Sounded good though

January 2003

The next day we were back to normal. She spoke to me as if nothing had happened, entirely forgotten. 'Say something sweet' she said.
'Oh..... umm.... how about....... sugar?'
'Honey, say you love me'
'Ok... you love me'

We were laughing again and planning our time together for Chinese New Year. 'we should go somewhere for travelling' she said. 'Let me see, Chinese New Year is on the Wednesday, then we could have go somewhere else, you might be bored, a whole week in Hong Kong'.
'I doubt that, but a trip might be nice'
'Where would you like to go? How about Taipei? Or Bangkok? You never been there, right? Maybe we could join the tour, get a better deal, let me check with the agent'

'Will that be ok with your mother, I thought she wanted you home for the new year?'
'Oh honey, she is flexible, and she knows you are my first priority.'
'Ok, if your sure'

'Sister will be in Hong Kong for new year, with her boy friend. she says they will marry in August'
'So will I meet him?'

This was a bit of a worry for me, since he was a fellow westerner, and male of course, and it occurred to me that he may notice a little of my disguise, or at the very least, ask awkward questions. I already thought that Maggie's sister didn't entirely trust me.

As I drove the car home that night, I had plenty of time to think, the traffic was heavy as always. What could he find out? He might have suspicions; so what? I wasn't going to admit to anything. I had my story pretty straight by now. On balance, it didn't seem to be much of a threat. Anyway, I'd already made plans. All I had to do was get my flight booked.

A trip to Taipei sounded good though.

Lucia is a minor character, she has featured before, but some time ago.
The whole story is one of disguise.
