Cold Hands, Beautiful Eyes…

So there they were, Alex and Kassie in his truck cab engulfed by a thick impenetrable fog..  Fortunately, enough light shone thru so that they could still see each other and not be totally in the dark…

Kassie said with a tremor barely noticeable in her voice, “My heart is still pounding from before and my hands are still shaking. I wasn’t aware of it while they were chasing me, and you were battling with them, but now that it’s all over. I can feel the effects…  My hands feel cold”…  As she was saying this, she had extended her hands before her as if to look at them…

Alex reached forward and took her hands in his…  “Don’t be afraid. We’ll be ok”, he said to her… As he looked into those jewel eyes of hers, in his subconscious he could hear the aria. “Che Gelida Manina” from Giacomo Puccini’s opera, “La Bohem”…  She glanced back at him. at first with a look of warmth and gratitude, but then, what…??? As that romantic, soulful aria played in his mind, and as he looked into the face of that angel, Alex knew that she had at that moment stolen his heart…!!!

Kassie suddenly lurched back and retrieved her hands from his and looked away…  When is this fog going to lift…???  I want to get out of here and go home…!!!

And the fog suddenly began to lift…  But, they seemed to be nowhere near home…!!!  They appeared to be deep in some woods…  They were so closely surrounded by trees, that there is no way they could have driven there, let alone try to drive out…!!!

“Where are we…???  What did you do…???  Kassie screamed at Alex…  “I didn’t do anything…  We were on our way to your house…  The fog came…  The engine stopped…  The fog lifted…  I have no idea where we are or how we got here”, He fired back…!!!  “I am as confused as you are”, He added…
