When we are used to living, used to life and people and fun and celebration. We don't do well when it suddenly and without purpose, ends. The Winslows are an amazing couple and the envy of everyone they meet, but when Stacy disappears, Gary's world stops suddenly. Like being on any ride which stops suddenly, Gary felt like he was being thrown through the windshield of a car. The rest of his days were spent in desperate searching and attempts to find the woman that he was meant to be with for all time. So here he is, on a typical day without his one love. See if you've ever felt this way. Then check out "The Compass Society" and experience a world of the future that, in part, we hope never comes true.
After his shower he shuffled into the kitchen. He opened the door to a refrigerator which was as empty as his soul felt, hoping that a good fairy had placed even something as small as a glimmer of hope or, at the very least, some milk, inside. To his disappointment, the shelves were still empty, so he grabbed a partially filled box of cereal from the cabinet, walked out to the living room and sat on the floor. The living room used to be just that. It was a place where life existed and a place where they loved life together. They would watch movies, sip wine, get silly, laugh hard and love hard. Now there was no furniture and certainly, no happiness.
