At first, there was nothing. There was just a space. Nothing. And then there was a fateful January day. And something started to grow up in that space. Something grew up in between us that was not either of us, but came from both of us. A late May day the next year, we promised to always be with each other, no matter what, and the space filled up. And two years later, from that nothing and something between us, suddenly there was something tangible. A something that swelled my body, and squirmed around inside of me, and was born on that cold February day to become Christopher.
From nothing, something. And that something is growing, and giggling, and squirming, and rolling over, and one day, all of a sudden, he will be like us. He will be an adult. Just. like. that. Something from Nothing.
