Sitting quietly on the ramparts of the castle fingering the necklace around my neck. My lovely family heirloom gold and green so glad I put it on this morning before we took this trek.
We had taken this trip to Italy, my husbands gift to me, a thank you the little life that is growing inside of me.
Now do you remember the tale I told before of how I met my namesake from hundreds of years before.
Yes it was back in England on my family’s estate, don’t get the wrong impression we have nothing but debt upon our plate. I had been spending too much time on the internet working on my family tree,it had started as a bet. Something strange had happened on a picnic with some friends. I had somehow slipped through time and met my ancestor who even shared my name we both recognized each other as we both looked just the same.
Carmel had seen my necklace she had wanted it at once, I had of course let her see it. The light in her eyes as she looked at the green stone set in gold showed me how much she loved my necklace. I let her examine it and she seemed to think it had been made at a place near by, which at the time had made me smile.
At the end of our time together as I stepped back almost into my time I saw her husband , a knight true and proud. He had bought her a the present of a necklace, the image of mine. He had bought her the present because she was expecting a baby.
It was all so strange because I too that same day had discovered I was pregnant. Here I was sitting the Tuscan sun day dreaming thinking back to that day. I just felt I was about to slip through time again I had that luscious warm feeling of time sun and being, melding. Then just as I was about to slip through time I could just see some figures coming towards me.
When “Come on dreamy head I am taking you to lunch! ” Oh! well I thought what ever that was it will have to wait.
