want to hear anything that he has to say. Son offers to take her on a picnic and she agrees against her better judgment. On the picnic Jadine gets to know more about Son. How he got on the island where he came from and what life he left behind. Everything was going fine until Son started commenting on her feet he became almost obsessed with seeing them and then touching them. Shortly after Son touched her foot Jadine pulled it away and said that she was ready to leave the whole situation made her very uncomfortable. Even as Jadine walked back to the car she still felt Son’s thumb print on the sole of her foot. Then came the “Dinner”. Christmas finally arrived and everyone sat down at the table for dinner even Sydney and Ondine. At first it was a little silent, then

everything went crazy and everyone’s true feelings came out. Sydney revealed how he felt about Son staying in the house. Ondine and Margaret got into a huge argument that almost broke out into a fist fight. Ondine let out a big secret that she had been holding back for years. She told everyone that when Michael, the Street’s son, was younger Margaret used to stick him with pins to see him cry or bleed. At that moment everyone just stopped. Margaret admitted to it. Sydney lead Ondine back to their room, Margaret left the dinning room and eventually Son and Jadine left . Valerian sat at the table alone. Sometime during the picnic and the dinner something happened with Jadine and Son. After they left the dinning room son walked Jadine to her room and the made plans to leave. Son

was going to leave first and wait for Jadine in NYC Son agreed because he wanted to be with Jadine. Jadine was happy to go back to NY because she loved the place so much. Jadine and Son just wanted to be together. Jadine didn’t dare tell her aunt about her plans to be with Son she knew that Ondine already had enough problems. She also knew that Ondine would disapprove. Once Jadine met up with Son in NY they were instantly in each others arms. During the first few days everything is going fine but Jadine starts to bother Son about getting a job or going to school, she feels that she is doing all the work in the relationship. Son is not interested in doing either at that moment. He is not comfortable in NY and is trying to convince Jadine to go back to his hometown Eloe with him.

After a lot of convincing Jadine finally agrees to go with him. Eloe is a small town in Florida with a few people and even less houses. Jadine is not use to this kind of atmosphere and is ready to leave the second she gets there. The one thing that makes the trip even worse is the fact that Son’s family is very religious. Since Son and Jadine are not married, Jadine must stay at Son’s aunt’s house. Jadine is in a little room with no windows and feels cramped. Jadine is glad when it is time to leave but son asks her to stay one more day she agrees unwillingly. The next day the same thing happens and Son asks Jadine to stay one more day this time she refuses and tells Son that she will go back to NY by herself. Son agrees to this and promises that he would be there in the

next few days. More than a few days pass and Jadine doesn’t even hear from Son. More than a week later Son shows up and Jadine is mad. This causes an argument which is quickly ended like all the others. In the days to follow the arguments increase and get worse. Jadine and Son argue about everything, money, Son going to school, living in NY. Ironically no matter how bad the argument it never lasted long and they always ended up in each others arms. On day the argument got so bad that Son held Jadine out the second story window by her arms. A few minutes later when the police came to the door they thought that they had the wrong house. The apartment of loving couple that answered the door could not have been the same apartment where a man had a woman dangling out of the window.

One day Jadine could not take it anymore. After a huge argument Son stormed out of the house and Jadine at that moment decided to leave and not look back. She realized that her relationship with Son was a big mistake. Jadine left NY and went back to L’Arbe de la Croix. She tells Ondine about her time with Son and she told Ondine that she knows that she was wrong and if Son was to come looking for her not to tell him where she went. Ondine readily agrees to do this. Jadine gets some stuff and leaves for Paris. Meanwhile, when Son returns to the apartment he is surprised not to see Jadine there. He sits and waits for her. He refuses to leave the house in fear that she might come back while he is gone. After about a week Son decides to go back to L’ Arbe de la Croix to see if
