The nightmare was still vivid in her mind, the blood, the destruction, Brad dragged from beneath the debris. A voice from the hallway bellowed her name. Suppressed to hear her father in-laws voice she began to tremble. What is he doing here? He was away on vacation with his newly-wed wife Miranda, some cruise in the Caribbean until May. Her mental activity raced rapidly searching for a logical explanation why he was just a few feet away? What seized their cruise so abruptly? As revelation struck, she gazed in stark-staring horror! She hadn’t had a nightmare it was reality. Jennifer threw her head into her hands sobbing uncontrollably. Her father in-law dashed to her side; he embraced her silently while she drenched his shirt with her flood of tears. Finally calming her she drifted, immerging into a profound sleep awakening several hours later. Relaxed and serene Jennifer had to know if any news updates were available. Was Brad alive, the bloody body which was hardly recognizable was this the body of her husband Brad? In a state of confused reverie she searched for her father in-law Jack discovering him situated quietly in Brad’s arm chair. He arose upon detecting her footsteps. “Sit Jen we have to talk!” Jennifer thought Jack’s mannerism was unusually calm. He beckoned her to sit again; she obeyed easing herself onto the sofa.
