Here is the photograph and my story:
Remember when she passed for white? Not that she knew it. Of course she didn’t know it. But then it started passing around her Ivy League sorority… The Homecoming Queen had something to hide.
The Homecoming game was, as anticipated, won by the home team. As their Queen, after the game, she threw pink and red and white rose petals onto the field. She was lovely. So beautiful and regal. A prize for any man who’d claim her. Until…
Later… “Move away, now! Move away!” ordered the campus police. They were waiting for local enforcements to arrive.
She’d remained untouched since her body had been found in her dorm room. Gold safety pins, holding good bye notes, were attached to her homecoming gown. One in particular came to muddy the day:
“So much more I wanted for thee and me, love…Sweet Elise.”
