Mummy's boy

"Nana told us" he said in the car as we drive home

She told us about uncle S and the wars, that he went, she says he is still traumatised

She said she didn't want him to go

Why didn't she stop him from going?

If we were there, and there was a war, would you do anything to stop me going?

I would kidnap you and take you to another country

The car veers slightly as he hugs my arm tightly
