A Parting of the Ways


current time:

Suzanna and her sister have reached a parting of the ways. They struck a bad patch in their relationship when they argued over their ill mother. Suzanna didn’t want to pick a fight with her sister, but she could not agree about what to do with their mother who is very old. Suzanna just didn’t want to put her in an old folks home. Now they have decided to bury the hatchet. Suzanna is going to take care of their mother herself, and her sister will move into her own apartment. But they both know it is just paper over the cracks. Both of them are too strong to give up their opinions so easily. They are just like their mother.
