She's gone, no longer with my father. She is with someone else. Some single man somewhere. It's against the law. They know it. There's money involved.

I have reported it to the authorities. Expressed my displeasure. They say they are watchful, have heard this story before. They are looking.

Here am I, the only son. I have no wife. Who will be with me. I sweep the leaves, wash the stone, honor my father who sleeps here alone. Think of my mother before all of this. Before they robbed her grave. Before she filled the space of someone else's need.

    This is a fascinating true story, D.M. It sounds like there might be quite a bit more to it as yet untold. Intriguing!

    Yes, you are right. I may return to this.
