 She got sicker and sicker. Finally, she asked Where it is? I say God took it. He took it. He took it while I was sleeping. Kilt it out there in the woods. Kill this one too, if he can.

He acts like he can’t stand me no more. Say I’m evil and always up to no good. He took my other little baby, a boy this time. But I don’t think he kilts it. I think he sold it to a man and his wife over Monticello.


I got breasts full of milk running down myself. He says Why don’t you look decent? Put on something. But what I’m sposed to put on? I don’t have anything. I keep hoping he find somebody to marry. I see him looking at my little sister. She scared. But I say I’ll take care of you. With God's help.

He comes home with a girl from around Gray. She is my age but they married. He is on her all the time. She walks around like she doesn’t know what hit her. I think she thought she loves him. But he got so many of us. All needing something. My little sister Nettie is got a boyfriend in the same shape almost as Pa. His wife died.

She the oldest anyway. She ought to marry first. She ain’t fresh tho, but I spect you know that. She spoiled. Twice. But you don’t need a fresh woman no how. I got a fresh one in there myself and she was sick all the time. He spits, over the railing. The children git on her nerve, she not much of a cook. And she is big already.


Mr. _____ he doesn’t say anything. I stop crying I’m so surprised. She is ugly. He says. But she ain’t no stranger to hard work. And she clean. And God done fixed her. You can do everything just like you want to and she ain’t gonna make you feed it or clothe it. Mr. _____ still doesn’t say anything. I take out the picture of Shug Avery. I look into her eyes. Her eyes say Yeah, it bees that way sometimes. Fact is, he said, I got to get rid of her. She is too old to be living here at home. And she a bad influence on my other girls. She’d come with her own linen. She can take that cow she raises down there back of the crib. But Nettie you flat out can’t have. Not now. Not never.
