“Can I run, Mommy?”
Ava Galbraith flinched and pressed her knuckles to her lips. Her daughter’s last words ricocheted around inside her skull like metal balls, echoed by the sound of her tiny footsteps crunching the icy surface beneath her like the dry Cheerios she’d eaten for breakfast that morning. Footsteps Ava might never hear again. Dread, more numbing than the frigid air chilling her cheeks, shot through her, trailed by the forlorn bleat of an animal in pain. She blinked at the snowy expanse that stretched for miles in every direction before it dawned on her that the desolate cry had come from her own lips. She shouldn’t have returned. She should have run and never looked back.
