R At thirty four he appeared to be more physically fit than he. had been at twenty four His home gym was well equipped A per. sonal trainer came to his house three times a week. On that Wednesday morning in September in his bedroom. when he drew open the draperies and saw blue sky as polished as. a plate and the sea blue with the celestial reflection he wanted. surf and sand more than he wanted breakfast, He went on line consulted a surfcast site and called Samantha.
She must have glanced at the caller ID readout because she. said Good morning Winky, She occasionally called him Winky because on the afternoon. that she met him thirteen months previously he had been afflicted. with a stubborn case of myokymia uncontrollable twitching of an. Sometimes when Ryan became so obsessed with writing soft. ware that he went thirty six hours without sleep a sudden onset.

In that myokymic moment Samantha had come to his office to. interview him for an article that she had been writing for Vanity. Fair For a moment she had thought he was flirting with her and. flirting clumsily, During that first meeting Ryan wanted to ask for a date but he. perceived in her a seriousness of purpose that would cause her to. reject him as long as she was writing about him He called her only. after he knew that she had delivered the article, When Vanity Fair appears what if I ve savaged you she had. You haven t, How do you know, I don t deserve to be savaged and you re a fair person.
You don t know me well enough to be sure of that, From your interviewing style he said I know you re smart. clear thinking free of political dogma and without envy If I m not. safe with you then I m safe nowhere except alone in a room. He had not sought to flatter her He merely spoke his mind. Having an ear for deception Samantha recognized his sincerity. Of the qualities that draw a bright woman to a man truthful. ness is equaled only by kindness courage and a sense of humor. She had accepted his invitation to dinner and the months since. then had been the happiest of his life, Now on this Wednesday morning he said Pumping six footers. glassy and epic sunshine that feels its way deep into your bones. I ve got a deadline to meet, You re too young for all this talk about death. Are you riding another train of manic insomnia, Koon 9780553807134 3p all r5 qxp Koontz 10 15 08 11 43 AM Page 5. YOUR HEART BELONGS to ME 5, Slept like a baby And I don t mean in a wet diaper.
When you re sleep deprived you re treacherous on a board. I may be radical but never treacherous, Totally insane like with the shark. That again That was nothing, Just a great white, Well the bastard bit a huge chunk out of my board. And what you were determined to get it back, I wiped out Ryan said I m under the wave in the murk grab. bin for air my hand closes around what I think is the skeg. The skeg a fixed fin on the bottom of a surfboard holds the. stern of the board in the wave and allows the rider to steer. What Ryan actually grabbed was the shark s dorsal fin. Samantha said What kind of kamikaze rides a shark, I wasn t riding I was taken for a ride. He surfaced tried to shake you off you rode him back down. Afraid to let go Anyway it lasted like only twenty seconds. Insomnia makes most people sluggish It makes you hyper. I hibernated last night I m as rested as a bear in spring. She said In a circus once I saw a bear riding a tricycle. What s that got to do with anything, It was funnier than watching an idiot ride a shark.
I m Pooh Bear I m rested and cuddly If a shark knocked on the. door right now asked me to go for a ride I d say no. I had nightmares about you wrestling that shark, Not wrestling It was more like ballet Meet you at the place. I ll never finish writing this book, Leave the computer on when you go to bed each night The. elves will finish it for you At the place, She sighed in happy resignation Half an hour.

He pulled on a pair of baggies with a palm tree motif. His collection included a pair with a shark pattern If he wore. them she would kick his ass Figuratively speaking, For later he took a change of clothes on a hanger and a pair of.
Of the five vehicles in his garage the customized 51 Ford. Woodie Wagon anthracite black with bird s eye maple panels. seemed to be best suited to the day Already stowed in the back. his board protruded past the lifted tailgate windows skeg up. At the end of the cobblestone driveway as he turned left into. the street he paused to look back at the house gracefully sloping. roofs of red barrel tile limestone clad walls bronze windows with. panes of beveled glass refracting the sun as if they were jewels. A maid in a crisp white uniform opened a pair of second floor. balcony doors to air the master bedroom, One of the landscapers trimmed the jasmine vines that were. espaliered on the walls flanking the carved limestone surround at. the main entrance, In less than a decade Ryan had gone from a cramped apartment. in Anaheim to the hills of Newport Coast high above the Pacific. Samantha could take the day off on a whim because she was a. writer who though struggling could set her own hours Ryan could. take it off because he was rich, Quick wits and hard work had brought him from nothing to the. pinnacle Sometimes when he considered his origins from his cur. rent perch the distance dizzied him, As he drove out of the gate guarded community and descended.

boats were docked and moored in the glimmering sun gilded. water he placed a few business calls, A year previously he had stepped down as the chief executive. officer of Be2Do which he had built into the most successful. social networking site on the Internet As the principal stock. holder he remained on the board of directors but declined to be. the chairman, These days he devoted himself largely to creative development. envisioning and designing new services to be provided by the com. pany And he tried to persuade Samantha to marry him. He knew that she loved him yet something constrained her from. committing to marriage He suspected pride, The shadow of his wealth was deep and she did not want to be. lost in it Although she had not expressed this concern he knew. that she hoped to be able to count herself a success as a writer as. a novelist so that she could enter the marriage as a creative if. not a financial equal, Ryan was patient And persistent. Phone calls completed he transitioned from Pacific Coast. Highway by bridge to Balboa Peninsula which separated the har. bor from the sea Cruising toward the peninsula point he listened. to classic doo wop music younger than the Woodie Wagon but a. quarter of a century older than he was, He parked on a tree lined street of charming homes and carried.
his board half a block to Newport s main beach, The sea poured rhythmic thunder onto the shore. She waited at the place which was where they had first surfed. together midway between the harbor entrance and the pier. Her above garage apartment was a three minute walk from.
