“Hey Phebe. Yeah, you heard right. Weldon and I are done. No, I’m sure it’s the right thing to do. I just couldn’t, you know? I need to be with someone who won’t keep secrets from me. But the big reason I called is Mom.”

“She’s a wreck, Pheebs. Everyone said, ‘Give her time, give her time,’ but it’s been months, Phebe. Months. And she’s not getting better.”

“She wears the same grubby sweatshirt all day, every day, and just sits and stares. We’re losing her, Phebe.”

“Oh, I totally wish I could come home, Allie. I don’t know what to do either. We can’t lose Mom, we just can’t.”

“Hey, weren’t you and Weldon going on some fancy vacation?”

“Ug, don’t remind me. We were fighting about why I couldn’t leave Mom to go with him even before the whole Army thing happened. Seriously, how did he think I could leave her at a time like this?”

“Sure, the reservations are in my name, why?”

“Why not take Mom on the vacation? It’d do both of you some good, you know. I’m sure you’re bordering on exhaustion yourself. There’s no sense in a good trip going to waste.”

“You know what? I will take her on that trip. I will.”

“I have to do something, Phebe. We have to bring her back.”
