After we buried Mom, Dad played a few shows to get us some money. Destruction Band had become so famous.

My friend at school says that her parents had their first dance to Sophia, Destruction’s love song. About Mom. The chorus is my favorite part. No more asking, or wondering, no more lying awake. The whole world for your laughter, for the sound of your name.
