Will He Stay?

Just when I had all but given up on P, he calls me and says that he wants to come home – for real, this time. A couple of hours later P and his stuff were back in his room at Dave’s Home.

On the ride home I suggested to P that we forget about past mess ups and concentrate on the future. Pretend like we first met. So we exchanged greetings and shook hands. P seemed to like this idea. It bothers him when people use his past behavior to judge his future.

Too bad that’s how the real world works. But maybe I can stave off part of the real world just long enough for P to get back on track. If he stays, that is. Only time will tell.
