Wednesday's Women No. 26
Esme Echo was the most beautiful girl in her town. She was also the most feared.
The fact that Esme’s eyes were two different colours was not the reason she was feared. The two different coloured eyes just added to Esme’s beauty. The reason she was feared had nothing to do with her eyes.
Esme was feared because of her ears. You see Esme was able to hear when a lie was spoken. She heard the words and could not help but call out the lie. She didn’t want to do this; it was her genetic makeup.
An example of Esme’s behaviour and why she was feared could go like this.
A woman speaking to her husband might say ‘I will never leave you.’ And Esme overhearing would yell ‘LIE.’ So of course right away the husband would know the truth as Esme was never wrong.
