Alessandra crawled across the bed to her end to lie down. Her body felt sleepy once again and she could no longer stay awake to ask Edgar any more questions about Jennifer or talk about what they would do tomorrow. The sooner she fell asleep the sooner she could prepare for a day of painting with Edgar.

As her head touched the pillow, Alessandra closed her eyes hoping to fall asleep as easily as she did in the carriage. However, minutes passed and Alessandra found herself still awake. She was most definitely sleepy but it was not easy to fall back to sleep.

"Alessandra," her eyes squeezed shut after the bathroom door squeaked open and Edgar called her name. "I know that you are not sleeping, Alessandra. You are laying too perfect for you to be awake. You move around in your sleep."

"I do not," Alessandra disagreed with Edgar's words. She believed each time he mentioned it, it was an attempt to tease her.
