BAYOU BLACK, 2009 THE SOLUTION WAS SIMPLE: He would kill his sister. Simple, not easy. Marc kicked the documents to the side, causing them to tear beneath his foot as he cleared the wood floor. He spread the quilt. A riot of triangles, squares, and circles, all in competing colors. He turned it over so the patterns faced the floor and the barren underside of fabric showed. The cloth now lay clean and white. He smoothed out the corners and upon it, began to disassemble his shotgun, neatly laying each black piece in a row.
SHE PULLED INTO THE drive as the sun was shooting slants across the bayou, bending with the golden reeds in the Gulf wind. Even before she switched off the truck’s motor she could hear Marc’s radio blaring from inside the tiny cottage. She made her way up the steps to the front door, under the hip roof above the porch. She hesitated, looking back over her shoulder. Nothing behind her but a spread of bayou. Muffled, booming music came from within the house, so loud she couldn’t even hear the creak of the porch swing as it fidgeted beside her in the breeze.

I’m here. ” “Don’t you start talkin’ like a shrink now. ” She let go of the wooden spoon and the end of it fell to the side of the pan with a soft clang. “All right, I didn’t mean to sound that way. I’m just listening as your sister. ” Another sharp breath, possibly a laugh, but it sounded more like a snort of frustration. She stared out the steamed window, nothing but vague shapes moving on the city street beyond the porch.
