Then, I secured my passage,
Packed my trunks, I know, I know, but I told you, I bought alot of clothes!
After meeting all the ladies at the train station, we were shown our rooms, OH MY GOSH, this room is beautiful, this simply can't be the room I booked. The steward assured me it was......hummmm, I'll deal with it later....
After setting things to right in my room, I decided to meet the ladies for some refreshments in the dining room. But no one had arrived yet so I slipped out and thought I'd go to the Card room for a minute, see what's happening.
I just had to show you the gorgeous view of Prague from the train. After the ladies and I had lunch we had decided to take a stroll to see and be seen. We so enjoyed looking out over Prague. We quickly decided to go to our rooms and freshen up to meet up later for dinner.
As I entered my room I saw something sparkle from the corner of my eye. I turned and my dressing table was covered in JEWELS! THE most gorgeous jewels I have ever seen. I quickly turned and looked about but no one was there. I looked again at the jewels and I noticed a note tucked underneath the most gorgeous diamond necklace I ever saw.
It said, "This necklace does not compare to your beauty, but I would be most pleased if you would adorn it and meet me for dinner at 8:00pm, signed "J"" OMGosh! What is going on here. I rang the Steward and he had no idea how these got here. I could have sworn I saw him smile as he turned to leave.
I tried to locate my friends but they were not in their rooms, hump, where would they go and not invite me! I simply HAD to tell someone. After searching for a bit with no luck, I mean the train is NOT THAT BIG I decided to give up. I went back to my room and just stared and fingered the jewels, ok, so I tried them on too. I sat down in my chair and read over the note again. 8pm was less then an hour away. I decided I would take this adventure, since this trip WAS supposed to be an adventure.
I went to the dining car and was lead to a table for two.
I sat with my back to the wall so I could see anyone who entered the room. I was then presented with my dinner, ordered for me no less,
The waiter poured me a glass of champagne
I looked over to the next table, were they talking about me? Is this some kind of conspiracy? WHERE ARE MY FRIENDS?!!!
The mysterious "J" sent a note via the waiter that he was very sorry, something came up and he could not make it. He hoped I enjoyed the dinner and champagne and the waiter said as he turned to leave, "The gentleman said you looked ravishing in that necklace". WHAT! he has seen me? I said to myself.
As I stepped inside my door, I found an envelope. I opened it and there was a picture with a note. "If you need anything, these people are your private servants"
OMYGOSH, this was just too much. I layed down on my bed for a bit of a rest.
Knock, Knock. I was aroused by knocking at my door. I groggily got up and opened my door and there was Janeen standing there. "Ready for dinner?" she said. I said, "Dinner? I already had dinner, come in, look at......" I quickly looked around, where were the jewels? That's ok, there's the card, where was the envelope with the card! arrrg, where was the picture showing the servants! Gone, all of it. Janeen says impatiently, "What's wrong with you, didn't you get my note that dinner is at 8:00pm? Hurry up, it's almost time to go and we must meet the ladies for dinner."
That was when it hit me. I was DREAMING!!!! I had laid down for a bit of a nap after lunch and Oh my, what a trip this is going to be.....
