gif: flowers in the attic


“People use the color yellow to symbolize hope. Yellow. Like the sun we rarely saw. When I was very young, I thought life would be like one, long and perfect summer day; after all, it started out that way. We were four beautiful children with blonde hair and porcelain skin. People said we looked like those fancy Dresden dolls that grace shelves and mantles — only we weren't just admired, we were really loved. But that was before. Life is full of surprises, my mother used to say… and greed and fear and shame, as I soon learned. And hopelessness. We never colored even one of our paper flowers yellow.”

My dad and I watching Flowers in the Attic
  • Dad: She must be inheriting a lot of money
  • Me: What do you mean?
  • Dad: Well, it's worth murdering her kids over. I wouldn't kill you for ten million dollars
  • Me: Oh than-
  • Dad: Now a HUNDRED million dollars...
  • Me: ...
  • Dad: Well I'd at least have to consider it. I love you, but I could buy like fifty kids with a hundred million dollars and get a nice boat
