I've started posting the chapters of Resolution 786. I'll post each successive chapter roughly every 3 or 4 days. Here's Chapter 5:
“Adam.” Fatima always pronounced her son’s name in its Arabic form, with an “Ah” sound at the beginning. She held back sobs as he drew close. They were together, alone, in the echoing family room of their large Nairobi home.
“Your Daddy is gone,” she said in her characteristic Pakistani accent, tears streaked down her face.
“I know. Kampala. For work.”
“No, Adam. He is gone,” she repeated, whispering, more insistent.
“I’m sorry.” She held him, cupping his head against her chest, sobbing.
