“I am convinced that human life is filled with many pure, happy, serene examples of insincerity, truly splendid of their kind-of people deceiving one another without (strangely enough) any wounds being inflicted, of people who seem unaware even that they are deceiving one another.”

I didn’t know how long my sisters and I lay there together, just like we had once shared that carved bed in that dilapidated cottage. then - back then, we had kicked and twisted and fought for any bit of space, any breathing room. but that morning, as the sun rose over the world, we held tight. and did not let go.

“Did you know, that one summer, when I was seventeen, Elain bought me some paint? We’d had just enough to spend on extra things, and she bought me and Nesta presents. She didn’t have enough for a full set, but bought me r e d and b l u e and y e l l o w. I used them to the last drop, stretching them as much as I could, and painted little decorations in our cottage… I painted the table, the cabinets, the doorway… And we had this old, black dresser in our room- one drawer for each of us.”
