She asked me to listen to her read out loud. It is a book she is reading for school. I said yes, I would listen. We laid next to each other in my bed and I kept the TV on. I only half-listened to her reading out loud. I was watching a movie, you see, so I only half-listened to her reading her book to me. All of a sudden she burst into tears. Loud, sobbing tears. I asked, what is wrong?? Why are you crying?? Through tears she told me, “she died!” She kept crying on my shoulder. She was so upset. I wasn’t listening, I didn’t hear the story, I didn’t know who died, I was watching the movie. She re-grouped and started reading the book to me again. I turned off the TV and listened.
