Sheridan sat outside on her balcony staring up into the
sky. ‘It such a beautiful night’ she thought to herself as she stretched her arms back.
She heard a noise and turned around abruptly. She saw the
shadow of a man she rushed forward hoping it was her love. She got closer and Christian Hotchkiss came into view.
“Christian! I wasn’t expecting you to come tonight!”
