Umber (47.4 — Oleander’s Story)

August 9, 2012 § 1 Comment

Scared, I ran out the door all the way back home.  I ran inside, slamming the screen door, and yelled “Mama!”

“What’s the matter, Olly Belle?

“Daddy’s really mad at me, because I walked into Julie’s house, but I heard them there, and they didn’t answer me, so I went in, and—“

A long pause, and then, “And what, honey?”

I burst into tears.  “I think Daddy loves her better than us!”

I explained as best I could what I had seen at Julie’s house.  Mama’s face turned kind of white, then bright red.  But she didn’t look quite as surprised as I thought she would.
