Do you have to go? Elsie asks.

Iris is sat, not nibbling on marmite toast.

It’s good for us. It’s good

for you that we’re in love.

No, she says, frustrated by

my lack of knowledge.

It’s a line from Frozen.

‘Do you have to go?’

Iris bites her lip, bravely.

It’s what Elsa says just

before her parents die.

Enough! I say

and Iris starts to cry.
