about how it was going to be without Andy it was going to be better at home There wouldn t be any fighting and I was going to be the only child in the family so Mommy and Daddy could do a lot stuff with just me Like they could both come to my piano recitals and they could both stay for the whole time That never happened before because of Andy cI don t know what a soul looks like Mommy said it s

that could happen cOK so farRed EmbarrassedGray SadBlack ScaredGreen MadAngryAnd what color is for lonely I thought that lonely had to be like a see through color so no color at all because when you re lonely it s like you re invisible from other people but not invisible in a good way like a superhero but in a sad way But the piece of paper is white so how do you make a see through color on a white paper Then I had an idea for that I got out my scissors and cut out the middle of the paper so there was like a picture frame around a rectangle of see through nothingness in the middle Lonely see through cI thought I was also feeling happy I felt happy that I didn t die from the gunman cI could lie down on Andy s sleeping bag and look at the feelings Now they were separated and that made

outside that matched the inside of our house was the rain It rained and rained and it was like it was never stopping like Mommy cried and cried and she was never stopping cI started to pretend like I was in a bad dream and that I was watching myself walk around and do stuff in the dream because this was not how I wanted real life to be like cAfter breakfast today I looked at the outside world through my window and I wished I could be on that side where real life was still there At first I just saw the rain and I watched the circles the raindrops were making in the puddles on the sidewalk

want to laugh but strange funny cMommy was holding my hand She sueezed it tighter and tighter and it got too tight but I didn t try to pull my hand away Mommy needed to sueeze it I thought c I didn t move from my spot by the door because I started to get to know this spot and I didn t want to get to know anything else in the room cI thought it was the most beautiful tree I ever saw and I was happy that it was going to be right there next to Andy s grave cI thought about how Daddy was wrong when he said Charlie didn t get hurt because he did His son died too so his feelings were hurting about that like ours because Andy died except it was worse for Charlie because his son killed his angels and that was worse than just dead cSo maybe then if we could have tried to notice those things around us everyone would have felt happier and then we would have had no fighting c The first secret of happiness that Jack and Annie learn from the man in Japan and it s to make Merlin feel better It s that you have to pay attention to the small things around you in nature OK Zach sweetie I don t know what you re talking about right now but I have a lot of things on my mind Can we talk about this later cMOMMY AND DADDY made the world s longest thunderstorm When Mommy and Daddy were in the same room right away I could feel the storm clouds starting to grow like they were getting all dark and heavy at the ceiling I know a thunderstorm happens when warm air goes up and cold air comes down and they crash together and make big clouds and the clouds make rain and lightning and thunder Well in our house it was like Mommy was the cold air and Daddy the warm air and when they crashed together they made a storm of words and yelling and cryingI got pretty good at noticing when it was about to happen and
