Tommy downed half the bottle of whiskey he lifted from his old man’s cabinet. He knew he’d get his tail whipped for it, but he didn’t care. This day was special, and he wouldn’t let anyone interfere with it.
After a final gulp, he set the bottle in front of the tombstone and sighed. “I tell ya, I never thought it’d be you. I was the one no one expected to make it to twenty, not you.”
He shook his head at the memory of him and Jessica growing up together, and the out of control car that changed everything.
