    I will start add a line or two and we will write a novel and be famous!

    Adelaide decided it was time for a new beginning, she was fed up with being the dependable one the lonely old maid sister, she went to a travel agent and booked passage on a tramp steamer heading to Portugal. She packed her bags and left when none of her family could stop her, in the cab on the way to the dock she meets----- add your line here

    Nigel, a tall and handsome man with that look in his eyes that makes you want to throw caution to the wind. It was clear that Nigel was headed on the same steamer. No words were spoken but each new this would be a trip of a lifetime.

    "I am glad you decided to share this cab with me" said Nigel, as he glanced at her with eyes so blue like the ocean that they made her feel like she wanted to jump in. "I believe the fates have ordained that we meet." next line . . .

    Nigel and Adelaide left the taxi together approaching the ship they were stopped by a man who reminded Adelaide of Peter Lorre even his voice was the same. In his hand was a letter he asked them to deliver the letter to the man standing at the top of the gangplank

    But the man at the top of the gangplank looked menacing, even dangerous. Adelaide took the letter and passed it to her friend, Sarina. Sarina looked down at the letter in her hand, and written on the envelope were the words...

    IRS Final Notice. Sarina, seeing that the man at the top of the gangplank was so menacing, decided to put the envelope in her pocket, and find a way to get it to him 'anonymously'. Nigel and Adelaide started to board the ship, when Nigel turned to Adelaide and said "...............

    Adelaide was hesitant. What if he chewed with his mouth open, picked his teeth at the table or talked with is mouth full of food. Would she want to eat all her meals with someone like that? Finally she agreed.

    Surely, someone as debonaire as this man would have manners. As they each left for their respective cabins, Adelaide realized that she didn't even know this man's name.

    Then the light came on, Yes, Yes, it was Nigel. Adelaide gave a sigh of relief that she remembered Nigel's name. When she looked over at the man at the top of the gangplank she noticed he was talking to Peter Lorre..she went....

    "She knows Hans well, and I really hope that Hans will not push her overboard like he did his first 4 wives". He is here now because their life insurances have run out and he's looking for a new, rich wife".

    Sarina's mother died as she was reaching her teenage years. She had to step in and take over all the household duties and became the family drudge. She finally decided to leave so she could start building a new life for herself. One with a handsome husband, money, and sometime in the future a family of her own.

    You must live life according to your own inner voice...but just which one of Sarina's voices will she listen to?

    Sarina's life was a patchwork quilt of missteps and wrong decisions. How was she ever going to sort this mess out?
