The thought of death smoked around her. Of dying like a snail poured over with salt, like a black bird Maggie had found--stiff and hard. She knew that if he let her live, if her heart kept beating, that any life she lived, any road she took, would always lead her back to them--back to him. Like a rotted seed taking root, burrowing through her belly, her gut, his eyes whispered that she was their thing now. They owned her.

Them Lawmen drag her out to that hill past Marion Lake. It musta been then they slide on they white hoods. The moon, it was nearly full and bright. From up there Neva musta been able to see her Daddy's land. All them fresh-harvested acres. Maybe that's where she fix her eyes while them Klux keep her out there for hours--doin' what God ain't got the muscle to look at.
