“Did my confession make us closer? I killed the pope. Huddled next to you, burrowed along your side, face down in supplication: I’m ruined, I’ve been corrupted forever, Bà Ngoại. When you told everyone I was your favorite, was this before or after I confessed? One’s the prodigal son, the other is his brother. Either story works for me. On my birthday, too many lines and the pope dies."
