I never knew I was different. Growing up you always made me feel like a normal kid. You even let me hang out with you and your friends even though none of them liked me much (beat). You remember that day when jessi's brother called me that naughty word and mama said it was just because he grew up in a family where he didn't learn right from wrong? Well, now I know why he called me that name. It was because I am different. I didn't know i do.(beat) If I wasn't different I wouldn't still live with you, if i wasn't different, he wouldn't have called me names. If I wasn't different, (her anger suddenly turns to tears) I wudda done something, I wudn't have "gotten laid" if I wasn't different, we wouldn't be in this mess and we would still be sisters like we used to be.
