A Warm Motherly Look
My sister smothered the baby to keep it quiet because everyone had paid
good money to hear the guest speaker. What I'm saying is it was not
premeditated or malicious. Now, it is true that it wasn't my sister's baby.
My sister doesn't have any children herself, but does have a warm and
motherly look about her. One assumes this is why she was entrusted with the
baby once the lecture began. It's also true we don't know who the parents
were or how the baby came to be in the lecture hall. Some speculated it was
the guest speaker's baby and this could well be true. The guest speaker
seemed upset when my sister smothered the baby, though it was for her own
benefit and of those in her audience. I was there to do the sound and
lights, which had been my job for the last two years. As for my sister, I
know she'd love to be a mother, but is old-fashioned and reluctant to have a
child out of wedlock.
