27 / The Summer of Disruption
The rest of the weekend felt like an eternity. We started looking at flights out of Tampa that flew to other states first, with onward flights to Canada. Maybe she could drive out of the state and take a flight from there? What about her family. Would they be ok to stay?

‘Do you think I’ll get my passport tomorrow? Do you think I’ll be able to fly out?’

All summer long I had tried to put on a brave and positive face. That things would all work out in the end.

‘I don’t know Yasmine. I really don’t know.’

Considering the summer we had just been through this latest obstacle felt…absurd.
