Mirror Mirror on the wall
I look into you for answers
WHO IS IT?
The face who's stolen my voice and soon to

I beg of you to appease my soul
I appeal for one last chance to see the

Her mother-in-law’s countenance betrayed some sort of subversive  secret she could barely put her finger on. Though she had lost a pregnancy earlier in her marriage, It had become impossible to  conceive and bear a child for over 7 years _An issue that has always been the white elephant in her mother-in-law presence … She barely talked about it with Lucia, but Lucia had eavesdropped a couple of confrontational moments between her and her son along the lines of -;
