I've been putting sorrow on the farest place on my shelf

I've been putting sorrow on the farest place on my shelf




"Its..crazy..isn't it?" Draco said when he shut off the car, back in the apartment driveway. He and Macy were alone.

Lily was going to help Rebecca pack a dinner to take to Sky at the hospital. She would drop Lily off, at Charlie's (Lily's mother).

"See..why I wasn't up..for us going over there?" Draco looked at Macy, a little sad.

"Its all right, you are lucky, you know." Macy told him.

"Lucky?" He didn't quite believe that.

"You, guys aren't mad at each other." Macy told him it wasn't like that with her mother. "I dunno, I guess my mom and I must be too much a like. She was mad at her mom about how she grew up and I was mad at my Mom how she was about leaving me with my grandmother. If..if only, she could have helped with her, but she didn't. She always felt like she had to take care of her mom when she was growing up..and then she was mad at my dad. I'm still not sure I want to figure her out."

It was getting cold, sitting in the car. They soon went into the building and got inside the apartment.

"Well, my dad always wanted my brother and me to be police officers. He never liked the fact that I loved art. He made me feel guilty.. about a lot of things, and the whole time, he'd started a whole  other family with a younger woman. It just made me bitter." He sighed, thinking they should eat, but as if was, they'd eaten too much as it was, so they sat on the couch and she rested her feet in his lap.

"But..you really are such good friends with your ex." Macy smiled.

"That's Charlie's doing." He assured her. "I think we like each other, better now." Perhaps, if he wasn't so comfortable with his situation with his ex, he wouldn't be at all comfortable with his own family. "Anyway, my mom's a rock."

He knew this now, even if he thought for months she'd grown frail. He was certain she might need assistant living. But all along, it was as if she was falling into what ever this was with his Dad, who's mind had not been the same since the first stroke.

It was true. His mom didn't like cooking and cleaning anymore. It was as if she'd shut down too, but this thing with Sky and the baby had perked her up.

Yes, that baby was going to live, and he'd brought a lot of life to those who loved him.

I do hope Sky and the baby stick around - they're bringing so much joy to the people around them!
