After leaving Diane at her room, I retired to mine. I was accommodated in a luxurious suite with a balcony facing a deep and calm lake. In the tranquility of the night, I silently stared at the gloom lingering over the composure of the water beneath. On the other bank, a long highway road laid stretched from one end to the other end, parallel to the lake. Vehicles passed infrequently, producing distant and scarcely audible hones through the road, which was dotted with intermittent streetlight posts. Somewhere in the distant sky, I heard the shriek of an unknown bird at night, which followed the reply of its mate.
Gazing at the dark, yet beautiful infinity that lengthened in front of my eyes, I began to recollect the events I met Diane.

Suddenly a voice from our gang rose loudly,
“It’s a Black Dog!” That voice was distinguished by cheer and vigor.
“Yes that’s it”! He agreed. “It’s a Black Dog Scotch Whisky. More precisely, Black Dog 21 year old. A mixture of several natural, tantalizing and tickling aromas. Its smell is a perfect herb for the soul. Totally attractive, and sensuous. The combined fragrance of soft peaches, citrus fruit, coupled with pear, marzipan and bergamot”, he became poetic for some moments.
Suddenly he asked, “Well who said, it was Black Dog?”
Everyone looked at the point from where the sudden declaration came. A beautiful lady, clad in a very elegant attire, looked at all of us, presenting us a very beautiful smile, cheerfully!
