I kind of want to throw this into or around the unnamed teenage hacker book, a bit like the Julian chapter in Wonder. It offers another perspective on Lori’s relationship (or lack thereof) with her sister. It was written quite impulsively at around 7 A.M. on a Friday, when I should’ve been preparing for something school-related instead, but such is the writing life!
“Deanna, be a good girl and…”
“Mrs. Montgomery, what did you do to deserve such a darling little angel of a daughter?”
“Mr. Montgomery, you should be proud of your daughters. They’ll go far.”
Daughters. Plural. With an S. Did I mention I, Deanna Montgomery, have a sister? Her name’s Lorraine and though we look identical on the outside, we couldn’t be more different on the inside. We could be similar. We used to be. But sometimes, it’s almost like she’s actually trying to be my opposite on purpose. I guess she thinks I’m supposed to be the good one too.
