The small living space was empty, not even the little dog was there. The soft glow from the Tiffany lamp revealed an opened jewelry box by the couch. I imagined my mom getting ready for a night out with the older folk downstairs. Maybe someone was playing the piano or singing. Curiously, all of the pills I filled earlier were gone, indicating that she might have planned to stay out late. There was some muted feature from the Weather Channel on the large flat screen. I figured I shouldn't be there, but it was comforting to see her going out.
