The Invitation

He stands at the top of the stairs and whistles down to me.SOL

“Hey, would you want to go on a walk with me?”

My heart jumps.

Eighteen years on Sunday and he still does that to me.

I look up at him from below.

I smile.

Stolen time, alone together from this crowded house now that school is out.

“Let me grab my shoes.”
