House of the Matriarch Chapter 26 by Fred L. Taulbee Jr.
Chapter 26 Beth
Chelsea looked around at the other women. “I don’t know. Look. Rebecca’s right. None of this makes any sense.”
“I think it’s because we didn’t uninvite Grandma,” Beth explained
Tyler looked confused and asked, “What do you mean?”

Chapter 27 Ana
The times she was spending in the darkness of her grave were growing shorter. How do I do it? Am I changing? Evolving somehow? Will there be a time when the ground can no longer hold me?

Chapter 28 Rebecca
Rebecca packed her bags. She felt relieved, thawed out. The guilt of her infidelity was off her shoulders and it felt good. There was a little more guilt there, but it was superseded by the fear for now. When she was out of this house she could grieve for Veronica.
And the gift? I have it. I must have it. There’s no way to explain how we cheated with the same men or how I looked for very specific men. Someday she would be able to forestall the bad things that happen in life. She could start all over with a new lover. A man or a woman? All those doors were open now, and she could walk through any of them freely.

Chapter 29 Ana
She had to think again on the goings on. The girls had arrived. They viewed the will on the dvd. They held the séance. One of them killed me, but which one? She remembered controlling Veronica. It had been easy. Her soul was weak from the transition. I controlled her like a marionette, my mind the string. She looked back into her memory at scenes she refused to relive during the last two years of her death as if she knew this was the right path to take in her mind. And she remembered.
