Sonny, wasn’t the smartest nor the hippest. He was just a normal boy, in a normal town, with a normal dog as a pet, who loved to watch snakes fight in the desert air.
Sonja, was the atypical girl who moved to the desert, because of a condition in her lungs. The air was better for her, the doctors told her. She loved extraordinary tales and watching the white fluffy clouds pass by in a breezy afternoon.

He never got an answer.
She passes soon thereafter. He could only long for her and kiss her goodbye. He knew he’d see her in another time and space, someday…one day.
