Thus, as Sue and Melissa drifted off to sleep, I “Slept” with both eyes wide open in the dark. As if ordained by the Creator ,Lisa was closest to me, and using her sleeping bag for padding rather than warmth. I slowly rolled over so she was just within an arms reach. I moved my left hand like a crab or spider, inching toward my target, that being her hand. I got an elbow instead. If it was her left elbow she was on her back, if it was her right elbow she was lying on her stomach. I slid my hand up toward her hand. There was no resistance. She was asleep. Her hand was half open. I decided to flip over again, thus putting my right hand much closer. This time I found her fingers outstretched. I was sure this was not by luck or coincidence. I slid my hand into hers; she intertwined her fingers with mine, then curled our hands together. This was the beginning of a two year romance.
