It’s a full moon. I pay the sitter and see her out. I undo my bra and pace back and forth trying to get more air in my lungs. Then without warning, I let out a sound from somewhere deep. It keeps coming and I can’t stop it, I stick my face in the rubbish bin so I don’t wake up the boys and howl and howl and howl and howl.
When I said the story begins here I was lying.
