Dream On

I usually like sleeping. After a hard day it’s nice to go to bed and let it all go, especially after a relaxing bubble bath. But I’ve found that when I’m stressed, I can’t even get away from it in my sleep. We’ve all had those dreams where we fall off a cliff, or someone’s chasing us and we can’t run…at all, or we go to school or work, and realize we forgot to get dressed and we’re standing there in our undies, or worse, naked!

So, after Uncle Joey told me we were taking a little trip to Las Vegas for a couple of nights, you can imagine the stress levels going through me. It was supposed to be for fun, and he was hoping I could win some money playing poker. Reading minds comes in handy for that, and I’d already proven I knew how to play the game…as long as I had my cheat sheet handy. There is also someone there he has dealings with. What kind, I don’t know for sure…but I have a pretty good guess. He needs to meet with them and that means I need to be there for that too.

We’re leaving this morning. As you can imagine, I’m a little nervous, and I was plagued by all sorts of dreams last night, but the weirdest came just before my alarm went off. I dreamed I was going on a cruise. It was to the Caribbean, and was supposed to be really fun with sandy beaches and blue, pristine waters. I was looking forward to it…a lot. Then came the day to leave, and I was at the dock ready to board. The excitement rushing through me turned to shock as I discovered that my cruise ship was actually a submarine!

As they forced me toward the plank, I told them I didn’t want to go on a cruise in a submarine. There must be some mistake and I wanted my money back…and they couldn’t make me go. But did anyone listen to me? Nope. They told me I’d get to do all sorts of fun things. Like put on one of those suits and walk along the top of the submarine. Seriously? That was supposed to be fun? I woke up right after they pushed me inside and closed the lid.

I think my subconscious is trying to tell me something, don’t you? Maybe going to Las Vegas sounds like fun, but with my luck, who knows what could happen? Still, dreams are always the worst case scenario, right? And whoever heard of a cruise on a submarine, that’s just nuts!

Uh oh, the limo just pulled up. I suddenly feel exactly how I did in my dream when they closed the lid to the submarine. Maybe I really do get premonitions. Here comes Ramos, I guess I can’t get out of it now, so wish me luck… and I really hope I get to talk to you again soon.

    I know what you are talking about. It is like screaming in your dreams and there is no voice coming out and no one can hear you. I am so excited about this book, don´t let us wait to long!

    I am eager for the new book, but I’m scared Shelby will leave her loving husband and kids for a more exciting Ramos. I worry. 😦 Oh, I just love Dimples to death! I hope he is somewhere in the next book. 🙂


    • Ramos is definitely the kind of guy women fall for… but probably shouldn’t.. if you know what I mean.. but how could I ever leave my wonderful husband, especially now that he’s more supportive than ever. (Poor guy is a saint when you consider what I put him through – lol).

    I hate those kinds of dreams! I can’t wait to read Devious Minds! I’m listening to Crossing Danger and it’s fun to remember that it’s such a great book! I gotta get my Shelby fix until the next book comes out!

    Dear Shelby,

    A submarine? Interesting. Just out of curiosity, was the background music from the Beatles? Or the Soundtrack of “The Hunt for Red October”?

    The dream of being in a submarine means that you might see yourself in a confined space, which you cannot leave because life outside of the walls would be crushing or deadly.

    Who was running the vessel? Uncle Joey? Jackie? You might be seeing how they are steering you life. Or was someone else and you and Ramos were fighting for safe passage from the ship?

    Interesting. It might an interesting read in the near future.
