C137 It is today
Today is Sunday. Mum is calling. I should be on my way back home or planning towards that but none of that is happening. The trial is tomorrow and Ben needs my presence now more than ever.
The continuous ringtone intensifies my guilt but I don’t reach for the phone. I bite my nails and clench my eyes shut but the ringing doesn’t stop.
I march to the door and return to the foot of the bed
