So what is this, then? Story time? You really think you can just walk in and ask me to tell you everything that happened that summer, and I will?

You weren't even there. You don't know what it felt like. I can tell you it was hard, but you'll never guess just how hard it was. You won't even come close.

You didn't know Rosie. You never watched her grow up, depending on you for everything almost as much as you depended on her. You didn't watch her body start to fall apart before her--and your--eyes, and then cry as you realized that her mind was slowly fading too.

Can you tell me why it had to be Rose? A beautiful, perfect young woman with her whole life ahead of her?

You can't?

Then just get out.

The End
