Max shook her head, setting the tails in motion. Bless their hearts; they even wore little bow ties to church. Justin sits there and plays with his Game Boy, like, the entire time. I hugged her shoulders as we made our way to the door of the fellowship hall. Even she knew when to leave a subject alone. Lissa looped her arm through mine, skin clammy in the August heat. Even with the ocean breeze, the temperature was a muggy ninety degrees.

She was distracted because she found her false teeth in the freezer. Looking directly at me with blue eyes made startling by her leath- ery skin, she shook back her bangs, which were colored an impossible shade of blond. She folded her tattooed arms against her black tank top—although between the bracelets and the collection of gold neck chains she might as well have been wearing long sleeves and a turtleneck. Her voice was a cigarette alto I could have filed my nails on.
Her voice was reminding me more and more of gravel in a clothes dryer. Do you preach or just say stuff out of the Bible? But there was something earnest in those blue eyes. She opened the door and waved an arm through for Hazel. My kids are out of control. I need help before I kill them. With multipierced ears and the biker-chick attire, Hazel must have seemed like more than a whiff to Rebecca.
Lissa carried two bags of snacks into the kitchen. As the leader, I had to stay. Besides, I had never known Rebecca Godfried to be speechless before. My imp really wanted to see what happened next. As the rest of the moms trickled in, they all did double takes of Hazel. A couple of them slipped into the kitchen, obviously in pursuit of the lowdown on the new woman. Lissa had never had so much help putting store-bought cookies on a plate. Christine Michaels, the advertising executive whose only child was six months old, looked baffled as she glanced from me to Hazel to the customary notepad where she wrote things down.
My entire lesson plan had walked out when Hazel walked in. She was hitchhiking, and some trucker picked her up. All I could do was put my hand in front of my mouth to smother the kind of guilty giggles you get at a funeral. The entire tale was punctuated with a pair of glasses she took out of her bag but never put on. She was well into a rendition of her adolescent years before I realized the earpieces were exact replicas of Barbie-doll legs.
I kind of envied her panache. Lived in a log cabin. But I merely watched with increasing fascination while Hazel enchanted my group with an autobiography that grew more outrageous by the word. Christine sat with her pen poised over the notepad, one exquisite eyebrow arched in a frozen state of I- wasnt-expecting- this. Hazel laughed in a drawn-out wheeze that made me want to giggle right along with her. She looked to be at least forty. Of course considering the sun damage, maybe thirty-five. That would mean she was four years younger than I was and had somehow lived four times longer.
I had to admit, I was strangely hooked. Hazel put on the Barbie glasses and leveled her eyes at Rebecca. An outward-moving spray of lines radiated from them, the way a child draws a sun with a crayon. She sat up straighter. A minisermon was imminent. It was always a good idea to make her think she was right, lest she add the slicing, sideways look to the pursed lips. She was always the first one on the scene with a casserole when a family had a crisis, and she knew her Bible better than anybody in the congregation except Pastor Gary. I felt guilty every time I got a mental picture of her being baptized in vinegar.
Hazel took off the glasses and leaned toward me, bracelets clinking up and down her arms. Hazel looked at me as if I was trying to sell her a time-share. Lissa nudged me and tapped her watch. Hazel had eaten up more than an hour and a half. She sliced Hazel a look. That was just Nicky. How soon can you pick up Tristan? I closed the phone with my chin. It sounds like it should be coming out of some s movie diva. Marlene Dietrich or somebody.
God Is Good All the Time. All the Time God Is Good. She was a dead ringer for Rebecca.
My laugh put even Marlene Dietrich to shame. I was trying to edge toward the parking lot where Max was waiting next to the Blazer, doing the combination tap-jazz-hip-hop routine she was constantly in the midst of. But Hazel stopped me with a wave of the Barbie glasses.
- See a Problem??
- Essentials of Quality Circles (Essentials of a Subject Book 4);
- The Deerslayer (Leatherstocking Tale).
I can smell that kind of thing. I want to dog you until I see how you do this master mother thing. I hurried toward Max, and Hazel followed. We have to pick up Tristan. Three blocks is way too far for her to walk by herself. I half expected her to hop into her car and dog me all the way to Boardwalk Fries. I can tell that.
