useless objectsI used to be blond but now my hair is blackI used to be strong but now I am weakI used to be pretty but now I look sickIt is true I suffer migraines since my accidentIt is true I do not suffer foolsI like a twist of meaning You see Suffer migraines Do not suffer fools The word means almost the same as it did in the previous sentence but not uiteSufferYou could say it means endure but that s not exactly rightMy story starts before the accident June of the summer I was fifteen my father ran off with some woman he lovedthan usDad was a middling successful professor of military history Back then I adored him He wore tweed jackets He was gaunt He drank milky tea He was fond of board games and let me win fond of boats and taught me to kayak fond of bicycles books and art museumsHe was never fond of dogs and it was a sign of how much he loved my mother that he let our golden retrievers sleep on the sofas and walked them three miles every morning He was never fond of my grandparents either and it was a sign of how much he loved both me and Mummy that he spent every summer in Windemere House on Beechwood Island writing articles on wars fought long ago and putting on a smile for the relatives at every mealThat June summer fifteen Dad announced he was leaving and departed two days later He told my mother he wasn t a Sinclair and couldn t try to be one any longer He

suitcase into the backseat of the Mercedes he was leaving Mummy with only the Saab and started the engineThen he pulled out a handgun and shot me in the chest I was standing on the lawn and I fell The bullet hole opened wide and my heart rolled out of my rib cage and down into a flower bed Blood gushed rhythmically from my open woundthen from my eyesmy earsmy mouthIt tasted like salt and failure The bright red shame of being unloved soaked the grass in front of our house the bricks of the path the steps to the porch My heart spasmed among the peonies like a troutMummy snapped She said to get hold of myselfBe normal now she said Right now she saidBecause you are Because you can be Don t cause a scene she told me Breathe and sit upI did what she askedShe was all I had leftMummy and I tilted our suare chins high as Dad drove down the hill Then we went indoors and trashed the gifts he d given us jewelry clothes books anything In the days that followed we got rid of the couch and armchairs my parents had bought together Tossed the wedding china the silver the photographsWe purchased new furniture Hired a decorator Placed an order for Tiffany silverware Spent a day walking through art galleries and bought paintings to cover the empty spaces on our wallsWe asked Granddad s lawyers to secure Mummy s assetsThen we packed our bags and went to Beechwood IslandPenny Carrie and Bess are the daughters of Tipper and Harris Sinclair Harris came into his money at twenty one after Harvard and grew the fortune doing business I never bothered to understand He inherited houses and land He made intelligent decisions about the stock market He married Tipper and kept her in the kitchen and the garden He put her on display in pearls and on sailboats She seemed to enjoy itGranddad s only failure was that he never had a son but no matter The Sinclair daughters were sunburnt and blessed Tall merry and rich those girls were like princesses in a fairy tale They were known throughout Boston Harvard Yard and Martha s Vineyard for their cashmere cardigans and grand parties They were made for legends Made for princes and Ivy League schools ivory statues and majestic housesGranddad and Tipper loved the girls so they couldn t say whom they loved best First Carrie then Penny then Bess then Carrie again There were splashy weddings with salmon and harpists then bright blond grandchildren and funny blond dogs No one could ever have been prouder of their beautiful American girls than Tipper and Harris were back thenThey built three new houses on their craggy private island
