There's a tree in my parents' yard that I have never liked. From the moment I first looked at it I knew in an instant to never trust it. You can see it from anywhere in the front yard. You can not not see it from my bedroom. I've always wanted it taken down but they wouldnt hear of it. Years and years and years. Just staring in hostility at that tree.
It got some lichen now and Mother decided it "just isnt pretty any longer". The tree has just been taken down.
I want to know if there's a body under there.
They'd never tell me.
Like, I want to go DIG and see for myself is how much I have never trusted this tree! It would explain so much. A tree where there should not be a tree.
