"Good morning, " she said sweetly, peeking at me with only half of her right eye open. The left eye was shut tight to prevent any light from coming in as it had been on the bus.

"Good morning. I got some breakfast for us, it's on the table."

"Thank you, " she replied, still half asleep.

"Do you usually sleep this much?"

"I think so, " she said, getting lost in thought for a while. "I don't have a watch. I wake up when I wake up, " she explained.

"Are you often late?" I asked her.

She pressed her index and middle finger to her temple, smiled and said: "I can't be late if I don't know what time it is."

That made sense. You can't be late or oversleep if you don't know what time it is in the first place. That's clever, very clever.


168 - Gwen

Ria was in my dream last night. She was wearing a dress with a flower pattern. This was strange because she didn't wear dresses often and sometimes complained that her legs looked too pale, although they didn't. She was in China, I think, and she felt at home there. She looked at her hands and then started drawing what looked like a map, she was noticeably ecstatic but at the same time, clearly distressed.

I don't know what time it was when I woke up but I do know that Bruno had brought something for me to eat and the black dog was wagging its tail again when he saw me getting up. I wasn't really hungry but it was nice of him to bring something for me, so I ate anyway to show my appreciation. That's what Ria used to do. Bruno is my Ria now.

The black dog got up too and stared at me while

ing on the phone, she would probably kill me if she found out she was on speaker with two strangers.

I borrowed the pen and paper from the woman and wrote down every detail about the island Mia could have been in. Before hanging up, I told Gwen to stay put and wait for my email. Talking on the phone may feel uncomfortable so an email was the way to go. I'm not a big fan of phone calls myself, most of the times we couldn't hear each other well and end up shouting, "Can you hear me? Can you hear me?" In these cases, Gwen just kept quiet and said, "Yes, " rolling her eyes in annoyance.

While talking to her, I could sense something in her voice. There was serenity. She was peaceful, and she was at ease. She was probably satisfied to be wherever she was at the time, which was why I chose not to rush her or tell her to come to me. Besides, she could get arrested if she came, and also, the island where Mia was could be closer to her than it was to me, so in that case, it would be better if she went straight there and I met her there later.
