Kimmy leaned against the leather headrest and closed her eyes to let the sun warm her face. The small red convertible hugged the coastline as they sped up the winding curves of the Amalfi Coast.
She talked over the roar of the engine and the hypnotic voice of Andrea Bocelli, “I have never seen anything so beautiful.”
Marco brought her hand up kissing her palm. “I have.”
Kimmy giggled and glanced at her husband, his dark hair longer here in Italy, the wind blowing it back and black wayfarers covering his eyes. She reached over to run her fingers through the curls, “You look like a movie star.”
“So do you, Mrs Rossi.” Taking in her sexy chiffon dress that bloused in the breeze as his finger hooked one spaghetti strap and moved it off her shoulder.
She blushed and sighed, “I wish we could just stay like this forever.”
“I wish we could Bella, but you’re going to have to stay here without me for awhile.”
She pouted, “ But I want to come with you. “
“Sorry babe, I need to go alone, but once you catch up I’ll be waiting.”
He slowed the car,stopping at the edge of a cliff; Kimmy peered down the rocks to the choppy but alluring water.
She faced her husband and saw the blood at his temple.
“Oh Marco no! ” Tears stinging as her fingers reached for him.
“Kimber it doesn’t hurt. Nothing hurts, except leaving you.”
“Then take me with you.” She begged.
“Soon love.” He raised her face and kissed her. “ In the meantime just promise me you’ll be happy. All I want is to know you’re smiling while I’m waiting for you.”
Kimmy woke,clutching her pillow, lips tingling and wondered if she’d ever be happy again.
