Jonathan Harker’s Dream
And so it was that I, Jonathan Harker was sleeping in a four poster bed in the castle of Countess Haylee Lynn. As I slept, I had such strange dreams of my Countess!
In the first dream She was in black with a big spiral behind Her. She was saying “You need to focus more on me. You need to focus on me completely. Look at the spiral behind me. Look at how it turns and focuses your mind into the centre of the spiral, where I am. Listen to my sweet voice talking one on one to you. Just put all your attention on me. Nothing else matters Jonathan, just me, my voice and spiral. Relax, let yourself go. Drift down further – deeper and deeper, falling more and more under my sweet spell. Now follow me into my kitchen”.
She led the way, and I followed her through the corridors of the castle, down into the kitchen. She sat me on a chair as she busied herself in the kitchen. She was putting ingredients in a bowl and mixing them together.
“I am making a love potion. The strongest love potion ever made by any human. When I finish with you, you will be deeply in love with me. My whim will be your command. You will be so in love with me you will do anything for me. You are going to fall deeper than you ever have been before. You will be mine.”
She dipped a heart shaped pendant in the bowl, and then bought it out.
“See the heart shape. The symbol of love. The symbol of your love for me. Wear it as a constant reminder of your love for me.”
She put it round my neck.
“Now drink from the bowl. When the first drop reaches your mouth, you will fall deeply in love with me.”
She bought the bowl closer to my lips. I took it from her and started drinking. “Drink deeply” she said to me. I drank, deeper and deeper, until the last drop was gone. I put the bowl down and realized how much I was in love with the Countess. I realized how wonderful, how perfect she was.
In the next dream She was standing in front of me with a pendant swinging back and forth. She wore black gloves. I was about to speak, but She raised a finger to her mouth to indicate to me to be silent. Behind Her was a series of concentric circles which seem to draw my eyes more onto her.
“Pendants are very useful things aren’t they Jonathan? Without this simple little device, clocks would not work. Fascinating isn’t it how they swing back and forth, back and forth. Watch the pretty gold pendant. Listen to the sound of my voice and the watch the pendant. Isn’t it so relaxing? Don’t you like the way it swings? Just watch it more and more. Let it relax you. Let my voice relax you. Breathe deeply for me. Breathe deeply in on one swing of the pendant and then out on the next swing. That’s right, you are doing so well. You are breathing in time to the pendant. Notice how relaxing it is. Fall into the rhythm of the pendant. Feel how sleepy it is making you. All you want to do is watch the pendant, listen to my voice and sleep. Let your mind go blank. Empty your mind of all your thoughts….”
At that point the alarm went. It took me a while to come to. It would soon be time for breakfast. I was confused. What did these strange dreams mean?
