Part 5

We were back on the old park bench again; each of us sitting exactly where we’d been sitting before. I didn’t know what time it was, but it looked like the noon of night-time; the moon was higher and brighter than it had been all night, and the darkness was richer and deeper.
“Dolly,” I said suddenly, “Did you ever call your mom again?”
“No,” Dolly sighed, “I mean I sent her a few emails letting her know that I’m still alive. But I don’t know, I don’t think I can ever talk to her ever again.”
“Well, I think that’s your step 2 Dolly; talking to your mom.”
“It’s not that easy, Holden.”
“It’s not that hard either.”
She turned to face me, her eyes were brimming with tears; “What am I going to say to her Holden?”
“You’ll tell her that it’s her long-lost daughter calling,” said my sister, “and the conversation will just flow from there.”
