My eye hurts really bad. It feels like it is on fire as the tears roll down my face.
Matt is screaming again. He poked me in the eye on purpose. We are both screaming now.
I told Grandma that I hate Matt.
She didn’t tell me that I should feel lucky that I am normal. Nor did she say that I shouldn’t be upset since Matt can’t help it. She didn’t tell me that Matt has it harder either. Those were the things that Mommy and Aunt Grace said.
She didn’t push me away to comfort Matt.
Instead, Grandma picked me up and rocked me in her gentle arms. She sang me beautiful songs until my tears dried and I fell asleep.
