At sunset, the red sky reflects, as ripples form across the water. The movement, as people jump in, disturbs its stillness.
The reflection from the boat, casts shadows and creates a gloom over the pretty lake. I’ve been coming here since a little girl with Jen. I reminisce about the fun afternoons as we walked Penny the spaniel, around the seven mile perimeter of the lake, swimming by the bridge and catching tadpoles.
Today, a darkness overshadows the joy. Turning away, I walk toward the car as I glance at the white, police tent, covering the body of my friend.
