The rain continued and the woman lost track of time. She’d spent her days inside never getting back to repairing the chain for her sign. One day the quiet woke her from a deep slumber. She stepped out on the porch and realized the rain had stopped. “Hum, clouds must’ve run out of water,” she said to the cold, damp woods that surrounded her property. She looked up at the sky and thought the raincloud moved ever so slightly. The rest of the day she sat on the porch and watched the sky. The cloud ping-ponged overhead, played by a gentle force she couldn’t see. It reminded her of the days of her youth when they’d play just to pass the time. She thought about her father just across the bridge down the road. She had a choice to make. She could finish repairing the sign and hang it up before going back into the cabin or she could go see if floodwater from the recent dam break had washed out the bridge. It was a difficult choice. If the bridge was washed out then she couldn’t get to her father and that frightened her. Night was falling. It was too late to hang a sign and too late for a walk so she decided not to decide.
The sign which read, “MELANCHOLY” lay on the workbench outside. Inside she slept but her Father just across the unbroken bridge didn’t.
