Edith’s feet and hands were chilled to the bone. She would go home. Soon. She didn’t have far to go. It was just to the left – or was it to the right?

Edith looked out across the river. She remembered riding on a ferry and her father buying her an egg cream. Oh, an egg cream would be lovely right now.

“Mrs. Mitchell?” a smiling police officer approached her.

Edith thought for a moment. “No, my name is Welch, Edith Welch.”

The officer smiled again.

“My daddy is just off buying me an egg cream. He will be back soon.”
