DP Daily Prompt: Freudian Flips
Do you remember a recent dream you had?Or an older one that stayed vivid in your mind? Today you are your own Freud: Tell us the dream, then interpret it for us ! Feel free to be as serious or humorous as you see fit, or invent a dream if you don’t remember a real one.
Many decades ago there was a girl who had dreams that sometimes frightened her and at other times answered the questions she wondered about in a dream.
The girl’s name was ‘Mollika’ meaning flower in English. For a few months she was disturbed by the fact that her sister Shilpi was keeping all the money she was told to divide between all the siblings.
Here is what the brother told her, “Shilpi” you are the beneficiary of my will, after my death please divide the money among the siblings.”
Shilpi promised she would. She told her older sister about the conversation with the brother and let her know she did not want to divide the money ,the older sister agreed to protect her.
The brother died, it was a huge amount of money, Shilpi was in no mood to divide it,she wanted all of it. The older sister was happy to get her share.
Mollika the sister who knew the story told the siblings about the brother’s death wish. All of them wanted their share, Shilpi brushed it off by saying Mollika was lying.
One day Mollika dreamt her brother came to her house, she asked him where he was, he said he had to go to the doctor because of stomach issues. Mollika asked him what he had told Shilpi about the life insurance money, he smiled and said, “I told her to divide it between the siblings”.
Mollika was happy to know it, she thought at least they won’t call her a liar. She related her dream but the two sisters made fun of her and told the people involved that Mollika was a liar.
My interpretation of this dream is the brother visited Mollika to let her know she was telling the truth, and hoped evil Shilpi would be afraid and would do as she was told.
