‘Only if you won’t convert me.’
He’s joking, but I have to make it clear I’m not a believer.
‘They think I’m the saviour. Because I survived. I think I lived because I wore boots with thick rubber soles.’

I have them in my bag. I carry them around because they remind me who I am.
‘Teach me and you won’t be the only one left. I never believed, but I want to know.’
