Write about: the attack.
Happy to report that Max is fine, just going through normal teething stuff. Nothing to worry about, no teeth need to be pulled.
Though the dentist did think that with things looking so crowded in there that Max is likely headed for braces later in life.
Hopefully not, but I'll take the good news for now.
He never suspected it was coming. Later, once the debris had finally settled, he would wonder why that was. There were signs; of course there were. Hints of the violence that would shatter his life, break his faith, were plentiful.
If he'd been looking for them they would not have been hard to spot. If he'd had any reason to be suspicious. If he had trusted a little less, questioned a little more.
If, if, if...
The lesson has been learned though. His defenses, rebuilt and reinforced, are firmly in place at all times now. Weaknesses have been shored up or eliminated entirely. There will be no further dropping of guards, or slips in attentiveness.
He will never be hurt like that again.
