Twenty Three

When I wake up in the morning Nash isn’t there. And a small part of me wishes I could have seen him with bed head, he didn’t leave a note, he just left.

I make a bowl of cereal and sit down on the couch. His blankets are neatly folded and on the table. The couch is put back together and not a single thing is out of place.

It’s like it all was a dream.

He kisses me and turns me into this fumbling mess and I wonder if it’s the same for him too. Does he feel anything?

There has to be a reason he has made a point of doing it two times now.

My phone rings, it’s the shelter. And they are looking for Jackson. When I inform them I don’t know where he is, one of his workers ask me if I can stop by and take care of something that I used to take care of before I quit.

I agree, because a small part of me still holds a special place in my heart for the shelter and all of the regulars that show up there everyday for a hot meal and a place to sleep.

I shower, dress and head across town to the shelter. Walking through the doors is a reminder that Lee is no longer there. I’m used to him greeting me as soon as I walk in. Most days, he was front and center, chowing down on whatever the days menu offered.

He had no funeral. He didn’t want one. He signed his body over to science and just like that he was out of the picture and my life. All that was left of him was a box of my mother’s memories. Some pictures were of him and my mother. But that was it. My grandfather was nothing but a memory.

“Savy.” Julie, one of the newer workers says as soon as I come in the door. “Thank god you came.”

“Of course. What’s the problem?”

“We are running low on supplies and I have no clue when the next shipment is coming in or if more supplies were even ordered.” She hands over her Ipad and I log into Jackson’s account.

“He sent himself a reminder but it doesn’t look like he placed the order.” I hit a few buttons, fill in a few blanks and just like that I save Jackson’s ass. “Luckily, as long as the order goes in by noon they will still deliver.”

She follows me to the back room. “And if you go to the very back of the freezer you will find emergency boxes. I hid them there for times when Jackson pulls this.”

She squeezes my arm. “You are a life saver.”

“No problem.”

I say hello to a couple of people and head for the door but like everything else in life, I don’t make it to my car before Jackson is walking through the doors.

He looks dapper, like always when he is coming from a meeting. Dress shirt. No tie and perfectly fitted slacks.
