Monday, March 9th 2009
in Glasgow

I turn the computer on. Some music is playing softly in the background and Steve is reading the newspaper on the sofa. There is a sweet feeling in the house. As if warm cookies could be a feeling...
You have one email. Well then let's read it. It's from Amy, the nice French girl I met at Dr McCourt... Dr McCourt? Shit!!!
"Steve?"
"Hum?"
"What time is it?"
"It's ten to five, why?"
"Shit!"
He looks at me.
"Why? What is it?"
"My appointment with the shrink was supposed to be at four. I forgot..."
He laughs.
"Honey, I think it was subconscious."
"What do you mean?"
"You've been avoiding anything that looks like a watch or a clock since ten this morning." He giggles and comes to hug me.
"It's alright. Don't worry about it for now. Are you working on your book?"
"No, I'm reading Amy's mail. You know, the French girl I met at the sh... at Dr McCourt's. I sent her my article, and she is giving me feed-back." I read the few lines quickly. "Well, no, actually, she wants to meet up some time this week."
"So, what are you going to tell her?"
"I'm going to say yes, of course. I really enjoyed it last time. And it's nice to meet new people, don't you think?"
Before he can answer, the phone rings. He picks it up and talks for a little while. I quickly type an answer to Amy to tell her to give a call any time soon, when she has some spare time and that we'll meet up. Just when I click on Send, Steve gives me the phone. He says quietly: "Your father" and then leaves to the bathroom.
Reluctantly, I put the phone to my ear.
"Hi Dad."
"Hello, sweetheart."
Silence.
"Charlie, I never got around to thank you. For what you and Steve did for me. And I'm obviously not talking about your kidnapping. Thank you, honey, for bringing me to Louis. Thank you."
"Your welcome, Father."
"I... Oh please, Charlie, don't talk to me like that." He's moaning and I hate it. I don't hear anything for a while and then, some sobbing. This softens me a little, but not quite enough.
"What do you want, Father?"
"I... Well..." There is a moment of silence. I think he's blowing his nose.
"Your mother and I are going to visit Louis in Dijon. We're going there some time at the end of the week. I just wanted to let you know so that you don't worry if there is nobody home."
"Why would I worry?"
Silence. I realise I've been too far and that I'm hurting myself even more than I'm hurting him. His next reply is only a whisper.
"Well, I just wanted to tell you. Good bye Charlie. Give my regards to Steve."
I hang up.

Why did I talk to him like that? WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?
