In my dream, I answer the phone. Mum is on the other end, crying.

My stepfather is in a heap at the foot of the stairs, dead. None of us were there when it happened.

In my dream, I try to twist her words, turn them round so that it's my stepfather who has found a grandmother, dead.

In my dream, I try to restore a natural order to the events, to bring my stepfather back.

In my dream, I can wiggle this bit, move that bit and make some sense of it. He laughs at us all for being silly.

I wake up. The phone is ringing, Mum is crying, and we have to take some clothes to the funeral director's for him.
