I couldn't sleep, again! I pulled on my hoody.

It was cool, but not a cold autumn night, moon hung high in the black sky, the remnants of the fallen leaves still blowing about, their smell with that of the city, hung on the air carried aloft by the breeze. Most of the trees were bare and their limbs cast eerie shadows in the street lights.

A figure came towards me. I grasped the mace in my pocket. He was tall, strong looking, and could easily over power me! Both hands were shoved deep in his pockets! Did he have a knife?

As we got closer, I debated on whether to cross the street or keep my head down and walk on.

A gust swirled up, blowing off the stranger's cap which playfully cart wheeled towards me. I retrieved it.

"Good thing you came along!" he replied in a delightful accent that put me at ease. "This was a gift from someone dear for my birthday yesterday."

"Happy Birthday." I said.

"Could I treat you to coffee for saving my hat? " he asked.

We crossed the street and I wondered if I was doing the right thing. He could be luring me in to his trap! But something about him didn't seem threatening, except for the bulge in his pocket! Could it be a gun?

"Do you live nearby?" he asked.

"Moved in last week." I answered.

"Then we're neighbors." he replied. "Welcome!"

"Thanks. I haven't had much time to get out." I admitted.

"I'll have to show you around sometime." he offered.

"I'd like that. Being in a big city can feel quite lonely." I told him.

"I know that feeling, even when you're surrounded by people." he replied.

He pulled his hand from his pocket, producing what looked like a jar of jam.

"It's my Mum's jelly." he explained. "When I can't sleep, I go to this all night coffee shop, have some toast and spread on a little "home". I never seem to have any bread at my place. You should try some! It's amazing stuff!."

"You carry a jar of jelly and I carry," I pulled out my can of pepper spray. "a girl's best friend!."

He laughed deliciously, "I thought you were going to show me a knife!"

We entered the shop and he ordered his "usual", making small chat until the toast and coffee came. He was quite handsome and I was happy he did most of the talking.

We shared the jelly, toast and each other's warm company on this cool fall night. I felt comfortable with him, like an old friend I had never met!

"We should do this again." he suggested. "I could use the company of a well equipped lady on my midnight sojourns."

We both laughed at his choice of words, but I understood what he meant.

I held up my cup.

"To midnight sojourns, good neighbors, and Mum's homemade jelly!" I proclaimed.

He smiled and touched his cup to mine and I saw his eyes! I could get used to looking in those eyes, even over a midnight latte'.

The End or not.

Lisette - Barb has been unavailable to do an update this weekend with real life stuff to take care of - she will probably do one today which will include the voting.

:sad: that sometimes real life takes us away from the fun life at GALS.

Awesome job to all the category winners. Since every category's winner was my favorite that makes it really tough to pick a favorite among them. I may have to consider it a while longer.
