An Ending

from a creative writing workshop:

The Wilkinson family sold their house that Spring to a couple without children. Better that way, I suppose. Those tragedies might somehow imprint themselves on the innocent.

I was most sad about Jean. She had tried. The others tried, in their own way, but only to save themselves. Jean had tried to steer the ship a different direction and she had fallen overboard. Or maybe she was pushed. Or maybe she jumped on her own. I would never know.
