This can't be happening to me

Several years ago, as part of an assignment for Linda Spear’s writers’ workshop, I began developing a short story. With a dear friend’s permission, I wrote of her long-ago troubling encounter; again, with her permission, I am sharing it with you.

It’s that place I used to refer to my daughter as her hoo-hoo. But it certainly wasn’t a happy ...
