HATE HAD RILED WITHIN ME. I HAD JUST LOST IT ON OLD ABE. AMID MY FURY, A STILL, SMALL VOICE CRIED OUT, “PLEASE, STEP ASIDE AND COMPLY. PRAY!”
Just then, it hit me. What had I done? Had I been the only one wronged in life and its urgencies? I thought to myself, Maybe I was wrong. I’ll go back in there and apologize to Old Abe. I’m only making this day worse by harboring condemnation.
But as I turned to go back into the kitchen, I sensed a surreal calm, a quiet storm. Then I looked over at the kitchen table. I saw…nothing. No Abe! Stunned, I cried, “Jehu! What have you done, dog? No! This can’t be. You’ve eaten Old Abe!
