Hold my arm and close your eyes.
Maybe we can wish our way from this place. It was a horrible month.
Quiet. It sounds so quiet. Don't open your eyes just yet. It still feels warm like the flames are nearby.
What was that? Did you touch me on the shoulder?
I'm going to carefully open my eyes.
You can open them too. Oh you have already.
You've seen. It's Basil Rathbone touching my shoulder.
You don't know Basil Rathbone? Hang on a minute. I'll talk with him first. Then I'll let you know more about him. You have a look around. I think we are in New York.
He was very flattered I knew quite a bit about him.
Let's tell you about Rathbone. So you recognize his face. Probably not surprising. He was one of THE actors who played Sherlock Holmes in several films. I think there's only been about three actors who have played that character almost definitively. The guy who played Doctor Watson in his films is a totally different matter. Definitely one of the worst.
But I knew him also as playing villains in films. He played Sir Guy of Gisbourne, the sword fighting main villain in The Adventures of Robin Hood for example. He was flattered that I knew he was an expert swordsman - well, fencer as he described it.
For a moment everything changed and I felt I was sword fighting him.
We were fighting up some stone stairs in a castle. Everything seemed to be unreal.
But then somehow it changed again.
We were sword fighting again but this time I somehow felt in control and he was off balance.
I started to remember where I was and who he was. I expressed, "You're Lord Ravenhurst."
He then sneered clicked his fingers but everything was back here where we are.
He was frustrated as though thing hadn't changed how he wanted.
So he dismissed me. I ran back here to you.
You didn't see that? Or did you?
