Natalie giggled at the idea. The expression just jumped out of her subconscious mind. While it was stormy outside. It was not night... in fact, the time was two o'clock in the afternoon. "So the term 'night' is not approprate," Natalie said to herself. The darkness was because one of the main fuses to Nick's loft had blown when a bolt of lightning had stuck the nearby power lines. Natalie had gone down to the basement to find the fuse box and see if she could fix it. Natalie had simply needed to reset the breakers to get the power back. As she passed a trunk, she saw a piece of cloth sticking out of it. She opened the trunk and noticed that the piece of cloth was the bottom part of a dress. Out of curiosity, Natalie examined the dress. She noted both its elegence and age. Her first thought was that the dress was Janette. Dark thoughts like //Why that...// and //If she thinks...// came to her mind although she could not bring herself to say them out loud. But the dress, Natalie realized, was too large for Janette's small frame. //Then, who's dress is it?// a part of her mind asked. She had no answer. In mild amusement, she realized the height of the dress would be prefect for Nick to wear... only the hip and the chest area were obvious met to fit a woman and not a man inteferred with the mental imagine.
