And…… so today…. as I dressed and thought over 24 hours that had yet to happen……after that voice floated in one ear  then trailed along the back of my skull hiding in a thought…. it happened…. the day…. it came….. it lazily unraveled…. Laughing, joking, trusting, working…. hours easing around each other… rhythm bouncing from one hour into the next…. no complaints…. acceptance…..  IT happened…………. Eyes watered from beneath my mask… Heart skipped a beat, beat nauseating fear, hammered fear into my body suited in calm…. Scanned those pale cheeks and arms……. and then I remembered what had been said, but forgotten……

“The day’ll be easy…. except for one kid”…………………….
