Jamaica by Michael Crane

My father left my mother today. He caught a taxi to the airport and boarded a plane to Mexico. This confused my mother as she didn’t believe he knew anyone there. I was my parents’ only child, and close to my father as any daughter could be. I stayed with my mother for six weeks. ‘Why did he leave? Why did he go there?’ my mother always asked me, but I didn’t know the answers to her questions.
