I hear Alice lives in the shed?
What of it? She's a damn sight safer out there where she hardly sees him than in there within his reach.
What did I do that was so wrong? You were embarrassed too.
I was embarrassed for her but I wasn't ashamed of no-one but you.
Why? Why am I not like everybody else? I want to be...
What? What you want to be?
I want to be a real girl...
My husband don't agree none. He says she devil-tached.
That's great, Alice, What subjects are you studying?
I learn... reading and writing... I write letter to Sammy! And I learn... I learn twestion marks and commies too.
Really? Well, Sammy, did that letter have any "twestion marks" or "commies" in it?
Sammy, Ellie! Help...!
That bastard beat her up!
I don't care, if everybody in the whole world laughs at my twestion marks and my commies.
What do you say, Grammie? Will you tutor her?
Tutor her? Child, I don't think my house can survive tutoring her....
