  Nora was jealous of every female friend or sister in in my life. I had one biological sister and many sisters through the organizations I belonged to. I included Nora  in my circle of friends and sisters. I hoped this and our private sisterhood would satisfy her jealousy.  She was reluctant but, I persuaded her to involve herself  in my social activities. She joined my Girl Scout troop. As I said, she was reluctant. 
 
It made me proud when she was chosen to be on of the color guards.  As she raised her hand and vowed  “ On my honor I will try to do my duty to God and my country and family. I will help others, and I will obey the Girl Scout laws.” 
 
 Nora’s dad, and my mom were in attendance. I saw the pride beaming with Pride. They had every reason to be proud. Nora, looked sharp in her uniform. Because of her and who she was, Nora had been chosen to carry her country’s flag. The only one who wasn’t proud was Nora. 
 
I persuaded Nora to come with me to 4- H. again I was overflowing with pride to hear her pledge her head, Heart, hands, and health in service her family, her community, and others.  Again Nora had joined reluctantly. Soon she made her objections known. 4- H was a hick farmer’s organization. Nora was convinced her destiny lay in grander things. 
 
 
Nora’s  jealousy was apparent when she boycotted my birthday celebration. According to Nora, she left in protest against the time I was spending on my friends Billie, Sara, and Maggie. I attended classes with Billie, and because of our classmate relationship we became friends. During breaks and lunch, I came to know Sara and Maggie. 
 
I felt a special kinship with Billie, she and her sisters were living a home life similar to mine. Like me, they came from a very dysfunctional home.  The mother used her body and sexual power to coax the men from the power company into lowering or paying her bill for her. She did favors for the men from the gas company and her landlord. She dated the man at the community store for food. I tried not to judge “ Little bit.” but, where her daughters were concerned I judged her harshly. How could any mother prostitute her daughters ? How could Billie, Maggie, and Sara, not know prostitution was morally, and legally wrong ? 
 
 Billie wanted me to meet her sister Donna, She wanted the two of us to fall in love, to marry, and to legally adopt her, Maggie, and Sara. Billie also wanted me to adopt her younger siblings, Daisy and Venus. I did not have the heart to tell her what she wanted would never be.  I did not have the will to tell my friend I was emotionally betrothed to Samantha, and Nora. 
 
I persuaded my mom to adopt Billie, Sara, and Maggie. Unfortunately the three girls were taken from their mother to the state reformatory in Columbia, Mississippi. Prostitution and incest are crimes but, in no way was the crimes the fault of Billie, and her sisters. The three girls did not know better. 
 
 When I invited my 4- H club and my Girl Scout troop to the party. It was not my intention to hurt Nora. I would never put anyone before her . Nora was my blood cousin and sister by ward of the court. 
 
After the last guest left, I went in search of Nora. I found her hiding in my grandmother’s house where she and Grandma had spent the afternoon bashing my friends. 
 
I took Nora by the hand and led her to the woodshed. In the secluded privacy of the piles of chopped wood I listened to every word Nora had to say. I apologized if I had in anyway caused her to feel the way she did. Then I quickly pulled her over my knee . “Nora, I love you but, Jealousy and possessiveness will not be tolerated. 
 
When I felt we had come to an understanding I let Nora off my knee . I wiped her pretty face. I dried her beautiful brown eyes and kissed her . Then I reassured her she was blood of my blood and flesh of my flesh. No one would ever come between us. 
 
That afternoon Nora, packed her things and left .
