I am reading. Harry Potter, by J. K. Rowling. I love these books. There, the magic exists ! It's so wonderful ! I'd love to go at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Even if these are children books, I like them very much. Even if I am an adult of 43 years old. But I still live at my parent's, so I guess that I'm still a child somewhere. 
I'm astronomer. Oh, and my name is Arthur. Like Arthur Weasley, my favorite character in Harry Potter.  I hear footsteps and I precipitally hide my book and take a container of pudding. You see, I am supposed to be cleaning the dish. Yeah, it is one of the terms of staying in my parent's house : clean it. Every week. My dad walked in the kitchen. 
"Hi, dad !" I say. 
He doesn't answer. I hear him sit on a chair.
"Dad ?" 
I let go of my pudding container and turn. 
He is crying ! And then he stops. I get near him. He smells alcohol. He is drunk !
