Good Listener by Margaret P.

by Margaret P.

“You think I’m not right in the head—all that effort for a watch. But it meant more than he said.

Shoot, if it didn’t mean somethin’ to him then, it does now—to me.

Too bad about the stallion. You don’t think so? He was a beautiful horse. You’re just jealous.

But I chose the watch. You should be happy.

Think I’m crazy, don’t you? Maybe you’re right. Not refusin’ to go back though, are you? Not sad to go home.

Normal living. Not what we’re used to, but we can learn.

You’re a good listener, Barranca.”
