My father sat us three in the living room and said, “If I told you that tomorrow, every law expires. Everything is legal for one day. What would you do?”
My sister clapped her hands eagerly. “Easy. I’d rob a bank.”
“I’d steal Andy’s bike,” my young brother said. “And his PS4.”
“And you, Thomas,” Dad said. “Does my eldest also have the ambitions of a thief?”
“No,” I said, feeling my neck reddening.
“What would you do, then?”
I cleared my throat. “I’d marry Mark.”
I guess they had to know eventually.
