glimpsing her eyes, part II

She must have been at the door waiting because I hear the sound of someone breaking the seal between in and outside as I close the car door.

 

She’s walking across the porch toward me in pajamas and a pink house robe. It’s cold and the snow circles her, lands on her slippers.

 

When I get close, she takes my hand, slides something inside. Two giant gum balls, yellow and blue.  

 

“You’re a good person,” she offers as justification for why she gives me a gift.

 

We talk for a bit, and when I turn to walk back to the car, she follows me to ensure I don’t slip on the two steps between her porch and the ground.

 

She never noticed the cold.
