“Yes.” He replied. “Your short walk home”

“Oh, What a surprise. She giggled”

“Don’t let go so quickly” she replied. “You are not here

“Only in your dreams, I guess” he said, as he drifted into the night.

“Dream men”, she thought. “So very here, then gone”

and with that, she disappeared into his dreams…..
