“Where are they?” Daisy asked, her question directed at thin air. “And why can’t I see you? I saw Profile before.”
“Because we’re all together now,” Jeany said. “Things are different now. Things are changing. But we’re all still watching Mommy and now watching Daddy Simon. You’re the one that has to take care of Mommy now, like Profile taught you. She is going to be lost without us.”
“I’m lost!” Daisy sniffled. “I can’t do this by myself.”
“Yes you can,” Jeany said, her voice fading a bit. “I’ve got to go, Pup, but we will all be watching and listening. If you need us, just go outside and look up at the stars. That’s where we’ll be, dancing around and playing.” -from An American Greyhound in Yorkshire
I won’t say goodbye, because it isn’t. I’ll just say see you later, because I will, Stardancer.
