A Devoted Niece, by Emma Baird

Last night, I wrote to Aunt Maisy.
I know, most people email these days, but Aunt Maisy is old-fashioned. She loves a letter, especially nowadays when all you get in the mail are flyers for sofa sales and begging letters from charities.
I type faster than I write, but in keeping with the old-fashioned theme, Aunt Maisy’s letter is hand written.
It’s creative writing. Aunt Maisy has certain ideas about me. She thinks me loyal and devoted.
My aunt has two other nieces. And a huge house in London. And health that continues to deteriorate.
I’m loyal and devoted, alright.
