EXCERPT

Erin held my eyes for a moment but she broke away, saying, over my shoulder, “What do you want?”
I turned sharply. Erin’s mother, making a rare appearance, was standing on the threshold of the room, taking in Erin’s hand that still lay in mine. I dropped it.

“What are you doing?” Erin’s mom asked in a dull voice, her fingers trying to comb through her matted hair.
She seemed lucid but her eyes were glazed and hooded.

“I’m about to take off all my clothes,” said Erin, and I hoped her mother didn’t catch my sharp intake of breath.

Her mom sighed.

“Always got a clever comment, don’t you?”

“We’re just doing our homework, Mrs Parker,” I said quickly, hoping to defuse something ugly. Erin hadn’t tried to hide the fact from her parents that I was an Oxy; in fact, she liked throwing it in their faces. They didn’t prevent me from coming around but the atmosphere was always tense.

“You’re no fun,” said Erin, squinting at me. Her mother picked at her teeth. “So mom, if you don’t mind, please shut the door on the
way out.”

“Actually,” Mrs Parker said, “We’re gonna leave that open.” And she shoved my schoolbag in front of the door and walked away. We could both hear the crack in the kitchen as she snapped a couple more beers out of a pack.

“With the amount that my mother drinks,”
said Erin, “you’d think she’d be a lot more fun. Just because she had me when she was sixteen, she thinks I will do the same thing. As if!”

She looked up at me, frowning. “And I mean, really, it’s only you, Alex.”

And my heart ached.
