4. The Sudden Change

i got my breakfast and made my way to the living room. i entered. i felt a sudden gush of emptiness and noticed a big change. Every photograph of Dave was no where to be found. Vigourously, i rose from my seat and observed every room in this house. our home now felt like nothing, i felt like nothing. mummy finally returned. i wrapped my arms around her, tears slowly rolling down my flushed cheeks and making a small patch of tears on her old, blue jeans. These were the jeans Daddy and Dave picked out for mummy on her birthday. She asked me why i was crying. i didnt mention anything about my secret but i asked her.

"Mummy, why did you take down the pictures of Dave?"

she was very hesitant. mummy held her head in her hands. she started crying too. several minutes, everlasting minutes passed. daddy walked in and sat next to mummy. He told us it may have been a hard time for the family but we have to get over things at some point.

i hate to admit it but daddy was right. i got up and made my way to my room...to think independently.
