OK you forced it out of me lol You are all so smart. Decided to post two chapters today.
"Sara," the person answering the door says, "I never thought I would see you here. Please come in." Sara stood for a minute looking at the only person who truly understood Gil, Heather.
She shivered inside at the thought of even seeing her. She had to admit that she was envious of her and Gil's relationship.
Although Gil had reassured her - and she totally believed him - that there was never anything physical between the two of them, she was still jealous of the, what would you call it? I guess kindred spirits they shared. She was not sure what to call it, but she hoped it was enough to get him to open up to someone.
"What brings you here of all places," Heather said pointing to a chair. "It is Gil," Sara said. "Is there anything wrong?" she asked very concerned.
"He has been having a reoccurring dream. He wakes screaming from it. He says it is nothing but I can feel his heart racing as I hold him and try to calm him," she says.
"What is the dream about?" Heather asks. "That is the reason I am here. He will not tell me." "And you were hoping I might be able to get him to talk to me?" Heather asks already knowing the answer.
"Yes. You have always been able to get him to open up to you," Sara said wishing she had another resource to turn to. "I would be more then happy to see if he will talk to me," Heather told her.
"Sara," she said, "you do know there never was anything physical between Gil and myself. Not that I did not want there to be, that part of him has always belonged to only you."
"He has told me that and I believe him," Sara said. "It is just that....." she stopped herself. Heather smiled, "That you are jealous of the relationship we do have?" Sara just nodded.
"Let me tell you something," Heather said taking Sara's hand, "I would give anything to have a man love me the way he dose you. I have never seen a deeper love between a man and a woman then I have between the two of you. Never let that die."
Sara smiled, "There is not a chance of that happening. I have waited for to long to make him mine." "Then let me give you a piece of advice if I may," Heather said. Sara nodded.
"One time during one of our talks, shortly after my daughters death was solved, he told me that the one thing that he has always wanted, besides you, is a child. Sara, give him a child."
Sara smiled, "Thank you for everything." She stood and took Heather's hand, "Thank you. I am grateful he has a friend like you."
On the drive home some how she felt better about Heather. Arriving at the house she seen she still had a few minutes before Gil would be back from his supervisors meeting.
She went to the bedroom and rechecked to make sure everything was packed for their trip. Then she went into the bathroom took out her package of pills and tossed them in the trash.
"Give him a child," Heathers words came back to her. Checking her calender brought a smile to her face. Their week away came at just the right time for that to happen.
