EXCERPT FROM SNOW
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The last few days had been anything but perfect, maybe perfect was too strong of an adjective, the last few days had been more than exhausting.
January closed her eyes for a moment, reflecting back on their conversation. It hadn’t gone well, with Jack storming out of their high-rise apartment.
This had been more than two days ago and she still had not heard from him. She knew he would be mad, but he was more than mad, he had been furious.
She remembered when they had first visited the city of San Francisco, now their home. She and Jack had just gotten married. He had applied to the city as an Engineer, just on a whim, not really expecting to get the job, but he had.
She couldn’t have asked for a better life, now that Jack was clean. But now it seemed their perfect, picturesque life had shattered into a million different pieces.
Tears slowly spilled down her face, as she quietly opened her eyes. It was a dreary, over-cast day, but when wasn’t it over-cast in the city.
Looking across the bay, she watched as the tour boat took the nostalgic guests across the ocean and over to the Rock…Alcatrass, making her ponder…had she made the right decision telling Jack. Only time would tell.
“Please Jack, come home to me.” She whispered.
