Extract from That Dark Remembered Day
In those last moments of childhood, before everything splintered forever, he watched her disappear along the lane. They’d got off the school bus together, made plans to meet later in the woods behind his house, nervous and exhilarated at what might occur. Their fumblings of the last few weeks, gloriously ardent explorations of one another that had so far been contained, now longed for a crescendo, a progression to unknown, untasted delights. He assumed it would be her first time too, although when he’d asked, she’d just smiled and pulled him closer. It irritated him that his own bedroom was ruled out for such a momentous occasion, his father, with the exception of walking the dog, home all day since his return from the war, ghosting between rooms, ever present, albeit in a vacant approximation of himself. There was enough to contend with performance, the mechanics of the thing without the fear of someone walking in, though the woods hardly guaranteed privacy. He’d wanted so badly to ask his friend for advice, a sense of what to expect, but of course the one person he could ask about such matters was now the one person he couldn’t.
