My neighbors lost they're 21 year old son to cancer. It was very sad, they never fully recovered. Mrs. Flores needed some help around the house, so her daughter Anna, who was recently divorced, came to live with them along with her 3-year-old son. It has been about two years after that. Mrs. Flores is still grieving a little, and Mr. Flores is constantly sick.
My mom and her friends thought it would be nice to have a "girls night out". They took Anna, so I was responsible for her son Max and my sister. My friend Martha was there to help me baby-sit them. We were at Ms. Flores's house; the kids were in the kitchen. We were making them dinner, which was quite a challenge because we're both very bad cooks. Then I remembered that Anna told me to close the back door, because the house gets awfully cold if you leave it open.
As I was about to close it Max came screaming from the kitchen."Don't close it! Don't close the door!" I asked him why, and what he said left me speechless."If you close it David won't get in the house". I wondered if they hadn't explained to him that David was dead. I asked him if they had and he said that they said that he was gone.
"I don't believe grandma, David is still here, and he comes through the back door"
I left it open. I remembered that when David was alive and he came home from school, he'd go in through the back door. I told Anna and she said she knew that. It kind of bothered her that Max would act that way.
What do you think? Is David still here?
