Laura blinked back tears in the sunshine. She did not want her step-father to see her cry as he lowered the box with her deceased pet rabbit into the ground. Trista had been her best friend when they had moved to this neighborhood, in fact, Trista had seen Laura through more tragedies than Laura had really paused to reflect on - until now.
When Laura's father had left her, her mother and brother - Steven - a few years before and when the subsequent divorce required them to move to a rental property, Trista had come with her. Laura had been forced to send her beloved cat, Oliver, to live with her grandparents because the rental property only allowed pets of the tanked or caged varieties. But Trista had been allowed to come with her. But now Trista was gone. How many times had Laura told Trista how she was feeling because there had been no one else to talk to in the chaos of the divorce? Even the people at church had overlooked Laura and Steven in the crisis.
Now it was too late for Laura to thank Trista for being there during those years. Trista was gone. She was truly Laura's unsung hero. Nothing would bring her back. Laura thought of a new question for her religious education teacher - did good pets go to Heaven when they died? Maybe if they did, Laura would be able to tell Trista how much she appreciated her.
