"Santa Caterina." (来源：EnglishCN英语博客基地)
"It's a deserted monastery, down in the valley. Amongst the fir trees. Over there—look, you can see it."
"Oh yes."She turned her head. When he did look he was shocked to see how beautiful she was, like a goddess.
"Won't that be spooky?"she asked in the slightly broken voice that he had always found so sexy.
God, how he loved her. Why couldn't he just take her in his arms now? That could solve everything. But there seemed to be an impenetrable barrier around her—as if she was sealed away by Tom.
"The valley's dangerous,"said Alan, hoping to frighten her, to provoke reaction."If the clouds come down there's no way out. Sometimes for days."
"Is there anywhere else to camp,"asked Alice.
"Not really."Alan was certain she'd rather be with Tom. Yesterday he had seen them sitting on a wall together outside the villa. Their ankles had been entwined. He had wanted to grab Tom’s legs and pull him off. He would hurt his brother—and Alice would be sorry . It would be her fault.
