Mommy had been gone longer than usual this time. But she always came back. She always came back. And when she did, she would be happy again and bring him things from far away and say he had grown so much, and he would sleep in his room in their apartment which was right next to Meme and Momo’s apartment. It was a bit silly that they didn’t all live together, but he knew there were all sorts of families and this was his, so it was ok.
Something was wrong though. The other day Meme had almost forgotten to bring Mordred’s lunch when they left for school. He did forget the apple, but Mordred didn’t say anything. He had to be good now and not ask too many questions or be difficult, because Meme looked a bit like Mommy would look before she would leave again. He looked a bit sad and he was moving about a lot and talking on the phone. He hoped Meme wasn’t going away. Freya down on the second floor was nice enough as a sitter, but she had school and such and had to go home before 11 in the evening and Momo wasn’t allowed to use the stove without permission so he couldn’t make any dinner. Unless there was bread, then he’d be fine. He could go to nana Hunnith. She was not well, but he knew how to make pancakes AND he could fix a frozen pizza like a pro if she helped just a little bit.
Gawin had been around a lot these last days. Gawin is cool. He has long hair like a rock star and they had played Nintendo Wii together while D.. while Meme made dinner.
But that was before they had the talk. And Mordred didn’t feel like playing Wii anymore after that.
Mordred wasn’t at school even though it was a school day. Gawin had bought him a Lego space ship, saying that things might get a bit boring. And it did, they were there for hours talking and talking and talking. The woman and the man with the funny eyebrows said that the man, his uncle, only wanted to meet him and talk to him for a little while and then he could come back. Meme and Gawin had promised that they would wait for him. But Mordred knew something the man didn’t. The man who was his uncle wanted to take him away.
He didn’t really hear what the uncle man said except he lived far away and had a big house. All he could think about what that if he wasn’t home, then Mommy couldn’t find him and then she would never come home anymore. And there would be no Meme there, only strangers. Only strangers and no Meme and no Mommy. He tried to be brave. He tried so hard, but he couldn’t. The uncle looked sad and that only made it worse. It wasn’t fair! The uncle was there to take Mordred away, he didn’t get to be sad! He was a thief! A stupid, greedy thief!
Meme had waited like he said he would and he held Mordred like he had when Mordred was little. For one tiny moment Mordred was angry at Mommy for not being there and make thing better, and then he felt bad for being mad at Mommy and he cried a little bit more. Meme didn’t mind that Mordred was little sometimes and now Mordred felt very very little.
