An image of the universe filled the TV screen. It was a universe that was infinite and yet somehow forever expanding. I remembered how some people at church had believed the universe was a trick from God. They’d said God had hung it up, like a curtain, to test our faith. There was something about this that I wanted to tell Alex, but it was like looking through tracing paper, and I couldn’t see what it was. I wished I could just peel myself open, so he could see what I was really made of.
