Story Notes:

For B2MEM 2011, Day 20: 

Write a story or poem or create an artwork in which a character unaccustomed to acting as a leader must make an important decision.


Diamond kept telling herself she shouldn’t be nervous.  It was only the Harvest Home, and they’d been doing it for years.  Besides, it had been nearly half a year since Mother died, and it wasn’t right to keep letting Father do work meant for two.


“We need a hostess,” she told him, for they did a fair amount of entertaining—or had, until Mother sickened.  They couldn’t stop the Harvest Feast, though, so she had volunteered.


She’d volunteered, so she had no one else to blame.  Nodding, Diamond entered the kitchen, and asked Cook what she remembered from last year.
