Broken dreams (8)
Scene WHERE - EXACTLY WHERE - TIME OF DAY
23 INSIDE - SITTING ROOM in RF `s FLAT NIGHT
„What only got rid with me, at all thus a creepy dream?“
Meanwhile she had switched on all sources of light and her terror cannot be overlooked,
the man enclosed them with his strong arms, before she could slide to ground.
„If a rotten experience must have been for you, Madleine.“
Madleine said no word, held to him only one small mirror before the face.
(unbelievingly, as startled as they afterwards)
„We are both overtires, is not at all possible.“
As to confirm this around himself, he ran of space to space, got together to himself all
mirrors which he could find, besides, his hands flew over and over again to his face, to
closer and wavy become hair. Madleine heard him a time cursing, then it heard nothing
more, went him look.
And found him broken down before a head-high mirror in his bedroom.
Madleine reached immediately for her own mobile phone and called a friendly married
couple, this time also to the magic arts turned, however, in the main occupation both
doctors, them they would also not let down.
„Have now no time what to explain, comes so fast you are able, to this address.“
Then she helped the man who can be released apathetically from his clothes and lay
down on the bed, can be covered and anyhow at all could not touch what had
happened with him: To be 31 years old, might class be for any other man, but he had
settled down just professionally and now this?
„Do not think that I give you the guilt, everything can be explained anyhow.“
The eyes closed to him and Madleine looked at him rather anxiously than enthusiastically.
One rings in the door and Madleine it hurries in the hall, opens.
24 INSIDE - HALL of RF `s FLAT - NIGHT
Man and Mrs. Anderson, just those called over friends, like-minded people, however,
before all things urgently required doctors, embrace Madleine at first warily, then strikes
them that the woman in the whole body trembles.
„Already come, so badly these will not be girls, already, or?“
Madleine cannot collect itself.
„What is this generally for a police detachment in the town and even before his front
door? One has only left alone us when we our official identity cards pointed.“
„Not now, I say You everything after.“
Everybody three goes to RF.
25 INSIDE - BEDROOM of RF - NIGHT
„The doctor who came by curiosity now to the hobby of his wife sees for the first time
the man private whom he could admire up to now as a 60 year-old actor. This young
man should also be exactly this actor?“
„If I did not see whom or what I see and if I was not persuaded of the fact that Madleine
to us pulls no leg.... Well, then we want sometimes...“
He unpacks his aid and examines the man very thoroughly, then stands up.
„Then loose, girl, while I supply him, you can already get many cloths and a bucket with
water, this becomes a thrilling night.“
While he is occupied, Marie Madleine presses in the bath to search the requested and to

„What has this to mean now, Madleine? Now does not say me, he wanted to get himself
in this state.“
Madleine shakes the head.
„I had warned him very well, it got out of control: only he has only fantasized, then
sweated and has cried and then that appeared to young face which he also has now and
of course he also is in the body of a man, 31 is.“
Madleine reaches for the cloths and goes again to the bedroom.
27 INSIDE - BEDROOM of RF - NIGHT
She is surprised again how fast her friends work, he still created it to fix the man of what
she takes note startled.
„What does this have to do? Are we not too third of man enough around.?“
„We do not know yet how he will behave. Because he already broke down when he got
to see only his rejuvenated face what you mean, will happen with the rest, see here.“
He uncovers the body of the man and she recognises the amusing body of the man again
who wrote film history already at other times: this sight led to the fact that women did not
know how to been before enthusiasm, one entitled to him as the most attractive English
actor of all times and what of the hymns were even more.
„I know very well what you mean. Every artist experiences ageing own body in quite
different manner, but in other direction....“
Marie looked tensely at Madleine `see face as Pieter which had to begin to calm the
recumbent and to hold him possibly of it from to consider itself now closer not to force
up the fever even more.
„You do not want to have known this?“
„I have got to know him as a 55 year-old man and would never have held for possible
that within the hypnosis time can happen. Why should I rob him intentionally of his
Of course there was on it no answer, Marie and Pieter anticipated both that Madleine
had already loved the man, before he looked like 30, a little more recently than they
„If your both nothing has against it, I look something around him, but it would feel well
if now and again sometimes somebody saw after me, I can find at the moment though no
rest, but this will probably soon change.“
Pieter accepted, left alone Madleine with the man first of all.
RF came something to itself, perceived very well that he could not move.
(in a hurry)
„You did not have to answer to me my questions, you cannot help me certainly also a lot,
I only want to know: why I must lie so.“
„Pieter, the doctor who took care yours is of the opinion not to move you further on, it is
so first of all the best and surest.“
„I would be sure hardly in your present from the window jumped.“
He saw in Madleine `s face that exactly the wrong reaction was and he yielded.
„Has something happened with my body.?“
He felt no pains, but if he had stood under shock, he would probably still come, then,
however, it would be a time for it. He did not long for pains, however, after an
explanation of his changed face. Shadowy pictures appeared exactly from that year
when he looked original so and he gave a loud groan quietly and desperately.
„You were not injured, give you no troubles and I will get the doctor who will give
something to the reassurance to you, I create it thus not only with you, thus not.“
„Of course Madleine knew the history of the year 19.. . To her the cold sweat resigned,
she did not want to look in the inner life of RF, not at this moment.“
Madleine got Pieter which also gave the medicine against the upcoming, too violent
excitement which the man took after some hesitation to himself and sank in a not very
28 INSIDE - SITTING ROOM of RF - NIGHT
„So, Madleine, after he will probably find some rest, you lie down and we three take
turns. I have asked Christopher here, not only orderly, but also have hid and what is the
best: he will conjure RF during the next days a mask rightly which is worthy of notice.
Might go for the first time, until we have found a better solution. Now to the friends of
the police what we do there? They will think, a younger man lives here, would have
killed RF anyhow and removes.“
„No, you joker, not under the eyes of the police. And the detective superintendent has
let the photos which you can see there on the table us personally either here, or
forgotten simply away: these messages have to go from the interworld come where IT is
to be found. The police is already occupied with the case and also the department for
unusual cases. Because RF is just thus an unusual case, we must find for his other
appearance just a very clever explanation.“
„And it would be?“
„Is level just out of a clear sky appeared like the supernatural messages if this do not
swallow, we let RF under Pieters supervision just in a police lab take blood and then his
identity is cleared. If the best is though. But RF is not momentary so completely at the
height and even if he is this then again, the press will rush at him like the vultures on the
Madleine lay down in the bedroom of RF on a narrow couch and fell asleep almost
29 INSIDE - BEDROOM of RF - NIGHT
„The persons present to which they watched and also for those who slept it became a
long heavy night with many tears, exhaustion and reproaches.“
Madleine woke about 2 o'clock of morning when she quietly heard something. Of
course: RF always tried to control itself to suppress his feelings and his pain.
„One where YOU are I need somebody.“
Madleine jumped up, calmed him, took a humid cloth and cooled with it his hot
forehead, continued with it as long as, until he came something to himself.
„I must get up around.“
Of course Madleine understood the embarrassing situation, shook the head because
she knew, Pieter had also made provision there: for it the sick person did not need to
leave the bed and awkwardly and with highly red head she explained it to him.
RF was not to be calmed, it begged formally to release him, until she gave way and
already had a hand of him freely when Marie came in addition and prevented that she
also solved the 2nd hand.
„Now is not that what I think, or? What wanted you to reach with it, Madleine? Should
he be moved at this night quite half before bewilderment? What has happened,
apparently one cannot cancel any more.“
Marie made sure that RF could not understand them, turned to Madleine, her in the ear
„Yes, I also see, he is very young suddenly again and even more attractive than before
days, but how will he take this himself? We must wait, to the fever away is.“
„Now the fever already rises with the slightest strain and excitement of him. NOW we
two can do exactly this what is maybe the only possibility, to him help to understand
how he looks: neither injures, nor mutilates, on the contrary: Good-looker is a stranger if
one so sees.“
Marie went to ask her man for advice, returned with him. Pieter nodded.
„Nicely, but.... there is no your responsibility, will get stuck on Marie and me if he breaks
down the 2nd time.“
Pieter bent to RF, briefly made sure that he had woken up almost completely and
informed him what he would see same. Besides, he observed him very exactly.
RF nodded and the women saw a moment aside, not from shyness and shame, rather
because of fear.
Pieter was strong enough with his 43 years, solved all binding of the man and put him for
few moments on the legs.
RF swayed in the arms of the doctor like a sheet in the wind, briefly considered itself
around the eyes then rather before exhaustion than before fright to close.
Drawing a deep breath Pieter laid him again back in the bed and agreed to the women.
"I have no notion what he has got, in addition he is general in too bad constitution. If he
has a fever during the next hours and it still rises maybe, me immediately call, yes, Marie?"
Marie promised to do this, Pieter lay down something, while Marie and Madleine saw
after the sick person.
„RF had been able to have a look really briefly, however, intensely, anyhow his sight did
not surprise him at all what had he expected? Why only should his face become
rejuvenated? How all that could happen, now, nevertheless, made no difference, no
reason for the other people to spare him.“

Marie controlled during the next hours of the beginning morning the temperature of the
man and found out pleased that he was about 6 o'clock nearly without fever, however,
Madleine asked, she may move him on top of that to remain lying.
One had removed the binding to him everybody, the women dozed off occasionally and
sometime awoken RF completely.
„Feel me astonishingly well, may be no mistake if I get movement.“
A little bit uncertainly he rose from the bed went only slowly, then a little more quickly
and felt almost with every step finer.
31 INSIDE - BATHROOM of RF - MEET
More still: cheerfully, buoyantly he smiled at his reflexion in the bath, until to him it

„Clear, for me and the people who are at the moment around me this may be quite a
normal sight what, however, if I go from the house and this I have to do sometimes.“
Madleine appeared in the door of the space, grinned.
„Now you look more recently than me, bewilderingly not?“
She saw how to him became apparently briefly dizzy and held on him. Blushing she
found out that he looked them still softly and exceedingly affectionately.
„What will you do now, RF?“
(laughing, real, happy laughter)
„What do you probably mean what I must do first of all? Me shave, I look ghastly.
Notice just: is still a little dim to me, do you help me?“
She looked at him surprised, he believed seriously or what came through there in him?
Then, however, she seized his handy razor, waited, until he had prepared his face and
enjoyed each of his handles. Softly she went to him over the superfluous beard hair, her
tongue glided playfully and between the lips out.
He had firmly closed his eyes, waited quietly, until it was ready, she had made actual not
to injure him.
„Which plans are planned, my extrasensory princess?“
„Is this not obvious clearly, "Hamlet" whom you could soon probably play? I have had
the idea to give up you to the police, because thus you are - excuses if I call this so -
Nobody who dresses up with the face of the RF, without somebody anticipates that you
yourself are it. Your identity must be registered because of your evident age anew and
you had a good wire to this person who came there with the strange photos, around.„
She saw how RF became deathly pale.
„The person could really be from use.“
„Pieter and Marie will agree to me there if one can take yet no blood from you, the
papers which are in your possession, the fingerprints that everything should reach for
„Great as everybody wants to spare me, I have some phases about which I do not know
what was wrong, but I would like to work the sooner the better.“
„We probably let this rather decide Pieter and Marie, no reason now what to rush. My
friends will suggest to you a sensible programme which you should pass physically and
psychically and I think, for it it is too early if you had to allow to help yourself while
RF tried out a little his overriding dramatic art which reached from languishing-
delightfully to evil-nasty and back too suffering and practically almost tearful.
RF `s voice off-screen
„Want to see sometimes whether you offer resistance to me if I make the impression as if
it went especially near me. The weakness? On it I give nothing, have probably
disappeared, fortunately. And you, my sweet extrasensory beauty? I think, I allow to
melt you a little there.“
She recognised very sudden in his face quite a certain uncanny suffering expression. And
considered immediately whether the exactly calculated facial play was. From which film
or stage play had he taken this perfect look in the private with in?
Madleine `s voice off-screen
„Damned and beloved guy, you will not bring me with your almost rotten tricks to the
fact that I retune my friends they will not dance after your whistle like it one Ralf already
acts. This ill shine in your eyes. He cannot be played and, unfortunately, yours to high
fever was also very real at night. This must not really happen on occasion.
I would like to burst into tears, if it does not feel, however, you should not consider, not
now. Hopefully it is no matter of time, until you break down before my eyes and I bet,
this makes no difference to you just such a thing from, completely in such a way as if you
practised details for a new role.“
She briefly glided to him over the brown hair, did not consider long, embraced him
silently and kissed him for several minutes very passionately...

„At the same time Pieter and Marie together with Christopher discussed the other ways.
For them was clear that one wanted to wait first of all for how RF stood his time won
anew and strength on a continuing basis and was as clear: there would be no stressful
programme which would bring him to the edge of his loading capacity. He should
undertake no world trip. Madleine covered just the table for the breakfast when it pulled
„How does he come along?“
„He is still long not so far, however, edges out it and will try with all kinds of dirty tricks
to tune You.“
Pieter had prepared even some sides which looked for Madleine like a sick person's
act, he briefly nodded, she had properly supposed.
Common food ran taciturn, as if everybody was too occupied with her own ideas, what
corresponded partially also to the truth. RF looked almost at everybody briefly and very
examining as if he hopes for the following sentences: „Clear, go off and try you from.“
There are more things in heaven and earth .
Anyhow suitably partially with "Hamlet" borrows.Who could be now RF? I am too timid around which to write. If one can turn back the time of the life to an honoured actor in this described manner, why I should not at least try it then. Unfortunately, there is not this time machine yet.
In the Greek mythology good-looker is the symbol or the God of the beauty and the vegetation and one of the lovers of Aphrodite (or her Roman correspondence Venus). He is described as a wonderful youth.
Because I work in this experimental story a lot with exaggerations of all kind, symbolism also, several interpretations are absolutely possible, because who is real or better like RF: who can know this already?
However, in the German version with Wikipedia one does not say good-looker, for me it reads on in English very drolly.Authors comment
