She returned home-with a bit of her past to haunt her 2

She slowly took the Pendant from Nik and checked the inscription of her initial ‘S’. the sky changed and a rumbling sound of thunder was heard.it started to pour heavily, a heavy wind was blowing it flew things up and down, Nik had run off towards the house.
‘Nik, Nik. Wait for me!’ she called and ran after it. In the rain it was difficult to see the dog. She dropped dead as she got close to the house. Nik was lying dead in the road, with blood all around it being washed by the rain. She heard Gabby call her name and she jumped.
She jumped awake and held Gabby’s throat and he shrieked. She slowly put the scared boy down.
‘I’m sorry. I had a bad dream.’ she told him and hugged him.
‘Are you okay?’ he asked, still shaken from the assault.
‘Yes, Baby. Do not worry.’
He entangled himself from her hug.
‘I’m eight now. I am no longer a baby.’ He said.
‘No matter how old you are, you’ll always be my baby.’ She said and he laughed. ‘What time is it?’
‘8:15’ he joined her in the bed.
‘Are you not going to school?’
‘I don’t know about other schools, but my school doesn’t open on Saturdays.’ He said.
They both laughed loud and long. ‘I totally forgot. So what do you normally do on Saturdays?’
‘It depends, but I think Mum wants us to go shopping.’
‘And I think she would be going shopping alone.’
‘Depends, what are you going to do?’
‘You’ll find out.’
She took him to the park and told him about ‘someone very special to her’ who used to come to the park with her. She also told him how that park was of sentimental value to her.
‘If you ever miss me, come to this park. There is always a part of me that lives here.’
His face fell. ‘You are not going away again, are you?’
She looked at him and made a face. ‘I am. Right now.’ She ran off laughing and he followed. She slowed down to let him catch up with her, trying to catch his breath.
‘That is very fast.’ He told her.
‘I trained to run.’ She smiled and played with his nose.
‘Will you teach me?’
‘No!’
‘Please, Sara?’ he begged.
‘Oh come on here, I’ll tell you a few.’ She told him how to breathe while running to avoid running out of breath. She told him how to tighten the muscles of his stomach and how to project himself while running and how to run on the tip of his toes.
The park was quite large with enough open space for him to run. She watched him practice and smiled to herself. She thought he would make a good athlete and she made up her mind to teach him.
On their way home, she carried him shoulder high and they sang some rhymes.
‘You are not going away again, are you?’ he asked suddenly serious.
‘Gabby, do not get very used to me. Even you will grow up and leave me.’
‘No matter how big i grow, i will always be your baby.’ He said and they laughed.
She put him down. ‘I am home now. I am not leaving, okay?’ she smiled and he nodded and punched the air as a sign of victory.
Ten months passed since she came back. Things were quite normal at home. She had taken up a job as a print supervisor in one printing company uptown. During her quiet time or when she had nothing doing, she would go to the park and sit, watching the birds fly across and other people who came to the park for recess. Other times, she was out or in with Gabby. Everyone at his school knew her. He follows her to work whenever he was out of school and sits at the reception while she worked. In town, Sara and Gabby were so popular that some people would mistake them for mother and child. Her mom once complained over dinner that Sara had stolen her son from her and her Dad complained that she did not see anyone else in the house apart from Gabby and they laughed over it.
She woke up one morning feeling not-so-well, but she did not want to call in at work. She prepared Gabby for school as had been her custom since she got back and went to work. She felt very uneasy at work and had to sign off. She got some drugs from the pharmacy on her way and decided to spend some time at the park before going to pick Gabby from school, she wanted to surprise him. Her job did not usually permit her to be away at the time school closes and she did not want to go home twice.
She suddenly jerked awake. She did not realise she had fallen asleep. She checked her time, it was already one hour past Gabby’s closing time.
‘Shoot!’ she cursed and got up to go home feeling disappointed, he must be home already. The school was just about thirty minutes of walk from their house and he had a bicycle.
She was still in the park when she kicked a stone and looked down and saw a shiny object half buried in the sand. She picked it up and it was the pendant to Gabby’s Pendant. The Pendant she had given him. She looked around fear taking a firm grip on her.
