My friend Jake went out of town for study purposes. The day before his return, I went over to his house to give him a surprise when he came. He had given me the keys to his house as he wanted me to water his plants when he was gone.
He had told me he lived alone but I was warmly greeted by his grandmother. We watched movies and had popcorn. Her homemade pecan pie was appealing. It was about a quarter to 9, he would arrive by 10, roughly.
His grandma told me she had to attend a bingo game.
‘at this hour?” I thought
I bid goodbye to her. An hour or so later Jake returned. I had bought pizza knowing he loved it.
As we chatted I told him ‘your grandma's pecan pie is delicious, too bad she had to leave.
Jake looked at me.
She left about an hour ago, or we could’ve got some more cause……”
“My grandmother died 2 months ago”
