All By Myself

"Jack's not coming tomorrow," I said to Al last night before getting into bed. "It'll just be me and Annie."

"You sound sad," said Al.

"I am, kinda," I replied. "I've gotten used to having him and Rylan around." I've always liked having people around, but not having to interact with them. It's why I chose a huge school like UGA for my college education, and why I like living in cities. Having a contractor in the house was perfect: I could talk to him occasionally, but I usually wasn't under any obligation to do so.

Anyway, as I said, it's just me and Annie now. Today we're going to haul some more trash to the dump and cut up some more boxes. Or at least, I'm going to do that. Annie will probably just watch from her spot among the sunbeams.
