She has a routine, my mother.
She has an agenda.
She has memorized lines that she spouts off every, single damn time that she walks into my bedroom with another dress. Do you know what I'll tell them, Rory? Do you know what I'll say?
Have you seen my daughter, Aurora Jean? She's the prettiest peach the South has ever seen.
It's not that she's proud of me or believes in me or anything like that, no, no. She puts on her best A game when she waltzes through my bedroom door with another fluffy dress draped over her arm. Half of the time, I think about telling her, I know what you're doing, Mother. I know that you're playing nice and being overly sweet so that I'll actually try on whatever dress that you have on your arm today. More than anything, she's so worried about what her friends might think or that their daughter's are all going to be at this debutante ball dressed in whatever fluffy dress their mother's picked out.
It's during these times that I wish that I could let my voice out of its box.
Out of its cell.
Out of its cage.
I wish that I could tell her what's on my mind or how I feel about this debutante, fluffy dress nonsense. 
Just South of Biloxi is a companion novel to the Asylum Trilogy, but can also be read as a standalone novel. It is the first novella in a two part series. Check it out if you get a chance!
