There, just like Sandy said, is a path that runs parallel along the side of the house. My spirits lift. I run, crouched down, close to the ground. The pebbled path crunches underfoot. Halfway to the gate, I see a rectangle of light on the wood fence. I stop at eye level with the picture window’s bottom ledge. I look through the window and see a dining room.

I was twelve when I started riding my bike to the park. I rode around the fruit loop and stared at men sunbathing on the grass slope. They all wore tiny bits of stretchy fabric that were designed to show off their muscular bodies and big dicks. In my mind’s eye, beneath its bright, midafternoon sun, the men’s bodies glisten, their tan skin slick with oil. I set myself down in the middle of them.
