With us today is Michel Prince I asked her to tell us about the world that has surrounded Ellie for years and that she has only recently discovered. Here is her response.
We’ve all had that family member, friend, coworker, classmate, etc that you look at their choices in life and say “really, that made sense in the moment.” We all make mistakes, but some don’t learn until they make that final mistake they can’t come back from. With Ellie she has a family full.
Ellie lost her only companion when her brother Caleb became friends with a child who had been possessed by a demon. Being only eight she really didn’t understand why the one person in her family that actually acknowledged her existence abandoned her. Little did she know that her older brothers and sisters had each been led astray by a demon at one time or another. She knew her siblings were smart it just seems as if they had no common sense and were constantly putting themselves in one disastrous situation after another as if they hadn’t learn from their last mistake.
We take Jennifer her oldest sister; a man beats her…why would have a child with him? And then why would you subject the child to continued degradation and abuse? Better yet, why would you have another baby and another with men just like him? At some point would you not learn about birth control?
Then you have Grace. She doesn’t need to use her body to get ahead. Her need for material things has always baffled Ellie and her willingness to subjugate herself for a necklace or a pair of designer shoes. Again, with Grace Ellie wonders why after the first time why would she repeat the behavior.
When she learns the truth she starts to see how one tip of a domino can set you on a track that derailing may take an act of god, an angel…or maybe a little sister that has a strength of character no one expected.
