Celine Skye and Her Psychic Dream

Nupur Tustin

As a psychic art sleuth, Celine Skye often receives clues and insights into a case from psychic dreams. But since not every dream is a psychic dream—some will simply be taken from the events of our daily life—Celine has to examine what she’s seen to determine whether it’s worth considering.

So in Bearer of Secrets when she finds herself in a church with Jesus, whose voice sounds disturbingly familiar, Celine has to wonder if the dream holds a clue to the Gardner theft:

***

She’d been dreaming

Clearly. But what had it meant? Anything?

Celine turned her head back, her gaze fixed on the white ceiling looming over her. She’d been poring over the Gardner Museum file—just as Julia had suggested— before she went to bed.

“Who knows, it might trigger some psychic dreams,” the former fed had suggested. It was the only thing they could think of when their usual strategy of inducing a trance had failed miserably—producing only vivid and terrifying images of the shot that had taken Jonah Hibbert’s life. 

“I can’t do this,” Celine had gasped. “I can’t do it anymore, Julia.”

Even the memory of it made her shudder. Tight-lipped, she tore her mind away from the impressions swarming her brain. 

So, she’d been looking through the Gardner file last night. What had she focused on?

The gu. Belle had told her there was something about the wine vessel she was forgetting. 

Then she’d turned the page to the five Degas sketches taken from the Short Gallery. A large color photo of the Manet the thieves had made off with was mounted on the facing page. 

In her mind’s eye, Celine had seen a large golden key sitting atop the pages. The image had been so vivid, she’d reached out to touch it, only to feel the glossy paper of the photographs and the thick, rough texture of the paper on which they were mounted. 

She’d understood that to mean that the stolen Impressionist works were the key to—what exactly? Some clue or information she was missing about the gu? 

Would finding the Degas and the Manet lead to the Shang dynasty wine vessel?

And how did the church fit in? Why had she found herself there anyway?

It wasn’t a church in either Los Angeles, where she’d spent her childhood, or Paso Robles, her home for the past eight years. 

Boston? The voice she’d heard coming from the figure of the Savior had sounded so familiar. Where had she heard it before?
