An Excerpt in My Soul to Keep

Posted by on August 1, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The miles skidded underneath the car till I stopped

at the spot of my dark transformation. The door

creaked an old familiar song as I stepped out into the

sand. The scenery was a panoramic view of still deep

cobalt blue mountains against a light azure sky. A

child’s giggle broke the silence as I looked to see a

young girl with ash blonde hair running from her

father. He caught her, scooped her up in his arms, and

hugged her close. The wind whipped blonde strands

around my face, and broke my fascination with the

bond between father and daughter. I got the rosary,

shoved it into my pocket, and opened the luggage

compartment and found a small shovel.
