The Check In

She asks me if I will check in on her after she goes to sleep.

I assure her I will.

There is comfort in this trust.

She asked me earlier on our evening walk, “Who would you be most afraid to meet alone… Pennywise or the Grim Reaper?”

I answered, “Pennywise, because with Pennywise you would almost assuredly experience pain.”

“Exactly.” She replied. “If it was the grim reaper, it would just be your time is up.”
