Early morning on the 5th of January, 2008, my dad came into my room while I was sleeping. I'd been sleeping very lightly, as had been the norm in that house for some time. Just in case. I woke right up, of course. I was prepared for an emergency, ready to get up and go right into action. The night before, I had to remember, had been particularly horrifying in that regard.

Instead I watched his gait and knew the heaviness of it without needing the words. I took a deep breath as he came right over to my bed and sat on the edge next to me, still in darkness.
