Summary: Walter misses Peter when he’s gone, but even though he returns, things can never be the same.


I’d been waiting for it.

For years, actually.

And when it finally happened, I was high as a kite.


So much so that I didn’t notice that first night when he didn’t come home.

The next time, though, it was obvious, and the figurative use of that phrase applied.

I was happy for him; for them.

And I wasn’t surprised when he didn’t exactly live here anymore.

But thrilled as I was, I missed him.

It was too quiet in the house.

And now, suddenly, he’s back.

It’s like before, except totally different.

Because it is still too quiet.
