Description: This short story was written on a visit to New Orleans. Suffering a bad case of jet lag and not wishing to wake my room mate, I sat in the bathroom at 2.00 am and wrote it. It was inspired by a visit to Oak Alley Plantation on the Mississipi just outside New Orleans. It was first published in the Emerald Anthology of short stories put out by Romance Writers of Australia in 2007.
