Excerpt

My mother’s sister did not like being called Aunt or Auntie so to me she was always Connie. My mother visited her tiny home three or four times a year. Father would only attend on Connie’s birthday and sit in near silence, his long body spider like in one of Connie’s compact chairs.
Connie was younger than my mother who was the first of four. Despite this she looked very much older. Her hair which was thick and always untidy had a smattering of grey. She was stocky and short whereas my mother and the other sisters were slim and tall.
I think I first noticed the difference the time Connie came to stay with us at the wedding of my older brother Carl. She was ushered in and sat in a dark corner. During the ceremony she caught my eye and waved. I returned it and this was seen by father who glowered at me and then her in turn. I could never meet my father’s eye when he was displeased but Connie smiled and stared back until he looked away, disgust all over his face.
She didn’t stay for the wedding breakfast and when I asked mother why she told me to make myself useful looking after my younger cousins.
I was growing and learning as all boys do and day to day life made me forget my aunt for long periods at a time. Only when a visit was announced would I ponder my strange relative.
It was a mild summer evening and mother and I made our way to Connie’s small house. It was secluded, the nearest town twenty miles south. Connie answered straightaway. Her hair was in its usual tangle and she wore a shapeless, colourful dress. I followed her into the living room fascinated by the clumsy way she moved and her noisy progress. Her breathing was loud and her voice quite painful if I got too close. She dropped her full weight into a tired chair and told me to sit and tell her all that had occurred since we’d last met.
I told her about my studies and of the family. She pulled a face when I mentioned father and seemed unaware of mother’s displeasure. I fought amusement and continued.
What delight I made in her with all the trifling detail of my ordinary life! She chuckled and ruffled my hair. She even kissed my cheek, something mother had never done. It left a feverish spot and a great deal of pleasure.
The time to go came speedily and I was sorry to leave. Connie pressed something in my hand as she stood on tip toe to embrace me. We walked down the narrow path and I turned to wave but Connie had already closed the door.
After we had dined I went to my room and took Connie’s gift from the pocket I had deftly hidden it. It was a photograph. An art my father disliked intensely. A younger Connie beamed out. She was slimmer but still plump and her hair was black. Behind her rose a brooding building. My mother opened my door and had the image from my hand with amazing speed. I did not protest but I begged her not to tell father. She closed my door and put a finger to her lips.
“Connie is different but still one of the family. Don’t accept anything from her again. Do you understand?”
I indicated that I did and she left.
