As I waited, the sad-ass country song playing
registered, adding to my depressing mood. Twisting around on the stool, I
leaned against the bar’s rounded edge, resting both elbows along the top of
the wood as I surveyed the small crowd.
A few familiar faces nodded my way before turning their vacant stares

a smile or joke to hide his pain. But that was what happened when someone
as irreplaceable as Jessa left.
There one day, kissing me goodbye as I left for work, then gone forever.
