I wish I could answer her question. It was the only thing she had said to me all day, and I couldn’t tell her yes or no. I didn’t know for sure. “Is he the one?” she asked as she looked up to me with tears in her eyes. “I hope so,” I said answering
“YOU ARE NOT MY MOTHER!” she screamed,her little face turning beet red. No, I’m not, but that was beside the point. Eve had been in my life since she was a little one and I was the only person she could count on, the only person who knew her secrets. “Please just go away, I
I wonder sometimes how Eve came into my life. Actually, I know nothing at all about my life before Eve. The first things I remember are from when she was 4 years old (at least, she told me she was 4). I’ve asked questions of the people nearest me and I’ve talked to my doctors.
