When she gets home from work, it wakes him up. One time he left a tap on for six hours and the kitchen flooded. It's hard trying to work out exactly what it is that's made him end up like this. I think he thinks if he stays asleep long enough, whatever has happened will all bleed away. I think it's the same thing he thinks about when he stands in the garden and smokes all his cigarettes and looks up at the sky.

There's a feeling that I want, but I can't put it into words. My mother says something about Luke and I think about his dad and I agree. There's no point not to. For a second I think she wants to come to the funeral and I panic more than I thought I would, which surprises me. I misheard her. She's not coming to the funeral. I wasn't properly listening. 45 People must think about funerals in different ways. Some people know more dead people than their friends do. That'd change things. I'm not too worried about being sad because I doubt if I will be but I am worried about things feeling too much.
