First Sentence Friday! Chapter Eight

As kids, my brother and I always hated when our parents argued.  We’d want it to end quickly and without any long term sense of discord in the house.  My Dad was soft spoken, and I rarely heard him raise his voice.  Mom was more apt to be feisty and the most vocal.  Everyone has their own way; speak their mind, or go silent.  Yell, or remain calm.  Blow up, be done with it, or stew for days.

You can imagine, considering the circumstances Wallis Ann and her family finds themselves in, there are strong opinions about certain decisions.  Some are a matter of life or death. Tempers flare more often and quickly because, as time goes on and reality sinks in, there comes a feeling of hopelessness.

Sometimes the familial unit will start to erode, disintegrate, just like the mountainsides and homes washed away by the storm.
