Karma Train - fic

silly (and very short) story about my recent dream. I may work on it at some point to really flesh it out. I'd like to think this may be my first 'payment'

disclamer he isn't mine - he belongs to himself (and peripherally to his parents girlfreind and what not)

She opened her eyes into the dream. She isn’t surprised to see him there; after all he had become a fixture in her dreams lately. The young, attractive actor had been turning up in a variety of costume and character, to her mind a sure sign of an impending mid-life crisis. The school boy uniform confirms it.

“You have an interesting mind,” he says when he notices her looking at him.

“Thank you,” she says with a girlish smile. She can feel her self blushing. It’s silly. This is just a dream, just like all the others, and what will happen will happen, and she will feel weird and guilty about it in the morning, “you should know, you are a part o fit.”

“Not exactly. No,” he smiles, his too bright smile, “it’s hard to explain. Think of me as a sub contractor. I’m here to remind you of the things you have to do this week.”

“Like I could forget,” her mind runs over the to-do list for the week, making note of all the doctor appointments.

“Well I was told you were trying to get out of them. That you aren’t taking care of yourself,” he’s stepping towards her, for some reason this makes her nervous.

“This is really weird,” she says.

“It’s not all that bad, not really, I come here as part of your sub conscious and you pay me.”

“So you’re like a psychic hooker?”

“No. I’m like a psychic sub contractor, did you miss that part? I’m here to tell you to take care of yourself. People are worried.”

“OK and how do I pay you exactly?”

“It’s sort of a Karma thing.”

“So you come and tell me to go to the Doctor and I give you good Karma?”


“Do you know how nuts this sounds?”

“Yeah,” he says with a shrug, “but who are you gonna tell?”

“No one. Who would believe me?” She says with a laugh, “But tomorrow night can we skip the ‘take care of yourself’ part and just go back to the normal mid-life crisis dreams?”

“Sure. You’re the boss here,” he says with a laugh.

I think the second part has to do with a discussion about Loleta and entomology. I just haven't written it yet.

well Nabacov (sp?) who wrote Loleta was an entomologest - he woked for Harvard. I actulay had a dream (Like the one above) where Jared and I were discussing that... he was dressed as Tom from cry_wolf
