"You're still worried about Ma?," Ray asked Debra in bed that night, stroking her side as he did. "Maybe she's just quiet now."

 

He heard a heavy sigh in response. "Ray, it's your mother," she murmured, eyes shut, face pressed against her pillow. "She's never quiet. Ever since your father died she just sits there."

 

"She doesn't even complain about my cooking, you know how much she hates that. I just think that she needs help dealing with your father's death."

 

Ray didn't say a word, he simply pulled her closer to him, not wanting to let go. 

 

"Tell me a story," he said in response. "A good one that you would tell the kids so they don't have bad dreams."

 

"You want a bedtime story?," she asked, peering blearily up at him. "You're having bad dreams?"

 

"Yeah," he said. "I dream of it. Of not being able to do anything. Of seeing him like that."

 

"Oh, honey...," she breathed, looking up at him with sad eyes. "You know you did your best, right?"

 

Ray silently shook his head. She clucked lightly in response.

 

"I'll tell you one story," she sighed. "One, that's it. And after we'll go to bed."
