And yet it felt like it should. ―One can‘t argue with that kind of certainty,‖ he said in a smile-tinged murmur. She felt herself grin. ‖ ―The best of us, perhaps,‖ she said archly, getting into the spirit of their game. ‖ She laughed, deep and true, all the way from her belly. She was loud, and uncouth, and it felt wonderful . ‖ ―Yes,‖ she said, her lungs still quivering from merriment. It no longer seemed so sad, that she would never see Rome.

He looked over at her and even leaned forward a touch, his eyes alight with amusement. ‖ She felt herself blush, and this time she knew he could see it.
