“It’s simple,” she said to her son, sitting in front of the game board. The illustrious patterns of criss-crossing lines across the board until his mother’s chest—they were laying down, heads first, with their feet in the air at an altitude high enough for the clouds—hypnotized him as he watched her place down her word. He picked seven letters from the silky bag as he was told.

“A-P-O-L-V-Q-blank?” He muttered under his breath. “What is this blank?” he asked his mother quietly.

“The blank is you,” she beamed. “You can be anything you want to be.”
