Quick Fiction: Beyond he-said-she-said

It all boils down to this: did he, or didn’t he? Are her words truth or lies?

Her mother has lost fifteen pounds. Her aunts won’t take her calls.  Her grandmother wonders why she is doing this to them all. After all, she always seemed happy enough.

Her younger sister, just turned eight, is oblivious to the pain swirling around them. They have changed her routine to protect her from the accusations, the “ongoing investigation.”

“You want to understand why, Grandma? Why now? Because of her. I was her age when it started.”
