"Mommy?" I say looking up at her, my long brown hair moving in front of my tan skin and covering my blue eyes.
"Yes dear?" She says turning from her Computer to me.
"Whe-When will daddy be home? It's almost Christmas, he missed my.." I count up the ears with my fingers. 1, 2, 3, 4
"He missed my fourth birthday and the holiday with the dead bird! I don't want him to miss Christmas to mommy" I say as tears began welling up in my eyes.
"Well..." There's a long pause.
"I don't know when he'll be coming home dear, I mean Christmas is in three days, how will he get here so fast?" She says.
As I walk upstairs someone knocks on the door. Its my Uncle Sam.
"William your Uncle will watch you while I'm gone, I'll be back in one hour." She says blowing me a kiss, then she walked out the door.
