A Good Mother
I’m looking for my keys when my child’s cry startles me into a run. He’s standing beside the car, transfixed by something on the bonnet.
I hurry over to see what it is and stand for a moment, my chest rising and falling. Revulsion rushes through me, icy black waves that dash the air from my throat…
All I ever wanted was to keep my son safe. I married the perfect husband, built the perfect home. I’ve tried to give Finn the life I never had.
Everything was going so well, until the threats started coming.
