Loss 7-27-13

He missed work, a couple days, to go to Jack’s parents.

When he got back, the guys wanted to know what happened, why he hadn’t been at work...he said there’d been a death in the family, said it quick then turned away...he should have just said he was sick but he didn’t think that fast...

Word got around, they pretty much let him alone, figured he was going through a bad time...foreman didn’t give him shit about being a little late, a little hung over...passed him outside the barn one day and said sorry for your loss...Ennis said was it ok if he took off the rest of the day...sure, no problem…

The whiskey went down warm...not smooth, but warm...for a few hours, it would lighten the load, but it would be back soon enough, heavier than ever.

For now, these few minutes, he would just miss Jack...try to figure out how to get over missing him, how to get through whatever came to handle - what had his foreman said – his loss...

Sorry for your loss...your loss...your loss...

Raised his eyes, first thing he saw was those shirts...

Closed his eyes, liquor making the here and now fade away...

Okay, so just go back...back to the beginning...when everything was good...just us and the mountain...that first day and every day after, one by one...remember em all...before the loss...before...

Short but so much emotion. I really liked this. I'm not great at comedy myself. I usually write angsty stories. I'm better at sadness. Not all of my stories are sad, in fact I usually write a happy ending. Make them go through a roller coaster of emotions and bring them back up again. I write comedic scenes in my stories but an entire funny story I haven't managed yet.
