"After years of being on the receiving end of selifsh irresponsibility, my day had finally come. Sometimes words are pale, and perfect gestures spring from the heart of our pain. As I rounded the corner and within sight of the pair, I swung my full skirt out, a rebellious flick and I was gone. It was a signal of pure gallus defiance that no words could have expressed."
