Pearls

“Pearls – symbolic of perfection and hidden knowledge. Wisdom gained from experience. Women wearing pearls are the epitome of grace and poise. The recent change of administrations was a huge benchmark for our country. It was duly noted that the newly sworn in Vice President was wearing pearls, and what an elegant statement it made. She has chosen to do this consistently over her thirty-year career – it is a statement of who she is, and part of her brand. A highly visible mentor for girls and young women worldwide.” Angelica put her pen down. The beginning of a new era, and she will be part of it.

Memories

Pearls

Elena opened the drawer, and took out the black velvet box. She slowly opened the box – her box of memories. The pearls were luminous, caressing each other as they intertwined. No beginning, no ending. Tears came to her eyes as she remembered the night that Xavier had given them to her. It was their twentieth anniversary, and they were celebrating at their favorite restaurant. Candlelight, wine, and the magnificent pearls.

Over the years there had been many occasions to wear them – they had become a symbol of the bond between her and Xavier. A bond that now surpassed death.
