The Neighbor’s Driveway

by Christopher Jug George

My family had pulled the car over in the country to see reindeer in a valley. It made me think of Christmas and all the stuff I would get. The reindeer dawdled around a feeder, and I realized they were big deer. Then I remembered the day I saw a dead deer strapped to the roof of a car in the driveway next door to our house. I will never forget the way those eyes didn’t look at me.
