    They're All Gone

    The Week Before It All Went Wrong

    There's a picture of the four of us, me and Leo and you and him. We're in the local, us two with huge cocktails and them with beer. We're all smiling like crazy, but you can see that me and Leo look a little sad. It was the day you told us you were expecting your son. I should...
