Mortimer, the yellow Labrador Retriever began to pant when the car he was riding stopped beside another car. Could this really be true, his long lost friend, Lucy, a fancy scarf around her neck, was but a foot away? She too was eager to see me. I could tell from her eyes. They practically lit up the entire universe.
The light was red and I didn't know how much time before it would turn green and our time would be but a memory. We exchanged barks and I knew we were back at the farm where we used to hang out until Lucy got hit by a car. I was so scared then and thought she was a goner, my best friend. She replied to me that she was well and that her scarf hid an ugly scar left from the accident. She was adopted after her surgery because her human parents could not accept her as she was now, limping on 3 legs. Sadnessssss and yet here we were grabbing onto the fun, joyous times we had had together.
The light turned and as the cars pulled away I knew that it was an angel that had given us this sweet connection and memory.
