  • “ You broke my little brother’s heart,” Carlo says in Sicilian. “ Don’t speak that mumbo jumbo at me,” says Dr. Hodge. “ You made him think you were his friend.” Carlo says in Sicilian as he walks toward Dr. Hodge. “You fooled him. But you never fooled me. You broke my broke my baby brother’s heart.” “ No one understands you, old man. No one understands any of you. Get out of my way.” Dr. Hodge walks on. Carlo lunges at him. “ Don’t stab!” yelps Dr. Hodge. He beats Carlo on the head with one fist and pulls out a pistol.” Lord! What’s going on? “Stop!” I shout. “Carlo doesn’t have a knife. He doesn’t have anything.” Dr. Hodge has the pistol in both hands now and he’s using it like a club, smashing Carlo in the forehead. Smashing and smashing, as if he’s lost his mind. Blood gushes.
  • The Surrender Tree Margarita Engle
  • Some people call me a child-witch, but I’m just a girl who likes to watch the hands of the women as they gather wild herbs and flowers to heal the sick. Sometimes I feel like a bee making honey- a bee, feared by all, even though the wild bees of these mountains in Cuba are stingless, harmless, the source of nothing but sweet, golden food.
