I'm talking to a Belgian academic
I know. He's taunting
me about when I visited somewhere in Romania
. He's saying
that I had an affair
with another academic who was there
at the same time. I feel indignant and angry
Also here is another visiting academic, a chinese girl.
My friend is implying it is inevitable I will have an affair with her too.
I'm furious about this.
Now I'm in a city centre, somewhere I don't recognise.
It's night and there are lots of bright
coloured lights from shopfronts, maybe a bus station. I'm with the Chinese girl
and even though I'm still angry with my friend I find myself
putting my arm around her. She also holds onto me tightly.
As the dream ends, some kind of sexual encounter seem inevitable.
When I wake up I feel very uncomfortable, as though I have betrayed myself.
Over to you Dr Freud.
