Happiness, Like Water.

You are an emotionally abusive mother whose greatest function in my life has been to perpetuate your husband's abuse. It has always been and always will be about him. About not making him angry, about taking care of him, about giving him food this way and that. He will always be your number one priority. And so you see, I have no business being here.'

THE THING AROUND YOUR NECK

You did not know eighteen years ago that the way your grandmama favored your brother could make you hate your brother so much that you would devise a plan to harm him by saying there is a snake on the tree, hoping that he would just hurt his leg. You did not know that he would instead hit his head on a stone during the fall and that he would die immediately. You did not know that you would fall in love with your cousin brother and that he also,  would walk away from your heartbreaking self eighteen years later in the place your brother died and where your grand-mama was buried.
