The Apple of My Eye (2014) by Mary Ellen Bramwell & the Suspicious Nature of Heroism

“They could not feel my anguish nor see the concern in my eyes. They would wake up in the morning as if nothing had happened and make their breakfasts and go to work or school or take care of their children as if the day were like any other. But it wouldn’t be, and I knew it, regardless of what greeted me ahead.”
