A Wagner Matinee
By d_roach, Updated
Clark received a letter one day from his Uncle Howard. It stated that his wife had received a small legacy by a relative who had recently died. Clark was asked to meet Aunt Georgiana at the bus stop and help her with anything she needed so she could attend the estate settling.
Aunt Georgiana was very quiet all the way back to Clark's boarding house. As soon as the two got there, the landlady put her to bed at once.
The only think Clark could think about that night is how lost and different his aunt is. He kept thinking about all the memories he had with her while growing up.
The next morning Clark was excited to give back to his aunt. He was taking her to an opera knowing her love for music. He soon realized his aunt wasn't as excited as he was.
Throughout the opera Clark's aunt kept crying during every song.
The opera was over and it was time to go. Everyone was standing up except for Clark's aunt. That is when Clark realized why his aunt has been acting sad. Everything in this town that she knew growing up has changed. For her, just outside the door was the old ways of cattle filled fields, and cloths being hung out to dry.
