I have lucid dreams like this from time to time, and I love them. In the middle of a dream, I will literally say to whomever the people in the dream/situation are: “ stop right here. I don’t want the dream to do this. Let’s do this over…” It is like I am the dream director, have cried out “Cut!”, and all of us, including me, stop and “re-do ” the scene with different action and different outcomes!
