Anna couldn’t ask her father for money. For one thing, neither she nor Fay knew where he was. The last gift he gave Fay was his signature on the divorce papers. The last gift he gave Anna was a pat on the head and a mumbled “See ya, kiddo” as he walked down the echoing hallway of the courthouse. She still remembered the sunlight streaming through the windows as he walked away from her forever, putting his hat on his head as he faced the future and left the past in the dust motes tumbling in the summer sunlight.
