Sleep was fitful and I naturally woke up with the dawn. There was no sense staying in bed if I am already wide awake. I figured Livy would like to sleep in after a long trip and eventful yesterday. I said my morning prayers and headed for the bathroom. I stopped at Livy’s door and pressed my ear on the surface for any signs of breathing. There was no sound coming from her room. Doubt somehow threatened my resolve from checking the other side of the door.
Did all that really happen yesterday?
As I brushed my teeth I kept reasoning to the image staring at me in the mirror.
Might she have gone in the middle of the night and returned to Denver?
