I left home at 5 of the hour. I had to waste two hours. I went downtown first. I was going to take some pictures and just check out what's happened since last summer.
It started to rain as I got half a block from the truck. I made the block and decided to head out to Badin. It seemed a decent place to park for a while at the boat landing. It was pouring rain when I arrived.
Behind me, the sun broke through the last of the clouds. The sky was still dark overhead. From the landing, it appeared that the rainbow sprang out of the lake itself.
I sat there about an hour and just watched the water and the clouds. Then I drove into town and parked across the street from the store. I didn't see a single customer go in or out the whole time. About quarter of 7, I started making my way back home. I stopped at the store for a pack of gum. I drove past the house and noticed the dining room light was off. I could go home again.
Her card was on the kitchen counter. Someone had been in my house.
This morning I get an email stating that the tour had been canceled at the last minute due to problems on the client's end. So be it. Another tour will be scheduled, but she's already disrupted my life enough.
