mine: the pacific

“ All the neighbours started coming in to visit that evening. Sid and I were standing in the living room trying to talk to all of them and he got me over to one side and he said, ’ Kath..will you go with me up to the drugstore?’ and I said, ‘sure.’ He said, ’ I had to get outta there. I haven’t talked to adults in so long I’ve just gotta get away a little while and get myself back together.’ ”
