We sat in the park. Tim was sleeping in the stroller all bundled up nice and cozy. We were like a family.
Aly. I wanted to tell you something.
I held my breath and waited.
I’ve been accepted at Pepperdine. Law. I’m excited.
I’m excited for you Zach.
I love you Aly. You’re so wonderful. He kissed me on the cheek.
I knew it was over. My pain expanded in my stomach. And spread to my chest to my arms, my head. And oozed from my eyes. I dug into my bag. My fingers automatically scrambling, searching for my crux, my pills. I found one.
It didn’t do anything for me. Absolutely nothing. I wanted to die.
PS: I’m attempting here a series of drabble; scattered ideas; snippets from life/lives. If they evoke some spark in you please give a holler 🙂
