 After a lengthy time spent in consideration, Samantha replied, “Alright, Maria. I’ll agree to your terms for now. Please, don’t mess up our chances.” The voice came to the forefront and, although not from her mouth, it sounded audible and familiar to Maria’s ears. The two had been together for a long time, which didn’t seem to help their disposition with each other. However, the loneliness dulled along the edges when together and it didn’t take long for Samantha’s excitement to catch up with Maria’s.

“We can consider a different name, if you don’t care for Maria. I’m not picky.” Co-conspirators, the two women turned to face the computer.

“No, keep it for now. There has to be a reason why you chose it, maybe ‘cause it reminds you of Grandma.” Memories passed between them.

A little after eleven at night and neither woman planned on resting. No, no sleep. We have too much to search for. Maria opened a long dictation file from Dr. Lawson’s day in the wav player, clicking continuous playback. While his melodic medical prose rang in her ears, Maria did what she did best and researched him on the Internet using her favorite search engines and people search resources. The more information Maria obtained, the more she craved, her heroine or a super delicious, sexy steak.

A fifteen-year-old archived newspaper article from a high school sporting event jumped out at her from the screen. She printed the paragraph and started a pile. Another site turned out to be a jackpot for graduation announcements from a Washington high school, a Washington university for a Bachelor of Science, and another from the University of Washington-School of Medicine. The articles joined the growing pile proportional to their interest in Luke.

The mouse clicked and she discovered a wedding announcement. Her heart beat a staccato. How dare he? What thoughts had gone through his mind twelve years ago? Disappointed, Maria assimilated the little snippet which created a definite obstacle. To be honest, the phrases came at her from the side, catching her off guard. Her mind raced and darted around different scenarios while her finger continued to push the left button on her technological rodent. Her eyes watered and, on autopilot, sought any reference to his name. Voracious after the evidence emerged regarding his wanderings and infidelity, Maria searched him out.

“I think it’s okay. Think about it, only marriage. We’ve seen it before. Don’t worry about it. Breathe deep—”

“Shut up, Samantha! I can’t think with your stupid ‘happy thoughts’. I’ll take care of her, it’s not ha—”
