Many thanks to Nekocat for his wonderful Venice Lagoon.

“Oh… Janey; look at all those colorful houses over the water there”.
“That must be Venice Lagoon Val, because the train is slowing down. Oh you’re right; this looks so beautiful with all that water. I really hope that we’re going to stay at this station for a while.”
Jane went to see Daisy and asked her how much time they would have here. Daisy said: “The train will be leaving at 20.00; that means (looking at her watch) that you will have almost 12 hours to explore this place.”

“Oh… Janey; look at all those colorful houses over the water there”.
“That must be Venice Lagoon Val, because the train is slowing down. Oh you’re right; this looks so beautiful with all that water. I really hope that we’re going to stay at this station for a while.”
Jane went to see Daisy and asked her how much time they would have here. Daisy said: “The train will be leaving at 20.00; that means (looking at her watch) that you will have almost 12 hours to explore this place.”
“Are you coming with us Daisy?” Val asked. “No thank you, I cannot leave the train alone. Besides that I have to wait because some groceries will be delivered and they will come and change some furniture, but you can go. Enjoy yourselves”. Valdemar was already dressed to go out. He wanted to have a look around. He asked: “Do you feel like going with us to see this place, Mr. Field?”
“No, I know the place and have to do some business here” and he continued drinking his nectar.
Jane and Val were struck by the beauty of the place.
Val wanted to go fishing but Jane thought that it would be a pity to stay on one spot only.
"So you're sure you don't want to come with me?"
"No Jane, it's been some days that I couldn't go fishing; I really feel like it. I enjoy nature while fishing."
Val prepared for a large fishing session and Jane went walking to have a better look at that suburb with all those colored houses. It was great to notice that the people there were very nice. Some of them invited her in to have a glass of nectar and when she said good-bye to them, saying that she wanted to see the lagoon, that woman told her to be careful. “Why?” she asked. The lady answered that the Simafia could be hiding there in the forest. While walking along the streets with the canals and crossing numerous bridges, Jane thought that she would have nothing to fear because she didn't have anything of value with her. So she walked and enjoyed the place. She had bought a camera and she took many pictures. At midday she had a quick lunch and continued to explore the reeds. It was really very picturesque.She decided to come back for a holiday. She was absorbed by the beauty of the flora and the atmosphere in general. There were seagulls screaming all the time. That sound belonged to this waterland. It was getting hot and she looked for shady places to continue her walk. Certain moment she thought that she heard something behind the bushes; she approached them and saw an old, shabby house. It really looked bad and some windows were broken and closed with wooden planks. It was if though the house was built in this hidden place on purpose; you had to be very close to notice it. She heard some men talking and one of them said: “This has been very satisfactory. We will contact you for another job". She wondered what that would mean and when she heard footsteps on the gravel, she stepped backwards and hid behind the trees,bushes and the rubbish containers. Then she saw him…: Mister Field. What was he doing here? She noticed that he looked around and over his shoulder and then quickly went away. She held her breath until she was sure that nobody could see or hear her and then she went back to the place where she had left her brother fishing. He was very happy because he had caught a lot of fish. Jane told him what she had seen and that she wondered what kind of business Mr. Field had. Val said: “Considering that man’s character, I wouldn’t ask him about it, sis”. Jane agreed with him.
The shadows were getting longer while walking back to the train they saw the moon rising.
When Val showed Daisy all the fishes he had caught, she asked him if he would sell them to her. He smiled and said: “All right but you will have to give me a kiss for that”. She smiled and said: “That’s a deal” and she kissed him on his cheeks.
Wow... Although they didn't touch, Daisy was very close and Val noticed her perfume and the warmth of her body; he almost lost his senses.
After a while, Daisy looked at her watch and said: “It’s time to leave; I wonder why Mr. Field hasn’t come yet. I hope he will soon be there because we cannot wait for him much longer.” When she was about to give the order of departure, Chester Field came walking fast and said: “Sorry and thank you that you’ve been waiting. Can we leave right away now?”
Daisy looked puzzled that he was in a hurry while he had been holding up the train but ‘the client is the king’, so she didn’t respond and gave the order to depart.
Val and Jane wanted to work out with the TV and changed their clothes. On the way to the launch, Val saw that Mr. Field had dropped something on the floor and quickly picked it up. It was a very thick envelope and he saw some money peeking out. He was about to say something but, thinking it over, he kept his mouth shut. While Val and Jane were doing their daily exercises, Daisy en Mr. Field were watching TV.
Jane and Val were exhausted so, after having had a shower they went to bed and fell asleep right away.
“What time was it?” Jane asked herself. It was night and something woke her up. She saw that Val woke up as well. He rubbed his eyes and said: “Hey, what’s the matter… the train has stopped!” Now Jane understood what woke her up. An emergency stop! There was no fire alarm and Val turned around and went to sleep again but Jane was curious. She quietly left her sleeper and stood there looking through the window of the launch where she saw Daisy talking to somebody she had never seen. It would be of bad taste to go there in pajamas so she went back to bed. Tomorrow she would ask Daisy what that emergency stop had been for. She heard some movements in the corridor but then the familiar sound of the moving train made her fall asleep.

Yay, great story!!  Can't wait for the next chapter! \:rah\:  I'm so glad your story was featured! \:wub\: 
On a side note when I can't get the story to work properly, I click on one of the pictures, then go back into it.  The slideshow usually works then.  I don't know why that is...

Wonderful part \:\)

Simafia, lol \:D As for the train stopping and waking up them, I am the type of a person that sleeps best while on the move - a car, bus, train... doesn't matter. It takes me less than 20 minutes on the road to fall asleep completely and I sleep very well while it's going, but the moment it stops I open my eyes immediately. I've always been like that, my mother even says she had to rock the crib constantly when I was little, because I would wake up when she stopped. \:\)

So much fun to read, still enjoying every chapter!  I wonder if the police paid a visit to the train during the stop...?  Think I'll hit the next chapter and find out \:D

#24fabrizioammolloSep 12, 2010
