NOTICED! Part 27: The Photograph

The autobiography of a woman; by Waldorfia

We returned to the cabin that evening and talked most of the night away. The light of a hurricane lamp lit up his handsome face. It had been a wonderful day. Jason excused himself to use the bathroom. I took the opportunity to look around the cabin.

There was a framed picture of Jason on a yellow motorcycle. I picked it up to take a closer look. It wasn’t Jason – – – – – – it was Alex!

I was in shock. Jason exited the bathroom and perceived that something was drastically wrong.

“Are you OK?” he asked.

“Who is that on the motorcycle? I responded.

“My brother Alex” he answered. “He’s gone. Suicide.”

“Take me home – – – NOW!” I demanded.

I could not admit my guilt to Jason. We rode home in silence.

I was never able to speak to Jason again. Jason never spoke to me either.

The End
