Time to Go
by Erin M. Hartshorn
Sally patted her grandmother's shoulder. "It's time to go."
"I don't want to. I can still be useful."
Sally's grip tightened. "Now, Grandma, we've discussed this. It's the best option."
Her grandmother fixed Sally with her sharp eyes. "I always said I didn't want to go to a home. Trust you to have found something worse." She shook her head. "I was looking forward to watching my great-granddaughter grow up, giving her advice, the way I did you."
