Laurie Hunter was convulsing in tears as she stepped onto the train from the elevated platform. Several passengers looked up as she slowly stumbled to an empty three seater. Once she propped herself against the window, the distraught woman unlocked her metal brief case. The gallon bottle of Pellegrino Red-already a quarter of the way gone, beckoned soothingly. Laurie was not much of a drinker, but the 90-minute ride to Wallingford Falls provided enough time. Maybe she could booze the day away.
Directly below the wine bottle was the reason for Laurie’s pain. She had suspected, now she knew. Glenn had been cheating after all. The private investigator’s reports complete with written, audio, and video accounts confirmed it. Sure, their marriage was far from perfect, but after 12 years and two kids-was their marriage that bad?Laurie was devastated by her husband’s cheating.
All the usual questions came. “Who was the slut Glenn was banging?” “For how long?” “What was WRONG with ME?” “Damnit!” “I’ll kill the son of a bitch!” Laurie wondered if she should fly to Miami and interrupt Glenn’s trip. Who knew what he was up to? He would not be home for a week, the following Friday. Laurie had called her Mom and asked her to watch the kids. Her mother was worried, but Laurie assured her that everything would be explained soon.
Obviously, while she may have temporarily put her mother at bay, Laurie was on her own last nerve.About 10 minutes into her train ride, the wine and the emotional stress caught up with Laurie, and she slumped into a deep sleep.
The bottle was ready to spill on Laurie’s lap when a hand-Her hand-steadied it. The new Woman took the bottle as the train neared Her stop. She placed an envelope on Laurie’s lap. On the front was written, “Call Me as soon as possible.” Seeing the monthly ticket in a small case draped around Laurie’s neck, the Woman spotted a conductor. Twirling a purple amethyst in front, of him, She flashed a smile straight out of a Crest commercial. “Sir, there’s a woman passed out a few rows back. She’s heading to Wallingford Falls.” Please see she gets off the train safely.” “Yes Ma’am”, came the reply as the train pulled in to a station.
Leigha Rose got off the train. After tossing the wine bottle into a garbage pail, She took a few steps towards the front of the train. Laurie’s head was on her chest, mouth open, and sound asleep.Leigha sighed as the train moved out. “See you soon, My pet.”
That Monday morning, Laurie sat in Leigha’s office. She still did not fully understand why she was there. Laurie was still amazed at the weekend. Heading home that Friday, she fell asleep on the commuter train. An engineer woke her up. However, the bottle of Pellegrino wine was gone, and an envelope on her lap. On the envelope was written, “Call Me as soon as possible.” Inside was a note. “I can help you with your problems. Whatever they are, drinking is never the answer. Call Me. Leigha Rose.”
At first, Laurie was incensed at the apparent intrusion-until she thought: “Was this the same ‘Leigha Rose’ making a name for Herself as a hypnotherapist? Laurie was an assignment editor for the news department of a television station. She had friends who did radio ads for this Woman, “Relax, let your troubles go. Take a trance on Me.” “What the hell, why not?”
Laurie called Leigha Saturday morning, leaving a message. Surprisingly Leigha called back, and Laurie, still fuming about the news of her husband’s adultery, let all her emotions go. Leigha was calm, supportive. Laurie had no way of knowing, but the Hypnotherapist was overjoyed when Laurie mentioned Glenn was one of the largest Jaguar dealers in the state. Laurie’s husband had taken his dad’s business and turned it into a chain of 11 Jaguar centers. Leigha promised Laurie that hypnosis and therapy could and would help her and her husband.
Of course, Laurie had no idea that Leigha was a Hypnodomme, and she and Glenn were on course to be added to Leigha’s stable of pets.
Laurie stood up, looking around the room. Leigha was in the reception area, tending to a phone call. At five-seven, Laurie was in good shape for a woman nearing forty. She had short dark hair and dark eyes, extremely personable. THAT’S what bothered her the most. Laurie was kind-too kind-to everyone. Hadn’t she put aside her own needs aside-for her ailing Dad, then her husband? She was an assignment editor when she should have been a producer. Her parents, Glenn, the kids-even the underachieving job she had-they ALWAYS came first. Glenn had his career while Laurie put advancement-personal and professional- on hold.
As she gazed around Leigha’s office, Laurie saw pictures of Leigha at several events: The March of Dimes Walkathon, the town Little League. Leigha sponsored the team. One photo caught her eye: At a ballpark was a photo of Leigha with several people, including ***Brian Mitchell the sports producer at her station! Brian was a client? Maybe Leigha was part of the reason Brian just seemed happier. Brian was always well liked at the station, respected for his work and the difficulties he faced with Cerebral Palsy. In the last few months, Brian was better than ever, ALWAYS smiling, always going the extra mile at work. For the first time in over three days, Laurie smiled. “Maybe this stuff works after all”, she thought as Leigha walked in, closing the door behind Her.
Laurie was not into girls, but even she knew Leigha was stunning. Five-four, with long legs, short brown hair with blonde highlights-perfect to expose rich, brown eyes that seemed to enlarge as you looked into them. “Hi, I’m Leigha Rose.” The hypnotic Vixen shook Laurie’s hand-never taking her eyes off her soon to be pet. Strategically, She lightly touched the inside of Laurie’s wrist. Laurie almost gasped at the gentle stroking. “Laurie Hunter. Thank you for seeing me. Say, do You know ***Brian Mitchell?”
“Yes, Brian’s a client. I asked his permission to put up that picture so as not to break any confidentiality codes. He’s doing very well.” “You’re right” Laurie answered. “I work with Brian and we have noticed a change.” The change of course was Leigha. Brian was a faithful pet ready to do Leigha’s bidding.Leigha smiled readily. “Please sit down and let’s talk about you.” Leigha lightly touched Laurie, guiding her to a chair-once again careful to touch the inside of Laurie’s wrist.
For the next 20 minutes, Laurie went into detail about her relationship with Glenn. Leigha noted that Glenn clearly was the lead horse, the dominant personality. Leigha sensed that Laurie had repressed feelings about always being a doormat, always giving in to the wishes of others, whether forced by her siblings to be the only caregiver during their father’s illness or blindly following Glenn from town to town as his Jaguar business expanded. It had taken all Laurie’s courage just to convince Glenn to settle in Wallingford Falls once the kids started school. Laurie’s submissiveness would have to change. Leigha had to make sure of it.
Leigha got up from Her chair, dimming the lights. “Laurie, I’d like to try a relaxation exercise. You have to deal with Glenn, but you also have to deal with yourself. I have a feeling this will help you.”
“OK. But what about Glenn?” HE should be here! He HURT me!”
“Yes he did Laurie. We will deal with him. BELIEVE Me. I have done extensive marriage counseling and that is where we will go. First, let us deal with you and your feelings. Saving your marriage depends on it.”
“I guess You’re right, Leigha”, Laurie sighed. As nervous as she was, it was easy to share all this with this gentle, confident Woman. Laurie admired Her already.The Hypnodomme handed Laurie a pair of headphones as She grabbed a microphone. She flicked a switch and slow, New Age sounding music featuring harps and violins softly filled the room. Another switch, and the room was dark save for alarge glowing purple object on the short table next to Leigha’s desk chair. Leigha began the process of welcoming Laurie to Her “family.”
“Now Laurie...What you see is an amethyst. I had it specially made to match the one I’m wearing.” Leigha strode over to Laurie and pulled out the amethyst She was wearing on a gold chain. “See how it sparkles? I’ve had it in My family a long time.” “Wow! it’s pretty.” Laurie could not take her gaze off it. She was disappointed when Leigha put it away. Leigha sensed this and quickly responded. “The glowing amethyst here is SO MUCH BIGGER than the one I have, SO MUCH MORE PRETTY. You like pretty things, right, Laurie?”
“Yes”, Laurie answered, surprised at the beauty of the glimmeringjewel next to Leigha’s chair.
“Good. Just relax. Listen to the music as you look at the amethyst glowing on the table. Breathe in and out. Just relax. See if you can find the center of the amethyst. Watch it glow. Watch it spiral in the center. Breathe in and out. In through your nose, out through the mouth. Picture this jewel glowing in your mind. Focus on it. Listen to Me as you look at such a pretty amethyst. I am going to touch the inside of your right wrist Laurie. Breathing in and out. Good girl. Whenever you need to relax…touch the inside of your right wrist and see the amethyst before you. Good. Now you do it. All your focus on the amethyst as you touch the inside of your wrist. Very good Laurie. Stare at the amethyst and let your body go…Breathing in and out. Perfectly safe, no one will hurt you here. NO ONE. The amethyst soothes you…relaxes you. Your body is feeling heavy as you look at the glowing amethyst. Listening to Me. Gently touching the inside of your wrist keeps the amethyst forever in your mind. The amethyst soothes you. Relaxes you…brings you peace. Your feet are warm and heavy, so heavy...You want MORE and MORE relaxation. Isn’t that right Laurie?”
“Yessss, Leigha. Laurie’s body was fading, her mind detached.
“Good Laurie. You are a good girl, a very good girl. Relaxation comes when you see the amethyst and you touch the inside of your wrist. Your body is so heavy now, so sleepy…your legs, hips, tummy…just letting go to My voice and Me. You are touching your wrist, but you feel like your drifting…letting go of Glenn, the kids, the job EVERYTHING…EXCEPT, it is just you and Me now. Your body falls deeper. Your eyes close, but the amethyst is still in your mind. The more you look. The more relaxxxed you are. So good, so peaceful…just you and Me…this is Laurie’s time…with a nice Lady. A Lady who cares. Just you and Me Laurie. Breathing in and out…Listening to Me…I understand Laurie…no one wants to be hurt. But I am here for you. Breathe and let go…Good girl……Now see the amethyst in front of you. Glowing…bringing relaxation to you…anytime you need it.""
Imagine yourself at the top of a staircase. A spiraling staircase…see the amethyst float down the staircase…to the bottom…You are still at the top of the staircase…but you need that amethyst. YOU CRAVE it Laurie. At the bottom of the staircase…is Me, standing next to it…smiling…because you are AN AWESOME PERSON Laurie…a strong DOMINANT PERSON…the amethyst knows it, and so do I. Keep your eyes on the amethyst Laurie…as you step down the stairs…one at a time…each step relaxes you…each step makes you stronger…each more capable…One step at a time…relaxing deeper…for Me…who understands…for the amethyst that holds the relaxation and power you deserve…Down each step…deeper towards relaxation and the Lady who loves you…Lady Leigha…when you reach the bottom you will hold the amethyst, and reach out to Me. When we hug, you will fall into a deep sleep…aware of all things but FULLY CALM and RELAXXED…Come to Me Laurie…down the staircase.”
Microphone in hand, Leigha rose and sat alongside Laurie, slumped on the couch. “Ten steps left. See Me smiling at you. So proud. You are so strong, Laurie. So relaxxed. Nine…going deeper…Eight…deeper. The amethyst and I call to You…Seven…Listen to Me, Lady Leigha. I am Lady Leigha, your Lady, who will always treat you with love and respect…who you love and obey…Six…deeper…I want to hug you Laurie…so proud of you and your strength…Your Lady is so proud…you’re so relaxed, gazing at the powerful amethyst in your mind…Five…deeper…moving towards complete relaxation and powerful sleep…so drawn to Me…Four…the amethyst is within reach…three…breathing in and out as I approach you…smiling…so proud…so loving…deeper towards sleep…your eyes focused on the amethyst and Me as you extend your arms…the amethyst and Lady Leigha are the keys to your POWERFUL, DOMINANT SELF…You KNOW I WILL HELP YOU…You CRAVE MY HELP…Two…almost there…feeling so fully relaxed…ready to hug your Lady…to surrender your cares to the amethyst and the Lady who understands, who you trust and obey..One…Deep breath...grab the amethyst Laurie…fully relaxed…reach out…hug your Lady Leigha…and SLEEP!"
Laurielurched sound asleep into Leigha’s arms. Leigha gently positioned her on the couch. “Laurie, can you hear me?”
“Yes, Lady Leigha.”“Very good, Laurie. Breathe in and out for Me. In through the nose. Out through your mouth. Listen to Me Laurie. I am your Lady Leigha. Others may call Me Queen or Goddess. You will call Me Lady, because for too long you have not been treated like one. I have recorded our session. You will listen to the CD as soon as you awake and immediately before bed. If you need to adjust your schedule to do so, you will. Do you understand?”
“Yes, Lady Leigha.”
“Good. When you need to relax, when you are stressed, you will gently touch the inside of your right wrist and all the soothing relaxation of My voice and the amethyst will return to your mind and body. Do you understand Laurie?”
“Yes, Lady Leigha.”“Excellent. You my call me ‘My Lady’ or ‘Lady Leigha.’-and whenever I and ONLY I hold My amethyst in front of you and say, “Your Lady commands you…Relax…listen…obey…” you will do so without question. Seeing Me with the amethyst makes you relaxed, and obedient…but STRONG AND CAPABLE as well. Tell Me you understand.”
“I understand, my Lady.”
“Excellent. You will see Me every day the rest of the week. You are a strong, dominant woman. When I snap My fingers, you will be wide awake, aware of all that happened here…Three…slowly coming out of trance…two…fully refreshed...and relaxed…and ONE!"-SNAP!
Laurie was startled, but upon seeing Leigha, she beamed brighter than a rising sun.
“How do you feel Laurie?”“Wonderful!”
Leigha pulled Her amethyst out of Her blouse. “Look at the amethyst, Laurie. Your Lady commands you. Relax…listen…obey your Lady.” Laurie’s eyes went glassy, enthralled by the jewel and her Lady.
“Yes my Lady”
“Laurie…what Glenn did to you was wrong. No matter what the reasoning, adultery is ALWAYS wrong. How would you enjoy it if Glenn were your servant always, in love with you, you alone-NEVER to stray again?”
“That would be wonderful. Are You planning revenge?”
“No, I mean the husband he was when you first met him-and MORE.”
“I DO LOVE him. But can I make Glenn know the pain he’s causing?”
“Leave that to Me, My pet.” Leigha hugged Her new slave. “Leave that to Me.”
