"Hello again, Richard. For today's session, I thought I would listen while you tell me stories about your father..."

Reluctantly, I laid back on the patient's chair and sighed. She wants me to talk about my father. I particularly don't want to, but I figure it's better to remember than forget...

Not to mention if I don't? It's gonna be a long two hours...

I remember sitting in my room, reading one of my textbooks while jotting down some notes on a piece of paper when my dad walked through the door.

"What're you up to, son?"

"Nothing much, dad. My whole class has to do a book report on birds. Mr. Brown assigned me to do one on Turdus migratorius."

He gave me a puzzled look, so I smirked.

"The American Robin."

"Oh... Right. I knew that..."

"Sure you did..."

After sharing a quick laugh with my dad, I clicked my pen and continued my notes.

"Well, I better let you get back to work... Goodnight, Dick."

As he headed for the door, a thought that had been bugging me for a long time caused me to quickly react.

"Dad, wait..."

His hand was on the knob as he turned back around to face me.

"I miss her..."

He looked at me, immediately knowing who I was talking about, which caused him to hesitate. But after a long pause, he responded.

"So do I, son..."

He opened the door, and before exiting, he muttered it one more time.

"So do I..."
