Once Upon a Time, We Faded Blue
He knocked three times on Heaven's door and then waited for her, watching his breath in the gray mid-December air. He heard footsteps resonate down the rackety stairs that he wished he knew so much better and waited for the door to open, but nobody answered. |
And so he tried knocking thrice yet again; no response. She was singing in the kitchen: 'Ain't no mountain high enough...' Her voice seemed warm on the compulsory 'ooh~!'
He knocked three times more, not expecting a resopnse. He left 9 flowers on the welcome mat, walked carefully down the icy stairs, and ran back into his car. He looked at the door for a while. Then he turned the key.
The yellow doorbell was still unrung and the door was still blue wheni it opened. A boot ventured out, crushed the flowers, and thus Heaven started her day.
