Voices quarreled, shouted, cried, prayed. It culminated Kyle’s conscious, as he lay face down on the dusty ground. Voices drew near. Kyle slid his eyes open. Dust blew by and caught in his lashes causing hi to blink a few times. He lifted his head, pushed his torso up, and lumbered to his knees. Sitting on his heals, he checked out his surroundings.
Thesight before him took his breath away, and he was glad he was on his knees, or he would’ve ended up on them anyway. Although he remained at a distance, the horror before him grabbed his gut. There before him…..
“Charlie,” said Charlotte. “Why do you want this tree so bad? You know how stupid an idea it is to uproot a tree hundreds of years old and replant it? Seriously now, it would kill it.”
“A clipping would be just as nice,” responded Charlie.
“That won’t work either,” Charlotte rolled her eyes.
Charlie swung to turn and stopped himself, as a leaf hanging from the tree caught his attention. His right foot slid toward the tree, then his left foot followed. He continued with this slide step until he was close enough to grasp onto a leaf. His head tilted to the right as he studied the leaf.
“Should we stop him, Ray?” whispered Charlotte to her husband.
Ray massaged his chin with his thumb and forefinger, “I don’t know if it would do any good. He’s done been pulled right to it. I say let him go. Maybe he’ll come back, maybe he won’t,” Ray whispered back.
The golden leaf sparkled and twinkled in Charlie’s eyes. A yearning dug deep within his heart. He must….. His hand reached up, clasped on to the leaf, then his body from his hand to his feet shot into the leaf in one blink.
Charlotte walked over to the leaf that took Charlie and studied it. A smile played across her face.

How is it I received them so early instead of the February 15 notification I received last Friday, January 29th? You see, the day after I received that notification, Amazon sent me a message saying they had been shipped. I was like, “Hmmm, and it’s going to take until the 15th to get here? That’s silly. Where are they coming from, across the Atlantic?” Then, after church yesterday, Sunday, January 31st, I went out to my car and checked my phone for messages etc. I saw I had received another notification saying my books had been delivered. I was like, “Really? That was fast.” I arrived home and low and behold there they were on my doorstep. So, you may now purchase them on this site here.
