Claire took a chance that Tony would be done with his work in spite of her early arrival. He answered the door with an odd expression. Grabbing her arm, he pulled her into his home, then stepped outside, and looked both directions, scanning the street to be sure that she wasn’t followed.
“Tony, what is it? I’ve never seen you like this.”
“Sit down, Claire. I have incredible news for you.” His hands were shaking, his voice nervous. He went to the table where his page of the newspaper was and held it in his hands. “This is absolutely incredible, Claire. Do you understand what you have? Tell me more about this Eve.” His voice was excited, louder with each word that left his lips. “This is real, Claire, it is fucking real!”
She sat, staring at him, speechless for some time.
Tony rushed across the room and sat next to her, grabbing her hands. He was losing himself over his news, laughter came from deep within him, then tears formed in his eyes. “I must meet her, Claire. She is a miracle. Think what we can learn from this woman!”
