Two nights after that, when I got home, I heard Pilo's voice! I was going to look for her and suddenly, when I opened the front door, she was there waiting for me. I was so relieved and happy to finally see her. Because other than getting a bit dirty, she was as healthy as she was before.
As I stroked her, I was smiling and realised one thing: "Yes, maybe Pilo needed her alone time. But she'll be coming back to one place: home." We all have that moment when we feel like escaping from the world, from everybody, just to find our inner peace. But no matter where we go, we always come back to that exact place: home, where the heart is.
