Excerpt from Manuscript – Dear Paxton
Lisa was awoken by screams coming from the kitchen, followed by the sound of shattering glass. She ran out into the kitchen to see her mother sitting on the tile floor, sobbing with her head down on her knees. Lying beside her was a note that Mimi had left behind that morning.
“How could she, how could she do this to me?” All Lisa could do was to sit down on the floor next to her mother, while comforting her the best that she knew how.
“What’s the matter? What happened?” Lisa asked.
“Your sister just left me this note.” Shirley handed the note to Lisa, waiting patiently as she read through it, two times before understanding the contents of the words.
