The blue eyes haunted Michael wherever he went. He’d close his own eyes, just to rest them, and her eyes would be there, boring bluely into his soul.
How long would he have to live, how old would he have to be, before the eyes of his twin ceased to meet him wherever he went?
They had been so young when she had disappeared, only four years old, and he hardly comprehended what his father told him. “While we were out fishing, Mikey, your mother and your sister got lost.” Lost? But they were home, his mother taking care of Meka, who had a bad cough.
Policemen had come to the house, and returned a few times, but only one of them kept coming back, saying, “I won’t give up.”
Will the detective find her, or will he, too, give up?
Blue Eyes Crying by Will E. Nelson, coming soon.
