A flock of crows storms towards me, an advancing army of out-stretched talons and open beaks.
It’s a rainy day and maybe that’s how it’s supposed to be. I don’t know, I’ve never been to something like this before. My parents have. Because it’s something selfless. It’s something good to do; to stand by your neighbours and friends when someone they loved dies. You help them get through it. That way, they can help you again. It’s al bout being selfless, my father always says. I am holding his hand while we walk over the graveyard. My brother Caleb holds my mom’s hand. I am still a young child, so I am not corrected in my curious stares by my neighbours. Would I be older than ten, I most certainly would.
My eyes go over all our neighbours. I know them from meetings, I know them from community services or from school. They are all dressed in dark grey, of course, all looking slightly down. It’s sad when someone dies. They leave.
My mom told me I should help the son. It’s extra sad for him, because he’s just two years older than me. And he just lost a parent and my mom says people like that need help and I should give it. I should offer all the help I have.
I spot the boy next to the grave. He’s not looking at anyone, just at the grass. He’s not holding his dad’s hand, either. His hands are on his back. I feel sad for him. I don’t know him from school, though. I don’t know him at all. My dad knows his dad and we’re here to help. Always help. I’m not going to offer him my help, though. He doesn’t seem like he wants it. And I’m not very good at Selflessness anyway.
I hear the father say something to the boy. Tobias, he says, Don’t be so selfish, look up at the people, they are here for you. The boy looks up immediately, as if he’s afraid. Or maybe he’s just good at being selfless. Because we’re supposed to listen to our parents. But Tobias, he just looks sad.
I am Selfish. I am Brave.
