In this dream, I have a two month old baby girl Elizabeth and my son Corey; I am in what appears to be a hospital in London. I wake up in the hospital with some grungy man trying to kidnap/ rape me. He forces me to leave the hospital at knife point. After about fifteen minutes of walking he lowers his defenses just long enough for me to get the knife away from him and start screaming at the top of my lungs. A couple walking nearby hears me scream and the husband runs and tackles the man down to the ground while his wife calls the police. She gives me her husbands coat to help shield me from the wind.
The dream then jumps to me, my children's nanny and the couple taking me home from the hospital. In the parts I either don't remember or where just skipped over all together, the husband Bill and I get very close. They clearly came in two vehicles, the wife and my nanny get into one and Bill gets into the other one. The wife then suggests that I ride with her husband. As I climb into Bill's truck, the SUV pulls away very quickly. Bill grabs my hand to help me into the truck. After I get in, I very quietly (but I think he heard me anyway) tell him "I am afraid I fell in love with you." Although he doesn't say a word, he squeezes my hand and I get the distinct feeling he loves me too. He puts the truck in gear and then as we pull out of the hospital parking lot, he takes my hand in his and only releases it when he needs to use it for driving.
In what appears to be one month later, Bill, his wife, my nanny, baby Elizabeth, Corey, a friend of Sue (Bill's wife) and I were on a ship. Nanny was holding Elizabeth, and Corey was playing with some new cars Bill had bought him.
Sue spent a lot of time with my nanny, which according to Bill was odd, as his wife hated children and before marrying Bill, had taken the necessary steps to ensure she could never get pregnant. Apparently she did this without telling Bill despite knowing he wanted children. Ever since Bill found out their marriage has been very strained. For the past six months (that being when he found out) Bill has been contemplating divorcing Sue. They do have a pre-nuptial in place (and in order for him to not have to shell out a ton of money) he has to catch her/have proof of her having an affair.
Sue's friend asked if it would be okay to give my nanny a little break from Elizabeth as we will be docking soon, he said he would take her and Corey out on the deck for some fresh air and to let Corey watch the ship dock. Having no reason not to trust him, since Sue said he was a great guy who loved children, I said yes, but once the ship docks to come back so that we can gather our things and disembark together.
The ship finally docked yet they did not return. Getting worried Bill and I go to look for them while nanny and Sue stayed behind to finish gathering our things and incase they returned before we did. We find Corey on deck by himself and crying, he said the man pointed a few things out for him to look at and next thing he knew, he was gone with baby Elizabeth in his arms. We take Corey to nanny and Bill finds the man hiding. Bill pins him down until an officer arrives to help, we repeatedly ask where my daughter is. He smiles and say's "I don't know what you are talking about". I then notice him glance towards the shore. I just barely get a glimpse of a couple walking quickly towards the parked cars with my daughter in his arms. Before I could get off the ship the couple was gone, the car's tags were completely unreadable. Bill and the cops go through the man's pockets and find various papers and a large roll of cash that he previously did not have. Later we find out that the names on the paper were all false and the name of the couple who took my daughter was also false. This man sold my baby daughter to complete strangers for $30,000 cash.
Nanny and Sue had taken Corey home while Bill and I were at the police station. Nanny called my mom and told her what had happened. Mom called my cell phone and left a message telling me that she was on her way and that her flight would be landing at 7 am. She said she tried calling the house, but no one answered. Bill was in the car with me as I listened to my message and commented that either nanny or Sue should have answered the phone, knowing full well that my mom would be calling with her flight information.
When we arrived at the house it was a strange sight indeed. There were no lights visibly on and none of the servants, my nanny or Sue was around, yet her SUV was still out front. It was so late we just assumed everyone was asleep. Bill and I went to Corey's room first to make sure he was okay, as the events of the day would have really scared him. We found Corey upside down in his bed near his night light (which is rarely turned on) with Pooh grasped tightly in his arms and no blankets on him. I get out a blanket cover him up and gently kiss his cheek; I whispered how much I loved him in his ear. Bill to gently stroked his back and double checked to make sure he was all covered up then gently kissed his forehead. Bill then proceeded to check every window to ensure they were all firmly closed and locked. As we left Corey's room, I couldn't help but start to cry knowing that in the morning, I have to explain that bad people stole his baby sister, and I didn't know if we would ever be able to find her. Deep down I knew we wouldn't, but I would try my hardest anyway. Bill held me in his arms and promised me he would do everything in his power to find Elizabeth.
I suggested we check on nanny and Sue before having a glass of wine and getting some rest, since moms flight arrives first thing in the morning. Bill and Sue always use the same guest room. They keep a change of clothes for nights we have too much to drink at dinner and they are unable to drive home. When we reached their room, Bill quietly opened the door so not to wake her up if she was asleep, but the bed was still made and Sue was no where to be found. Suddenly it dawned on Bill and I (at the same time) what was going on. Sue wasn't having an affair with another man as Bill suspected, but with a woman, my nanny. Bill smiled at me, kissed me on the cheek and said "I fell in Love with you too", (so he did hear me after all). Then he asked where the camcorder was and I knew he was going to catch Sue in her affair and will be able to divorce her, the only thing she will get are her clothes, personal effects, what she owned when they got married two years ago and the SUV she is driving. I got the camcorder for him and showed him to a secret room that has a two way mirror looking into my nanny's room. I had had this installed last summer when I suspected my previous nanny was stealing from me. I had given her a two week holiday while Corey was visiting his grandma, and had some "remodeling done". I had the two way mirror discretely installed with a fake frame around it so that it looked like an in wall mirror with a small room behind it where I could video tape her taking things as proof of her theft.
As we quietly passed my nanny's room we heard noises coming from what were clearly two female voices, and knew we would get the incriminating evidence Bill needed. In the secret room we noticed the bedside lamp was on low, so there would be no doubt as to who was in there and what they were doing. After about twenty minutes of recording we had more than enough proof. We left the secret room and went to confront the two lovers. Once we were composed enough to enter with a shocked look on our faces, I opened the door, stepped in and said "What the hell is going on in here". Bill walked in and said "What the hell do you think you are doing". Both of them were too stunned to speak. I told my nanny "Get dressed and pack your things, you are fired." I grabbed her keys and watched her slowly get dress and pack. I asked Bill to watch her while I get her final pay. He agreed, and started to give Sue the third degree. When I came back with the money both the nanny and Sue were dressed and crying. Bill took Sues keys, removed all but the SUV keys and escorted her to the guest room where he told her to get her clothes. He grabbed her purse, removed all of the credit cards, and gave her just enough money for gas, hotel and food for one week, but not at the lifestyle she had become accustomed to while married to Bill. Bill told her to call his attorney tomorrow to make arrangements to get her things which he will have the staff pack. We then escorted them to the door and firmly closed the door behind them. Due to the way the entrance was designed no one could see in, Bill and I embraced in a very passionate manner, when he kissed me, my whole body just melted into him. Right then and there we decided that as hard as it would be to not be together we would wait till his divorce was finalized by the judge.
