Slap! And so I bend over, face down, as my eyes well up once more. “I won’t do it,” you say, like a promise. “I’ll never hit you again.” And I don’t know what’s burning harder, my throbbing cheek or the thorn in my pride. I think about how you held my hand earlier and smiled at me as if I mattered. I nod quietly and you smile again. Slap!
