Magic, Like the Twilight

Twilight in the Nevada desert is something akin to magic. If you go far enough from the city, light pollution is minimal and you have a breathtaking view of the stars. One night, when our down time coincided, we headed east – just Catherine and Lindsey and me. Lindsey liked my stories about the constellations, and I mapped them out for her while I talked. When Lindsey fell asleep, Catherine asked me to continue. I pointed out Perseus, and as I explained how the hero had rescued Andromeda from Cretus, she kissed me. Light, like a whisper. Magic, like the twilight.
