I used to fly on the pale wisps of cloud
In the bright sunny skies of a spring morning,
Revel in the crisp beauty of winter,
Watch in awe as the rain pattered
And the leaves fell with majestic grace
To the plentiful earth below.
I used to be young.
I would run,
Racing the hawks above me
In the stunning desert sky.

Sit by the ocean and let the waves lap at my toes
And stare at a rainforest forever,

This had been done in a hurry, and the killer didn’t have the time to clean up after himself like he usually did.
Across the room, the phone rang. The shrill sound set my teeth to grinding, but I ignored it. Instead I followed the killer’s bloody footprints into the back bedroom. He’d climbed out the window. If I hurried, I could catch up to him and end this disgusting spree he was on.
Then the answering machine kicked in. “Hi, Gramma! It’s Red. Sorry I’m running late. I kind of lost track of time. But don’t worry. I packed the picnic and I’m heading out the door right now. Love you.”
