The narrator is a speech and behavioural therapist who works with a young autistic boy, Wilbur. Wilbur seems to point out the narrator's self-harm scars, naming a burn 'hot'. The narrator works with Wilbur for a long time, though with little hope, until one day they find Wilbur having beaten the side of his own head.
