Until Tuesday, Forty-Nine

Rachel Claire

Hardly seems to matter. I think, I feel, therefore I am.

No worse off than anyone else, real or other.

I stand, then head down the stairs thinking of Amelia.

Perhaps for the first time, we can be together, no matter how long or short it may be.

I can’t remember being this excited about anything for a very long time.

I’m trying to be careful and focused, but visions of Amelia at the beach are overpowering me.

I force myself to stop for a minute, then sit on the nearest stair.

Running up the stairs towards me is my little buddy JoJo. I can’t believe it.

I start to believe everything will be all right, as I stand to continue down.

The skies open and rain pours down. A strange feeling of Deja Vu.

Jojo and I descend towards home.
