to Rome by Bruce Seymour. Goodbye, goodbye, She responded with a 1/4 smile. Ted tried to wink back, which looked like a slow blink. Sarah's favorite wink in the world. The bus was hot. 10 years ago, Ted would have been boarding a jet, instead complaining about the air conditioned chill in business class. Today, the bus was McGee with a vinegar tang, and still, Ted smiled in full. He was on his way to a job interview at Paradigm Optical. The six hour bus ride to the D C station would bring him within walking distance of their corporate headquarters.

Not this week, Sarah said. Tell the gang. I said Hello, We'll do, Shelly grunted as she talked her overloaded cart and headed to the gourmet cheese I'll Sarah let out a long breath as she looked through the frosted glass store to a luscious pint of vanilla, being espresso swirl, then empty handed and sullen, she left
