What is happiness? Is it a place? A time? A choice?
I am afraid of the answer. Because if it is either of the former two, it’s lost to me.
Lost in time, a place that has vanished by my own making and I stand in the wasteland of my choices.
Except, not a wasteland, really. Because I have nearly everything I want.
“Rembrandt, come to bed. It’s cold out.”
The voice lifts from the beautiful woman under our covers, my wife of seven years, which is almost correct.
Close enough, really, to the truth.
Maybe this is my truth.
I’m standing at the open window of my two-story craftsman home. The bare wood floor chills my feet, and a crispness layers the June air, as if the night is on alert.
The sky is a deep indigo, stars staring down at me. The giant dead elm tree at the back of our yard, still here, despite my taking it down in a previous timeline, stretches skeletal arms across the yard and through moonlight waxing my backyard.
In my dreams, I see a swing set there, a little girl, age seven, swinging, her braids flopping with every pump. Daddy, watch me!
She is blonde and sweet, and her laughter fills my soul.
My throat burns and I have my answer.
Happiness is a person.
Movement, the bed clothes rustling, then the creak of the floor and I still as Eve comes up and wraps her strong arms around me. She is warm and solid and real and this should be enough for me.
A kiss to my spine sends a ripple of heat through me.
I’ve missed her so much, my body aches.
“Thinking about your new job?” She smells of the lavender cream she lathers onto her skin every night.
It feels like a lifetime since I’ve wrapped my hands around hers, since we’ve shared this quiet awareness of each other.
Three lifetimes, actually.
Because this is my third try at rewriting my life, to find myself back at the beginning.
And like I said, this time, I nearly got it right.
