The Day He Went Away

by Jennifer Millikin


“Life, fate, the universe, they all broke the rules.”

I was the luckiest girl in the world.
I had it all.
Everything I never knew I wanted.
Until one day in June, it all came crashing down.
My best friend, my life, my love. All gone.
I live in the Valley of the Sun, but I’m the darkest storm cloud.
“Heal,” they all tell me. “Move on.”
But how?
One person tries harder than the rest, and I know why.
He was sent to me. Fulfilling a promise he never knew would be this difficult.
He’s full of grief too, but he’s not dark like me. He’s bright and warm.
I can feel his sunshine creeping in, chasing away my darkness.
It doesn’t feel right that I should ever be happy again. But the scariest part of all?
It doesn’t feel wrong either.
