45. Dodging a Bullet
Lori wasn’t pregnant. “Things can back to the way they were,” Devin said as he hugged her at her front door.
“Things cannot go back to the way they were,” Lori said. “I’m never going through this again.”
“OK. We’ll be a little more careful.”
“No, Devin. Things have to change a lot. We have to change. If you dodge a bullet, you don’t keep walking, but just a little faster. You change directions, you run, you get to safety. We have to change.”
“OK, but we’ll still do it, right?”
“Go home Devin.”
If I dodge a bullet today, I will move out of the line of fire.
