The Blue Lady is a story is about what happened the night Master died and the relationship between LaLi, Elizabeth and Missy, and how three people with a blood connection wound up dead in the space of four days, at least one of them, Blue, murdered, and how guilt was assigned that night without anyone taking responsibility.

                    • The Blue Lady: Prologue


                      from Sylvia Toy Added 124 3 2

                      Enslaved great great great great great great great grandmother of my new antagonist, telling the story of her relationship with Massa. She is the first ancestor (as yet unnamed) to own the incomplete soul, The Blue Lady, a "ghost" who is the protagonist of this story. The description of the first ancestor by The Blue Lady: "The one who started this incomplete soul, this ghost that I am, still waiting for completion since the 1740's when South Carolina made it illegal for slaves to even grow food for themselves, was a slave who was the great great great great great great great grandmother of my human. This ancestor was the exact same age as the master's daughter and was her playmate. South Carolina also had made it illegal for Negro slaves to learn to read, and the master beat the ancestor to a pulp when she was only 7 years old because he found out her 7 year old mistress had taught her how to read. Having been abused herself, this ancestor beat her son (the great great great great great great) on a regular basis and he in turn was an abuser." The Blue Lady is the story of a family who carries the "boogeyman" of their childhood around all their life. But it's not a boogeyman - it's the "Blue Lady," a photophobic, ghostlike creature. Thanks to all the American History buffs who put timelines on the Web. My knowledge of the history of Negro slavery is not fresh in my mind and pre--Civil War dates are key to creating the story of the ten generations of the Blue Lady's half-life as an unfinished soul. A ghost is not what it seems.
