“So what was it?” he asks me, sitting up slightly. “What chased you away from where you used to live? Was it a bad boyfriend? Trouble with the law? You can tell me, and I promise not to judge.”

He has this honest face, the earnest face of a child. Unlined, unworried, he stares at me like I’m his own personal sun.

“Tonight’s not the night.”

“MJ,” he tells me, “I know it was something big, something bad. Otherwise you’d tell me. I’ll wait. If you want to tell me, then I’ll listen. If not, I’ll wonder, but that’s all.”
