A dream or nightmare, are creatures extracted malevolently from dreaming beings (mainly humans) and resemble the Eurasian blue tit. The creatures' only desire is to return to a body by plunging its beak into said body, and once that happens the dream or nightmare will cease to be and the being will fall into an unconscious state to experience the dream/nightmare. Alongside this ability, if one is to stare into the eyes of a dream/nightmare they will become drowsy and struggle to stay awake, quickly falling into a dreaming state. To extract a dream you must have skin, or equivalent, to skin with the extractor and dreamer, and it would appear as if the extractor is pulling the bird out of the dreamer's intact skin to someone watching.
Bearing the skin to skin contact in mind how does one extract the dream without touching its beak or looking into its eyes and rendering the extraction pointless?
