    "It’s amazing." Barbara shook her head slowly in disbelief. I looked at her, her eyes wide with wonder making her face light up with an almost beatific joy. In that instant she looked nearly as young as Vicki, such enthusiasm. You couldn’t help but warm to her.

    She was all heart, Barbara. So free with her emotions. I’d often wished I could be the same.

    Barbara would have fallen and hit her head against the sharp corner of the console if Ian hadn’t caught her. They stood there frozen for a few moments. Him holding her, her being held and both of them not quite knowing what to do next. I wanted to tell Ian to keep holding her, to pull her closer, to kiss her, but he would have just frowned at me in exasperation and set her on her feet again. I wonder if they ever did get together? I hope so. I really hope so.

  10. [Barbara] would have hated to leave thinking they’d won, and only found out later that they hadn’t. It was a small consolation, though. [Ian]’d never seen her looking so sad.
