The words peck away at me as I climb high above the fjord and stand on Preken Rock. The white night is full with pine gum and birdsong, but I’m gasping and only getting snippets of air. It’s the cold mountain wind that makes my eyes water up. Not the hundred metres of nothingness to the sea. Not the sound of his crying.
I stole a baby.
Does that make me a bad person?
Yeah. It does.
