“Hold me?” Kara whispers, and I do.

I pull her to me and cling, because he was my father, and he should have been hers. I hurt because he was shot, and he died in my arms, and today we are putting him in the ground.

I regret so much, because I was his son – although not a good one – and because she should have been his daughter. She understands. She holds me back, even though I don’t deserve it. I wasted years; I hurt him as no one else could.

I hold her because a burden shared is halved.
