I lit a cigarette and thought about how I hated to see her go. Again. Thank God for dark glasses.
The kid snapped me out of thoughts of our bedroom farewell. “Wow, what?" I asked.
"That's some pretty girl you got."
I took a long drag. Yeah, tell me about it.
I heard a whistle . . . and it wasn't the train's. It was the steward, gawking up at my girl.
Hell. I'd sure miss her.
Another drag and I headed back to my empty bed, wondering if I'd ever quit smoking.
