Lea stared at his sleeping husband. His face was pressed against the yellow pillow, his mouth was a little bit open and his arms were wide open at each side of the bed.
Lea sat in an empty spot of the bed and slipped her forefinger in Adam´s back; he had such a beautiful back, so white and masculine...
Adam didn´t wake up, he just shivered a little and sighed in his sleep.
"How odious you should think me", she said in a whisper ", for I have taken away a lot of things from you. What a terrible woman I am! I am nothing but selfish and envious." She laid down her face and kissed his back tenderly.
"I made you quit your friends, your job and Italy. Oh! But I did it because I loved you so much. I took them away from you because none of those things included me. There was no room for me when they were in your life. I am your wife, for God´s sake!"
Adam began to snore and Lea took his hand into hers and said once again: "I am so selfish. Maybe I should have stopped. I know how much you loved those things. I wonder if you ever miss them."
At this point, Lea felt so wrong about herself that she shed silent tears which forced her to let go his hand in order to wipe her tears. She covered her face and sobbed for long, eternal minutes.
Suddenly, Adam turned his face towards her still in sleep. His wife stopped crying and kissed her claddagh ring, then she kissed his lips with love. "How can I be such a fool? I do not deserve you", she continued ", you left all those things because of me; because you love me. You´re the most beautiful angel I´ve ever known. I will not leave you tonight, or any other night. Forgive me."
