It was an early Christmas morning when a young mother woke up. She sat up straight and looked to the alarm. It was just half past five, which was way too early to get up, certainly on a day like this. Before she would go back to sleep, she listened to the baby phone. When she heard the small noises her little boy always made when he was asleep, she knew everything was all right. So she laid down again, causing her hair to be spread on her pillow like a peacock's tail.
"Did you really have to wake me up?"
The sound of her teasing fiancÚ made Anita Knight glance over towards her loving Victor Volt. "I was very quiet."
Victor chuckled and he propped himself up on his elbow. Soon he started to fondle with Anita's hair. "What's on your mind, Anita?"
"Nothing much. I figured that I could get some sleep."
Victor's hand lingered towards Anita's neck. "In my arms, I hope."
"Hm, maybe." Anita closed her eyes and felt Victor's hand going towards her shoulder. "What are you doing?"
