She stood in the hall between her parent’s kitchen and den. Her mother stood, so still, in her little nightgown. On another day Allie would have been embarrassed, blushed a bright beet red. Today, it barely registered. Her mother stood so still, so small.

“Mom,” Allie said, the word coming out in little more than a whispered breath. “Mom, where’s Dad?”

“He’s gone,” she said simply. “Death came, and your father left us. He fought it, but he went still, as we all go, eventually.”

“No,” said Bianca. “There was no fighting to do. It was his time, that’s all. Go, be with Weldon. He will be a comfort to you for now. I need to be alone.”

“Are you sure, Mom?” asked Allie.

“I am. I love you my girl.”

“Mom?”

“Yes, dear?”

“Oh, blessings,” said Bianca. “Out of sadness, joy. Go to her, she will need you. I will be along soon.”
