Umber (53.3 –Ervin’s Story)

October 5, 2012 § Leave a comment

She led me into the little house, and introduced me to an old Irish lady named Brigid.  A skinny, sickly little girl sat on the couch, holding a cat.

“Oleander, say hello to your cousin Ervin,” her mama told her.

Oleander smiled at me and said  “Hello, Cousin.”

The old lady brought us tea and a plate of coconut macaroons while Vera and I talked about all that had happened since the last time I’d seen her, on the day she’d eloped with Leroy.
