My name is Glorious Day Roberts.  I am sixteen-years-old.  People sometimes call me Glo Ro or Glo. I was named after my grandmother, Granny Glory.  My grandmother, I, and other descendants were named after Glorious Day Shannon, an ancestor who came into the world on the evening that they announced The Emancipation Proclamation. Glorious’s mother birthed her in a dilapidated barn that was filled with cannonball holes from The Union army. They were starving. They wore little more than rags. Had nothing more than nearly-meatless pork chop bones and three sweet potatoes, as the story goes. Even though her parents had no idea what they were going to do with their new-found freedom, it was a “glorious day.” 

The name went either way, like Tracy, Kelly, or Jodie. Sometimes our Glorious Days were males; sometimes they were females. Perhaps it’s coincidence, but I’m told that most Glorious Days were extraordinary; if not extraordinary, memorable: 

One had eleven fingers.

One had an almost telepathic relationship with animals.

One was afflicted with albinism.

One was a prolific carpenter.

One discovered a new mineral, Glorovite, in the bowels of a cave in Utah.

Me? I guess my most notable feature is my height of nearly six feet and my big, big curly hair that comes in the door before the rest of me. Other than that, I’m just nosey. What really happened to Amelia Earhart? What’s really up with aurora borealis? Crop circles? Those are the biggies. For now, I just have to settle for getting to the bottom of things in my world.

“My world” is Minty Moon, Texas, forty minutes north of Dallas. Our town was founded in the late nineteenth century, shortly after Texas won its independence from Mexico.  It’s a place of major contradictions.

There are lush, rolling hills in some places and flat, dusty plains in others.  

It’s sunny and seventy degrees one week, snowing the next.

You might have an infestation of jack rabbits one year, and see none the next.  

The story goes that settlers came here and said, “What a strange place.  Nobody in his right mind would stay here—not even the man in the moon!”  The Texas drawl slowly but surely played on that phrase until it became “Minty Moon.”  Our town is a place where country meets city; too big to be a small town, too small to really be a city. We are famous for our fluffy yet flaky biscuits and bread pudding at The Bear Trap Café (the stuffed bear in the entry always frightened me as a child.) and friendly people, but there are already Wi-Fi connections in nearly every place of business. . .  

Anyway, our home on Monarch Terrace is the first house on the right, after you turn off Viceroy Place (We live on one of the “butterfly” streets. There’s also Swallowtail Court and Caterpillar Drive). It’s good-sized, no mansion, but interesting enough to get a second look.  It’s a one-story, three-bedroom, two-bath ivory house with caramel trim; ivy creeps and swirls up porch posts and the backyard fence.  Passersby take in the details: the brown mailbox that matches the trim on the eaves, and the knee-high version of a rustic maroon wagon, filled with perennial flowers on our lawn’s edge.  They stop by, smile and point; always saying something like, “Pretty house you’ve got,” or “Lovely home.”  

If they only knew. 

If only they knew what I knew, they might have thought differently.  The ivory house with caramel trim and creeping ivy was haunted.  I mean, there were no flickering lights, or sudden cold drafts, but there was something. . .   

In the way my parents often gazed at me and then quickly looked away.  

In the way my mother looked almost frightened if I just scraped my knee.

About my parents’ muffled talking at night a year ago, when they believed I was asleep.

I heard them say, “She would have been–” She who?  Me?  If not me, then who?

I had a dream a few nights after I heard my parents talking.  I was five-years-old again and got a doll for Christmas. It looked like me, but I knew wasn’t me.  The doll wept without sound.  I wiped the doll’s tears off her cheek and put my wet finger in my mouth.  Her tears tasted like ginger ale.  

When my parents were away at work and I was home alone last summer, I decided that I was going to find The Something that Someone Would Have Been. I spent a week just thinking about it. Did I dare?  My mother had always told me that it was “not nice” to even go into her purse without permission.  I cooked up enough courage to look through a bulging shoe box that was marked “Insurance Papers.”  It sat on the top shelf of the coat closet.  The contents actually matched the label.  Big let-down.  I realized that I didn’t even know what I was looking for anyway.  How would I know when I found it?It took three more days of carefully going through every inch of my parents’ closets, storage chests and drawers.  I was cautious, so I would not disturb anything.  I had no luck at first, but then I found The Something in my father’s study.  It was in the bottom drawer of his file cabinet, hidden under old tax returns in an unmarked envelope the color of dark pee.  I knew it was The Something because the soda-crying doll dream nudged me when I opened it. . .
