After the initial shock (and a little embarrassment on my part) we went downstairs to be able to think more clearly about what happened last night. Sean knew how bad Nita was feeling at the moment. “I’ll make us some coffee.” Sean offered. I was in shock still. What on earth could’ve happened?
Not many people were out. Our dinner was excellent, of course I told Barb she could have anything on the menu. What does she get…?? A hot dog! We were having a great time. The more time I spend with Barb, the more I begin to give in to my feelings for her. After dinner and a movie.
The night couldn’t get any better than it was already. The movie was great, well… what we saw of it anyway. After the movie I couldn’t keep my hands off of her. Every time we touched I lost my breath for a moment.
We then went to the park. The night was still beautiful and we talked about all kind of things. Her new found ability, … us… and how happy she was for the both of you.
Fred, she thinks highly of you and spoke of your friendship and what it means to her.
She excused herself to go to the bathroom. God, I must have been in another place and time. She was everywhere, in me, around me, in the air. And then I heard it. Her scream. I’ll never forget it. I can still hear her in my head. She was nowhere. I ran for hours looking for her. She was just gone.
Guys, we must find her now. I can’t bare this not knowing!”
We saw the door slam shut behind him and there seemed to be no way to get in. We decided to just wait for him to come out. Nita said he would see if there was another way to get into the building. All fired up he was ready to take on that piece of slime!
Tell me! What have you done to her? I AM RIGHT! I SAW YOU on our security camera outside!”
“There is nowhere for you to go. You cannot run away and you cannot hide. It is over for you BUSTER!!”
The sun had already set and Nita was not done yet with this Rex figure. They were shouting at each other.
“YOU WILL TELL ME what have you done to her and where SHE IS…NOW!!!!!”
“I haven’t done anything with Barb! Why do you come down here and accuse me?”
When the fight was over Rex confessed he took Barb to the mine.
“Well then you best lead the way! You’ve had it mister, now your mine!” I said feeling very self-confident with both Sean and Nita with me.
I was lagging behind. It felt like it took a real long time for me to catch up. I felt so sluggish, but look at everyone… “Hey…there’s Barb…. What is happening?
They all look… look soooo… happy! Wow look at all the rocks and gems! I hear something. What is that sound?
I was really confused. Barb chatting away with Nita. Rex and Sean acting like friends. Why Barb didn’t even look like she was or had been missing. Is this some kind of joke? What’s that sound? What happened to the lights on the rocks?
… baby crying from the next room. WOW! what a dream THAT was. I need to write that down. Oh Wow.. I could turn that into a story! I have to tell Sean about it when he wakes up, then I really need to call my sister Barb and Nita, oh… and Rex too, but first things first… my little one calls. I should invite them all over. Sean needs to see his brother after all…. Yes I’ll do that.
So they came. Everyone. My sister Barb who is married to Nita, my husband Sean’s brother. My little brother Rex, I still think he has different parents *laughing softly to herself* neither Mom nor Dad have blond hair. Maybe it was the milkman? That’s what we always teased him about…. Oh… and there are my adorable children Holly and Rowan. My very special little family to call my own. Thank god, it was only a dream…………
