The chill made Tosh shudder. It was already winter by the time she entered Japan. She hadn't found her family yet but… her teeth chattered.
"You OK?" A beautiful woman, shoulders wrapped in many tattered blankets, looked down at her with concern.
"Me too." The stranger sat down next to her. "We'll get warmer if we share body heat?"
Automatically they held each other close, thin material between them as they hid beneath the mountain of blankets.
She looked at Tosh, her gaze intense. "I'm Martha." Their lips remained close before colliding in a kiss of comfort and hope.
