I came down from the North Carolina mountains to visit and was spending the night with one of my aunts. She had a boyfriend who was living with her. I didn't especially like him at all. He seemed so 'seedy'.
I was glad to see my aunt, though I suspect she was jealous of me and later... I found out that she was. I'm sorry she ever distrusted me... I wouldn't have hurt her in that way. This is the aunt who beat me and left a bad scratch on my right arm... I have that scar today. I never held that against her.
The next morning she got up and asked me to ride with her to the post office. I hadn't dressed and still had on my long nightgown and said I would stay there. I noticed she hesitated to leave and later I understood.. at that time I wasn't used to her distrusting me and... didn't catch on at that time.
While she was gone I went to the kitchen and I heard her boyfriend calling me by my 'family' name. 'Fay-eee, Fay-eeee'. I didn't feel good at all listening to 'how' he was saying it, not at all.
I stayed in the kitchen and asked what did he want and he asked me to come there. He wouldn't quit calling me and I was so nervous. I walked to their bedroom door and told him I wasn't coming in there and to quit calling me! He was still in bed and was trying to get me to come there. He was so disgusting.
I went back into the kitchen to wait until my aunt came home. Fay-eeee, Fay-eeeee, Fay-eee, come here! I prayed for my aunt to hurry and come home and... my prayers were answered. She came home and I could tell she'd been worried at 'what would happen while she was gone'.
I acted as if nothing happened, never telling her about her seedy boyfriend. I couldn't hurt her.... and I hadn't done anything wrong. In my 'family'.. no matter if you do nothing wrong you will be thought of as ... if you had.
I hate for someone to call me 'Faye'..... it never bodes well at all. Never.
It means I'm either in trouble.. or someone is going to cause me trouble. I don't trust anyone who calls me 'Faye'. Only a few cousins can do that and I don't mind... I call them by family names, too.
I have alot of 'Faye' stories... eventually I will tell alot of them.
