Anything and Everything
“Oh, Lenny,” Tam tries to hide her disappointment. A barge instead of a gondola?
“Ain’t it great? We’re cruising the waterways,” he says.
“I’ve even got some music.”
A heavy-set man steps onto the barge and belts out “La Donna e mobile” so loudly that Tam nearly falls overboard, but Lenny grabs her, pulls her close. She can feel his smile, how happy he is. Inwardly she shrugs. Anyone can get you a gondola ride, right?
A waiter appears with prosecco and a box of cannoli, her favorite.
Lenny raises his glass. “Anything and everything for you.”
