You are five years old.
You have an aunt who is only nine years older — she’s your babysitter today.
You wake up to a strange man raising his voice toward her. The first thing you hear is:
“If you wake her up, I’ll kill her.” The first thing you see is her face,
The second thing you see is a gun. She tells you to stay asleep, or at least to pretend. Then he takes her to another room.
