Overview

She is angry sure with me.
She knows I’m here. She always knows.
But I’m here anyway. I’m out of her way. Not under her feet, making her mad at me, always under her feet.
There are not so many places to hide. Our apartment is small. She’s found them all. This is the best, though. This is where she looks last. Sometimes she even forgets it’s here, and then, after a while, she forgets me, too. Some of the time. Not most of the time. Most of the time she finds me, even if I’m here.
It’s very quiet in here, and outside, too. I listen to know when she moves so I can be ready when she comes. It’s best to be ready when she comes.
Something tickles. Tickles my face. It’s a dress. The long blue one with the cocoa stain I think, tickling. But I mustn’t move. I must be quieter than a mouse. I mustn’t move. That would tell her sure I am here. Wake her up. Make her find me.
She’s not in her bed this time. She’s on the floor. Tired sure. Tired of me under her feet all the time.
I have to pee, though. I really have to pee.
I’m late for school again sure. It’s the second day in a row I’ve not gone to school. Mrs. Ferguson will wonder where I am and will call her so tired on the floor and perhaps wake her up her phone rings so loud. It’s already rung two or three or four times, I don’t know I haven’t counted the times, though I know how to count, that’s one of the things I do the best is what she’s told mom, Mrs. Ferguson. And now mom’s on the floor outside the bathroom and I really have to pee. I can’t though. She’s in the way and I’ll wake her up sure. She can smell me, she says, when I come too near and that wakes her up, she’s told me that more than once, though I haven’t counted those times either.

Meet the Author

Ulf is a Swedish name that once meant Wolf. So, yes, Wolf Wolf, that’s me.

I was born Ulf Ronnquist one snowy night in late October, in one of those northern Swedish towns that are little more than a clearing in the forest.

Fast forward through twenty Swedish years, ten or so English ones, and another twenty-four in the US and you’ll find me in front of an immigrations officer conducting the final citizenship interview, at the end of which he asks me, “What name would you like on your passport?”

And here I recall what a friend had told me, that you can pick just about any name you want at this point, and I heard me say “Ulf Wolf.”

That’s how it happened. Scout’s honor.

Of course, I had been using Ulf Wolf as a pen name for some time before this interview, but I hadn’t really planned to adopt that as my official U.S. name. But I did.

I have written stories all my life. Initially in Swedish, but for the last twenty or so years in English. To date I have written six novels, four novellas and two scores of stories; along with many songs and poems.

My writing focus these days is on life’s important questions (in my view): Who are we? What are we doing here? And how do we break out of this prison?
