This might not be the best place to scatter ashes, with its juvenile graffiti and broken bottles, but you just don’t know any other place that would suit the occasion better. Your brother takes the urn from his backpack and places it on top of the rock nearest the edge. You resist the sudden impulse to tip it over and instead signal John to sit beside it. Then you take a picture that you whatsapp to your baby sister: ‘sightseeing with mom’. ‘Morbid’, she replies, and you figure that indeed it is.
Impatient, John unscrews the lid. You try to recall the small speech you prepared, but can’t recall the opening. While you search your pockets for the speech, your brother takes the lid off. The wind grabs at the ashes greedily, sending a small cloud flying. You shout “Keep it shut, you asshole”, and hurry over to grab the urn. Instead, you fumble and the urn goes flying downhill. Together, you watch as it tumbles, bounces off rocks and spills its content in puffs of grey. “Nice going, you complete tool,” John says and slaps you on the shoulder, “I can almost hear her saying it: ‘Ron, you idiot’.” You shrug and let the wind tear the speech from your hand.
