I like this chapter, maybe even the best. I really like how Keisha relates to Regina, and how she relates the experience to her own life. She seems so innocent but so wise at the same time
Thanks. Now I gotta top this. No pressure.
I figured that someone who lost her mother would not be so quick to dismiss that mother-child relationship. Someone who lived with a parent who doesn’t care about her well-being (or is too fucked up to, as Willy is) would feel very differently about a parent who likely cares a bit too much.
I also wanted someone who could interact with Regina in a normal way. Hatred and fear tend to be the default mode for people interacting with her, and I wanted someone who didn’t automatically leap to that response.
I wonder how Adam would feel about this little exchange if he knew about it.
