Sample text

When she was around a year old and I was a certain age, probably about four, I was responsible for her welfare. My duties were to wash and feed her, and watch over her. Shekila and I used to sleep in the same bed, and when we woke, I would fetch her whatever breakfast I could find. We used to play together: peekaboo and hide-and- seek. Shekila was so tiny and beautiful. She had short, curly hair, and was usually dressed in a dirty white frock. She loved being with me and followed me everywhere, and I protected her and was always on alert to hear if anyone had mistreated her.

At the insistence of his new wife, he even tried to force us to leave the area so that he could be free of the burden that our presence brought to bear. But my mother had no money to leave, nowhere to live, and no other way to survive. Her small web of support didn’t extend beyond our neighborhood. Eventually, my father and his wife quit the area themselves and moved to another village, which improved things for us a bit. I was too young to understand the separation of my parents. My father simply wasn’t around.

My stomach rumbled as I watched my mother put two delicious-smelling fried eggs on an aluminum plate. I thought, I hope she gives me the first batch, but instead she gave it to Shekila. I couldn’t help myself—I nabbed an egg from my sister’s plate and ran out the door, ignoring her earsplitting cry of protest. I didn’t get punished, probably because my mother realized how ravenous I was. On another occasion I woke early feeling very hungry, but there was nothing to eat in the house. I remembered having noticed a field of ripening tomatoes nearby, and went out determined to lay my hands on some.
