How does something just disappear?

She was there one moment – smiling, laughing, being beautiful. She said she was thirsty, so of course he went to get her a drink. He poured them both a glass of water – that was all she would ever drink – and walked back to the living room and she wasn’t there anymore.

He checked the house, but couldn’t find her. Their car was still in the garage and the pieces of paper they kept on all of the doors were still there.

Just like that she was gone.
