I had just finished college only to return to an empty house. No one had called or sent a message to this effect so I was left in utter confusion. What had happened to mother and father? How about my siblings? Where were they?
As I scratched my head, a lady walked in, “Hello,” I said. With a quizzical look, she said, “Who are you? I was told that the house was ready for my arrival!”
Now the pieces were starting to fall in place, but not the one about where my next home was located. Asking about the former residents of the house were, she stormed out of the house muttering some words under her breath.
With nothing left for me there, I headed for the canal to board the ferry to grandma’s place. I was sure, I would get answers there, maybe also find my family.
