Florida? This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Florida?

No, it can't be true ...

My heart fell.

"Does this mean you'll have to come see me only once in a while,

from far away, only once in a while?"

My soul fell.

"Who am I going to play checkers with on Sunday afternoons?"

My mind fell.

"Whose house am I going to sleep over?"

My grandparents were falling - falling south to Florida -

They were only a minute away for those first eight years of my life ...

Yet our relationship has never fallen.
