But there was one very special toy that I had, a small white teddy bear. He became very dirty and worn in the end, because he was so cuddled and loved. But he was always beautiful to me, and a comforting friend on many a lonely night. Of course, he was a gift from my beloved Maman, who told me that he was special because he was white, albino like me, and wondrously beautiful, just as she saw me.
I didn’t take him with me on that fateful night when I fled my parents’ house for good, having killed Papa in revenge for Maman’s murder. But I hope that he found another good home with a child who loved him just as much as I did.
