Odessa is gone. She left yesterday afternoon, nothing unusual about it, but she didn't come back last night, and she still has not returned. I fear the worst.
She's been gone many times before, and for most of them, I've felt that she would return, but I do not have that feeling at all now. As I faced the outside world today, I was overwhelmed by the feeling that I don't want to go out there; it's a world without Odessa.
She's gone, and I do not believe I'll see her again.
