“Justin Bieber Comes Out as Gay,” read the New York Times front page. It was towards the bottom, but Luke Evans didn’t see why it was so much of a fuss. He was gay, and did he have a Times article about his coming out? No. Luke was on his way to meet with his new therapist, Chris. Luke went biweekly because of the stress of being an actor.
Luke entered his office. It was fairly low-key, which surprised Luke, as he needed to swap his session with another famous Evans, Chris. Chris the hypnotherapist then appeared in their doorway.
“Luke, come on in.”
“It’s a pleasure to meet you, Chris. I heard you’re Hollywood’s ‘it’ therapist now.”
“Yes, it is true I have many celebrity clients. But being a therapist comes first. It says here that you are in therapy for stress. Can you elaborate, please?”
“Certainly. It’s just that I have a very busy schedule, and I’m a Disney star now, which wraps me up in even more business.”
“I see. And you have coping skills?”
“Yes. These sessions are more to vent, and discuss very specific topics, which I don’t have this week.”
“Okay. Do you want to get rid of all that unwanted stress?”
“Is there a way you can do that?”
“Of course. Hypnotherapy shows promising results for reducing unwanted stress in a person’s life. But, first, did you read the email I sent you?”
“Okay. I want you to lie down and relax. Close your eyes, and listen to my voice. You are getting sleepy. You enjoy the sound of my voice. You want to listen to my voice. You want to obey my voice. Luke, I will now count backwards from 5. When I reach 1, you will be completely under my control, and open your eyes.
“5, you are starting to go under.
“4, you’re getting deeper.
“3, I control you now.
“2, no one else matters but me.
“1, I am your master.”
Luke’s eyes fluttered open, and Chris saw the orange they were hoping for. Luke was a bit of an odd case, as he was already gay.
“Luke, do you have any fetishes?”
“No, master, I do not.”
“Your new fetish is spanking. You will spank the person, not the other way around.”
“Yes, master, I understand.”
“Will you be having any celebrities over soon?”
“Thomas Daley and Dustin Lance Black are coming over, so I can congratulate them on adopting a baby boy.”
“Good. You will spank Tom, and get it on camera. You can find ways to get Dustin out of the picture.”
“Of course, master.”
“And once you film it, you will upload it to the internet.”
“Yes, master, I will do that.”
“Perfect. When I say, ‘wake up’, you will do so, and not have any conscious memory of this session. Your subconscious will remember everything, though. I lock this in with the phrase, ‘Burnt baby powder’.”
“I understand, master.”
Luke’s eyes fluttered again, and the spiral went away.
“Did it work?”
“I think you’ll enjoy the tactic I told you while you were under. And I’ll see in two weeks then?”
“Yes, unless I call. Can you do walk-ins?”
“It’s just me here, but yes, I can do it.”
“Perfect.” Luke left the office. He was mentally planning what he needed to get for his get together, when the thought of spanking Tom crossed his mind. He didn’t object.
