'Wake up sleepy head' David murmured softly in her ear. He stroked her long auburn hair smiling at the fact that she had fallen asleep, resting her arms on the front of the computer. The mere fact that she had fallen asleep like this was, he thought, a good sign that now she was more relaxed. 'mmmmmmmmm' Laura opened her eyes gradually, taking in her slightly intoxicated state. 'Must have fallen asleep' she mumbled. 'Yes darling! Time to wake up.
You know what a couple of glasses of wine can do to you at lunchtime. You must
have really enjoyed yourself!' Laura looked down at her Jewelled Heart.
'The girls went crazy over this' she giggled. 'They all want one now........' She stopped suddenly, remembering things she didn't want to confront.
Anxiously she gazed at the computer. It was blank. Just a blank window
waiting for the screen to become alive with chatter on command. Warily she looked down at the Jewelled Heart. She carefully untied the silk black cord around her neck placing the Jewelled Heart in the palm of her hand
studying the red crystals one by one. They were all in place. Each and
every one of them twinkling like beautiful blood red rubies.
David watched her curiously wondering what was going through her mind. 'Is anything wrong' he asked hesitantly. ''No.....no....nothing's wrong David.
Let me show you what I was looking at before I unexpectedly fell off
to sleep.' 'Later darling. I think you need a cup of coffee and so do I.
We can have a look later.......and if we don't do it tonight....then we have all
the time in the world don't we?'' Laura smiled. 'Yes' she said, walking away from the computer. 'You know, I had the strangest of dreams!'
'Well, David replied, handing her a steaming hot cup of black coffee,
'this will wake you up. Then you can tell me all about it, if we have time!''
