Chapter 2

Caitlin stepped into the den and put her hands on her hips. Everywhere she looked she saw piles of papers, stacks of magazines, and file folders. She contemplated leaving the overwhelming mess for another day, perhaps another lifetime. Her granddaddy had been a packrat. Every weekend she offered to help him clean, but he said, sternly, "No. I may need it someday." With a large sigh she moved towards the desk. She slumped against the desk as she looked at the daunting stacks in front of her. "I'm going outside."

The blue Virginia sky with sun shining bright called to her, but silence overtook the beauty in the day. She found no joy in the one place that had always offered fun, life, and support. She perched herself on the porch swing, her long legs crossed on the weathered seat, and stared at the 1-1/2 story white farmhouse with green shutters. It seemed just yesterday she sat here with her granddaddy, reminiscing about the past and discussing the future.

Was it only last weekend that he seemed extra tired? He sat here staring off into the distance as if he were looking for someone. She believed he was searching for Emmaline, but Caitlin refused to admit it. That would mean he was ready to join his one true love. Only Caitlin was not ready to let him go. With that thought, she returned to Richmond. Within twenty-four hours Garrett had called with the news.
