My cousin didn't tell me to keep it a secret. Everyone at the reunion thought his dad, Uncle Billy, wasn't there because of work, like Uncle Jesse's wife, Deena. I unleashed a wildfire of whispers. When it reached Uncle Jesse, he wailed - he already knew. Uncle Billy and Deena are married now. They don't come to the reunion any more.
