A memory: good and bad

A fall.
A deep cut.
Plenty of blood.
A call to the ambulance.
Trying not to let you close your eyes.
You were crying and screaming.
(And clicking the castanets that you had in your hand.)
Elara was so upset to see you hurt.
Zeb blew raspberries to cheer you up.
You laughed at him.
Dad lay on the hospital bed with you.
And you watched 'Charlie and Lola'.
When the doctor fixed you, you said 'it hurts', but you didn't cry.
You were beautiful, and brave.
