February 10, 2018:

With her wigs and her rollerblades.

Her cuteness, her intelligence, and her tiny shirt pulled up.

Her compassion, her empathy. Her supportiveness.

Her "bratty" wheedling for money which undercuts it all.

That's her word, "bratty".

I dislike it and because of the wheedling I mistrust her when I truly wish not to.

Where stress and suspicion come from unlikely directions.
