A Matter of Perspective

by Elias Scott

Chapter 16

I was surprised when Frank wrote back. Frank's like a parent who waits up for his son to get home and be sure he's safe. Damn, I was glad to hear back from him.

Didn't sleep much. Slept in the car. Frank and I passed a few short emails between us until Frank had time to write me a longer note.

Frank loved telling me to expect the unexpected, and you'd think that after everything that happened I would. But my life has been so dull that I'd kind of gotten in the habit of expecting every day to be the same. It sure wasn't anymore, that's for damn sure.

Frank and I passed a few short emails back and forth early in the day that didn't amount to much. I finally got back to him that night after 10:00 PM.
