Solid sales record.
The streets were empty. Under normal circumstances, he found comfort among the crowds. Friends and strangers alike, it didn't matter to Todd. As long as he was surrounded by people, he felt at home.
But for what he was about to do, he needed solitude. He didn't want anyone to judge him or try to talk him out of it.
No pedestrians, no traffic. With the exception of the bars, Aspen Falls was the kind of town that rolled up the carpets by ten o’clock. This usually annoyed Todd to the point where he bitched about it on a regular basis. But now he was grateful.
It was just after midnight when Todd left the bar. Though he had no idea how long it took him to get to Lakeside Drive from downtown, he figured it was at least an hour. Not that it was far from where he’d started but he took his time as he made his way through the streets, trying to prolong the inevitable. He wanted to make sure this was what he wanted. He’d even stopped at a small, all-night diner to get a coffee for the journey. Todd had detoured by the lake. Partly to feel the cool breeze coming off the water. Partly because the sound of waves lapping against the shore relaxed him. Mostly because he wanted to enjoy his last day, sipping his coffee as he admired the vast expanse of water connecting with the black sky in the distance.
