If your mother knew something about you that you didn’t know, would you want to know?
We’re talking life-changing, mind-bending, soul-crushing information. Something that would completely shatter your view of reality. Hell, it would shatter your view of…yourself.
You know she knows something. You know there’s a reason why she’s kept her distance from you…for years now. It’s been tearing you apart inside that she doesn’t treat you the same way as your brother.
What’s so special about him, anyway? The little weirdo.
So, you pull away from her in return. You call her by her first name instead of anything familial. No “Yes, mother. I love you, mother” for her.
But, still. There’s that gnawing feeling that there’s something about you that she doesn’t like. Something horrible on a very visceral level. That you’re the reason behind the complicated relationships in your family.
So? Do you want to know? I mean, of course you want to know. But do you really want to know?
Trust us. You’re better off not knowing that you’re your own cousin.
