Everything was almost perfect.
Kelly had gotten a promotion, I had gotten a promotion, our lives were moving upwards. There was a senior post that would become available in a few months, and Kelly was putting in for it. Whether he got it or not was a coin toss, so we didn’t make plans.
This senior post was in another city. If Kelly got it, he would have to move there. I told him, there was no problem in me transferring to that city..
I wasn’t unhappy where we were, nor the life we had. If we stayed we stayed, if we moved we moved. All that was in the future.
And we lived in the Now.
Then there was this little boy I found wandering on the road.
