Throwback Thursday: Bloodsisters
A reading of a piece of creative non-fiction, from 2005 (I think): “Blood Sisters”
In truth, I don’t remember my mother pricking our thumbs (because, she says, we were too afraid to do it ourselves), or the act of us jamming our bleeding digits togther, letting our blood comingle, but I remember that we had heard the story of our own mothers taking a blood oath, and we insisted that we needed to do so as well. I’m told we both cried but I don’t think it was from physical pain, as much as the unconscious realization that we wouldn’t always be together.
