I was still angry with Zia as our plane circled the Fort Myers airport waiting to land. I watched through my window as tufts of grey-white clouds slid past us. I prayed Zia had a hangover of epic proportions. When we arrived at our honeymoon suite on Captiva Island Joe and I went to our balcony, which overlooked the Gulf of Mexico. It was late in the day. Below us, a glorious stretch of beach and above a cloudless sky with birds hovering over the water's edge looking for supper, I'm sure. As the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico in a splendid splash of gold and red, my anger vanished.
