Year 4, Day 271
I don’t know how much longer I can stand this.
Meerkat built a hut for the birth, and informed Giraffe and me that this was a women’s mystery and we were most emphatically not welcome.
Songbird just screamed again. How can a man do this to a woman? But they don’t know they are responsible.
The screams are bad enough, but I’m also sharing the pain. No wonder the fathers I’ve known have looked so drained after a birth! A father worthy of the name is expected to mind-link with his mate to help her through the birth process. And I think Giraffe would if he could, even though he has no idea that he had anything to do with this.
Could I trade on being considered a god to override Meerkat’s exclusion of males?
