"My dad never grew lavendar, took up too much room in his gardens." I respond, closing my eyes as he leans in towards my hair. "I think the lavender was from Jean. Maja always liked it, kept it hanging in her wardrobe, and he got me a bouquet after everything happened. It stayed in my old guitar case until it just fell apart."

"Ah," I nod, trying not to let that news get to me as I cock my head a little toward the lightly snoring man. "Well, that was nice of him."

"Not really." I swallow softly, "He gathered what was salvageable from our place - Her guitar, the case, some clothes, what not - and he stuck around just long enough to see to it I had a place to live. I've never gotten anyone to admit it, but I think he's the one who paid up the first few months rent for me way back when.


"I was staying with this elderly woman, Mrs. Maggie, who was seeing to my care. You've met her, lived a floor up? 


"It didn't take long for him to stop visiting, and once he set up that apartment and we got the key, he was gone. I went home to a pile of her things - that bundle of lavender - and no one. I think that's why I sort of lost it when I realized that guitar was gone. For so long, pieces of her were all I had."

"Why would he do that, though?" I ask with a frown. "Just up and leave..?"

"He didn't take it well," I shrug softly, "He and Maja were really close, I think they were talking marriage and babies and..."

Sighing, I stretch out on the mattress before curling my arms against my chest in the gap between us. "I couldn't talk for awhile at first, I'd bitten into my tongue and cheek, no one could understand me. I don't think he could stand to just sit there."
