His father was sitting at home in his carpet-slippers, waiting for tobacco for his pipe, but when the Little Boy saw the wooden figure he forgot all about hurrying, -" Now don't be long, " his mother had said, and his father had said "Hurry back, "-but he forgot all about hurrying, and stood and looked at the wooden figure a long time: a little hunchbacked man, not so very much taller than himself, on a low wooden box, holding out in one hand a packet of black wooden cigars. His back was terribly humped up between his shoulders, his face was square and bony, if wood can be said to be bony, he was bareheaded and bald-headed, he had a wide mouth, and his high nose curved down over it and his pointed chin curved up under it; and his breast stuck out in front almost as much as his shoulders stuck out behind.

    Medea

    Starts crying and curls into a ball. She rocks back and forth. "Im a screw up. Im a bad person. I hate myself. I deserve to die. I just want your forgiveness. Im sorry. Ive lost everybody. Jason left me. My brother and father. My kids were killed by my husband. You hate me. You were the only one I thought cared. But your cruel and heartless like everybody says. I should have listened and never gotten involved with you. I hate everything. Nobody will ever love me. Harry just wanted my body. You i dont know what you wanted. Im just a empty sheel thats immortal.", Medea says, pouring her heart out.
