The Lost Girl

My own childhood was also extremely hazy. There were so many gaps, patches of white that I desperately wanted filled in. I suppose I can see now that I was searching for myself as much as I was her.

The following morning, I placed a bacon sandwich on his lap. He murmured thanks –our conversations having slowed to bare minimum. Looking up at me, his eyes conveying an uncertainty.

“About that bath?”

“Yes, tonight.”

I began to walk away, casting a casual glance backwards. He was doing exactly the same to me. Our eyes met in an awkward stare, and we both quickly returned to our separate activities.

That night, I drew him a bath. I watched as the cool ceramic was filled with piping hot water. Steam rose to the air and into my eyes. The mirrors turned glassy silver as they steamed over.
