I had lost her. No more tender kisses. No more sitting on the porch swing, holding hands. No more complete Christmas dinners. Only a gaping hole the size of the Grand Canyon. How could I live half a life?
Resentment rose within me as friends and family returned to their cars to leave. My legs could barely move, as if leaving would make her death real, admit defeat in the face of evil. The limousine left the graveyard even though my heart didn't.
