EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:
“Why did you bring up the dream? I was happy he stopped having it,” Cathy asked Flore. “Why did you remind him?

“There was a police chief in our village named Kiki. He captured an American drug trafficker, who bribed the judges and the police and was charged with a much lesser crime. He was given a couple of years in jail but got out in eight months. Everyone in our village knew he killed Kiki. He came to our village, bribed the police officers working for Kiki, and killed Kiki and his family. They found the bodies of Kiki, his wife, and his nine-year-old son, but not his two-year-old daughter,” said Flore.

“Don’t tell this to Richard. I don’t want you to confuse him any more than he already is. I’m glad that he stopped seeing that dream,” said Cathy. “Probably you told him the story when he was small, and that is why he started seeing those dreams.”

“I agree with Cathy,” said Phil. “Don’t mention it to him.”

“What is the name of your village, and how long ago did this happen?” asked Mary, who wanted to become an investigative journalist and was already acting like one while still being in grade ten.

“It is called Juarez, and I was nine years old when this happened, so eighteen years ago,” said Flore. “Like all the little girls in the village, I was in love with him. He was such a nice man and so handsome, everyone in the village cried when he was killed,” continued Flore.

Mary immediately opened her device and started typing and clicking, and in a couple of minutes, she said, “I found him. His name was Enrique Coto, known as Kiki Coto. He was the chief of police in Juarez, but his killer has never been found.”

Cathy excitedly exclaimed, “Now I am sure that is what happened! You told this horrible story to Richard when he was a baby, and that’s why he was having nightmares for so many years! Thank God he is over it.”

“No, Cathy, I never told this story to anyone. Richard did not hear it from me,” said Flore. “I don’t even know the details of his murder.”

“Please don’t remind him anymore,” said Cathy.

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
The different episodes of this book were projected to me, like movie clips during meditation sessions. I was compelled to visit a Shaman retreat in Cusco, Peru, and experience Ayahuasca to complete the manuscript. I hope you enjoy the results, the story of Kiki Coto.
