By the Time the Sun Rises

inspired by the play ¨'night, Mother¨ by Marsha Norman.

Serena has given up hope. She cannot have a good life. The only person she has to live for is her mother....but now she may end up giving up on her, too.
¨Goodnight, Mama. By the time the sun rises, I'll be gone.¨

¨Well, Mama, I've made a decision.¨

Mama scrubbed a plate that was streaked with spaghetti sauce. ¨And what is that, Rena?¨

¨I'm going to die tonight.¨

Mama sighs. ¨Oh, Rena don't be ridiculous. What would you die from? The cancer is gone, remember?¨

Rena starts stacking the plates that she's dried. ¨A gunshot wound to the head.¨

¨And who would cause that wound? Who's firing the gun?¨

Rena takes a deep breath. ¨I am.¨
