Center of it All Epilogue

NOTE TO JIB VOTERS - This is the final installment of Center of it All. It was inadvertantly put on the Jerusalem Post Site as the main link for this series. You can find the beginning of the series here.

The rink was cold, but the smile on Eli’s face kept me warm. We hadn’t spent much time together over since the divorce, but I was determined to spend more time with my children. Today, it was Eli’s turn.

We held hands, talking, as we skated around the rink a few times. Then, she skated away, looking like an angel on ice, to skate with her friends.

There had been a cloud that settled over my life years ago. I had been living in darkness for so long, I hadn’t even noticed it was there, until it went away. The nightmares had lost their hold on my nights, and I was back to giving my clients the kind of service I could provide.

My skate got caught in a rut on the ice, and I went crashing down, sliding on the ice into the wall.

Eli saw me fall and skated across the rink to see if I was OK.

“Are you OK, Daddy,” she asked.

“Never better, sweetie, never better.”

The preceeding story is fiction. You can find the beginning of this story earlier on this blog.

    Thanks for telling me that you finished it. It really is a great story.

    I am still amazed that he was married and his wife never asked for more information about how he lost his toes.

    I believe you should spend some time in Israel putting these stories into a book. I definitely think they are publishable.

    Can't wait for the next one.
