Cast of Wonders 334: Secrets and Things We Don’t Say Out Loud is a Cast of Wonders original.

José Pablo Iriarte is a Cuban-American writer, high school math teacher, and parent of two. José’s fiction can be found in in magazines such as Lightspeed, Strange Horizons, Fireside Fiction, and others. Learn more at, or look for José on twitter @labyrinthrat.

Devin is uncomfortable with writing bios about himself, but is struggling through it. He lives in Southern Ontario in Canada, where he alternates between working on various costumes, writing stories of his own, and (when his very loud cat gifts him with silence) narrating stories for others to enjoy.

Blame cabin fever–I don’t usually do stupid things.

I’m not supposed to leave the motel room while Kathleen is out looking for stuff she can resell at the flea market. Not if I want to avoid being sent back to the lab. The homeschool worksheets she leaves for me are stupid, though, and nothing is on TV. I’ve been in this town — Anderson, or Henderson, or some other last name — for weeks without seeing anything. At least, nothing beyond what I could spot through the room’s only window, or on trips with Kathleen to the grocery store half a mile down Route 81.
