EXCERPT (Book #1, Playmates):
"All things truly wicked start from innocence."
~ Ernest Hemingway
[Chapter 3: Trevor]
They must have thought us dumb or deaf, but Tania and I heard their hushed voices about how Viktor AKA Dad was often "very rough" with Mom when they were "doing it," till Mom was considering a "vajayjay reconstruction." Mom said something about being "his slave" too.
"Oh, Angela," Barbara said in a tone that said she knew just what Mom was talking about.
Mom always said "doing it." Susan's phrase was "when Jim and I…you know." Barbara's phrase was simply "when we."
"When we...what?" Tania would silently mouth to me every time we heard that phrase.
Tania and I used to play a game where we'd try to figure out what "it" meant. Going to the store? Watching a certain TV show? Checking out a new car? The possibilities were endless.
We somehow knew what "it" was after viewing mom "joining to" That Man in her room that day.
And that for some reason, it was not to be mentioned or talked about, or Tania would probably be smacked across the face before we'd both be turned into Mom's Slaves to do chores like scrubbing the sinks, toilet bowls and kitchen counters until they shone.
"Hey," Tania whispered. We were playing a Call of Duty video game while Barbara was fretting about her fourteen year old girl being "maybe pregnant when she…"
"Why does Momma only talk about Dad when he's not around?"
I shrugged. Tania liked to ask me questions that I didn't know the answer to. This told me she probably was very smart to even think of such questions in the first place.
"Do you prefer Mom or Dad?" Tania asked, twirling some of her hair in her fingers.
"Dad," I answered without skipping a beat.
So we both felt the same, even though Dad was "very rough."
That Man with the cowboy hat had been very rough with Mom too.
That's where I first learned what being A Man was all about.
