  • It was that father-daughter dance.

    And he was my mom's affair.

    But he stood next to my mom as she told the cops to take my stepdad away.

    He made her believe that she was beautiful/worthy and told me I was pretty.

    He didn't even hesitate when they announced that fathers should take their daughters to the dance floor.

    He took my hand and took the lead.
