From "The Vanishing" a prequel to "The Raie'Chaelia" by Melissa Douthit

The Vanishing, a Prequel to The Raie'ChaeliaHe suddenly remembered Canton and the games she and he played when they were young.  It seemed as if it were almost yesterday.  “Ghost-in-the-Graveyard,” he continued, “in the wine cellar of the Inn?  You cheated all the time.”  He laughed.  “You really don’t remember?”  Sighing, he finally said: “Ah well, you were pretty young then.”

    She studied him for a moment and then, suddenly, her face lit up in recognition.  “Oh my gosh, no, I do remember!” she exclaimed. 

“Jeremiah?!” she asked and he nodded.  “Jeremiah Maehbeck!  How could I have forgotten?!?”

    He smiled as she said the words and caught a twinkle of joy in her eye at seeing him again.  Then he suddenly realized what had been missing in his life this whole time.  After all these years, he finally understood the emptiness inside of him and realized what could fill it – the only thing that could fill it.  It was her.
