Her mama told her to always be cautious, to suspect the worst of everyone and everything. To stay safe, above all. "Caution makes safe!" her mama told her. And she lived her life by her mama's words, to the extent that she developed a deeply rooted suspicion of the world at large.
When I met her, she admitted that it had made her aloof and alone. Still, she would not, could not change.
"At least I am safe!" she said.
"I will always be safe!" was her parting words to me.
Somehow, I'm not so sure.
