Killing Them with Kindness

My great aunt, the one whose husband recently died, the one who treated me with such cold disdain for much of my life, especially when I was young.

The one who looked through me and up and down and found me lacking.

I didn’t attend her husband’s services, but made sure an expensive and tasteful bouquet and large fruit basket was sent to her home from the last remaining of her sister’s clan.
