"You know?"

Said someone on the other side of the white curtain...

"No matter what, I'll always love you"

The person, whoever it was, had a kind voice I sort of remembered from a dream, who would say that to an old decrepit woman like myself? that can't even remember her own name, much less the people that used to care for her?

"Do you remember me?"

Asked the voice, and I didn't quite know how to respond, as if my words had been stolen away by the hourglass of time, I wanted to see this person's face, I reached to the curtain and a faint memory invaded me with the need to see the person on the other side.

"I'm an old friend..."

The curtain was then pulled by the person on the other side... now I knew it wasn't a person, instead, it was some sort of creature, with more eyes than I could count, wings on its back, and a tender smile on its face... at first, I wanted to escape, but then I heard the voice again.

"I've always been here for you Avis... It's time to go..."

When the creature took my hand, I seemed to forget what pain was... and suddenly remembered everyone in my life... every memory that I had lost...

Up there, I saw faces that I now recognized as old friends and family... and allowed myself to feel like a little girl again.
