The First Day

The first day of school, Elena held Marisa’s hand, walking her to the school bus stop on the other side of the bridge. “Every day will be an adventure for you.”

Elena waited for her daughter when she got off the school bus in the afternoons. They walked home, chatting about the lessons, teachers, students.

Marisa crossed the bridge for the last time. Her mother, gone for years, only a memory in the shadows. On the other side: a new city, a new job. The first day of her new adventure began as the last day of her old life.
