On the one hand, the enormous implications of chance and fate filled Jessica with resentment. Jessica fell back into her seat, holding her stomach as she laughed. The house was framed by the skeletons of maple trees.
On the other hand, being an optimist by nature, she took heart, counted her blessings, and silently acknowledged that the very brightest jewels are forged in crucibles of violence and flame.

Jessica's maternal grandfather could not have had any idea what to expect, but he did not imagine, in the farthest reaches of his imagination, that his long lost granddaughter would pull up in a chauffeur driven limousine. Jessica's grandfather had spent enough decades in law enforcement, prior to his retirement, to recognize the bulge of a shoulder holster.
Mummy, Carol Turner, had so thoroughly obliterated all traces of her former life, and so adamantly refused to discuss it, that Jessica did not know her mother's maiden name!

In that alter-reality, she might have first caught his eye at nine or ten years of age. Still, she felt unconscionably guilty, just going up to four or five, for Mr. She would have to confront Nelson later, and confess, and make an act of contrition, and endure the fury of his wrath.
