This Object

A woman who pulls something off that she shouldn’t have by way of resource. A secret possession, which is small and makes her smile a Cheshire smile, like the cat with the canary. She does not want anyone else to see it. She sits and produces the item from her person and cups her hands over it in her skirted lap. All energy is focused on her prize and like a mother with a newborn, one knows to give them their space and time. She protects it and gazes into it and it entrances her. When she snaps to -she swiftly puts the thing away and regains her composure. What happened to her in her dream? Does she know she was in a trance state? She seems shifty, almost uncomfortable like she’s coming back to earth after a long visit away.
