Umber (53.2 — Ervin’s Story)

Well, talk about your coincidences! I was just sitting behind the wheel, wondering what I was doing in a strange neighborhood in a strange city watching snowflakes pile up on the windshield, when down the sidewalk came my cousin.
I leaped out of the truck and yelled, “Verey!”
She was as shocked as I was, but happy–no, overjoyed– to see me. I tried to explain how I’d just gotten into the truck and it had led me across several states, right to her house.
“Oh, cousin,” she said as she took my hand and hauled me toward the porch. “Maybe you can help me figure out what to do.”
