“This is a pretty place” Molly said, her eyes widened with wonder. “I’ve never been here before”.
Stewart smiled down at her. He loved being able to see her face so closely, it was angelic.
“Well, you’re here now” Stewart whispered ” We’re going to see lots of beautiful places”.
Molly gave him a slight smile. They continued to sit there, oblivious to the state troopers silently walking up behind them.
Up until five hours ago, Molly had never met Stewart. But, he knew her quite well from the playground where he watched her everyday.
Molly would sit with Stewart no more.
