The Lightning House
Dear Son, I hope this finds you well. It’s been a long time. I’m on an anthropological dig in Palenque, Mexico. There are rebels in the area, and we have been hearing gunshots from the forest at night. I'm afraid I might not be able to contact you for a while, but I love you and hope to see you again. You can find me in Quintana Roo. It’s a small town and I have no address. I live at Casa Relámpagos.
I’m Seth. I lived with the men of my family. My sisters live in the house with the women. My dad was a builder, like I was learning to be. This year he retires and goes to the city to be with Mom. She was a cook, like my sisters are, but once she and Dad are reunited, all their kids will build and cook for them. That’s how it was supposed to be. I’m not sure how many sisters I have. I only really knew Kara, who is eleven now, like me. I was the youngest boy in the house, but my younger brother was born this year in the city. When he turns ten, he’ll know The Ten Rules like you and I do.
