Ann Marie Tajuddin

For a long time nothing moved except the passage of time and then, without any
indication or warning, his eyes snapped open and his great, gulping breaths
swallowed up the silence and the calm. A hand reached out blindly, snagging
the picture off of the table. He brought it into his field of vision and gazed
at it, his respiration slowing like it was a drug. He traced the image with
one fingertip, a sad smile curling his lips and bringing recognition into his
eyes. Both arms wrapped around the picture, clutching it to his chest as he
drifted back to sleep.
