Sure, my hair was a reddish color, and Daddy's was raven, though I knew plenty of genetics from biology in school. I knew enough to understand that I could never look exactly like my parents. I had always assumed that my red hair came from some ancestor, maybe late down the family tree, and my emerald eyes, I had inherited them from Mama. My skin was fair, though I had a light bush of freckles that coated the area around my nose, and slightly under my eyes.


The author's comments:
I didn't get inspired by anything while writing this, or anything. I just wrote, and this is what happened. I was quite pleased with this, and it's only a small part of what I have. I'm not too ready to bring out the rest yet, since it's not quite finished. I hoped that people would understand that something wasn't quite write in the character's family by this, but it's not too obvious or anything.
