FALLING OFF THE EDGE
“She lived a life that some would describe as being on edge.”
Those buffalo nickels were all she had of Jason's. He'd promised to return, but his last deployment to Afghanistan meant she'd never hold him in her arms again.
Teri undertook each adventure they'd vowed to do together. No matter how high the mountain, how hot the desert or how deep the sea, Teri felt no satisfaction or joy.
Then a drunk driver broadsided her car. Before the paramedics arrived, Jason walked out of the mist.
"It's time Teri, are you ready?"
"Will we be together forever?"
He took her hand and they walked away from a crash with no survivors.
