Dialogue only, 499 words. A mother receives an unexpected phone call during the night, which proves life-changing through the words of her lost child.

“Hello, who is this?”
“What? No, no no! This can’t be!”
“It’s me, mommy”
“If you’re some sick freak, you’ve had your fun now, I’m hanging up. Ring again and I’ll phone the police!”
“Mommy! No, it’s me! It’s me! It’s me!”
“You sound convincing but...”
“It’s me! It’s me! It’s me! Mommy! Don’t go! Please don’t go!
“Oh my god! My beautiful Angel, it’s ok, it’s ok, mommy is here!”
“It’s me!”
“I know sweetie, ssh, ssh, ssh….. It’s ok. Mommy has just been so lost without you and daddy. I don’t know how you’re speaking to me, I don’t care if this is all a dream, always know, I love you so much, Angel.”
“Mommy, I love you too. Daddy is here, but daddy won’t talk, he’s been feeling bad since we got here”
“Why’s that Angel?”
“Daddy says if he went a different way, we would still be together.”
“Angel, tell daddy that’s silly, it wasn’t his fault. The crash...”
“It was so scary mommy! But the warm light took us away, grandma and grandpa are taking care of us now”
“Yes mommy”
“Ask Grandma what she told me before I went on my first day of school”
“Grandma said not to worry and she’d bake a gingerbread house for you at home”
“Jesus! Thank you! Whoever or whatever is making this possible, thank you so much for letting me speak with my little girl again!”
“Mommy, please stop crying so hard!”
“I can’t sweetie! Every night I feel you and daddy here with me, but you’re not, and crying is the only thing your mommy can do”
“We’re with you mommy, when you cry, we cry too.” 
“Was that you lifting up mommy’s hair last night, when mommy was trying to sleep?”
“Yes, mommy. You can't hear me, so I play with your hair”
“I am so sorry, Angel, I promise I’ll speak to you, even if I can’t hear you. I’ll stay right by this phone, waiting for you”
“Mommy, I can call you only one time, I won’t see you until-”
“Until when Angel!?”
“You’re in heaven with me, daddy, and everybody else”.
“Angel, don’t worry, mommy will be there real soon, hold on!”
“What mommy?!”
“I am coming for you, just wait for me, we’ll be together again in a few minutes, I promise!”
“No mommy! Mommy! Mommy! Mommy”
“Mommy! Mommy! You can’t! Daddy says when it’s your time or you’ll go the other way!”
“Daddy says no Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!”
“Angel I can’t say goodbye again!”
“Daddy says listen or we won’t be together!”
“I can’t say goodbye again!”
“Then don’t, mommy!”
“Angel, only for you, mommy won’t do something stupid. I just want to hold you so much, kiss you, see you.”
“Mommy, I have to go now. I love you!”
“I love you to Angel, and I promise we’ll be together!”
“Together forever?!”
“Cross your heart?”
“And hope to die..."
