Emily curled into Sil's arms and drifted to sleep to the old roman song.
Instantly her dreams came to her in vibrant colors and shapes, taking form they became people. She recognized Sil right away, he was standing on a hill in his full armor and bloodied from battle. A woman was at the bottom of the hill, she'd been anxiously awaiting his return and ran to meet him. They embraced as only lovers could, her swollen belly proved positive that they would soon be parents. The couple kissed and finally her warrior carried her home, and laid her down on the bed. Only when his body moved, did Emily see herself lying on that bed with the swollen belly.
She sat up, waking herself from the dream. Sil was still next to her and the effects of the alcohol had all but worn off.
"I just had the strangest dream" she confided in him. "Sil, when I asked you before, if you had a family, back in Rome, in the past...were you telling the truth? I need to know."
