À bientôt

 

She tiptoed silently into the kitchen, her family fast asleep.

He sat at the table munching cookies. They talked in hushed voices. Animated conversations about life, books, films, music.

Daylight broke, he said goodbye.

She made breakfast, humming cheerfully.

He’ll return tonight.

Her best friend and unborn twin.  Her alter.

 

à bientôt / ä-byaⁿ-tō
