Peter watches her like a hawk. The conversation earlier with his wife is still fresh in his mind. She is worried about all kinds of lies around her. This woman had taken her on a dead run away from the car that followed them. Now she is gone. This woman in front of him is apparently also not what his eyes are telling him.
“As a family we moved constantly around. Within my lifestyle snakes found their way towards me. At first I was mostly quiet and obedient; qualities I learnt from the one person I trust in this world. Our lives are sometimes so entwined and it’s mostly my fault.”
“What does this have to do with Sammy?”
“My choices mostly make me moody, resentful and downright irresponsible but once I am on this path I messed up creating that which was already within my cousin, fear.”
“What does Sammy fear?”
Peter is impatient. He feels like wringing the truth from her. However, forcing patience
Sammy wake in the middle of the night. She slips from her bed and stand in front of the window. The moon is full and bright. For the strangest reason she just keep looking at it. There cast in it brightness she sees the silhouette of the man she is searching for.Peter sit in his chair outside in the open air. His sadden eyes found the moon tonight very intriguing. He has the instinctive sense his beloved wife is looking there tonight searching for a way to him.“My love, where ever to you found yourself, I hope an angel is guarding over you. I miss you every day I count the minutes of every hour waiting for the moment in time I found you again. I miss you my Sammy.”“Peter!” the name burnt through her mind, her heart echoing empty silent tears streaming down her cheeks.Sammy lay coiled beneath her bedcovers finding herself in a simmering kind of slumber. The thoughts of desire flow through her body awakening the dream deeply seat
Sammy become aware that someone is looking at her. Sitting upright in the middle of her bed her eyes searched the bedroom carefully. The space is darkened except for the moon that peeked through the half drawn curtains.Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary but she still feels the intensity of the eyes. She definitely wasn’t alone. Throwing the blankets from her body she reaches out to switch her night light on. Pulling on her gown she stands in the middle of the room frightened but strangely stubborn. She tries sensing from where the ominous looks are coming from. Her door is shut so there must be something else out of character in here.The watchful eyes continued looking at her. The very arrogance of it all made her angry.Looking around in her bedroom, everything is basic in its necessity. Moving towards her wardrobe she opens the door wide clothes that apparently were hers was hanging there. Reaching deeper inside she feels the back looking for a f
Peter come running down the stairs but only the echo of the slammed door greeted him downstairs. He opened the door but the street is empty.“Sammy! Where on earth are you?”Sammy has taken TheoFista to the highest hilltop in Steinkopf. Down below them is the tableau of tourist chalets. The springtime is rolling past it was nearly summer.“I grew up surrounded by buildings.” says TheoFistaSammy looks up into the clearness of the sky. A longing so deep suddenly takes hold of her leaving her breathless with an unexplained ache that threatens to swallow her.“At first glance, this really is a harsh, vast but rather uniquely region. What nature offers here you rarely found it somewhere else, The Northern Cape is yours to discovery in many ways that would delight and fascinate you,”Sammy speaks with a pride that isn’t lost on her friend.“Don’t get me wrong but I wish my brother is he
Sammy opens her eyes completely unaware she is in a sleep-form of trance. Her feet lead the way towards the graveyard. With a subconscious secure step she found three graves. She stands there looking without comprehending.The storm that seems to subside earlier found strength to gather the clouds fiercely together again. It is almost like nature feels the intensity of her turbulent emotions, feelings she as yet seemed unable to understand.Sometime pass while she just stand there looking. When the first of the raindrops landed on her head somewhere deeply within her she know she must move. There is a kind of aggression in nature finding a link within her. Her feet doing the walking on its own towards the place she knew as home.Sammy opens the front door standing within the open frame. Lightening is playing behind her, while rain is pouring down on top of her. She just stands there waiting. The images within her mind were a kaleidoscope of distorted frames.
Sammy opened her eyes. She saw him standing within the shadows on her bedroom’s corner. She instantly sat up straight looking intently at him.“Who are you?” she whispered.“My intent the first time I saw you was rather harmful. I had watched you and came to another conclusion. It’s never too late in a man’s life to change his ways.”“What is your name? Are you part of my waken demons? I can’t seem too distinguished between what I know to be right and what a lie is.”“Sammy trusts your instincts. I promise it won’t let you astray. You and I are connected.”“In which way if I may ask?”“Your cousin Charlie she is my wife but a deed or two made her took flight from me. I love her and want her back.”“What do you want from me?”“Just a conversation to set me straight you see for a long time I lived a certain way
A burst of wind seemed to want to rip the roof from the house. This seemed to startle her seriously. Instinctively he reached for her. He held her firm afraid she might be cast away before his eyes. The heaven’s opened pouring serious buckets of water on top of the roof. He reached out again and bodily took hold of her before placing her now in the middle of the bedroom he was currently using; she was still wet and really cold.Sammy looked at him with the strangest expression trying to place him somewhere in her memory. Nothing seemed to click but there was something magical about him. She found her fascinated with him. Like a wide-eyed child she watched him moved about preparing what seemed to be a hot bath. He came back to her.“May I?”She simply stood there watching him with the silliest smiles suddenly wanting to kiss him. The moment she realized his eyes were twinkling she blushed.“I would like that very much but I think yo
Peter woke in the middle of the night finding his arms were empty. Like a bolt of lightning he was from the bed searching the house but finding no trace of her. Returning to the bedroom he dressed then left the house. The night was rather chilly but filled with stars. Getting into his car he drove to the house she thinks of as home. The place was darkened though and this even though it was night didn’t set well with him. Circling the house to his surprise he found a light burning and the window was slightly ajar. Careful not to disturb whoever was in there he took a peek. Sammy sat in the middle of her bedroom just staring at that rucksack of her. Very carefully he opened the window wider before lifting his tall frame through the opening. He knelt behind her wrapping his arms around her. “Hello my handsome.” She leaned back into his arms. “Why did you leave me?” He queried keeping the worry from his voice. “I had to search now I am los
Sammy reached the place she called home. Standing right in front of the house her mind was a burning whirlpool of conflict. She took flight from this house as a dowdy duck. She carried silhouettes with her. Tears of yesterday were part of her life.She heard echoes on stormy nights. Moonlight shadows were cast over her but she remembered the sizzling of her blood. It was more than a memory. Her future was cast all she had to do was find the path. She was taught long ago…“Against all logic or reason the heart would know the face belonging, the name would follow to be written. Within the stars everyone was destined to meet their soul mate. It was foretold…kismet. Peter William. Are you reality or fantasy?”The name burnt through the essence of her being. The intensity of it all allowed blackness to settled over her.Sammy sat motionless in the garden. She wore a far away expression. When she woke this morning she came to the concl
