The sun had never been so bright before. It was as though that day, darkness would disappear forever. Walter knew of his troubles, and how they would never escape his mind, yet this day brought back hope. Hope that would only last for the forty-two hours the sun remained in the sky.

Walter laughed about it. How funny it was to him that the woman would bring him scrambled eggs. He didn't mention it at all to the woman, and was satisfied with his meal. 
Walter and the woman would occasionaly run into each other at the park when he was walking his dog. The woman always said hello and Walter would reply back, "Have a great day."

And now she was gone. Just a mere pigment of his life.
One day, Walter's dog became very excited after seeing
