Following the ring…

I can clearly remember the sound of the phone ringing. I can feel the way it brought a hushed silence into the room and a heavy cloud of grief into my life. Moving to answer it was like trying to run in waist deep water. The act of picking up the receiver and pushing talk was like a bad slow motion cartoon blooper. Pressed to my ear I hear the sound of breathing, “Hello?” A hesitant, “hello” is returned to me followed by the dreaded pause that proceeds the delivery of unpleasant news.
