Pen poised in my trembling hand, I read the contract, trying to make sense of the words, of their implication.
Is this what I want?
They say when one door closes, another opens. Well, Randy’s death shattered my door, then my terrible demon hunting “gift” took a good, hard crack at the cobbled shards. Still, I am not broken.
If I do this, there’s no going back.
The HR woman points at my index finger which, I discover, rests on the salary. “Plus full benefits.”
Only now do my senses register words on a page.
The door opens. “Hey, partner.”
Cheers to your B.L.I.S.S.-FULL Life!!
