Grandma & Grandpa
BY AlAiNA sMith
hadn’t seen my grandfather for more than five years, not since my grandmother’s funeral, and I was looking forward to spending Christmas with him. I envisioned the cozy house I remembered from childhood visits. I could picture every detail perfectly—except one: Grandpa’s new girlfriend. I knew that her name was Karen and she was 25 years younger than my grandfather.
I also knew she was living with Grandpa and had known him for many years. In fact, she and her late husband had been longtime friends with my grandparents. Grandpa had been married to Grandma for more than 50 years, and losing her to cancer had been devastating for him. Grandpa deserved to be happy again, and from what I’d heard, he was happy with Karen.
