The Night of the Storm by angie1379 reviews
The title says it all. Based on clues revealed in the premiere, I had to revisit this night. "Looking at her awash in the soft glow of a forty-watt bulb, with an expression of such calm peace on her face, more delicate and vulnerable that he'd ever seen her, he knew he didn't have a prayer of stopping whatever was about to happen."
