ME: Sorry I missed your call. Pity party and early bed.
ME: I’m fine!
WALKER: I’m on parameter detail today. Call anytime if you need to talk.
ME: Thanks. Working today too.
WALKER: Thought you were taking it off.
ME: I know. Hiding. Just call me a coward.
WALKER: You’re going to have to face him sooner or later.
ME: Why? He’s just going to leave again.

WALKER: But what if he doesn’t come back next time. Now’s your chance for real
ME: I’ve found my closure, or close enough.
I stared down at the screen with a frown. I hated when he spoke the truth.
