part 3 of the Roddy series: Roddy

What if she had been able to go to him before it was too late?

When the dreams began, she knew they were some kind of sign, so she should have taken action. Instead, anesthetized by the reality her life had become, she simply thought of him, imagining the possibilities…

She could have found him if she had really tried. The resources were there, if she had only used them.

She could have offered him comfort… and friendship… and love. They could have had a little time together. They could have said ‘Hello…’


And then they could have said ‘Good-bye.’
