Loving: A Novel By Corin Hughs

Day 4 of Kindergarten: “But I’m Scared!”

My heart hammered in my chest. Standing a few yards away, I watched two of the people I love most in the world: My husband and my daughter. White knuckling the double stroller handle where two more of the people I love most sat, I heard the words, “But I’m scared!”
