FOURTEEN YEARS AGO
Graduation night… Fourteen years ago. That was the last time I had been to the neighborhood park.
My undergrad at Michigan. Graduate work at Sterling. Internships at Brooklyn Med. Now, being accepted at the Mayo Clinic as an internal practitioner.
The dreams we had dreamed as kids all started with the nights we spend in the treehouse.
After all those years, I didn’t really expect to see anything but rotted boards, but stranger things have happened.
I saw a light through the underbrush. Lydia was probably already there.
A young lad with her? He looked to be in his teens?
