I had a dream about Lucie
I had a dream about Lucie on Wednesday morning. (Don't worry, Tomáš - it was perfectly innocent.)
I was staying in a hotel, and was rather shocked when this lady appeared in my room just as I had gone to bed, because I knew I had locked the door!
I asked her how she got in, and she showed me this door I hadn't noticed before. There was a secret corridor behind this door!
The secret corridor was quite narrow just outside my room. Then, after a couple of twists and turns, it led down a flight of stairs, at the bottom of which was another door.
I followed the lady through this structure. The door at the bottom of the stairs opened onto a public corridor, but couldn't be seen from the other side, so I felt assured that criminals couldn't use it to access my room.
For this lady was no criminal, but was Lucie! In accordance with Joseph Griffin's dream-theory, I knew this not because I could see her face in the dream (which would mean that she was a symbol for somebody else), but because I could sense her presence.
Lucie suggested that we go to the games-room, because her chess-set was missing a couple of pieces.
So I followed her down a wide corridor, and we soon reached the games-room.
First, we had fun: Lucie challenged me to a game of table-tennis. I gladly accepted, but it was a bit embarrassing, as I couldn't even engage her in a rally, and she beat me 11-0 11-0.
Still, I felt honoured to be thrashed by Lucie at table-tennis. I told her that she was amazing; that she was like no other table-tennis player I'd ever played before. Her shots were like thunderbolts, forcing all of mine to float long.
Lucie didn't drop a point despite falling over between the first game and the second, for the shoes she was wearing had raised heels. She didn't get up immediately, so I went over to see if she was okay. She looked fine - in fact mighty fine! She didn't need my help getting up.
(No doubt Lucie's fall was inspired by the episode of Home and Away I had just seen, in which Nicole - the most attractive current character, who looks a lot like Lucie IMO - tripped over in high heels.)
After the table-tennis, we went over to the chess-set to get the pieces Lucie needed: she told me what they were, and I looked for them. But it was very difficult, because her words for the pieces were different from mine.
At that point, I woke up, which was annoying because I wanted to find out what would have happened next in my little adventure with Lucie. Would I have found the chess-pieces she was looking for? Would I have found out why she had snuck into my room in the middle of the night to get me to look for chess-pieces?
But the only dreams I remember are those I wake up from, so I'm very grateful for that, because this was by far the most intriguing dream that I've had for a couple of years!
