‘Rebellious! Ungrateful! Uncaring! Unprincipled!’
Aunt Winnie’s finger wags. Her words flick like a whip.
‘Callous! Irresponsible! Utterly self-centred! No consideration whatsoever for anyone but your wicked, deceitful, spoiled self!’
‘And you can wipe that superior smirk off your face, young woman! If I’d behaved a quarter as appallingly as you do when I was your age, you may be sure it would have been beaten out of me!’
