The Teacher

“Good morning Dear,” Cassandra Mason said with a satisfied whisper. With affection, she cupped the hard, cold jawbone of the skeleton that stood in the corner of the classroom. “Are we ready for today? You must look your best for the children,” she dusted the clavicles and ribcage.

Two hours passed while she readied the classroom for the day. The hallway outside of the room buzzed with the sounds of young children. A bell rang, her door opened, and children poured into the room.

The day passed with children making lists of bones or pictures of the skeleton. Cassandra sighed with contentment when quiet replaced the hustle and noise. She gathered her things and walked over to the skeleton again.

With a kiss on the skeleton’s high cheekbone, Cassandra closed her and sighed. “You did well, Donny. Thank you.”

She missed having her husband in the flesh by her side, but at least he would always be with her in what she loved most.
