Goodnight - Catherine Zickgraf

Kira and I decided one evening before I had to go in

and get a bath that after bedtime we would call


out our windows to each other from across the alley.

First grade, I was still crazy awake when they’d


tuck me in, the sky so full of daylight. But having her

to talk to at night would be like double-dutching the


telephone lines that crossed the canyon between

our streets—I’d never be bored again. Yet from my


row of homes in my treehouse bedroom two and

a half stories up, the only word I heard was goodnight.
