A scene from Chapter 1.8 in Book of Carrot, my novel about the end times. READ it here http://wp.me/pbg0R-b2
Burial of John and Dana at the Rotunda of Writers (behind the statue of Mihai Eminescu) in Cismigiu Park.
Dana and George – Zach’s only son – were laid together behind the statue of Mihai Eminescu. They were two unfortunate, young lovers without a future.
Zach’s thoughts rolled quietly like tumbleweed across a rocky, cold desert night.
George would never go to college. He would never marry and have children. There would be no wedding party and baptisms. The three barrels of palinka that Zach had buried underground 18 years ago would not be served to George’s guests.
There would be no grandchildren to spoil. No one to teach the ways of landcraft, animal husbandry, and nature – all the things that he had learned from his grandfather. There would be no laughter and squeals of grand children. There would be no finger holes in the pies and cakes set out to cool.
George would not build a house on the land of his grandfathers. George would not even have a proper funeral: no vigil in their home, no candles and no casket.
Zach’s wife would never speak to him – if Zach would see Georgina again.
Georgina would slap his face when she heard the news from him. She’d cry for a month. And she would never speak again with Zach.
