Still here. She was still here. She smiled, her long beautiful wavy long blond mane tumbling to one side as she reclined in the back seat of the car looking up into my face -outside, a group of young girls (her sisters? I thought she only had one, older sister) were trying to catch her attention. She looked at me and smiled, made a gesture that meant 'wait' to the girls who were peering into the car through the windows. I had to resist the temptation -she seemed to be inviting me to kiss her, but that was forbidden and would break the spell. She closed her eyes, I moved down, hid my face in her neck, kissed her neck and instantly woke up, awash in a flood of longing for things impossible which never had been there.
