Uncle Tully, THEN:
From The Dark Unwinding
My uncle was staring at the paper in my hand, the blue eyes unblinking, blood burgeoning beneath the wrinkles of his skin. His arm seemed to twitch, and before I could move or even comprehend what was happening, something made of glass had flown from my uncle’s hand and exploded, smashing into a thousand shards on the desk beside me. I stood there, dumbfounded, bits of glass sticking to my dress. The minuet played on, oblivious.
            “No!” my uncle screamed. He was shaking, his red face something demonic. “No, no, no!”
            Lane sprang forward, hands out. “Put it down!” he shouted over his shoulder.
            I dropped the peacock drawing as if it burned, still staring, but not before uncle Tulman had launched himself at me, arms outstretched.
Uncle Tully, NOW:
From A Spark Unseen
            The knot in my insides was now an agonizing weight, the tears I could not prevent rolling freely down my cheeks. The clocks in the room struck a multi-note clang, marking the half hour. I felt a feather-light touch on my sleeve.
            “Here, Simon’s baby,” said Uncle Tully. I looked down to see the brass flower sitting in his palm. When I waited, he pushed it into my hand. “Here. You like the flower.”
            I took the intricate, shining thing, amazed at this freedom, feeling its weight like a bloom of pure gold in my hands. And Uncle Tully had given it to me to hold. He might as well have told me he loved me.
