Number 3773

I go by Elle Fairchild. I don’t know my real last name. My mother found me on the streets beside a dumpster where she used to sleep. That was twenty years ago. Some old indie folk song is playing in the funeral parlor, a sad song about an aimless wanderer. That was my mom, alright. […]
