The developers had surrounded us. Penned us in and talked my sister into selling. 3 million for all the lots.

My mother was telling her through the aether that it was a fine price.

I was even going to get some outlay.

But I wandered the length of the property and sat at the window on the south side in my mother’s old bedroom.
