Final Deed

in #fiftywords3 years ago

Mara lingered beside the fresh grave. Benji deserved better.

“I saved this.” Rob pressed the collar into Mara’s hand. “To remember him by.”

She fingered it, wiping her face. All that remained of her precious dog.

It was time.

“He’s in our hearts. He’d want to be home. Let’s go.”

Safe ride home Benji.

Very moving. The right state of mind for a loss like that. Home is more than the physical dwelling after all.

This is lovely and sad, @alheath. Beautiful work, as always.

Thank you!
