Diana's best friend Jane died at Christmas. They met at prenatal classes, and visited each other at the births. Their children became friends; Diana and Jane would take care of them both when the other had an assignment. In the hospital, Diana sat smoking by Jane's bed, ducking the nurses and their admonitions. "You're the only one who hasn't run away," Jane said.
Christmas was wiped out. As a late treat last night, Diana took both kids to see Peter Pan. It did nothing to help little Bobby. "Look they're flying," Diana said to him. He did not respond. In the car going back, he said in a quiet voice, "Everybody's dead. The Lost Boys are dead. Peter Pan's dead. Tinkerbell is dead."
"No she's not," pleaded Emma. "She's not. She's going to come back."
