Imagined Snippets,  Red

Through a dream

“Can you compel people over the phone?” Joshua asks suddenly, “Or do you need eye contact?”

“Eye contact helps but isn’t necessary. As for over the phone…it depends. The more extensive the compulsion, the harder that would be.”

“Could you compel my mom to believe I’m okay?”

“I…perhaps. It’s something she would want to believe so that would help.”

“And do you think they’d be watching her closely enough to hear every phone call? Will they have hacked her cell phone or planted listening devices?”

“It may not be necessary to find out. You are her biological son, correct?”

Joshua blinks. “Yes?”

“You’re not certain?”

“I’m certain, I’m wondering why it’s relevant.”

“We may be able to reach her through a dream.”
