Despicable Missy #7

by

She didn’t see me. I can breathe.
Mama has always told me to keep away from boys with no prospects. My father, she would repeat every day to whom would listen, was a good for nothing lazy bum and though I had inherited his good looks, I also inherited his stupidity.
As a child, I tried hard to please her to make up for Father’s shortcomings. You see, he left us for Dorothy, the widow down the road. I can’t say I blamed him, I can still hear her singing “Stand by your Man,” looking at him with adoring eyes.

    Well he was a good looking feller after all, so Mama can perhaps be excused for that.

    Thanks Neville. Mama’s character is developing slowly in my mind. I feel sorry for Missy to be stuck with a Mum who projects onto her all the bitterness she feels towards the father. We shall see.
