Maddie is gone. They packed up their important things, gave me extra hugs, and walked out the apartment door. From my 5th floor perch, I watched them leave the building and head toward the light rail station.
I immediately set out to find any speck of plastic that Maddie forgot to hide from me. I found none. Unfortunately, they are well aware of my desire to eat all things plastic. I was forced to sleep away my day, all by myself.
I do miss my Maddie. I am glad Karin visited me today-otherwise, I might be a little bit lonely. For tonight though, I will burrow under the blankets and enjoy all the warm and cozy I can get.
