The time had come

She could see it across the yard, she knew she had to, but that didn’t make it any easier

She knew what waited, it wasn’t her first time heading to the shed
Every few weeks it was required of her, the expectation had been set for years

She slowly walked across the yard, dragging her feet through the grass listening to it swish against her converse sneakers

She slowly reached out toward the door, one last beseeching look toward her father, but no, he would not give way, she would have to get the mower and deal with the lawn
