I think I know what it was all about...
Communication may be cut off. Have to be brief. The Japanese have landed. Signora and Patani in Siam, and Kota Bahru in Kelantan have been overrun. They are on the march, and will reach us in a day or two.
I've done what I can, within my authority, perhaps a bit beyond. Will move the folks into the longhouses. Then, just sit and wait. We'll have to see what the immediate future is going to bring.
... BUT ...
My mind is reeling from the phone call I just got: my other brother, who is now the Regent, is planning to flee with our invalid father, the Sultan, to Penang, then on to Singapore.
Penang, the British stronghold. Singapore, another British stronghold.
Does he not see that these locations are highly likely to be the target of the Japanese's attention?
... THEN : *click*
I know what the dream was all about. The Sultan should face this threat here with his people. He will be in grave danger if he were to flee. I need to make sure he stays here. They leave early tomorrow morning. I will have to act fast.
