Why not go out with a hat trick?  My friend Moira Moody has an excellent short story in The Monongahela Review:

“That leak is very tiny,” she says. “And your father loves you very much. He loves you so much that he knows that if he knew about that tiny leak, came to the house and saw you, he would never be able to leave again. And he must, Qi.” What she says isn’t truly a lie. “That’s why I told him to go away when he came to the door.”

Want more?  The story is called “The Great Yu” and it begins on page 57.
