Jack is gone tonight.
    It’s the eve after our anniversary and I really need to talk to him.
    As per tradition, we don’t talk on our anniversary. We didn’t speak on the actual event and so we honor that by remaining silent on the day we meet every year.
    Jack says that makes it harder to get into a fight on our anniversary also. I always laugh when he says that. Mostly because it’s true.
    But Jack is not here tonight.
    I walked down the tree-lined path and no one leapt from a threatening height or emerged in a sulk from the bushes. I reached the park completely alone.
     Where was Jack?

The End
