Susan wasn’t there when Ralph woke up. “I really blew it this time. I guess we are headed to divorcing.” Muttered, Ralph.
He walked into the kitchen to utter silence. Ralph found an empty coffee pot. Nothing was out for breakfast. A note from Susan was founded.
“My dearest Ralph, I’m with Chief Day.
He flipped the piece of paper over. Nothing. “Remain calm, Ralph.” He said to himself.
Within minutes the front doorbell rang. Ralph opened the door to be greeted by Bert and Bea. Their waggy tails and barks of joy broke the silent home. Gretchen, Cora, and Grace followed.
“Ladies, it’s 6:00 am.” Said, Ralph.
“Susan texted us last night.” Said, Cora.
“She stated you’ll be lost this morning. By the looks of this kitchen….” Said, Gretchen.
Gretchen busied herself in preparing the coffee and breakfast. Cora placed Grace in her playpen. The living room was temporary. The baby monitor was turned on and in the kitchen.
A text message was sent to Ralph.
“We are on our way.” Said, Chief Day.
Gretchen came back into the kitchen with a laptop. “This screen is easier for all of us to read.” She said.
“She knows.” Mumbled, Ralph.
“My world will never be the same without, Susan.” Whispered, Ralph.
