I walked over to my record player and turned on Glen Miller's "In the Mood" and sat down at my vanity. The person looking back at me looked so sad, so depressed. I didn't know myself anymore.

The day was coming around again and I would make my usual trip to the graveyard and place yet another white rose on the stone.

I looked down at the locket around my neck and opened it. My beloved Henry looked back up at me. Around the same necklace was my engagement ring. I wish I could have worn it longer than the short while that I did.

I would give anything to be back with him.

******

The date was December 1, 1941; Henry and I were having dinner at the local dance hall. Henry was supposed to ship out the Hawaii the next day so we decided to have one good last night together.

The band played "Sing, Sing, Sing" by Benny Goodman. We got up and started swing dancing to the upbeat music. The club was packed that night, all the sailors that were shipping with Henry was crammed in.

The band finished the song and I started to make my way back to my seat to catch my breath when Henry grabbed my arm,"Wait just a second love."

I stopped and turned back to look at Henry but he was no where to be seen. Then I heard his voice on the speakers. "Excuse me can I have your attention?"

I turned to see him on the stage, he looked so nervous. I walked up to him and tugged on his jacket, "Henry come on get off the stage."

"Just a sec, love come up here." He said leaning down towards me.

I shook my head then got up on the stage to stand next to him, "What are you doing Henry?"

"Jillian, I love you so much, and I wanted to do this for such a long time, and now seems to be the perfect time." Henry said getting down on one knee.

"Marry me!" He said. He opened the box and reveled a beautiful square cut ring.

I wanted so bad to scream yes but i could not talk, so i just nodded many, many times.

The crowd clapped and hooted as Henry placed the ring on my finger.

*****

I woke up and made my trip to the graveyard and placed my rose on the stone marked Henry Wilson. I tried so much to cry but nothing would come.

If I could only cry for you Henry, I would, I would cry an ocean for you.

I started to make my way back to my car when I spotted some more mourners walking to a different stone. I remember seeing them everyear when I visit. They have aged every time I see them, however I haven't.

The one lady stopped short and looked over at me. I tried to look away not to bring attention to myself.

Please just keep going, don't bother me.

The girl changed her path and walked right up to me, "Why do you always look the same?"

I just kept my head down and kept walking to my car, "Just let me be please." I told her.

Her companion walked over to her and started to pull her away. "No! Why does she always look the same? Its not fair!" She shouted.

I was about to my car when she grabbed my arm,

She should not have done that!

I turned and flashed her, my bright wide smile, and hissed through my teeth, "It's none of your business!"

I quickly got into my car and drove out of there in a heart beat.

Great now I have to leave, I have to get far away from here.

When I got to my place I quickly grabbed all my clothes I could fit in my bag and left. I only took what I really needed. I stopped to face my tiny house for one last time.

*****

I went to the airport and purchased a one way ticket to Italy. I always wanted to go there. It was the perfect time also, I was the rainy season, I would have no trouble fitting in.

On the plane ride I made my mind up and decided to no longer ignore my powers, and I would be a free spirit. I looked through a magazine left on the seat next to me. I saw the clothing and the hair style that the models were wearing.

I first have to go shopping then do something with my hair.

After the plane ride I made my way to the all the stores and purchased new clothing, and then went to the salon. I told them to do the latest fashion thing to it. It took about two hours, then when they were finished they turned to to see the mirror.

I looked at myself, I loved the person looking back at me. She was beautiful and didn't remind me of the sad person I have been for so long.

The stylist looked at me,"Bene, facciali fradiscono?" (Well, do you like?)

"Si, lo amo" (yes, I love it) I told her.

"Grazie, arrivederci" (thanks, bye) I paid the girl and left to find a hotel and rest.

****

I took a quick cat nap and got ready to go out and experience the night life. I walked up the street to find a club pounding with a quick beat. I walked in and had a flash back of the last night with Henry.

I shook my head to forget the vision and made my way into the middle of the dance floor. The music swam around me and I danced with it. I saw a guy a few yards away from me and locked eyes.

I kept danceing more hypnotic and he danced over towards me in a trance, I danced all around him.

I have him wrapped around my finger.

I turned with the music and spotted a very beautiful man looking at me. He looked like he played sports, he was very muscular and tall.

I let my powers over take me and saw that he was just like me, I looked at his eyes with another quick turn, they were bright red, nothing like mine though.

Eventually I got tired and left the club, I made my way back down to my hotel. It must have been early because the lobby was empty. I went up to my room and unlocked the door.

I walked into my room and saw a tall shadow casting up the wall. "I wondered how long it would take you, Felix."

The shadow walked towards me, "How do you know my name?"

I just laughed at him.
