Spencer could feel it coming as he carefully placed Gideon's letter back in its envelope. He could feel it coming as he gathered up the gun and badge. As he walked outside, he shivered despite the warm night air. He climbed into his car and set Gideon's things in the passenger seat. His brain kept sending out the signals move arms to buckle seat belt and use right hand to turn the ignition, but his heart wouldn't allow it.
Spencer wrapped his arms tightly around himself, leaning forward as an all-too-familiar wave of emotions crashed over him. He bit his bottom lip until he tasted blood on his tongue. He felt tears run down his cheeks and nose. His body shook with sobs he wouldn't let free. That day began playing like a bad song in his head...over and over and over!
"Dad, please don't leave! We need you, especially Mom!"
"I know things are difficult, Dad, but if you stay, it can get better!"
Spencer slowly sat up and leaned back against the seat. He looked at what remained of his mentor and whimpered, "Why am I so easy to leave behind?"
There was no answer.
