“My trip to hell started around four o’clock at the St. Andrew subway station. I wanted to beat the crush of people heading north on the Yonge branch or at least have the luxury of sitting down. My stomach didn’t feel great and had bothered me all day. I hoped it was just the flu because I didn’t want to be pregnant again. That was what the Pill was for. The guy had used a condom too, just like the one from last year, but I didn’t know what he was until it was too late. Angels are real considerate that way.
You’d figure I’d have learned to watch out for them by now. They’re always too good to be true, too beautiful, too charming, kind of like some gay men I’ve met. Amazing, except for one little thing.”
