I picked up the silvery trinket and spun it in my hand, no doubt dropped by a child here in the park.

Suddenly whirling through memories, into the past I flew… back to the beginning of my lie.

I knew it was wrong to let go, even then!

Was I to be given a second chance? Could I change that awful past?

I wasn’t the innocent, I had let him fall into the flooded stream!

Another spin, forward – now I fly and stop.

Holding out a hand, reaching, is it a vain effort?

Vonny reaches too….

The toy falls from my fingers!
