Demetrius of their escape. Why did Helena tell? Sources say she was hopelessly in love with Demetrius, though he hated her, and loved Hermia instead. So as the four ran into the woods, something strange happened. They stated that they felt as if they had dreamt the night away. But what was even stranger was that each recalled the same dream, where each fell in love with the wrong person. Confusion has been said to cloud their memory, but we have to wonder, was it a dream? Either way, it turns out during their journey into the woods, Demetrius fell for Helena, and now both Lysander and Hermia, along with Demetrius and Helena are to be wedded on the wedding day of Theseus and Hippolyta! What a happy ending indeed for the trouble group! Make sure to join the three happy couples on their wedding day! (Information up top!)
