Not Keith's! OURS! Everythin here is OURS, not yers alone! ” From then on Jane became Our Jane, and was called that until eventually all of us forgot that once upon a time our youngest, sweetest, frailest, had only one name. I knew about names and what they could do. My own name was both a blessing and a curse. I tried to make myself believe such a “spiritual” name had to be a blessingwhy, who else in the whole wide world had a name like Heaven Leigh? No one, no one, whispered the little bluebird of happiness who lived now and then in my brain, singing me to sleep and telling me that everything, in the long run, would work out just fine .
At that time I didn't even know why Shirley's Place was such a bad place, and why Pa's going there caused so much trouble. Our cabin floor, with half-inch spacings between each crookedly laid board, let in not only cold air but also the snortings of the sleeping pigs, dogs, cats, and whatever else took retreat under it. Out of the black suddenly came a different kind of noise. Who was moving in the darkness of the dim red glow near the stove? I strained to see it was Granny, bent over, he - I - long gray hair streaming, making her seem a witch sliding along the rough wooden planks as quietly as possible.
We'd no sooner finished our cones than Ma and Pa showed up in the doorway of the drugstore. ” Then he spied Miss Deale, who was hurriedly buying penny candy that Our Jane and Fanny were selecting with the greatest possible care, pointing to this piece, that piece. He strode toward us, wearing a cream-colored suit that Granny said my mother had bought for him on their two-week honeymoon in Atlanta. If I hadn't known differently, I would have thought Pa a handsome gentleman with culture, the way he looked in that suit.
