The Madrol Empire Part 4
Leeana found herself in a swimming pool full of paper money: “I’m rich beyond my wildest dreams!” She stood up, currency tickled her skin as they fell. Then she realized: “I’m completely naked!” She ran through the courtyard trying to cover up as the landscapers laughed and pointed. A group of commoners also laughed. Leeana ran to the door to the castle and opened it. She looked up as a huge pile of money fell on top of her. She woke up.
Still in bed Leeana called for her servant who came running over. “Yes malady.”
“I just had a rather disturbing dream, bring to me the royal psychologist, hurry.” Leeana waited in bed as Dr. Harrington entered the room. “Hello malady, what seems to be the trouble?”
“I dreamt I was swimming in a pool of money then when I got up I was completely naked surrounded by slack jawed gawkers. I tried to get into the castle but a wave of money came over me. Then, I awoke.” Leeana told the doctor as she trembled.
“Nothing to be worried about, dreams of nude situations are common. Maybe you feel like you’re caught off guard, you’re exposed and everyone knows.” The doctor suggested.
“Hmm, that doesn’t seem like me. Maybe there’s something more..” Leeana pondered.
“Well, how about this, you feel ashamed about something, represented by your nakedness and you feel like you must seek revenge, represented by the paper money. Either that or someone will take revenge out on you.” Suggested the doctor. “Do you feel like that’s accurate, does that make sense?” Asked the doctor.
“Um, no not entirely.” Said Leeana. She knew exactly what the doctor was talking about, but she wished to not reveal it. “You can leave now. Thank you doctor.”
“But we can discuss it some more if you would like, maybe make some sense out of it.”
“No, you’ve done enough, thank you.” Said Leeana.
She watched as the doctor made it to the bedroom door, he looked back briefly then left. She thought to herself, hopefully he doesn’t put the pieces together. I’m so stupid, why did I go to him for help? I should have figured out what it meant on my own, I’m smart, I have an analytical mind. I should be safe but just in case….
Leeana called for her private detective: “bring me Shaduk at once,” she said as she got out of bed. Her dress for the day was brought to her. She put it on and exited the bedroom to make herself comfortable in the office. She sat behind her desk as Shaduk knocked on the door.
“Malady, you called for me?”
“Yes, come in. I want you to keep an eye on Dr. Harrington. Follow him closely and report back to me immediately. I want to know everywhere he goes and with whom he converses. Make this your highest priority.”
“Trail the psychologist? Are you sure you want me to do that? I feel as though you’ll be disappointed and, if I may say, quite bored with my report.” Said Shaduk.
“You work for me, and this is what I want. Now go!” Leeana nearly shouted. The detective quickly left the office.
