Doctor Calmer Wakes up in a strange place!

SHORT STORIES AND POEMS PRESENTS: “THE HEADSHRINKER” LAST TIME ON HEADSHRINKER:



Doctor Calmer: “Who are you?” …..and where is this place?”
Fake wife: “You are home dear,” and calm yourself, you have been through a lot.”  “A very bad bump on the head, short-term memory loss, and a slight concussion.”

“Lay back down, get some rest, things will make more since 

in the morning dear.”

The doctor quickly agreed for he though if someone would go 
through the trouble to fake all of this, they must be 

watching.  

All he could remember clearly was the prison and that loud 

explosion.  So he laid back down.

    Stunned, disoriented, slightly confused, Doctor Calmer carefully plans his next moves.
Suddenly he remembers the device he got from one of his clients:

FLASH BACK:
Doctor Calmer: “Wait a minute!” “You said some of them out there knows more about what’s going on, you shouldn’t be talking here, the place could be under surveillance.
Stand: “Don’t worry Doc, I got it covered, He said as he pulled out a cell phone with an unusual device plugged into it.  “One of my latest creations”
Doctor Calmer: “What is that?”
Stand: “It is a special white-sound device the scrambles one’s personal conversations, so that no one can eavesdrop on you.”
Doctor Calmer: “Scrambled signals can be unscrambled Son.”
Stand: “Maybe so, however when they do, that’s when the software really goes to work and confuses them even more.”  “I call it my tower-of-babel program.” “It will sound like I’m kicking it with my homies, and pay it know mind,”
Doctor Calmer: “Very clever my Son.”  “I will pull some strings and get you immediately put in my custody under house arrest.”  “No one would dare try anything with me watching them.”  “After my report, they would have too much to explain.”
Stand:  “Thanks Doc!”  “You are a good man, here take one of my devices, in case we get separated, so I can call you safely when I can.”
Doctor Calmer: “Thank you.”  “I was wanting to learn more about that device.”
Stand: “I though you would.” “The instructions and specs will be sent to you e-mail.”   

He pulled out  the device he had carefully hid on his person and looked around for anything that looked like a cell-phone.

Fake wife: "Whats the matter, dear?"
He nonchalantly said:
Dr. Calmer: "I seem to have misplaced my cellphone, you know where it is?
Fake wife: "No! You must have lost it when you had your accident, but I know you don't remember, but I got you a new one." "Here dear."  "I know you would like to call your office,' "And you can't wait to get back to shrinking heads."  "I will go make you some breakfast."  As she leaves the room, he assumes he's being watched, so he goes to the bathroom and cuts off the lights before he puts in the devices which automatically triggers a text to Stand to put his in before he starts talking. Stand immediately responds and then calls him: 
Dr. Calmer: "Hi Stand!"
Stand: "Hi Doc!" "We have been waiting for your contact, when we did not find your body in the demolished building." "You okay doc?"
Dr. Calmer: "Yes!"  "I'm Fine." My-Wife?"
Stand: "She's fine; Safe House, Hi security!"
"I got to go now." "The F.B.I. Told me only to talk to you just long enough for them to get a fix on your location." "A rescue mission is on the way."  "Also they know what's up about this device." "Be sure to keep it out of sight."
Dr. Calmer: "Right, son" "And thanks"
    As they hang up, his fake wife walks in:
Fake wife: "Breakfast is served.;" "Come on down dear!."
Dr. Calmer: "Okay,' "I will be down soon!"

"NEW EPISODES OF THE HEADSHRINKER"

SHORT STORIES AND POEMS PRESENTS: “THE HEADSHRINKER” LAST TIME ON HEADSHRINKER:


The next day:  At the state prison:
Club owner: “Well!” “The good doctor is making a house call in the prison.”  “What kind of answers to think I will give you to any question you have for me.”  He said in a very ferocious tone.
Doctor Calmer: “Whatever I need to know, you will give it to me.” “With or without your cooperation.”
Club owner:  “I am sorry my good doctor, but you caught me at a bad time, I was about to step out for a moment.”
Doctor Calmer: “That will be a neat trick, in a maximum security prison.”
Club owner:  “I am not into tricks.”  “No Dave Copperfield here.”  “However, Maybe and air strike!”
And just as he said “air strike”, “multiple explosions went off all over the prison yard.  Guards were scrambling everywhere. Yelling:  We are under attack!!
To be continued.


Our story returns with doctor Calmer knock semi-unconscious. Fading in and out of what he thought was reality and dreams.  Finally, he woke up in a place he did not recognize at all.

Doctor Calmer: “Where am I?” the doctor said, as he gazed around an elegantly furnished room.
Fake wife: “You’re back home, safe and sound my dear”
The doctor paused for a moment as he recalled the sound of his wife’s voice, right-away noticed something different in the tone.  Turning around to take a look, he noticed it was not his wife, but a good replica, but about 50 years younger.
Doctor Calmer: “Who are you?” …..and where is this place?”
Fake wife: “You are home dear,” and calm yourself, you have been through a lot.”  “A very bad bump on the head, short-term memory loss, and a slight concussion.”
“Lay back down, get some rest, things will make more since in the morning dear.”
The doctor quickly agreed for he though if someone would go through the trouble to fake all of this, they must be watching.  All he could remember clearly was the prison and that loud explosion.  So he laid back down.

SHORT STORIES AND POEMS PRESENTS: “THE HEADSHRINKER” LAST TIME ON HEADSHRINKER:

Owner of the club: “You win this time.., Doc.”  “The war is not over yet,” “It has just begun.”
FBI Agent 1: “Take this thug away, and after interrogations, store him on the coolest ice you can find.” “Another grate mission doc.”  I really wish we could keep you permanently, but I know you have more heads to shrink.”  “Thank you for all you do!”  “And get to the hospital for a routine checkup.”
Doctor Calmer: “Yes, I will.” “Have a good night”
As the seen brakes up, the doctor could not help but wonder what the club owner meant when he said:
“The war is not over yet,” “It has just begun.”
Maybe nothing, or maybe there are more people pulling string that meets the eyes.  As he gets into his car and drives home, those words keep echoing in his mind.  Because of his much disciplined mind, the moment he sees his wife, he calmly shoves it all into his subconscious and hugs and kisses her and they go inside.
TO BE CONTINUED:


     Doctor Calmer’s subconscious tends to invade his sleep that night.  His attempts to hide his concerns from is dear wife, are unsuccessful.  The words: “The war is not over yet,” “It has just begun.”… “The war is not over yet,” “It has just begun.” Keep echoing in his mind all through the night.  Finally his wife awakens him:
“Dan ‘Drew Calmer’?”  She always says when she knows he’s trying to hide something from her.
Wife: “What is it, you have been talking in your sleep all night, and you’re driving me crazy.”  “You might as well spit-it-out!”
Doctor Calmer: “Nothing you should be concerned about dear.”  “I will get it together.”
Wife: “You need to get it together now so I can get some sleep!”
Doctor Calmer: “I will dear”, I just need to go and talk to someone.” “Soon!”
Wife: “Talk to me now!”  “How dangerous is this, ehh, Club gangster?”  “Is he a threat to our family in anyway?”
Doctor Calmer: “Dangerous enough that you do not need to know any more than you do.” “Go back to sleep, and everything will be fine after I get some answers to some things tomorrow.”  He says as he embraces her and kisses her tenderly.  They love on each other for a while and then pass back out to sleep.
The next day:  At the state prison:
Club owner: “Well!” “The good doctor is making a house call in the prison.”  “What kind of answers to think I will give you to any question you have for me.”  He said in a very ferocious tone.

SHORT STORIES AND POEMS PRESENTS: “THE HEADSHRINKER” LAST TIME ON HEADSHRINKER:





Stand: “Wow!” “Doc!”  “You are truly an amazing man!”  “How do you keep so cool under such difficult situations?”
Doctor Calmer: “I like to think that it is not me doing the work.”  “I believe there is a much higher power at work and I am just a tool in his hands”
Stand: “Amen!
Doctor Calmer:  “Your session is up my son.”  “And son, please stay out of clubs.
As the doc leaves his office, he keeps feeling like something is wrong and he keeps hearing the sound of foot steps behind him in the dark shadows of the parking structure.  And then:
Owner of the club: “Well, well, well!” He said as he stands in the shadows shinning a blinding light in the doctor’s face.  “We finally meet.”
Doctor Calmer: “It’s you!”  “You must surrender!”
Owner of the club: “Not a chance!” He says as he fires a shot at the doctor.  He’s hit and he goes down and is motionless.
TO BE CONTINUED:


As the doctor lays motionless, the perpetrator starts to gloat of his seeming triumph over his believed victim. And says:
Owner of the club: “Did you think that you would be able to stop a multi-billion dollar operation so easily?” “Somebody must have told you wrong.”
As the doctor continues to lay motionless, suddenly laser-sight beams start to converge on our perp from all angles, and a voice out of the darkness says:
FBI Agent 1: “I think the good doctor said it plainly.” “You must surrender.”  “You okay doc?”
Doctor Calmer: “Right as rain sir, however it does sting a little.”
Owner of the club: “What is this, I killed you,  Iagggga!” He said as he starts to raise his gun again.
Doctor Calmer: “I would not do that if I were you.” “There are dozens of highly-trained FBI agents behind those beams on your chest, and they will make a hole in you that you could never be able to drive yourself to the hospital to get fixed.”  “No matter how tough you are.”
Owner of the club: “You win this time.., Doc.”  “The war is not over yet,” “It has just begun.”
FBI Agent 1: “Take this thug away, and after interrogations, store him on the coolest ice you can find.” “Another grate mission doc.”  I really wish we could keep you permanently, but I know you have more heads to shrink.”  “Thank you for all you do!”  “And get to the hospital for a routine checkup.”

SHORT STORIES AND POEMS PRESENTS: “THE HEADSHRINKER” LAST TIME ON HEADSHRINKER:




Doctor Calmer: “I see.”  What did you mean by hi-tech?”
Stand: “It is like on Star-trek.” “Some kind super-science working with this club.”  “The club is really a front for the whole operation.” “Prostitution, drugs, sex-slave trade, pornography, gun-running, and money –laundering.”  “All the girls in the club are really hi-priced hookers.” “And when I say high priced, I really mean hi-priced.”  ‘You even have to pay just to look at them.”  “That is where some of the hi-tech comes into play.”  “Each member that wants to see the girls, are issued a special set of glasses that syncs it’s self with you retina and everything you look at gets registered into a database and automatically bills your credit card of bank account.” “However, there is button on the right side of those glasses, and if you hold in down for 3 seconds, it will x-ray the girls close and she will appear to be nude.”  “When one does that, it will trigger a debit from your account for $50.00 dollars, and she will get a text from you on her cell-phone and come over to your table with a bottle of wine to keep you company for the rest of the night, or for however long you want at the rate of $500.00/hr.”
Doctor Calmer: “Wow!”
Stand: “Still think it’s just going to be just a routine operation?”
Doctor Calmer: “No,” ‘my son, this may be over sooner than I thought.’  ‘The more corrupt an organization is, the easier it is to unravel the mechanics of its structure, ‘sort-of like a house of cards.’ “All one needs to do is remove the main supporting cards, and it will all come down.”  “They are criminals, son.”  “Extremely hi-tech, and well-funded, but still criminals.”  “They will never be able to escape their nature.”  “It will fail them every time.”
Stand: “Wow!”  Your strategy sounds good Doc.”  “However, I will still be praying for you the whole time.”  “God-speed!”
Doctor Calmer: “Thank you!”  “I will need all the help I can get.”
TO BE CONTINUED

FBI Agent 1: “This mission is highly classified and totally covert.”  “Extreme caution is a must.”  “Are you psychologically ready Roger for this mission doc?”
Doctor Calmer: “Yes, my team is assembled and ready and mission code alpha-tango-Charlie is ready to be executed at will.”  “The supporting cards have been identified and targeted.”
FBI Agent 1: “Excellent!”  “Proceed to execute mission and report for debriefing in 4800 hrs.” “Roger, over and out.”
Doctor Calmer: “Roger, Roger!”
Doctor Calmer and his team went into action.  Everything happened just as he predicted.  The main supporting cards of the criminal organization was of course, the crooked bankers.  Once the feds got on their case, and started to associate them with drugs, human trafficking, prostitution, sex-slave trade, child—pornography, gun-running, and with gangsters, the cash-flow of the structure came to a Holt. All the clubs were shut down and pad-locked and personnel arrested, in a span of 48 hrs.  However the owner and his son fled the country. Several prominent leaders of the club scattered everywhere to escape arrest.  And just like clock-work, the Doctor was back shrinking heads in now time.  Once again a measure of stability was re-established.  
Stand: “Wow!” “Doc!”  “You are truly an amazing man!”  “How do you keep so cool under such difficult situations?”
Doctor Calmer: “I like to think that it is not me doing the work.”  “I believe there is a much higher power at work and I am just a tool in his hands”
Stand: “Amen!
Doctor Calmer:  “Your session is up my son.”  “And son, please stay out of clubs.
As the doc leaves his office, he keeps feeling like something is wrong and he keeps hearing the sound of foot steps behind him in the dark shadows of the parking structure.  And then:
Owner of the club: “Well, well, well!” He said as he stands in the shadows shinning a blinding light in the doctor’s face.  “We finally meet.”
